20 Products for a Firmer, Tighter Jawline

The A Method by Tina Alster, MD Neck Firming Cream ($67.50)

Apply this thick cream at night to stimulate collagen production as you sleep thanks to all-trans retinol, a high concentration of amino acid L-carnitine, smoothing arnica Montana, caffeine and taurine. The combination of actives helps tighten and tone the appearance of saggy skin while reducing the look of deep creases and evening skin tone.

“A common concern for many of my patients is neck sagging,” says founder and Washington, D.C. dermatologist Tina Alster, MD. “The ‘turkey neck’ appearance results from weakening of the platysma muscle that runs from the jawline down the neck to the clavicle. When this muscle loses its strength, jowls form and the skin under the chin loosens and sags. This laxity can be corrected with surgical lifting and noninvasive procedures such as Ultherapy and Silhouette InstaLift, but a running head start to reduce the severity of neck sagging can be accomplished at home.”
