The neck is an area that, similar to the hands, is known for being a ‘giveaway’ for someone’s age. Unless you are going to wear a scarf for the rest of your life (which might get a bit hot in summer!), it’s a difficult area to conceal.
So rather than trying to conceal sagging, lines, wrinkles, sun damage or poor skin quality on the neck, why not effectively treat it instead?
Aesthetic treatments should be about treating all aspects of ageing, not just one single area. It’s a similar concept to a makeup artist… Imagine if she applied flawless foundation to your face but left an obvious line around your jawline and didn’t blend it in. It’s the same with aesthetics – it’s important to take a holistic approach and treat the face and the neck.
✔ The dreaded ‘turkey neck’ has less fatty tissue than other areas so the skin itself can easily become drier, more delicate and lose elasticity
✔ There are fewer melanocytes in the neck (the cells that are responsible for producing pigment/giving us a tan) which means that it can be more susceptible to sun damage and an uneven, mottled appearance
✔ Many of us forget to cleanse and use our facial skincare products on our neck, but we shouldn’t! Using medical-grade skin care products will only help treat the signs of ageing
Investing in treatments and procedures for your face is often prioritised by patients. At Anna Medical Aesthetics, I look at your face holistically and factor all potential treatments and areas into your treatment plan.
What Causes The Neck To Age?
The neck is another area (like the hands) that is constantly exposed. We know that exposure to UV can have detrimental effects on the skin and can significantly accelerate the signs of ageing.
Even though we might invest time, money and commitment into our daily skincare regime, it’s easy to neglect the neck and not apply these products to our neck too.
Genetics can also play a big part in both how the neck ages as well as when this ageing process might begin.

Treatment For An Ageing Neck:
By injecting small amounts of anti-wrinkle (Botox) product into the depressors of the lower face, the downward pull of these muscles can be reduced by relaxing them and therefore create a subtle lifting effect.
Mesotherapy can improve the appearance of the skin, leaving a radiant glow. These superfine injections of beneficial ingredients can offer both rejuvenating and tightening benefits. Generally, a course of 4 – 6 treatments is required for best results.
