For those of us who are interested in reducing the signs of aging, we have a tendency to focus on the wrinkles and volume loss that occur in the face. This means that the delicate skin on the neck often goes ignored. If you have noticed that your neck is starting to appear crepey or is showing signs of sun damage, then it is time to give your neck some TLC and consider treatments that can help you look younger and feel more confident.
The neck can be an especially challenging area to treat. People tend to underestimate just how sensitive the skin on the neck is to the sun and other factors that reduce skin laxity and cause wrinkles. It is very common for discoloration and horizontal lines to occur across the neck. The delicate skin on the neck is also prone to crepiness, which only adds to an aged appearance.
In fact, the skin on the neck is so delicate that younger people are beginning to notice what has been termed "tech neck." Essentially, signs of aging are occurring earlier as a result of spending so much time looking down at devices. Even the simple act of looking down for prolonged periods of time can cause the neck skin to age prematurely.
Neck Rejuvenation to Improve Neck Lines
While there are many different treatment options available, one we recommend is our Neck Rejuvenation Treatment which combines dermal filler and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Dermal fillers provide a simple way to reduce the appearance of neck lines, while PRP stimulates the skin’s natural rejuvenation process, thus improving skin texture. This treatment will make sure that your body is working for you and not against you.

PRP represents a true advancement in medical technology and is used to treat everyone from professional athletes, to those seeking a more youthful complexion. Most people are aware that blood contains red and white blood cells and platelets. What you may not know is that platelets contain hundreds of proteins that promote growth and healing. These proteins can be used for everything from helping athletes recover faster from injuries to promoting skin healing.
PRP treatment is a popular option because it requires virtually no downtime. While there are some injections involved, surgery is not necessary in order to experience a more youthful look. The procedure begins with having your blood drawn so that the doctor can separate your platelets. Once the platelets are ready, they will be infused into the neck using microneedling.
After the procedure, you may experience some temporary redness, however you will be able to immediately return to your normal activities. As the weeks and months pass, you will notice that the results continue to improve with the formation of new collagen. A yearly maintenance treatment is recommended, although proper skin care and daily used of sun protection will help prolong results.
