What is it and what is the cause?
The neck has thinner skin than other areas of the body and also exposed more and so is susceptible to sun damage. This breaks down the collagen and elastin in the skin, which causes loose, saggy skin on the neck. If the damage is too advanced then sometimes surgery is the only solution.
A treatment which restores collagen, thickens the skin and improves skin quality is what is required here. HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) heats the skin at its very deepest layers resulting in the skin “repairing” itself to give lift and tightening of the skin. A single treatment is required and there is no down time unlike surgery.
Radio frequency works in a very similar way but more superficially in the skin to help thicken and tighten the skin. A course of 8 weekly treatments are recommended and this treatment works well in combination with HIFU. A good quality neck cream works on improving skin quality and feeding the skin to help encourage the collagen growth brought on by HIFU or RF and help uneven skin tone. We recommend Neostrata’s award winning Triple Neck Firming Cream available from us.
