Neck lines/wrinkles

Neck is considered as the second face of a woman because it is the region that easily shows signs of aging followed by the face. Believe it or not, a neck wrinkle can make your look age by a decade. Of course, we all know that prevention is better than cure. However, what if neck lines and wrinkles are already shown, what can we do? Here goes some aesthetic treatments that can effectively lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

What is neck wrinkle

Neck wrinkles are the wrinkles shown on the neck, they are caused by the aging of epidermal cells and the loss of connective tissues on the neck.

Neck wrinkles can be congenital or acquired. Congenital neck wrinkles are horizontal lines on the neck and located on the shoulder level. Nearly all of us have the congenital wrinkles when we were born, the condition varies. These wrinkles will also change with time and the daily activities we engage in.

Causes

Some key factors that contribute to the development of acquired neck wrinkles are:

Like the skin around our eyes, the skin on the neck tends to be thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face. It is also more prone to be drier as it has less production of sebum than the face, which will lead to wrinkles formatio.

Some daily activities and postures will accelerate the formation of wrinkles. For example, prolonged use of computers at work, sleeping with a high pillow, and prolonged use of mobile devices with the head bent downward will fold the skin on the neck, stimulate the wrinkles formation, and deepen the existing lines.

No sun protection. UV radiation from the sunlight can cause photoaging to our skin by breaking down collagen fibres at a higher rate than the natural aging process, resulting in formation of neck wrinkles.

After the age of 25, the production of collagen starts to decline. The collagen and elastic fibres on our neck become thinner and looser, which means the skin is less elastic and will eventually cause sagging and wrinkles.

Lack of or improper skincare routine of the neck can cause the delicate skin to form wrinkles.

Symptoms

Neck wrinkles can be divided into two types:

Horizontal neck wrinkles

Vertical dry neck wrinkles

◎The neck wrinkles severity scale:

0: smooth skin

1 – None: No visible wrinkles. Continuous skin lines.

2 – Mild: Shallow visible wrinkles; slight indentation; fine lines on face.

3 – Moderate: Moderately deep wrinkles; clearly visible wrinkles; wrinkles disappear if stretched.

4 – Severe: Deep and furrow wrinkles, well defined edge.

5 – Extreme: Very deep and furrow wrinkles, redundant skin folds.

Affected people

People with congenital neck wrinkles; People who show aging skin and neck wrinkles; People who do not take proper skincare routine on their necks.

Treatment

Smoothing neck wrinkles is more challenging than smoothing wrinkles on the face. Ai Beauty Clinic helps clients to reduce the appearance of neck wrinkles by different approaches including local lifting, stimulation, and filling.

A. Profhilo

What is it?

Profhilo is manufactured by an Italian pharmaceutical manufacturer, IBSA FARMACEUTICI ITALIA, and has been approved by the U.S. FDA. It involves the injection of stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) cooperative complexes made through a patented NAHYCO™ thermal technology process. Profhilo offers the highest concentration ultrapure hyaluronic acid on the market. The hyaluronic acid will be injected into the dermis and diffused across the layer, it integrates with the tissues and restores the level of hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid complex stimulates collagen and elastin regeneration in the dermis and epidermis. Also, the restored level of hyaluronic acid improves skin quality and hydration in dermis and epidermis.

How does it work?

Profhilo is made by thermal cross-linked technology and does not contain the chemical cross-linking ingredient, BDDE, as other products do. Profhilo is a bio-remodelling product for the skin. It does not only soften wrinkles/lines, it is intended for skin remodelling, tightening, and rejuvenating. During the treatment, the Profhilo will be performed specifically by BAP (Bio Aesthetic Points) technique which means there are five injection sites on each side of the face. It ensures the highest diffusion of hyaluronic acid across the skin and the lowest chance of bruising. Profhilo delivers significant improvement on sagging skin and is recommended to perform on the face, neck, and jawline. It stimulates four types of collagen and elastin to improve skin quality, soften lines and wrinkles, and contour the face.

