Most women pay great attention to their face and have a regular cleansing, toning, and moisturising regime. However, the neck is frequently overlooked when it comes to good skin care and treatment and, unfortunately, women usually only seek help when neck aging is quite advanced.
Types of aging neck conditions:
- Increased laxity (sagging) due to collagen loss, often present as “turkey neck”.
- Platysma bands – vertical “cords” along the neck caused by fibrous changes of the muscle running through the neck area.
- Double chin – caused by excess weight or loss of muscle tone.
- Vertical lines (which appear as dehydrated skin and texture problems) due to elastin loss.
- Age spots, pigmentations, redness and crepey skin – usually as a result of photoaging.
Our Approach to an Aging Neck
8th Sense offers multimodality treatments for an aging neck, which we provide through an integrative medical and holistic approach. We know that, by understanding the aging process and enhancing internal anti-aging together with clinically proven aesthetic procedures, we will be able to address the root problem of neck aging.
A monopolar radiofrequency procedure that targets and enhances collagen production in the neck area and is recommended for sagging skin. It has a high safety profile, is non-invasive, works after a single treatment, and doesn’t result in downtime, which are some of the attributes that make this procedure attractive to modern women and men seeking non-invasive procedures for neck aging.
ClearLift Q Switched Laser
Often described as the “lunch time laser neck lift”, this laser works by treating the epidermis and upper dermis, which keeps the skin intact. It creates tiny ablative zones aimed at stimulating the growth of young, healthy tissue and collagen production. This is a painless procedure without any downtime, and it can be done on any skin type.
This is a light-based solution for sagging skin. After the treatment, there is some immediate collagen protein denaturation that creates an immediate tightening effect.
However, we recommend two to three treatments and waiting for about six months, during which stimulated fibroblast should produce more collagen.
A painless, pampering and utterly pleasant treatment that combines cryotherapy, mesotherapy, and glycolic peel.
We recommend a series of six treatments for aging neck, pigmentations, and texture problems.
Biodegradable synthetic polymers are inserted under the skin to enhance tissue response by regenerating collagen.
It is a non- downtime, lunch time procedure that can be done on any skin type, without much discomfort.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light)
IPL or Intense Pulse Light is used for pigmentations, age spots, “perfume spots”, redness and mixed photoaging texture problems of the neck. This treatment can be done for specific skin types, such as Fitzpatrick I-IV. However, 8th SENSE caters for all skin types, and offers a variety of treatments for the above problems.
