Many patients who are treated with non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX®, Sculptra and Dermal Fillers eg. Juvederm Ultra often complain that “my neck gives away my age” As with Hand Rejuvenation, the neck is an important part of the body that people often ignore but there are many treatments that are available to rejuvenate the neck area.
Medical Grade Skin Care Range
Medical Grade Skin Care such as Agera Rx Daily Moisturising Protector SPF 25 and Agera Rx Mag C Peptide Serum can help prevent damage to the skin as well as repair and rebuild collagen tissue. Topical Medical Grade Retinoids have been shown to be effective in further collagen production, skin repair and pigment control. The use of a topical retinoid such as Agera Rx Ultimate Retinol Rejuvinator 90 is thoroughly advised as topical retinoids have been proved medically without doubt in improving skin texture, colour and increasing collagen production.
Chemical Skin Peels
Light to medium depth peels can be used to help revitalise the skin of the neck area. Not only do they help improve the texture and thickness of the skin by increasing collagen production and hence improving “crepiness”. Chemical Skin Peels, especially Easy TCA peels can be used to target irregular pigmentation and lines and wrinkles, improving the overall canvas of the skin of the neck. Downtime is minimum, and a course of peels are usually recommended to achieve specific results.
BOTOX® for Treatment of Vertical Neck Bands
BOTOX ® is not just used for upper face treatments. BOTOX® can be used by experienced and skilled practitioners to improve the “Turkey Neck” appearance of the neck area, and in combination with dermal fillers can be used to improve the lines and folds around the mouth region. It is very important to remember that these are advanced techniques and must not be done by inexperienced and novice injectors.
Vertical Neck Bands that develop are down to hyperactivity of the Platysma neck muscle. As we age the muscle loses shape and separates into bands that can be visible at rest.
Tiny doses of BOTOX® are injected along the bands of the Platysma neck muscle, which help relax it reducing this ageing appearance.
A new technique is the use of BOTOX® as Mesotherapy to soften skin. By injecting very superficially into the skin, a technique known as Meso-BOTOX, horizontal necklace lines can be softened and improved also.
Juvederm Hydrate for Deep Hydration of the Neck
Juvéderm® HYDRATE offers deep hydration to give you smoother, firmer skin in areas that are often susceptible to sun damage and the signs of aging— the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. Hydration is fundamental to healthy skin tone and elasticity, and maintaining a natural, healthy glow. Creams can only temporarily moisturize the skin at the surface, but Juvéderm® HYDRATE can provide the deep, lasting hydration that will give you a natural, healthy glow.
