The appearance of your neck skin can really betray your age. Most of the time when attending our face skin routine we tend to ignore our neck, but this part of our body is the most common area that is in need of wrinkle treatments.
The skin on your neck is in most of cases much thinner and sensitive/delicate than the skin on your face, (quite similar with the skin of your eyelids) meaning it is predisposed to signs of aging and sun damage. In absence of collagen, the skin is more likely to develop premature wrinkles.
What are the most common causes of wrinkles on the neck?
Aging is a normal part of our lives, neck lines and wrinkles being a thing that comes with it.
Along with aging, the most dangerous factor is being exposed to UV light most of the time and not using sunscreen. Smoking is another cause of premature aging, because tobacco damages collagen causing a lot more wrinkles than a person who does not smoke.
Outside of your control may be factors such as metabolic processes, hormones and needless to say: genes.
Another reason can be the movement of your skin in certain positions, repetitive action such as looking down to your phone too often. These actions can be the foundation of noticeable wrinkles over time.
How can I take care of my neck?
Here are some methods that can help avoid or reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the neck:
Sport: Over the years, studies have shown how much the exercises can improve not only your body appearance but also the skin appearance, by creating new layers of skin.
Foods high in Omega 3 or collagen supplements: Foods high in Omega 3 help your body with producing more collagen. Foods like avocados, cold water fish and seafood, plant oils (canola oil, soybean oil and flax-seed oil), nuts and seeds (chia seeds, walnuts). Collagen supplements can be taken in the form of powder or pills.
Exfoliate and moisturize your skin: exfoliating can increase the radiance and clarity of your skin, can unclog your pores, prevent acnee, boost blood circulation and help the skincare products penetrate deeper.
What non-surgical treatments are helping with neck lines?
One popular treatment choice for neck lines, that produces instant results and last several months to a year is Dermal Fillers. Fillers are used to reduce neck lines, by adding volume. The result will be obvious immediately. A study from 2019 shows the effectiveness of dermal fillers for neck wrinkles.
Ultherapy: one of the most popular procedure it helps with producing new collagen growth, by utilising micro focused ultrasound and generating a thermal effect.
Botox injections: The effect of a botulinum toxin neck lift lasts for several months and is therefore an excellent way to maintain and delay the need for surgery.
