The neck area receives as much environmental exposure and sun damage as the face leading to ageing on the face and back of the hands. Some of the most accelerated signs of ageing on the neck are sagging, wrinkles and pigmentation. Factors that accelerate ageing of the neck area include:
These factors combined with loss of collagen and elastin and accumulation of fat, the neck and the décolletage areas are particularly prone to signs of ageing that can lead to:
Dermal Fillers is an injectable treatment that can help firm and create a smoother neck and assist with fullness and decrease neck skin laxity. Treatment may also be performed to increase skin hydration and to re-densify gaunt or veiny skin.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections assist with firming, lifting and tightening for the neck area and are especially effective on neck bands. The injection is a muscle relaxant which blocks nerve signals and reduces muscular contraction, resulting in the reduced appearance of neck bands and a lifted neck and jawline area.
Thread Lifting is the latest technology (using Silhouette Soft®) to help with facial retightening and collagen regeneration. This treatment helps to create desired facial contour and lift through the action of resorbable sutures (resorbable sutures are safe medical threads commonly used to hold, mould and seal epidermis / dermis skin tissue). The suture (thread) acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft skin tissue. The cones hold the suture (thread) in place. The components of the suture (thread) and cones are totally reabsorbed by the body and in time stimulate the body’s production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume, which diminishes with age. Thread Lift can be used on the neck, jaw line, cheeks, eyebrows and malar area .
Photo Rejuvenation is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment performed to combat uneven skin tone and pigmentation that can occur on the neck. Utilising a specific light designed to target neck pigmentation, the light is transformed into heat energy that can treat the areas of uneven skin tone and pigmentation without harming the skin’s surface.
