It's no secret that we all want to look young. We follow strict skin care regimes, use good quality skin care products; yet most of us neglect the part of our body that is quick to show signs of ageing.........our neck.
Our necks are constantly exposed to the sun, sprayed with strong chemicals in perfume and forgotten about in skincare routines. We all tend to neglect them. Shame. It is no surprise then that the neck is often the first area to show unpleasant signs of ageing.
Signs of this premature ageing could be uneven skin tones, pigmentation issues or sunspots. This constant neglect also causes us to lose elasticity, which can result in sagging or wrinkled skin. Even if we take excellent care of our faces, all of these signs of ageing can combine to make us look much older than we really are.
This sagging and discoloured skin is often what leads people to seek cosmetic treatment for their necks. Many people want to remove the excess skin around the jaw or neck to restore their youthful appearance. Fortunately, there are non-invasive steps that can be taken to help protect and repair the skin on your neck.
- Using a daily sunscreen to protect your neck from further UV damage is vital in any skincare regime. We often stop sunscreen application at the jawline when in fact, we should continue right down to include our chest and 'decolletage' area as they are parts of our body more often to exposure.
- Anti wrinkle injections can be injected into areas on the neck and jaw, which relax the muscles, resulting in not only a softened appearance, but it also lifts the face.
- Laser skin tightening techniques use infrared lasers to heat the collagen under the skin, which results in new collagen formation. The increase in collagen will help restore your skin's natural volume and texture.
