Over the years, you’ve probably spent a lot of time, money and effort investing in your skincare regime. More recently, you may have begun to invest in cosmetic injectables. But, have you given your neck and décolletage the attention it deserves? Or, are your necklace lines giving your age away?
The skin on your neck is generally drier than that on your face, as it has fewer sebaceous glands. As you reach menopause this skin deteriorates even quicker. It takes on a saggy or crepey appearance that can result in necklace lines, the horizontal rings around your neck.
But, the good news is, we can help!
Necklace lines and how we treat them:
Cosmetic injectables are incredibly effective at treating necklace lines. At enhanceskin, we generally find dermal fillers are better to treat these horizontal lines than cosmetic botulinum. We tend to reserve Botox for vertical lines. Dermal fillers help to replace lost volume, thus lifting the skin and smoothing the necklace lines.
The great thing about dermal fillers is that you always get instant gratification. Your skin will look smoother, tighter and more hydrated straight after treatment.
Dermal Fillers generally last from 6-18 months. Most people benefit from repeat injections before the full effect wears off, with lesser volumes required to maintain the effect.
Another treatment that is effective is Fractora. This procedure uses fractionated energy to rejuvenate and resurface the skin. It also encourages collagen and elastin production for longer-lasting results.
Using skin care products to combat necklace lines:
Depending on your age and the severity of your necklace lines, you may very well get satisfactory results initially from using some of the advanced serums we stock at enhanceskin. If, however, you require a full treatment plan, we will also offer advice on prescribed skincare solutions. The products we recommend will help achieve longer-lasting results from the treatments you’ve invested in.
Remember we offer a FREE initial cosmetic consultation in Nelson or Blenheim. We can even offer a virtual consultation. So if you would like to address your necklace lines, contact us today.
