Don’t let lines be a pain in the neck! Microneedling, coupled with professional skincare products, is a great way to improve the appearance of fine lines on the neck.
Neck wrinkles and sagging skin are a part of aging. The skin on the neck is pretty thin and is often exposed to the sun. Pair this with gravity, and it can show signs of aging sooner than the rest of the body. Technology plays a part in lines on our neck (ever heard of tech neck?), as does posture in general.
Prevention is often better than a cure, and we advise that a skincare routine isn’t just for the face. Starting at any age, skincare should be applied to the neck and décolleté area. This includes applying sun protection (at least 30 SPF), as sun damage can cause dark spots and hyperpigmentation as well as fine lines. Gravity also plays its part, and the neck shows the effect of this earliest.
The Skin on Your Neck Needs Nourishment Every Day
MDPen ReVita Peptide Moisture Crème is a great way to treat neck lines, either alone or in conjunction with other treatment options such as microneedling. It works to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through hydration, restoration of elasticity, collagen production, and skin smoothing. Here are the active ingredients it contains:
- A Bio-Peptide complex of five different growth factors, amino acids, and vitamins to provide anti-wrinkle and antiaging benefits
- Vitamin C to stimulate collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and reduce skin discoloration
- Passiora Edulis Seed Oil to restructure and remodel the skin
- Hyaluronic Acid for wrinkle reduction, plumping, and hydration
- Squalene to prevent water loss and restore suppleness
Looking after the skin on your face, neck, and chest isn’t just something for older people to think about. It should be incorporated as part of your overall skin routine from the beginning.
How can microneedling improve the appearance of fine lines on the neck?
For those who already have fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging in the neck area, microneedling can be an excellent treatment option. It can also help to deal with other signs of aging in these areas, like hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling has a range of benefits for skin on the neck that experiences wrinkles, discoloration, or sagging, including:
- Stimulates collagen and elastin production
- Tightens the appearance of the skin
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and sagging skin
- Improves skin texture
- Deals with uneven texture and can help reduce dark spots
The treatment is minimally invasive, is considered low risk, and there’s little-to-no downtime needed. Even better, improvements to the skin are visible in a relatively short amount of time. Following the correct aftercare regimen at home can help to optimize treatment results, too, so it’s important to use products that are designed to help skin recover and thrive every day after treatment.
Sometimes, hyaluronic acid fillers are used to deal with fine lines and wrinkles on the neck. These plump up the fine lines and wrinkles, but they don’t improve overall skin texture overall in the same way that microneedling does. Botox can also be used for “neck banding” (lines that run horizontally across the neck), but this may not always be the most appropriate treatment. Laser is another option, but this can be a problem for some skin tones or skin that’s prone to acne.
Overall, targeted microneedling is one of the most effective, least invasive, and lowest-risk treatment options available for fine lines and wrinkles on the neck.
