Want to Stay Young? Don’t Forget to Pamper Your Neck
Aging doesn’t just wrinkle the skin on your face and then leave you alone. Your neck becomes impacted by signs of aging as well, but you may not notice the changes until it’s too late. Sun exposure, hormone fluctuations, and reduced production of collagen and elastin in the skin all culminate in wrinkled, sagging neck skin that only a turtleneck sweater can hide.
The good news? A number of nonsurgical, quick fixes are available to give the skin an extra boost that will trigger healing and regeneration from the inside out.
PRP for Neck Rejuvenation
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is an advanced procedure used to increase collagen production and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It’s an incredible treatment because it uses the body’s own blood platelets in concentrated forms to stimulate and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. Since it’s a pure substance with no foreign additives, it is safe for everybody. Only two to three treatments about 12 weeks apart are needed to generate unbelievable results. Wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, and skin laxity can all improve after PRP treatment since the PRP will boost collagen production and provide the skin with the tools it needs to heal.
Botox For Platysmal Bands
Platysmal bands are two strips of muscles that run from the base of the neck up to the left and right sides of the jaw. Aging can cause these muscles to become enlarged and lose elasticity, leading them to become more prominent and visible. Botox is an excellent solution for this problem because it can relax the platysmal band muscles to soften their appearance. While the neck may need more Botox than the face, the results can last longer since the neck muscles aren’t used as frequently as the facial muscles.
You can even take advantage of both of the above neck treatments to ensure your neck doesn’t look older than it should!
