We spend so much time looking for the best products and treatments to keep our faces looking young but an area that people often forget to take care of is the neck. Our necks can reveal a lot about our age. This area of skin loses significant elasticity as we get older causing it to noticeably sag and wrinkle.
We can’t stop the natural aging process of our necks but the sooner we intervene and look after our neck area, the better. Here is Doctor Hayley Elsmore’s 7 top treatments and tips that can help reduce the signs of ageing and keep our neck's looking youthful.
Invest in great quality skincare
Prevention is key with looking after our skin. It is important to start including the neck in your anti-aging skincare routine to help keep the skin youthful and protected. Moisturising down your neck, as well as your face can help to reduce signs of ageing and keep the skin hydrated.
Support your skin from within
As we age, our natural collagen levels deplete which results in our skin losing elasticity and increase in wrinkles. It is also more prone to sagging and drooping. Collagen supplements are great additional support for our skin, providing anti-wrinkle benefits and increasing skin elasticity.
Boost your collagen production through microneedling
Microneedling helps to stimulate your skin’s natural healing process to produce more collagen and elastin. This treatment on your neck can help to firm and smooth the skin, rejuvenating the neck area and helping with the appearance of wrinkles and skin texture.
Tighten skin with radiofrequency
Much like microneedling, Morpheus 8 is known for its award winning results in promoting collagen production through fine needles but with an added innovation of emitting radiofrequency energy into the skin layers. The introduction to heat in this process promotes elastin and hyaluronic acid production at a greater level to tighten the skin, improve texture and reduce signs of aging.
Firm skin with super injectable moisturisers
Profhilo is one of our most favoured treatments at the clinic to target sagging and wrinkled skin on the neck. It is strategically placed across the areas of the neck to reduce wrinkles and tightens and firms the skin. Its highly concentrated formula will stimulate and boost natural collagen and elastin production which will help with the skins appearance in looking more youthful and rejuvenated.
Improve appearance of stringy neck bands with muscle relaxers
Botox injections can successfully treat neck bands by relaxing the muscles in the neck to create a smoother appearance. The muscles found in the neck have a tendancy to pull downward which in the long term can cause sagging. By relaxing the muscles that pull down the jaw line, Botox can have an undeniable mellowing effect to improve the appearance of your neck and jaw area for a tighter, more youthful look.
Double chin reduction with Deso
A double chin can come from excess skin laxity which comes with age. Deso in an injectable used to treat localised, stubborn areas of fat that won’t shift, no matter how much a patient diets or exercises. It is injected under the skin to break down fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, firmer, and more contoured jaw and chin area.
