What is non-surgical neck rejuvenation?

The neck is an aesthetically important area and can prove as telling as the backs of hands in revealing one’s age. The neck is subject to many degenerative changes such as loss of collagen and elastin, accumulation of fat, and exposure and chemicals, such a perfume and some cleaning solutions. The neck and the décolletage area are particularly prone to premature ageing because these are areas of increased sun exposure.

Traditionally, neck rejuvenation has been performed surgically to help to reposition lax skin, reduce wrinkles and fatty tissues. Non-surgical neck rejuvenation has now advanced and can address the skin laxity, tone and texture and banish those ropey strands that can often be seen in thinner people.

With an increasing need for minimally invasive procedures with little or no downtime, there has been a trend towards non-surgical neck rejuvenation.

What methods can be used to rejuvenate the neck?

The first step is to prevent further damage by daily use of sunscreen on the neck, décolletage, and hands, not just the face!
Skin texture can then be addressed. The neck and décolletage are constantly exposed to UV radiation, and this causes progressive degenerative changes in the skin. These include;

Pigmentation, or brown patches, can appear as a result of sun exposure. Solar or actinic keratosis, red and scaly patches on the skin, can also appear. The treatment of solar keratosis is not only cosmetic, but also preventative as these are pre-malignant lesions.

The tissues of the neck are usually thinner and more sensitive than that of the face, and need to be treated more cautiously. Solari Skin rejuvenation is a powerful means of helping to reduce and break down brown pigmentation on the neck.

Skin laxity of the neck is best treated with elos Skin tightening. This method uses radiofrequency to help heat the skin and stimulate collagen. The effects are seen after a course of treatments as collagen takes approximately 90 days to remodel.

Poikiloderma of Civatte is a condition that causes a red-brown discolouration on the neck. The redness represents superficial capillaries and the brown discolouration is overlying pigmentation. The area that is shaded by the chin is usually spared. Poikiloderma is exacerbated by UV exposure, but the underlying cause is not known. Perfumes and various cosmetics have been implicated, as well as hormonal causes like low oestrogen levels. People with a family history of poikiloderma as well as fair-skinned individuals are more likely to develop this condition.

Avoidance of potential causes of poikiloderma such as perfumes, UV radiation, and various cosmetics is the first step in treating poikiloderma.
