WHAT IS IT? WHAT ARE CAUSES/ SYMPTOMS AND/OR SIGNS?
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:
- Sun damage
- Application of perfume (which can create skin hyperpigmentation)
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:
- Pigmentation and Sun Damage: Age spots, freckles and discolouration from the sun
- Neck Fat and Sagging Skin: This leads to the dreaded double chin
- Lines and Wrinkles
- Neck Bands: When the muscles in the middle of your neck start to sag and distort the neck shape.
The skin booster range of dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that can create a smoother neck and increase skin hydration and to re-densify gaunt or veiny skin.
PROFHILO BIO REMODELING AGENT
Profhilo® is a skin remodeling agent. Once injected it spreads evenly across your skin like honey. It stimulates collagen and elastin and attracts water into the deeper layers of your skin. Hydrating the skin and regenerating your very own collagen and elastin.
Sculptra® contains a substance called PLLA (poly-L-latic-acid). It is injected deep under the skin, where the PLLA works with facial tissues to stimulate and revitalise natural collagen production. The treatment typically involves a series of injections, and the results can last for up to two years.
Skin Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a special regenerating treatment that safely penetrates deep into the underlying layers of skin, aiding the repair and rejuvenation of troubled areas. Based on acupuncture, and using multiple needles that differ in size, Skin Needling kick starts the body’s natural wound healing response underneath the skin. Skin Needling promotes the renewal of fresh collagen and elastin which provides skin hydration and can effectively smooth, plump up, and even skin surface. Increasing treatments can provide long-lasting plumpness and fullness to reduce the appearance of gaunt, hollow or aging contours.
