As you grow older you’ll likely start to notice your body undergoing certain changes that can come in all shapes and sizes, from the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to the formation of sagging skin around your neck. If you are starting to experience or notice any changes to your body then do not worry – they are likely all part of the natural ageing process, something which will affect us all in different ways and at different times.
Although the ageing process cannot be prevented, it can be slowed down and addressed with the right strategy. For example, if you suffered from sagging skin around your neck, you might opt for Neck Rejuvenation treatment. Today, we are going to discuss why we age, as well as how to help one of the most problematic areas when it comes to ageing – the neck!
Why Does Our Skin Age?
Ageing is something that most of us have been taught to fear or dread from a young age. We are constantly made to believe that our younger years are more valuable than our older ones and that we won’t have our youthful looks and health forever.
However much you may fear growing old, there is no point running from the ageing process as you won’t get far, instead, it is better to learn why we age and approach the problem head-on, taking certain preventative or rejuvenative measures.
At some point in your mid-twenties, your body will stop producing collagen and elastin proteins at the rate it normally would. You won’t know when this change happens and you won’t feel it – all that we can say is that it is inevitable. Once this change has happened, your skin will become less effective at bouncing back to its usual shape and may start to show signs of ageing like those mentioned above.
Ageing is a combination of multiple different factors and the speed at which your skin or appearance ages can be different to that of your actual age. Factors such as your genetics, lifestyle, diet and environment can play a huge role in the health of your skin. For example, those who smoke are likely to find that their appearance ages quicker than those who don’t. If you live in a heavily polluted city, your skin will likely look less healthy than someone who lives in the countryside.
Neck Rejuvenation with Dr Rasha
Neck Rejuvenation is one of our most requested treatments at Dr Rasha Clinic, probably due to the fact that the neck often becomes the first area of your body to display prominent signs of ageing. There are many reasons for this, however, for most people, it is a combination of years of sun exposure and the numerous muscle movements that take place in our neck when we look around and when we look down (you have your phone to thank for that!)
If you are starting to display prominent signs of ageing around your neck, then our Neck Tightening or Mesotherapy treatments could be just what you are looking for.
Neck Tightening Treatment utilises NuEra, an innovative radiofrequency treatment, to provide patients with a lift around their neck. This treatment is non-invasive, requires no downtime and for most patients is completely pain-free. Those who opt for this treatment find that the results are highly effective and provide them with smoother, more radiant and youthful-looking skin.
Neck Mesotherapy is a versatile and highly effective treatment that we would recommend for anyone who is trying to combat facial and neck ageing. Mesotherapy is popular as it can instantly add life to dull, tired-looking skin, as well as help combat the formation of superficial wrinkles. Unlike our Neck Tightening Treatment, this technique relies on injections to rejuvenate the skin.
