When it comes to skincare or anti-aging, the neck (along with the upper chest) is often overlooked or neglected. This is despite the fact that it is among the first areas to show signs of aging. The skin on the neck is delicate and less durable than the skin on your face, making it more prone to sagging, creases, and wrinkles. Say No to Neck Neglect Aesthetic Treatments for Your Neck

Why is your neck aging faster?

Apart from having thinner and more fragile skin, the neck area also:

  • Has less collagen (the protein that gives the skin structure, support, and strength) than your face
  • Produces less natural oil and moisture that protects it from premature thinning
  • Has fewer melanocytes or the cells that produce melanin, which is the skin’s first line of defense against the sun
  • Is constantly exposed to the sun and other harsh elements
  • Is prone to “tech neck” or the pain and wrinkles on the neck and chest (due to slouching and flexing your neck forwards when using your phone and other electronic devices)

Lift and tighten your neck

If you notice signs of aging on your face, Cutis Medical Laser Clinics has non-surgical treatments that can address or improve your aging concerns. 

Microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) 

MFU-V is a US FDA-cleared procedure for naturally lifting and tightening the skin on the face, neck, brow, and under the chin. It uses time-tested microfocused ultrasound energy, which penetrates the skin’s deeper layers and triggers the production of new collagen. The result is a visible yet gentle lift over time. MFU-V can:

  • Improve general skin laxity
  • Lift and tighten the jawline
  • Improve fine lines and wrinkles on the décolletage
  • Tighten loose skin without downtime

Laser skin rejuvenation 

This non-invasive laser treatment uses an FDA-cleared device that can improve a range of skin concerns. The micro-pulses of laser energy gently heat the upper dermis to stimulate collagen growth, as well as generate extra heat in dilated capillaries to improve skin redness.

Laser skin rejuvenation can restore the health, clarity, and youthfulness of the skin on your face, neck, upper chest, shoulder, and hands. You can turn to it to:

  • Reverse sun damage
  • Improve scarring 
  • Reduce the look of lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Improve/treat facial redness and tiny facial veins (telangiectasia)
  • Restore skin and texture 

Botulinum toxin 

Commonly used for smoothing lines on the face, botulinum toxin can also soften wrinkles in the neck and chest area. It can also be used on platysmal bands or the two vertical strips of muscles on the sides of the neck, which are among the first signs of aging in the neck. Platysmal bands also become more visible with sagging neck skin. 

The use of botulinum toxin on platysmal bands can help:

  • Reduce vertical neck bands
  • Prevents the worsening of platysmal bands
  • Smooth the skin on the neck
  • Improve jawline contours
  • Create a more youthful-looking neck

CoolSculpting Elite

A double chin can contribute to the appearance of a turkey neck or the saggy/wrinkled skin on the neck. Excess weight on the chin and neck can also make the neck appear bigger and sometimes older. CoolSculpting Elite can specifically target the double chin for a slimmer or more sculpted chin area.

CoolSculpting Elite is an updated system of the original CoolSculpting. It uses controlled cooling technology that targets and freezes fat cells to the point of natural elimination. It has C-shaped applicators that complement the body’s natural curves and can reduce up to 27% stubborn fat in the treated area.

Made of 100% pure hyaluronic acid, bio-remodelling injectable hydrates the skin and treats aging skin that lacks volume and elasticity. It bio-stimulates collagen and elastin to address laxity and other signs of aging. It can help tackle sagging and wrinkling on the neck, jowls, and upper chest area. 

Bio-remodelling is also referred to as “beneath the skin injectable moisturizer” due to its ability to deeply hydrate and remodel the skin. It stays in the skin for 28 days, slowly and evenly releasing hyaluronic acid to stimulate essential skin proteins. It can give the skin a lasting dewy and radiant complexion

Give your neck and chest some TLC

Your neck and décolletage need special attention. Here are a few things that can help you take better care of your neck and chest area:

  • Extend your skincare routine (cleanser, toner, and moisturizer) to your neck and décolletage.
  • Slather on sunscreen. Choose a broad-spectrum formula with SPF 30 or higher.
  • Consider using a neck serum like Dr. Sylvia’s 24k Gold Neck Protect, which is formulated to reduce visible signs of aging on the neck and protect the skin from environmental aggressors.
  • Exfoliate the area at least once a week. Use a gentle exfoliator; avoid harsh scrubs or those with abrasives.
  • Use upward strokes when applying products. 
  • Raise your screen or monitor to avoid flexing your neck down or forward.

Don’t neglect your neck. Take better care of the area with the right products and consider the treatments mentioned. Contact Cutis Medical Laser Clinics in Singapore today and schedule a consultation with our aesthetic doctor to find out more about these procedures.
