The wrinkles you see on your neck are a result of the skin sagging – which happens as we age and the skin loses elasticity – rather than muscle activity in the area.
It’s also an area of the body that’s exposed to sunlight and ultraviolet (UV) radiation regularly but is often forgotten when we’re applying sunscreen and moisturisers. The area of the neck below the chin also stores fat; gaining and losing weight can loosen neck skin, causing the skin to prematurely wrinkle and sag.
Wrinkled necks have to be treated much more delicately when tightening the skin. There’s a greater risk of problems because the skin on the neck is thinner, and doesn’t heal or regenerate as well as other parts of the body.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections has become a popular treatment to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles since it was first introduced over ten years ago now. It involves injecting minute doses of the toxin Botulinum Type A into facial muscles to relax them, and prevent them forming thin lines and wrinkles caused by the muscle’s contraction, to give a fresh and youthful appearance. Anti-Wrinkle Injections can also be used for other conditions, including excessive sweating and migraines, as it reduces the function of the sweat glands for up to eight months.
You’ll see the optimum impact of facial Anti-Wrinkle Injections after ten to 14 days, and the effects can last for up to six months. The Skin + Hair Clinic offers a painless, effective and safe procedure, carried out by an experienced dermatologist.
