Tech Neck

What is tech neck?

Tech neck is a newly adopted term for changes in skin appearance that result from prolonged and constant forward flexion of the neck as we concentrate on our cell phones, mobile devices, tablets and other technologies. Changes in the appearance of the neck skin can range from mild to severe horizontal folds and wrinkles, to minor scattered folds across the neck. Additionally, muscle aches and pains may set in and bone spurs can sometimes develop in severe cases.

What procedures can be done to help the tech-neck lines and wrinkles?

Botox is injected in diluted form and placed intradermally, which is a much different technique than the technique used for facial wrinkle Botox injections. The Botox calms the muscle contraction, which eases the appearance of the neck lines. Results are noticed in a week or two. The cost is about $400.

Dermal fillers several injectable products, including Juvederm, Restylane and Restylane Refyne, which are all hyaluronic acid-based fillers, can be used to fill the tech neck lines and wrinkles. These injections need to be repeated every six to 12 months, depending on the amount of product used and the severity of the lines. Results are immediate, and the procedure starts at $600 and goes up from there.

Plasma pen is newer technology, which uses plasma energy (tiny lightning bolts or Tesla coils) to promote skin resurfacing and re-molding. While a fairly new technology and treatment, the initial results have been promising. This treatment does carry with it a couple days of social down time, as the treatment area is left red and spotted for a couple days after treatment. Full results are noticed in few weeks and usually only one treatment is required for desirable results, although severe lines and wrinkles could require follow-up treatments.. Cost is about $900 and goes up from there depending on the size of the treatment area.

Radio-frequency microneedling: GeniusInfini or Fractora: These are radiofrequency energy based technologies that target the deep layers of the skin to promote collagen and elastin remolding to rejuvenate the deep dermal layer. The result is tighter, smoother and youthful looking skin.

What is the after procedure care?

After procedure care is different with each modality. Your medical provider will explain the post-procedure instructions and care, which should be followed diligently.

What skincare products can I used on my tech neck lines?

To optimize results Neck Lyft cream will continue to tighten, smooth and hydrate the delicate skin of the neck.
