Prevent Signs Of An Aging Neck

If you take great care of the skin on your face, you can delay and prevent many signs of aging, but if you forget to take care of your neck, you could end up looking older than you want to. The following tips can help you keep your neck looking as young as your face.

Moisturize
Many people remember to put moisturizer and retinol cream on their face while forgetting about their necks. In most cases, if something is part of your facial skin care routine, you should give your neck the same treatment. Use a daily moisturizer each morning on your face and neck to keep your skin smooth and healthy. It may also be wise to use a nightly retinol cream to prevent aging and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Prevent Sun Damage
Sun damage is one of the fastest ways to get older looking skin. Remember to apply sunblock to your neck when you’re going outside and consider wearing a wide brimmed hat to shade your neck from the sun.

Maintain A Healthy Weight
Extra weight and extra tissue can leave your neck looking heavier and result in sagging skin, which makes you look older. Maintaining a healthy weight through exercise and a balanced diet will come with many benefits and it may help you look younger for longer.

If your neck is already leaving you looking older than you feel, don’t worry—you have options. One common option is a neck lift. A neck lift tightens the skin and underlying tissues in the neck to give it a younger, smoother, natural looking appearance. A neck lift can restore balance to your appearance and help you reclaim your youth.

A neck lift can be done alone when appropriate, but it is also often combined with a facelift to give patients a cohesive, younger looking appearance. Your doctor can help you decide whether you should undergo one procedure or both procedures together.

If you’re considering a neck lift, schedule a consultation with Dr. Shridharani to learn more about your treatment options.
