Neck wrinkles happen as we age due to the loss of skin strength and elasticity. The neck skin is not attached to any bones, and therefore will be one of the first areas to display the natural progressive pull of gravity. There are two types of neck wrinkles: horizontal and vertical wrinkles.
Vertical wrinkles occur as a result of reduced collagen production in the skin due to natural ageing process combined with less estrogen produced in women, long-term exposure to the sun and aggravated by smoking and poor hydration.
The second type is the Horizontal wrinkles caused by keeping the head in the same position over long periods of time, which usually occurs when working with a computer, or when you sleep. We often call these necklace lines.
Strong platysmal bands as seen below can also be an issue for some people. When the platysmal muscle contracts—like when you grimace or make certain facial expressions—it can cause vertical bands to form.
One thing that will help immensely is a neck-specific cream or serum. Many people swear by simply taking the product that you’re using on your face onto your neck too, but that could be doing more harm than good. The skin on the neck and décolletage is so thin, fragile and delicate, that using ordinary creams and lotions will only pull and drag the skin and create even more creasing and sagging. That is why we started to carry the NEW Neck and Decollete Micro Firm from Neocutis.
l. Cosmetic Injections for necklace lines
Using a combination of Filler and neuromodulators like Botox, Dr. Copeland is able to soften neck lines that often come with age.
2. Ultherapy for vertical lines and loss of collagen
Using Ultrasound technology, we are able to tighten your connective tissue to improve fine lines and texture.
3. Plastysmal Bands
Injecting neuromodulators like Botox into the vertical neck bands can cause the bands to smooth, and you will usually see the results in about a week. Neuromodulators can prevent the platysma from contracting, thereby smoothing the bands and the neck.
