Neck and Chest Wrinkles and More | Nicole Contos Insider Tips
You may be surprised to learn that the area of skin that’s revealing your age isn’t on your face. The fact is that the neck and chest often show visible signs of aging first. Learn what causes neck and chest wrinkles, discoloration and sagging skin, as well as the best nonsurgical treatments to restore a look of youth to your skin (psst! The image above is an RF Microneedling Before and After. Pretty amazing, right?) Here’s more on the decollete and its treatment:
Do I Have Tech Neck?
If you’re noticing lines on your neck or chest, it’s likely exacerbated by looking down at the screen for extended periods of time (as if the natural course of aging weren’t enough!)
Why is My Neck and Chest Always So Red and Spotted?
In a word: photoaging — a fancy way of saying “sun damage”. It’s worse on the neck and chest for two reasons. First, the skin is thinner in this area, making it more susceptible to UV damage and environmental stress. Second, it’s easy to forget SPF protection here.
What’s Making My Neck and Chest Skin Sag?
With fewer reparative oil glands and less elastin, the skin in this area is both sensitive and delicate. Add to that the fact that our bodies produce less collagen as we age, and you have a recipe for loose, sagging and crepey skin.
