Are you sure you give your neck all love and care it deserves? Statistically, more than 50% of women take care of the skin on their necks much less than on their faces. And the question is, why? In fact, it is also exposed to the sun and other negative factors of the environment. Moreover, it suffers the physical movements every time we lower our heads (remember how many times you bow your neck to check the phone during the day). That is why the neck gets older even faster than the face. Indeed, you may observe the first ‘circles’ round your neck even in your twenties. Let us figure out the most effective ways to take care of the skin on this tender area, prevent and eliminate aging signs for a smooth, elastic, beautiful, and younger-looking neck.
All of us love the sun. Unfortunately, long exposure to the sun has a negative impact on our skin. The ultra-violet rays ruin molecules of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin in the tissues, destroying their frame. The skin becomes loose, loses hydration. Hello, pigmentation and wrinkles. Thank heaven, people know that sun cream for the face is compulsory during the hot season. Now, all we have to do is to remember that the neck and hands also need protection (if not even more) from the sun. If you follow this recommendation, you will have to start thinking about how to make your neck look younger a little bit later.
Once you have decided it’s time to treat your neck more seriously, you may get lost in all this variety of creams, serums, essences, vitamins, and so on, every one promising smooth results, hydration, and anti-aging effect. Do not rush to sweep away the shelves of the drug stores. Cosmetologists say that all this is great, but if you want something really effective, pay attention to cosmetic remedies with a retinoid. This ingredient can do real wonders to the skin: repair the sun damage, eliminate fine wrinkles, smooth the texture, even the tone from inside, boosting collagen and elastin production processes.
Sometimes, even with a smooth and beautiful neck, a double chin can become an issue. And the trick is that it should not be compulsory as a consequence of obesity. Slim and skinny people may have it too with age. Fortunately, a non-invasive technique called Kybella treatment can easily help you get rid of it. The procedure includes a series of local deoxycholic acid injections into the area of the chin and jawline. This substance destroys fat cells. Thus, the organism digests what is left, and you obtain a slim and defined chin with no long and painful downtime.
Even the most proper skincare routine sometimes is not enough, especially if we are talking about aging. In this case, neck injections become a wonderful solution to return the skin to its smooth and young-looking appearance. To smooth out the skin and lift it, Botox injections for neck wrinkles can provide excellent results. Botox injections into the submental area and jawline can reduce horizontal lines and lift the contours by eliminating platysma muscle contraction. Just fifteen minutes and a few shots of botulinum toxin can erase the last few years out of your neck for the next 4-6 months.
If you are looking for more alternative ways on how to get rid of neck wrinkles, fillers with hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxide can quickly and effectively eliminate wrinkles of different types, smooth the texture, tighten the skin, and lift contours, making the skin looking much younger and healthier. Hyaluronic acid provides immediate improvements, while calcium hydroxide takes some time to show results as it works on the cell level, boosting inner collagen and elastin production processes. In any case, neck filler injections fill in the creases and hollow areas in the skin, eliminating all aging signs.
Do not hurry up to lie under the scalpel of a plastic surgeon when modern cosmetology offers so many alternative methods. One of them is laser therapy. We know that lasers remove unwanted hair, old or bad tattoos, scars, pigmentation, etc. And yes, this innovative technology is extremely effective for skin rejuvenation either on the face or neck. Short, concentrated beams of light remove the damaged layers of the skin one by one, evening the texture and overall skin tone. Moreover, it stimulates inner renewal processes and boosts the production of collagen and elastin. So, you can obtain a more beautiful and younger neck without surgery.
Dark spots are the result of long exposure to the sun. More often, they appear on the face, neck, and hands. It happens when the ultraviolet lights destroy the natural pigment in the skin, and at that place, the skin becomes darker (mainly, different shades of brown). Intense pulsed light therapy (IPLT) is close to the laser. However, it releases many different wavelengths of light. So it is more scattered and less targeted. During the procedure, the brown pigment in the skin tissues absorbs the light. This light is gradually converted into heat that, in its turn, destroys the brown and red pigment in the tissues.
Above, we were talking about different alternative and minimal-invasive ways to smooth and lift the neck. However, there are cases when surgery is the best variant. If the skin is very wrinkled, loose, and even saggy, then the doctor would have to suggest you remove it with the help of plastic surgery.
Moreover, you could resort to face & neck liposuction surgery to make it slimmer, more defined, and younger-looking.
Beauty and youth are complex approaches. You cannot look equally young and attractive, having a fresh and smooth face but wrinkled neck or hands. The skin on the body is also sensitive and exposed to various negative impacts. It requires care and love. If it occurred that you neglected your neck in the past, do not despair. It is never too late to start taking care of it, and modern cosmetology has more than enough to offer you: skincare products, sun protection creams, remedies with retinoid, Botox injections for neck wrinkles, dermal fillers injections, laser, light therapy, and finally, plastic surgery. Consult your cosmetologist, and we are sure that with some time and a little bit of effort, your neck will look as young and beautiful as you wish!
