People who tend to religiously follow a rigorous daily skincare regimen are able to maintain the youth on their faces and look beautiful – These people mostly come to our medspa “Syra Aesthetics” to get help for concerns relating to the appearance of their necks. While they have been applying sunscreen, moisturizers, and other skincare products to their faces all these years, the majority of the people missed including their necks in their regimen, which leads them to end up with wrinkles and lines on their necks. Luckily for them, now there are several non-surgical treatments that can be opted to get rid of neck wrinkles.
The skin on your neck, unlike your face, is much more delicate – and requires just as much, if not more care than facial skin. It is never too late to start working on your neck wrinkles, whether you are planning to prevent neck wrinkles from being formed or you are seeking the best treatments for neck wrinkles that are already there.
This blog sheds light on everything you need to know inclusive of what causes neck wrinkles, how to prevent neck wrinkles, along with the most effective neck wrinkle treatments.
What Causes Neck Wrinkles?
In order for anyone to understand the prevention and treatment of neck wrinkles, it is important to understand how they are formed and what causes them.
The causes of neck wrinkles include:
While quitting smoking is just generally a good idea for all health-related reasons, it specifically happens to be the truly worst culprit that makes your skin look older and unhealthy.
Best Treatment For Neck Wrinkles
A few decades ago, anyone who was concerned regarding their wrinkled or sagging neck skin, only had surgical options available and had to opt to get cosmetic surgery in order to improve the appearance of their necks. The development and introduction of non-invasive and minimally-invasive treatment options have altered the entire landscape of the aesthetic industry.
There are still some clients who prefer and want to opt for neck lift surgeries to attain the best possible outcome – However, nonsurgical treatments have proven to be very effective for people who are not prepared to go for plastic surgery.
The most effective neck wrinkle treatments include:
Certain hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® products are very effective in smoothening the lines that are developed on the neck. Fillers that include thinner gels are mostly used for the reduction of necklines as they have a much lower risk of causing the “Tyndall effect.” This usually occurs when injectors use the fillers way too close to the skin, creating a bluish-green hue.
This treatment, being the most popular one among all, is well-known for the reduction of the appearance of crow’s feet and worry lines around the eyes, along with minimizing horizontal forehead wrinkles but it’s also effective when used in the neck. BOTOX injections reduce the appearance of platysmal bands on the neck as well.
This treatment is also an effective nonsurgical skin tightening procedure. It’s a non-invasive procedure that heats the skin’s deeper layers using ultrasound energy. The heat then triggers the production of new collagen, which in turn helps both tighten as well as the lifting of the skin on the neck.
How To Prevent Neck Wrinkles?
It’s never too late to begin a daily regimen that includes the neck. Here are some tips for preventing necklines:
Moisturize: The routine you follow to help prevent facial wrinkles can be used for the neck. Moisturizing your neck daily helps keep skin hydrated so the collagen and elastin can do their jobs keeping your skin taut and plump. Use an oil-free formula to avoid clogging the pores.
Apply sunscreen: Most people already know the benefits of using a sunscreen every day, but have not applied it to their necks. To begin, use a high-quality product with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
Take screen breaks: This is really about paying attention to your posture. Most of us are tucking our chins to look at phones or laptops much of the day, and that can take a toll on the elasticity of the skin on your neck.
Neck exercises: Strengthening the neck muscles can help keep your skin smooth. How? When your muscles are tighter, they pull on the skin that covers them. This can result in a tightening of sagging skin and smoothing of neck wrinkles.