Procedure:

1. Face-to-face consultation: A treatment plan with injection areas and dosage will be customised based on the client’s conditions and desired results.

2. Pre-treatment preparation: Clean and disinfect the injection areas. Confirm the injection solution has not been opened.

C. THERMAGE-Neck

What is THERMAGE:

Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the dermis. The tissue at the localised dermis area will be damaged and hence its self-healing process will be stimulated. The healing process promotes the formation and remodeling of collagens, which will tighten, smoothen and lift the skin, resulting in re-contouring and slowing down the aging process.

How does THERMAGE work:

Thermage is a radiofrequency treatment. The patented applicator will touch your skin and deliver the accurately set radiofrequency to the dermis layer, and heat it up to 65℃~ 75℃. The high temperature will stimulate the self-repair mechanism. A large amount of collagen in the dermis layer will be regenerated, and result in an instant firming effect.

Procedure:

1、Face-to-face consultation: Confirmation of a detailed plan of THERMAGE after fully understanding the client’s conditions and desired results.

2、Pre-treatment preparation: Clean and disinfect the treatment areas. Draw treatment areas on the face. Confirm the package of the new tip of the applicator has not been opened.

3、During treatment:Proceed the treatment based on the assigned treatment areas to remove wrinkles and tighten skin.

4、Post-treatment repair: QDEL Phototherapy mask to nourish and repair the skin.

5、Post-treatment caring.

D. Neck Thread Lift

What is thread lift:

Thread lift is currently the most effective face lifting technique. By embedding threads (that can be absorbed and degraded in the body) to the dermis layer, which lifts the face according to the direction and interval of the threads, it stimulates the skin, and further activates fibroblasts to produce collagen. Thread lift is suitable for people who want to restore skin’s lifting ability, reduce signs of sagging, and stimulate regrowth of collagen.

How does it work:

Thread lift treatment enables embedding threads in the skin to stimulate regeneration of collagen. These new collagen will contract naturally and lift cheek and sagging skin to create a youthful look. Also, embedding threads in a big V shape can lift the drooping skin at the lower part of the face to regain a tightened face. Doctors will customise treatment plans for individuals based on their condition and desired results.

Procedure:

1. Face-to-face consultation: Develop a unique treatment plan based on the client’s condition and desired results.

2. Apply anesthetic: Apply anesthetic externally. Clean and disinfect the areas to be embedded with threads.

3. Pre-treatment: Fully understand the treatment plan. Check the quality and quantity of the threads.

4. During treatment: Proceed with the treatment plan to embed threads.

5. Post-treatment precautions.

Duration: 45-60 mins

F. Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

What is Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling:

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is an innovative technology integrating matrix application, microneedling, and radio frequency technology. During the treatment, a device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the skin. The RF energy is then delivered via the small needles into the dermis to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved skin texture and firmness, as well as skin resurfacing.

How does it work:

A sterile treatment tip with a matrix of non-insulated, 24k gold-plated microneedles is used to mechanically and biologically stimulate the skin’s natural healing process. Also, the thermal stimulation to the dermis from the RF energy further enhances the skin’s self-healing mechanism, the production of new collagen and elastin, and the improvement of skin quality. RF microneedling is an advanced technology of microneedling providing accumulative and ongoing benefits on skin tightening and collagen proliferation. It delivers promising results on improvement of neck wrinkles and loosen skin.

Procedure:

1. VISIA examination: Access skin condition or existing skin problems with assistance of data analysis and picture analysis.

2. Face-to-face consultation: Develop unique treatment plan based on client’s condition and desired results.

3. Apply anesthetic: Apply anesthetic externally. Clean and disinfect the treatment areas.

4. Pre-treatment preparation: Draw markings on the face to define treatment areas. Confirm the package of the new tip of the applicator has not been opened.

5. During the treatment: Perform the treatment as planned, precisely adjust the RF energy output and depth.

6. Post-treatment repair: Medical-grade facial repair mask + QDEL phototherapy mask to nourish and repair the skin.
