How to Tighten Neck Skin
For so many of us in our youth, we are so focused on our faces that we often neglect the skin just south of our profile. Our necks won’t randomly break out in pimples if we’ve eaten too much chocolate, neither will dark hollow circles surface after night of minimal sleep. It kind of just exists, until one day our necks who have always been trustfully unchanging slowly begins to sag.
Our necks are usually a dead giveaway of our age as it a region of our body that first shows signs of ageing. This is partly our own doing when we neglect this area when applying sunscreen, cleansers and treatments. This then translates to creasing, sunspots, wrinkles and the dreaded loose skin.
Treating Sagging Neck
When it comes to maintaining a youthful neckline, prevention is priority by treating your neck with the same love as we do our faces. However if your neck has already started to show signs of ageing Derma Rolling is the perfect tool for you. So keep scrolling to learn how to tighten the skin under your chin.
What is Derma Rolling?
Derma Rolling or Microneedling, is a collagen induction therapy that promotes skin rejuvenation using micro-needles to create small punctures on the top layer of the skin. This signals the body to create new collagen and elastin resulting in more firm and tighter skin. A 2008 study found that four derma rolling treatments resulted in up to a 400 percent rise in collagen.
Collagen and elastin are two proteins that act as the building blocks for the skin’s overall structure. That said, as we get older, our collagen and elastin production starts to slow down and fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin start to appear. For this reason, Derma Rolling is great to improve the firmness of skin, as well as the texture and overall appearance of large pores.
Furthermore you can also practice this anti-aging technique at home. We recommend using a 0.25mm or 0.5mm derma-roller once per week to see results.
Post Rolling Products
To further enhance the benefits of derma rolling we also recommend applying non active skin care ingredients to your neck after rolling. As derma rolling creates micro-channels in the skin, it enhances the delivery of topical treatments across the skin barrier as it bypasses the stratum corneum and deposits the products directly to the highly vascularised dermis layer.
Amongst our favourite post rolling ingredients is Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which effectively hydrates and plumps the skin from the inside-out whilst continually keeping the skin moisturised throughout the day. Soothing serums such as tea tree extract or products infused with herbal goodness are also great to use after derma rolling to assist in reducing any redness that usually appears from the treatment. Some anti-aging serums also contain peptides which are also a great ingredient to incorporate into your post derma rolling skin care routine.
