How to Tighten Neck Skin Without Surgery

Face it! You’ve probably paid too much attention to the creases and spots quickly manifesting one-by-one on your face but, have generally forgotten to tone and tighten skin on the neck until there obviously was a need to facilitate skin repair and recovery from sagging and wrinkles. However, if you’re still wondering whether or not your neck skin indeed deserves a special brand of care then, that means you’re still not convinced it could give away your age too.

Why Wont A Regular Moisturizer Work On Neck Skin?

Simply taking your facial routine down to your neck skin may be sufficient when you’re in your 20’s or younger. When you’re already faced with natural causes of aging and your matured skin is already working against you, however, you need to give your neck skin something more. Below are the top reasons why your neck skin requires extra special care as you get older:

  1. Your neck skin is constantly exposed to the sun. It is a fact that can incredibly go unnoticed for decades. Just think about it, your neck skin is just as exposed to harmful UVA and UVB, the top causes of skin aging other than old age, and yet you probably haven’t been religiously using protection or, upping your neck skin’s treatment just as you have been consistently caring for your face.
  2. Your neck skin takes more time to recover from damage.In fact, your neck skin heals longer than the skin on your face. This fact makes damage prevention an important strategy when caring for your neck skin.
  3. Your neck skin has a unique orientation.Its vertical arrangement makes it highly vulnerable to signs of aging caused by the Earth’s strong gravitational pull, most notably skin sagging.
  4. Your neck skin is thick. Products that you use to heal, treat and spoil the skin on your face with may not work as effectively to soothe skin on your neck. This fact makes it imperative that you give your neck skin products formulated specially to complement its naturally different structure and texture.

How To Beat Sagging Neck Skin?

For newer and mild or moderate cases of sagging skin, and if you’re still relatively young, there’s generally no need to undergo skin surgery to improve the appearance of loose neck skin. There are several non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures that can help your neck skin finally cope and even get ahead of damage so that healing and recovery can happen faster than degradation. Below are just a handful of the procedures that you may consider to help heal and rejuvenate your aging neck skin:

When combined with completely non-invasive radiofrequency treatments, collagen is significantly improved without unnecessarily doing damage to your skin.
  • Chemical Peels.Yes, these helpful but, sometimes, painful procedures work wonders for your neck skin as well.
