10 Tips to Improve the Neck and Décolleté

10 Tips to Improve the Neck and Décolleté

Let's just say it. Aging isn't for the faint of heart. Therefore, it's important to keep it all in perspective. There will be some things about our appearance that we can improve with some hard work and dedication. There will be some things we can pay a doctor to fix (and then maintain with a consistent skincare routine). There'll be some things we cannot do anything about. I'll never be 5'8" or have the body of a runway model and I'll never be 25 again. 

There are PLENTY of things we can do to improve the neck and décolleté with a little bit of hard work and dedication.

Many forget to include the neck and décolleté when performing the AM and PM routines, so that's the first place to start. Cleanse, use serum(s), moisturize, and use sunscreen on the neck and décolleté EVERY day and night.

Vertical neck lines and neck bands are probably the most common issues with the neck area. They are caused by a number of elements including genetics, sun exposure, or an improper skincare routine over the years.

Full disclosure, some may not be able to fully get rid of all neck bands but there are definitely steps to be taken to improve their appearance and prevent them from getting worse.

  1. Tighten and lift the neck muscles using microcurrent.
  2. Increase blood flow to the area using massage and technology.
  3. Release tech neck using gua sha (Anma) and massage.
  4. Boost the production of collagen with products and devices.
  5. Use retinol-based serums and serums with vitamin C.
  6. Exfoliate the neck regularly.
  7. Apply the extra contents of hydrating masks to this area. 
  8. Botox injections will relax platysma muscles.
  9. Dermal fillers will help with deeper wrinkles.
  10. Get a platysmaplasty in which a surgeon tightens the neck muscles with incisions made underneath the chin and behind the ears.

Repeated movements, like looking down at the phone constantly, will cause the muscles in the neck to tighten up and shorten. This is where facial massage and release work will help. I have recorded videos on my YouTube channel showing how to do this at home. 

The neck and décolleté will require using the same products you're using on your face. This area responds well to ultrasound, LED, and some gentle RF

Put care for the neck and décolleté in your daily and nightly routine and before long you'll see improvements that will compliment your overall appearance.
