This is a question for my mom, who is starting to feel weird about her neck wrinkles. I will say that she looks absolutely fine in my eyes, but she doesn't agree with me (and is in her sixties). My mom would never consider a neck lift and just wants the best she can get with creams and minor cosmetic treatments she could get at a spa.
Do you have any recommendations for her? If you found a product or non surgical treatment that really helped with your neck wrinkles, please share it here and I will forward it to her.
Your mother is quite right to look into this; it is quite amazing how most people instinctively put all sorts of products on their face and even their hands, but totally forget about their neck! Given that the neck is one of those places that seems to "attract" wrinkles like crazy, more people should be using specially formulated creams on that area. The same principle extends to the cleavages as well!
Estee Lauder has a firming and sculpting face and neck cream that has an excellent reputation, if your mom is interested in paying a little extra. Similarly priced, Clarins has a cream that is only for the next, called "extra firming" or something like that.
In the more natural range, there's Bare Minerals extra firming neck cream. This is also a lot cheaper. There's one by Perricone MD as well, but that one is as pricey as the two mentioned above.
Anyway, I hope that helps some?
You could try:
- Dermarollers. These are small handheld devices that use tiny needles to tighten the skin. Those who use them sure seem very impressed.
- Light therapy, you can even buy home devices
- Laser therapy at a plastic surgery clinic
- Botox on the neck. Really, it's possible.
- Dermal fillers like Juvederm.
- Platelet rich plasma. I don't know much about this procedure but it uses your own blood to smoothen your skin out
In order to find out what is best for you, you are best off finding a reputable plastic surgery clinic in your area and asking for a consultation. Make sure they are accredited.
I did not know that botox could be applied to the neck area either, but I researched it on the internet after your suggestion and you are right: it really is something that is done. I will discuss this with my mother.
Platelet rich plasma... is that the so-called "vampire facial"?
I took 10 days off work to recover and will take it easy all that time. My husband has also taken a few days off to help look after me right after the operation.
Fingers crossed! I can't wait, but also... whoah! It is a big decision and I am hoping to be able to update you with some very positive news very soon!
Good luck to your mom on getting rid of the wrinkles! :)
