Horizontal neck lines treatment

Horizontal neck lines are the wrinkles on your neck that run parallel to the chin. They make a person look older and you must look for horizontal neck likes treatment if you want to look younger. There are several treatment options available. Before looking at treatment options it is good to look at the reasons why they are formed.

How are they formed?

The most important cause of horizontal neck lines is age. As we age our body produces lesser amounts of collagen and elastin. These two are needed to keep the skin firm and free from wrinkles.

When we apply sunscreen we tend to forget about the neck and hands. This leaves our neck exposed to the suns UV rays. As a result free radicals our created in the skin of the neck. These free radicals damage the collagen and elastin, which results in horizontal neck lines.

If you have dry skin type and fair skin tone then you are more susceptible to formation of any type of wrinkles which includes horizontal neck lines. So genetics does play its role.

Repetitive motions can cause horizontal neck lines. This happens when you use your phone or other IT devices like laptops. This is the reason why many people have started to get horizontal neck lines in their 20’s.

So now since we know the reasons, it is time to start looking for horizontal neck lines treatment.

Treatment for horizontal neck lines

Fillers are the best treatment option to get rid of horizontal neck lines. Fillers mostly consist of hyaluronic acid. This acid helps to maintain the moisture levels in the skin. This results in skin looking voluptuous. As a result the appearance of horizontal neck lines become less visible.

During the treatment the health care provider will first clean your neck and then apply a topical numbing agent. Then she will inject tiny amounts of filler in your neck skin. There will be mild pain. You don’t need anyone to accompany you, also you can go home once the treatment is over.

There will be pain once the effect of the numbing agent subsides. There will be some redness and swelling. These symptoms will go after a few days. Some people will start to see a change in their appearance immediately and some in a few days’ time.

Fillers are better than botox as they last longer. At the very minimum they can last for more than six months. Mentioned below are some ways by which you can make the filler last for years.

How to make the treatment last longer?

The first way by which you can make your filler last longer is by using a sunscreen. This is an important step as exposure to the suns UV rays is the prime reason for horizontal neck lines. It becomes even more important as we don’t apply sunscreen on our necks. Re apply the sunscreen after every two hours of staying out in the sun. Also if possible cover your neck when you move out in the afternoons as the suns UV rays are very intense during this time of the day.

We have used fillers with hyaluronic acid to treat horizontal neck lines. This is done to preserve moisture in the skin. So if we use a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid then we can make the treatment last longer.

But before moisturizing wash your neck with a facial cleanser. This will clean all the dirt, makeup and pollution on your neck. It will also open up the pores of the skin on your neck. As a result all the nutrients from the moisturizer will seep deeper in your skin.

Another step to take is to eat foods that are rich in collagen. You must eat egg white, chicken and bone broth. These three are rich in collagen. Also foods rich in anti-oxidants are known to promote the production of collagen. So eat lots of fruits and vegetables.
