While there are many changes that occur in the face as we age, one of the most bothersome to many patients and one of the first areas to show signs of ageing is the changes that occur in the neck.
Even so, women often place such focus on treating the skin on their face that they neglect this prominent region, leading to mismatched skin appearance. Sun damage, together with prolonged perfume, application is the most profound factor in development of ageing of the neck. Signs of an ageing neck are: horizontal wrinkles, actinic bronzing (permanently bronzed skin), reddened skin (poikiloderma), age spots, and the development of vertical neck bands, loose sagging skin, loss of a good sharp neck angle and the development of a double chin or turkey neck . Fine textural lines scattered over the surface are partly due to the loss of collagen's integrity. Finally, there is laxity from the loss of elastic fibers.
In the male, the ageing neck poses some different issues. They often have more skin excess and the facelift incisions that are used in females have to be altered to account for the male beard pattern. In addition, males have a much greater tendency towards some relapse after facelift surgery due to their thicker and heavier skin. Men also have a much greater aversion to major facelift surgery and may opt for non-surgical tightening procedures such as 3D Skin Rejuvenation with Titan®™ and TriPollar™.

Skin Renewal Tip
To improve a red & brown mottled neck which is distressing to most women, a fourth generation IPL or photo rejuvenation treatment called Limelight™ will shrink the tiny red veins causing the diffuse redness and also destroy the melanin which causes the mottled brown appearance. A series of 3 to 4 treatments is indicated for best results.
