Your face isn’t the only area that can show signs of aging. The skin on your neck is exposed to the same youth-stealing stressors — and it’s much thinner. Over time, you may find yourself dealing with issues such as neck lines, brown spots, chest wrinkles, and sagging.
Fortunately, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Brucato can help you rejuvenate your appearance from the chin down. Below are some great treatments and procedures to try.
Use Sunscreen and Skincare
Applying the right products is an easy way to prevent and reverse visible aging. Look for formulas with Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that stimulates collagen production and fades dark spots.
Or pick up some Retin-A (or retinoic acid), a gold-standard choice for neck firming. Retin-A can improve skin tone and texture while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It’s stronger than retinol and only available by prescription. We offer this product at our practice.
The last item that you should have on hand is a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Apply it daily to protect your skin from sun damage. Excessive sun exposure is a leading cause of visible aging.
Book a Professional Treatment
In-office treatments can complement your at-home skincare routine. We offer several non-surgical services to help with neck aging, including:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Chemical peels
- Laser skin resurfacing
Consider Neck Lift Surgery
Non-invasive treatments can go a long way to improve wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines on your neck. However, loose or sagging skin is another story. Often, the best way to treat this concern is with surgery.
Dr. Brucato performs front neck lifts and traditional neck lifts. A front neck lift is ideal if you have a so-called turkey neck but don’t necessarily want to undergo a more invasive procedure. The procedure can dramatically improve the appearance of your neck by making it look younger and slimmer.
