Neck Sagging & Wrinkles
As we age, the skin on the neck loses collagen and elastin. This leads to thin and less pliable skin on the neck which gives rise to wrinkles. Loss of fat and skin thickness also leads to the appearance of neck sagging.
WHAT CAUSES NECK SAGGING & WRINKLES?
As we age, the skin on the neck loses collagen and elastin. This leads to thin and less pliable skin on the neck which gives rise to wrinkles. Loss of fat and skin thickness also leads to the appearance of neck sagging. This is further exacerbated by the shortening and loosening of the platysma muscle around the neck hence causing sagging and banding. The main neck complaint that we see at City Skin Clinic is neck sagging with visible bands as well as wrinkling of the skin.
WHAT ARE THE BEST TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR NECK SAGGING & WRINKLES?
Thankfully there are a number of treatment options for forehead wrinkles and frown lines. The first step is to ensure that you have a good skincare routine which helps hydrate, nourish and protect your skin.
Botox® Non-Surgical Neck Lift (Or Nefertiti Neck Lift) For Neck Sagging & Bands
Botox® anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective for smoothing out wrinkles and lines on the skin. Furthermore, Botox® can be injected to relax the platysma muscle as well as other muscles that pull on the neck or jawline.This procedure is known as the Botox® non-surgical neck lift or Nefertiti neck lift. The effect of this is that it lifts and sculpts the neck as well as jawline. The treatment takes 3-4 weeks to work and last for 3-4 months.
Dermal Fillers For Neck Wrinkles
If the main concern is deep lines or wrinkles on the face and a sagging jawline, then dermal fillers provide an ideal non-invasive procedure. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers smooth put wrinkles and can also be used to sculpt the jawline and lower face and upper neck.
Skin Boosters For Neck Sagging & Wrinkles
Profhilo injectable moisturiser and collagen induction therapy can be used to smooth out wrinkles, improve texture and regenerate collagen and elastin in the skin. A course of these treatments can help tighten and firm up the neck with long-lasting results.
Anti-Ageing Prescription Skincare for Neck Wrinkles
Prescription anti-ageing skincare can help improve the texture, smoothness and quality of the skin on the neck. Tretinoin is the mainstay of prescription skin ageing treatments. It is clinically proven to reduce the signs of skin ageing including skin laxity, lines and wrinkles. It can be combined with skin transformation systems like Obagi Nu Derm and Obagi-C if you also want to treat severe hyperpigmentation such as age spots or melasma due to skin ageing and photo-damage.
