Skin Concerns

Neck Lines

Neck lines are the wrinkles and sagging skin due to a loss of elasticity. As you age, your natural skin cell turnover decreases and the collagen that you naturally produce depletes.

Neck lines can appear commonly as part of the natural ageing process and are usually defined by wrinkles and sagging skin due to a loss of elasticity. 

The neck is often one of the most exposed areas of the body and therefore it is important to protect it against damage. There are some steps you can take to reduce your chances of developing neck lines. These can also help you ease your discomfort from the ones you already have:

  • Wear SPF (Sun Protection Factor) sunscreen. Use an SPF of 30 or higher when you are outdoors, whether in the sun or not, as UVA light levels can cause damage throughout the year. Reapply every two hours if you’re swimming or perspiring.
  • Exercise your neck daily. This will tighten your neck’s muscles and pull in sagging skin a bit.
  • Use moisturisers products with built-in SPF. Though moisturisers can’t prevent wrinkles, they may temporarily mask tiny lines and creases. SPF will block both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Eat a low-salt diet rich in high-fibre foods.
  • Avoid smoking.

As you age, your natural skin cell turnover decreases and the collagen that you naturally produce depletes. These ageing wrinkles usually appear horizontally to your neck. However, you may also find another type of wrinkles, vertical neck lines. These are caused by keeping your head in the same position over long periods of time for example when working with a computer, or when you sleep.

Royal Mayfair Medical Facial 

There are a number of skin peels at London Skin, designed to brighten and refresh the skin. The treatment involves applying a non-toxic chemical to the surface of the skin to encourage cell turnover and exfoliation. As dead skin cells are removed, skin appears clearer and more radiant and wrinkles are softened around the neck. 

Manor Park Skin Needling
Dermal needling uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound-healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Skin Tightening
HIFU uses concentrated ultrasound energy to the face, neck and body by a handheld device.  It is a non-invasive treatment that helps stimulates the cells, resulting in tissue rejuvenation and collagen production. The overall effect of the treatment is to promote tightening and lifting of the skin in these areas.

A HIFU treatment can help stimulate tissue rejuvenation and collagen production – resulting in the tightening and lifting of saggy skin. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, this can produce results akin to facial sculpting (but without the need for surgery).

Plasma Pen 

Plasma Pen is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can enhance the appearance of your skin.

The plasma gas produced by the pen encourages the production of new cells and collagen to create rejuvenation, plump skin. Superficial wounds will be apparent on the skin, but will flake off in the days following the treatment to reveal gorgeous results.
