Neck lines can appear as part of the natural ageing process and are usually defined by wrinkles and sagging skin due to a loss of elasticity.
As we age, our natural skin cell turnover decreases and the collagen that we naturally produce depletes. This, as well as, exposure to the sun, and neglect of the neck in our daily routines, can cause neck lines to become more prominent and add age to our overall look.
The neck is often one of the most exposed areas of the body and therefore it is important to protect it against damage. A moisturising cream with SPF 30 should be applied daily to ensure that the neck does not become dehydrated and is protected against harmful UV rays from the sun.
At sk:n, we offer a range of treatments which can combat neck lines, giving your skin a younger and firmer look.
I felt that my neck always gave away my age. I couldn't be more pleased with the results of my peel. It has changed the way I feel about my neck completely.

Treatments for your neck lines
At sk:n we use several techniques to reduce your unwanted neck lines. Upon your consultation your practitioner will advise you of the best option for your individual case.
We offer a number of skin peels that are designed with the neck in mind. The treatment involves applying a non-toxic chemical to the skin to encourage cell turnover and tighten the skin. It also helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and sagging through the production of collagen and elastin.

This exfoliating treatment is ideal for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the neck area. Microdermabrasion removes the upper-most layer of skin to help promote new skin cells and collagen production.
It is performed using a mechanical device which simultaneously buffs away unwanted imperfections using microcrystals and vacuums the top layer of skin, for a healthy looking appearance.

Fraxel uses thousands of microscopic laser columns to penetrate deep down into the skin creating miniscule wounds. The wounds trigger the body’s natural healing response; stimulating the growth of fresh, youthful and healthy skin cells. The result: a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and a plumper, firmer neck.
