Never Neglect Your Neck!

Does your skin care routine stop at your chin?  Do you worry about having a sagging, aged neck as you get older?  One of the most common concerns I hear in my office is clients wondering what they can do to improve their neck.  Your neck benefits from a good skin care routine, just like your face.  

Your neck skin is more sensitive than facial skin, so it does require some extra care.  You can do some gentle exfoliation on the neck but don’t be overly aggressive. SkinCeuticals Micro-exfoliating scrub is an excellent option to provide gentle exfoliation.  

As you apply the scrub to the neck, look up to stretch the skin on the neck out, making it easier to apply.   Afterward, apply the same moisturizer you use on your face to the neck and decolletage.  

For an added boost, Jan Marini Juveneck is my favorite product made specifically for the neck and can help to reverse some of the signs of an aged neck.  Jan Marini Juveneck boosts the hydration of the delicate neck skin, improving the texture of the skin and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and discoloration.   

Our office carries a full skin care line of products that we have carefully hand picked so that we can recommend the best products for each individual.

Our Physician Assistants, Michele Gittings or Sherri Anderson, Aesthetician and Product Specialist ,are very knowledgeable about skin care and can help find the right products for your individual needs.  

At NOVA Plastic Surgery we also offer several procedures to restore a more youthful neck.  Our Ultimate HydraFacial includes the neck and decolletage and provides exfoliation and hydration to boost delicate neck skin.  

We also have 2 laser treatments that are perfect treatments for the neck – BBL and Profractional laser.  Our BBL treatment is not only the best treatment for sun spots, redness and anti-aging for the face, it is also an excellent treatment to extend to the neck and chest and can deliver excellent results with no down time.  

Profractional laser treatments produce micro-channels in the skin that stimulate the production of new collagen, leading to smoother skin with more elasticity and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.  Doing a series of Profractional treatments can yield stunning results with less down time than other fully ablative treatments.  

Speaking of the neck, fat under the chin is one of the most common frustrations I hear.  Often times the dreaded “double chin” is frustratingly stubborn and refuses to improve even with weight loss.

Whether you have always had this extra fullness under the chin, or if it came after pregnancy, weight gain or just over time, Kybella is a first-of-its-kind injectable that can be used to decrease the fullness under the chin.  

If you have always wanted a non-surgical way to improve your double chin, make an appointment for your complimentary consultation with one of our highly experienced Physician Assistants today and we can assess whether Kybella may be your answer!
