Horizontal Neck Lines : Treatments and Benefits

Horizontal neck lines, often referred to as “necklace lines” or “tech neck,” come in varying depths and severities. They can be broadly categorized into fine lines, moderate lines, and deep creases. These lines are caused by a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic aging leads to a natural decline in collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin laxity and the formation of lines. Extrinsic factors include repetitive motions, such as frequently looking down at phones and computers, which exacerbate these lines. Additionally, prolonged sun exposure, dehydration, and lifestyle factors like smoking can accelerate the development of horizontal neck lines.

Addressing these lines often requires a combination of treatments targeting both skin hydration and structural support. Here’s a detailed breakdown of how the options you provide can help address neck lines:

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers

  • Crosslinked HA Fillers: These are often used for deeper lines and wrinkles. They provide volume and smooth out pronounced lines by plumping the skin.
  • Non-Crosslinked HA: This type is typically used for skin hydration and superficial fine lines. It improves the overall skin texture and hydration, giving a more youthful appearance.

Amino Acid Injectables

  • Amino acid injectables can stimulate collagen production, improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of neck lines. They nourish the skin, helping to rebuild the skin’s support structure.

Salmon DNA Polynucleotide

  • Known for its regenerative properties, Salmon DNA Polynucleotide can improve skin texture and elasticity. It helps in the repair and regeneration of skin cells, thus reducing fine lines and improving the overall appearance of the neck.

RF Microneedling (Radiofrequency Microneedling)

  • Combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy. The microneedles create micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production, while the RF energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, further promoting collagen and elastin production. This dual action effectively reduces fine lines and tightens the skin.

Monopolar Radiofrequency

  • This procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. It is non-invasive and can help reduce the appearance of neck lines by firming the skin.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

  • Uses focused ultrasound energy to target the deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen production and tightening the skin. It can be effective for lifting and tightening the neck area, thus reducing the appearance of lines.

Treatment Plan

A combination of the above treatments often provides the best results. Here’s what to expect at Dr D Aesthetic clinic:

  1. Initial Consultation: Assessment of skin’s condition and specific needs by our qualified medical doctors.
  2. Hydration and Initial Improvement:
    • Use non-crosslinked HA for hydration and superficial improvement.
    • Consider amino acid injectables or salmon DNA polynucleotide to nourish the skin and stimulate initial collagen production.
  3. Deep Line Treatment:
    • Use crosslinked HA fillers for deeper lines if necessary.
  4. Skin Tightening and Collagen Stimulation:
    • Incorporate RF microneedling to improve skin texture and promote collagen.
    • Use monopolar RF or HIFU for deeper skin tightening.
  5. Maintenance:
    • Regular sessions of non-crosslinked HA or amino acid injectables to maintain hydration and elasticity.
    • Periodic RF, RF microneedling or HIFU sessions to sustain collagen production and skin tightening.


Each person’s needs will vary, so customizing the treatment plan based on their skin condition, the severity of neck lines, and their overall aesthetic goals is crucial. Regular follow-ups to assess progress and adjust treatments will help achieve the best outcomes.

This multi-faceted approach leverages the strengths of each procedure, leading to a comprehensive improvement in the appearance of neck lines.
