Often, of all the anti-age procedures, the neck and decollete area at best gets the remnants of a night cream for the face, or even nothing at all. But if you persistently ignore the needs of the skin of these delicate areas, you can get a strange (and sometimes scary) unnatural effect of a youthful face on a flabby neck.
First of all, the neck and decollete zones are, respectively, the areas from the chin to the collarbones and from the collarbones to the upper border of the mammary glands (the one that remains open after you put on a bra). The skin here is thin and delicate, practically devoid of subcutaneous fat (especially on the chest), as a rule, prone to dryness and flabbiness. Lack of care, lack of hydration, excessive tanning, the habit of sleeping on your side — a number of factors lead to the fact that by the age of 30, the natural “rings of Venus” on the neck can turn into an unaesthetic “corrugation”, and rough vertical wrinkles on the decollete become a continuation of the gentle seductive cleavage on the chest. What should I do to prevent this from happening, and what should I do when trouble is already visible on the horizon? We are working together with Irina Nikolaevna Ivanova, a doctor of the highest category, a cosmetologist-dermatologist of the clinic “Doctor Plastic”.
At the age of 20+
The skin of the neck and decollete requires exactly the same complete care as the skin of the face. If you start taking care of her health and condition in advance, you can avoid big problems in the future. So, one of the main reasons for the appearance of early wrinkles is dehydration of the skin. It is often caused by active exposure to the sun. Remember that ultraviolet rays repeatedly accelerate the aging of the skin and protect it with creams with SPF filters (be sure to do this in spring and summer)! To prevent dehydration at a young age, the plasmolifting procedure is ideal. What is she like? Blood is taken from a vein, placed in a special centrifuge. The resulting plasma is injected into the skin of the face, neck and decollete area. It has been proven that plasmolifting stimulates the production of collagen, and as a result, not only skin hydration occurs, but also its density and elasticity are maintained. And the most important thing is that all this is achieved thanks to the body’s own resources. Plasmolifting is carried out in a course of 4-5 procedures 1-2 times a year, depending on the initial condition of the skin and its needs.
At the age of 35+
By the age of 30, the signs of aging become more noticeable: some flabbiness of the skin appears, physiological folds deepen, “sleep wrinkles” are formed. Dry skin becomes a constant problem, and moisturizers no longer solve it. There is a need for more serious therapy — deep hydration and stimulation of collagen production. For this, the biorevitalization procedure is ideal — injections of hyaluronic acid (one molecule of hyaluronic acid is able to hold from 100 to 800 molecules of water!) often with the addition of certain vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and growth factors. Today, many manufacturers of high-quality injectable drugs produce biorevitalizants (the same hyaluronic acid or cocktails based on it) with a volume of 1.5—3 ml – this amount is enough to “moisturize” not only the face, but also the neck and decollete areas. Of course, the long-term optimal effect is achieved through a course of procedures. For example, for biorevitalization it is 3-5 procedures 1-2 times a year. Bio—reinforcement – injections of fillers based on hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite will help to reduce the depth of wrinkles and “compact” the skin. Working in deep layers, they fill wrinkles from the inside, recreating the natural skin framework, and stimulate collagenogenesis, which gives a long-term and beautiful aesthetic result.
At the age of 45+
The main problems of the skin after forty are deep pronounced wrinkles and loss of elasticity. At this age, biorevitalization alone will not be enough to maintain the youth and beauty of the skin of the neck and decollete area. Laser fractional grinding will help. The method is traumatic and requires rehabilitation for about 6-7 days, but today it is one of the best in the fight against skin aging. In fact, the procedure consists of a lot of controlled laser burns, followed by active recovery. As a result, flabbiness and sagging of the skin gradually disappears on the neck, and the depth of physiological folds and “sleep wrinkles” decreases in the decollete area. Depending on the condition of the skin, the procedure can be carried out once or in a course, but only in the autumn-winter period. If you combine it with moisturizing procedures and jewelry complement injections of fillers, you can get almost perfect — velvety, taut and elastic — skin. In addition, to tighten the neck skin, you can use mesoniti — absorbable threads that are injected subcutaneously and allow you to create a “frame” and improve the oval of the face.
