Neck Bands

Understanding and Treating Neck Wrinkles in Yorkshire

At Elevate Medical Aesthetics in Yorkshire, England, we’re committed to offering advanced solutions for various cosmetic concerns. One common issue many seek to address is neck bands, also known as neck wrinkles or platysmal bands. These lines and creases on the neck can contribute to an aged or tired appearance. But what causes these visible signs of ageing, and more importantly, how can we effectively treat them?

What Causes Neck Bands?

Neck bands are primarily the result of ageing and the natural process of wear and tear. Over time, the skin loses its elasticity and collagen production decreases, leading to a loss of firmness and tone. Simultaneously, the platysma muscle stretches over the front of the neck and can start to separate and protrude, especially when the neck moves. Neck bands are becoming increasingly common as our digital world can accelerate their appearance. Looking down at phones or laptops or holding our necks in one position for too long strains the neck muscles and can lead to the development of wrinkles over time. Other contributors include:

  • Ageing – The skin loses its elasticity as people age due to reduced collagen and elastin production. The neck muscles (platysma) also tend to weaken over time. The combination of weakened support and less elastic skin allows for the more prominent appearance of neck bands.
  • Repeated Muscle Movement – Repeated and frequent movement of the platysma muscle can lead to more prominent neck bands over time. This is somewhat analogous to how repeated facial expressions can lead to wrinkles and lines on the face.
  • Genetics – Genetic predisposition can play a role in developing neck bands. Some people may naturally have a more prominent platysma muscle or skin that shows signs of ageing sooner.
  • Sun Exposure – Long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can accelerate skin ageing, contributing to the earlier or more pronounced appearance of neck bands. UV exposure can rapidly break down collagen and elastin fibres in the skin.
  • Lifestyle Factors – Smoking and poor nutrition can also accelerate skin ageing, potentially making neck bands more visible at an earlier age. Smoking in particular is known to accelerate the breakdown of collagen, contributing to premature skin ageing.
  • Weight Loss – Significant weight loss can reduce fat deposits in the neck area, which might make the platysma muscle and neck bands more visible due to the reduced volume and skin laxity.

Neck Wrinkle Treatments at Elevate Medical Aesthetics

The neck is a crucial area that often reveals the early signs of ageing. As such, we have meticulously developed a range of innovative treatments specifically designed to target and reduce the appearance of neck bands and wrinkles. Many of our clients wish to diminish the appearance of neck wrinkles for a smoother, more rejuvenated neckline but also to match their outer appearance with their inner vitality and regain their confidence. With modern cosmetic advancements, there are several non-invasive treatments available that offer effective results, making the prospect of attaining a more youthful look increasingly accessible. Below are some of the advanced treatments available at our clinic:

  • Morpheus8 Our Morpheus8 treatment is particularly effective in remodelling and contouring not just the face but the neck area as well. It penetrates deep into the skin and fat layers, stimulating collagen production and rejuvenating saggy or loose skin. This advanced method provides a non-surgical option to significantly improve the appearance of neck bands by promoting a firmer, lifted skin texture.
  • Radiofrequency (T-Shape) Our T-Shape treatment provides a comprehensive solution for loose skin and stubborn fat around the neck area. Leveraging advanced radiofrequency technology alongside low-level laser therapy and vacuum massage, this non-invasive procedure enhances skin tightening and promotes a firmer, more contoured neckline.
  • Polynucleotides Unlock the regenerative power of polynucleotides with our innovative treatment designed to revitalise and rejuvenate ageing skin. Polynucleotide therapy can significantly improve the appearance of neck bands by stimulating collagen production and enhancing skin elasticity, providing a natural and refreshed look with minimal downtime.
  • Injectables We also offer a range of injectable treatments tailored to relax the muscles and fill in wrinkles or lines. These treatments can be precisely targeted to reduce the appearance of neck bands, offering a minimally invasive option with immediate results.
  • Dermapen As part of our comprehensive approach to neck rejuvenation, we utilise the Dermapen for its micro-needling capabilities. This treatment stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, enhancing collagen production and resulting in smoother, tighter skin that naturally reduces the visibility of neck bands.
