When it comes to anti-aging creams and procedures, the neck is often overlooked and last to be treated. But neglecting your neck can leave it more susceptible to developing wrinkles and bands over time. As a result of the aging process, many people come to Dr. Thompson seeking the best neck lift treatments to effectively reduce signs of aging and give the neck and face a more youthful appearance. With this in mind, we’ve compiled many ways, from non-invasive to surgical, that you can improve the appearance of your neck.
Exercise is not only great for your health but for your face and neck as well. Increasing blood flow to your head through inverted yoga poses and stretching provides the tissues with nutrients and oxygen. Pilates is also helpful in strengthening the neck. Many pilates exercises are done while laying on your back with your head lifted which strengthens your neck muscles.
This should be obvious by now but sunscreen is a MUST, and not just for your face but your neck as well. Dr. Thompson recommends sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 that includes zinc and titanium oxide. Serums and creams that contain alpha hydroxy acids are helpful to keep skin looking smooth and supple. There are many products that help pigmentation as well, such as SkinMedica’s Lytera or SkinCeuticals Pigment Corrector.
There are many popular options available for the neck area that Dr. Thompson recommends based on a patients individual needs and concerns.
Botox Cosmetic injections work well to minimize banding in the neck that often occurs with aging. The great thing is that is doesn’t actually require a large amount of Botox to treat this area and it’s an effective treatment for neck bands.
Neck Liposuction works great to eliminate the dreaded double-chin. Dr. Thompson performs submental liposuction in the office and in a facility when done in conjunction with facelift surgery.
