Ballerinas keep their neck long and this gives their pose maximum grace. It is no secret that their beauty regimen, apart from moisturizing their faces, include moisturizing their necks and chests as well. For the rest of us, the neck falls into a no-man’s land, neglected in maintenance and beauty. As we age, our skin succumbs also to gravity and the neck sags. Women spend decades looking after their faces, only to be let down by their aging necks. Here’s what you need to do to tuck in the unwanted loose folds.
NON-INVASIVE SKIN TIGHTENING
Yes, not everything needs to be resolved with the scalpel. Non-invasive facelifts are now a (big) thing. Ultherapy is the world’s first FDA-approved non-invasive device to give a facelift effect. Diving 4.5mm beneath the surface of the skin, it stimulates a productive healing response in the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), an organized fibrous collagen-rich layer of tissue, resulting in a skin tightening effect. Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep dermis without damaging the more superficial epidermis, smoothening fine lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX NECK LIFT
The famous neck lift named after a beautiful queen, the Botox Nefertiti Lift places small aliquots of Botox jus beneath the jawline. This technique relaxes the platysma muscle of the neck, allowing the opposing facial elevator muscles to be more active, resulting in a more lifted and contoured jawline. Expect a more defined jawline within 1 to 2 weeks. A Nefertiti lift lasts between 3 to 6 months on average.
YOUTH SAVANT NECK
Apparently, there is a miracle healer jab for deep wrinkles that’s not Botox. This is a DNA boost for deeply etched neck lines, horizontal and vertical. Made from purified salmon DNA, Youth Savant supplies building blocks of DNA to the skin to aid in cellular regeneration.
