How to reduce the signs of ageing on your neck
The skin on the neck is extremely fragile, and although it is exposed to the same environmental and chemical toxins as the face, it often gets little or no attention in our daily skincare regimes.
It’s for this reason that, as we grow older, the skin on the neck can begin to droop and wrinkle.
We’ve compiled the best non-surgical cosmetic procedures to help you give your neck the much-needed attention it deserves.
Accent Skin tightening with Radio Frequency
Accent RF treatments work effectively to tighten the skin on the neck, making it an effective treatment for lax-looking skin. It works by utilising the skin’s own resistance to radiofrequency energy, transforming it into heat energy which causes an immediate (although temporary) tightening of the collagen fibres in the skin.
This controlled injury leads to increased collagen production in the area, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and tighter appearance.
In addition to loose or sagging skin, vertical bands are another major factor in damaging the appearance of the neck. These rope-like bands, known as ‘turkey neck’, occur when the thin sheet of muscle (the platysma) on the neck begins to separate and sag due to the effects of gravity and ageing.
Botulinum toxin injections can work effectively to block signals to this sheet of muscle, preventing it from contracting and causing these unsightly bands. Known as the ‘Nefertiti’ lift (named after the youthful jawline of the Egyptian queen) botulinum toxin injections in the lower jaw and neck can create a firmer looking jawline and smoother neck.
Whichever of the above neck wrinkle treatments you are interested in, it’s important to remember that as they are non-surgical procedures, they’re not regulated by law.
