Great looking skin is an important aspect in projecting your best appearance. When focusing on improving and maintaining the skin on your face, an area you may often forget about is your neck. Neglecting your neck leaves it more susceptible to developing wrinkles and bands over time. As a result of the aging process, many people seek cosmetic surgery to effectively reduce the signs of aging on their neck and regain a more youthful appearance. With this in mind, here are some ways that you can improve the appearance of your neck:
Not only is yoga beneficial for your overall well-being, but this type of exercise also helps smooth out the neck. Inverted poses such as downward facing dog increase blood flow to the face and neck, providing the tissues with nutrients and oxygen. In addition, some facial yoga poses like baby bird firm the skin on the neck and can be performed while sitting.
Protect and Moisturize
It’s no surprise that wearing sunscreen is one of the most important and effective ways to protect your skin. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 should be worn every day to keep your neck looking youthful. Lotions and revitalization creams that contain alpha hydroxy acids are also effective at keeping the skin smooth and supple.
Being conscientious about protecting your neck can delay the onset of wrinkles and bands, but these signs of aging cannot be prevented forever. Wearing scarves, turtlenecks, and even necklaces can not only conceal the signs of aging on your neck, but also make you look great as well.
The quickest and most effective way achieve a more youthful neck is through cosmetic treatment. At The Diamond Face Institute, Dr. Jason B. Diamond has helped countless numbers of men and women from all over the world restore a youthful appearance to their neck using a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Injectable Fillers
A popular form of treatment in restoring youth to the face, injectables like BOTOX® and injectable fillers can effectively smooth out wrinkles on the face and restore fullness to areas of the neck that have lost volume.
An aging neck typically produces a double-chin. To eliminate this condition, liposuction can be performed that permanently removes excess fat deposits from the neck area.
A neck lift adds a rejuvenating appearance to the neck by removing excess skin and layers of fatty tissue while tightening the remaining skin to provide a more sculpted neck.
