Spotlight on: Neck Lines & Wrinkles

One of the most common concerns our clients seek help with here at Fiona Clossick Facial Aesthetics is the wrinkling and lining of the neck. Today we will discuss why the skin on the neck is so vulnerable to damage and what we can do to counter this.

Neglected Necks

We all know the importance of caring for our faces to minimise signs of ageing. Most of us know that cleansing, toning and moisturising daily is designed to counter the harm being done to exposed skin by continual exposure to damaging UV light.

But in that case, why do we so rarely include our necks in our beauty routine? After all, unless you are seriously addicted to turtle-neck sweaters, your neck is being attacked by UV rays just as often as your face is. Factor in the nature of the skin on your neck – thin and lacking fatty tissues – and it is no surprise that it suffers.

Prevention

It is clear that one of the first actions we should take to prevent neck lines and wrinkles is incorporating the neck into our daily beauty regime. Be selective over the products you use, remembering that the skin on your neck is different from that on your face, so what suits one may not suit the other. Take care of your body as a whole too, maintaining a healthy lifestyle including a good diet and appropriate weight to avoid stressing your skin unnecessarily, particularly in fragile areas like your neck.

Repair

What if the damage is already done? Well the good news is that there are a range of cosmetic treatments that can rejuvenate the appearance of your neck, minimising lines and wrinkles. Skin peels are renowned for reducing signs of ageing, and dermal fillers can work wonders on even the deepest of lines.

Every individual case is different, so if you’d like to discuss the best way to improve the appearance of the skin on your neck, or if there’s anything else you ‘d like to look into, we’d be happy to help. Get in touch with our expert team today by calling 07815 904578.
