Dealing With Neck Wrinkles: How To Avoid, Causes, Treatment

So there you are, putting your hair up either to get comfortable or to match your hair with your outfit.

But just before you leave the mirror,  you notice something unexpected: your neck seems to be showing a bit more wrinkles than you remember. It’s kind of affecting your entire vibe and you start to feel more self-conscious about your neck.  

But don’t worry – it’s actually quite common for the neck to show signs of ageing faster than the face (more on that later on). There’s a reason why celebrities like Kim Kardashian use the power of laser treatments to slow down the neck’s ageing process. 

Despite that, many still overlook the neck. And we believe it’s time for us to give our necks that extra love they deserve. Because let’s be honest – when your face is glowing and your neck is equally radiant, it gives off that cohesive, overall youthful glow.

What causes neck wrinkles?

First of all, it’s important to note that the neck has thinner skin and less supportive structures (e.g. bones, fat and muscles) compared to the face. It lacks substantial support, which amplifies the noticeable effects of ageing. Once the ageing process has begun, it becomes more difficult to turn things around.

But aside from our natural ageing process, neck wrinkles can become more prominent due to other factors such as extreme weight loss, pregnancy,  excessive sun exposure,  poor posture, and various lifestyle choices.

Most of the time, we really can’t point out the cause. Life just happens, and we might just notice our neck lines becoming more obvious and looser one day, and that’s okay! There are still several things we can do to prevent and treat those neck wrinkles.

Here are 5 incredibly simple ways to prevent and treat neck wrinkles:

Dealing with neck wrinkles is all about having good skincare habits and, when needed, going for professional treatments. Here’s what you can try:

  1. Go the extra mile – drag that skincare down to the neck!

Research shows that people with dry skin are more prone to getting wrinkles and sagging skin. (Wang, 2009)

So just as your face receives care, your neck deserves attention, too. Don’t forget to add that extra squeeze to your sunscreen, creams and serums! This extra effort can go a long way in nourishing and protecting your neck’s skin from harmful free radicals that contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin.

  1. Lasers? Give ‘em a whirl, they’re the next big thing.

As they say, prevention is better than cure. To effectively slow down the formation of neck wrinkles, it’s essential to get to the root cause (collagen and elastin loss) as early as possible. 

Laser treatments like the Fotona 5D Laser Treatment can help prevent neck wrinkles by helping your skin produce more collagen and elastin. 

Specifically, the Fotona 5D has a powerhouse laser technology designed to help with various skin problems, both on the surface level and deeper down the skin.

  1. Be mindful of your posture

Keeping your posture in check helps prevent excessive creasing of the skin on the neck. When you often hunch or slouch, your neck skin folds and wrinkles start to form over time. 

Start by holding your phone in such a way that you don’t put too much stress on your neck. Practicing proper sleeping positions could help a lot as well.

  1. Give those cigarettes a boot!

Or if you can, gradually break the habit. Studies show that the more cigarettes you smoke in your lifetime, the more likely you are to have worse wrinkles (Goodman, 2019).

  1. Embrace the zen.

It might not feel like it, but stress can also aggravate the ageing process. When you’re really stressed, your body makes more cortisol (that’s the “stress” hormone), and this can make your skin’s protective barrier weaker (Chen, 2014) leading to more prominent lines and wrinkles, especially on the neck.
