I have neglected my neck and now it’s all crinkly!
Shh! Anti-agers no one but you need know about
QMY NECK and chest are beginning to look crinkly. I’m afraid I have neglected them and I might need some serious help. What treatments do you recommend?
AIT IS so easy to ignore this area until it’s too late as it can be boring to look after. But you can reset the early stages of crepeyness rather well with a skindensifying injectable hydrator such as Profhilo.
It’s a viscous liquid hyaluronic acid (a humectant naturally found in the skin) that spreads under the epidermis, subtly plumping out large areas and restoring their elasticity by attracting moisture and boosting collagen production longterm. ‘It’s good but you will need a bucket of it,’ warns dr Sarah Tonks. ‘I would inject 4ml in the chest and 4ml in the neck over two treatments; it takes ten injections in each area each time.’ dr Tonks
(thelovelyclinic.co.uk) would charge £1,580 but similar packages could start at £1,000 outside London.
Beware: these jabs sting a lot, but it’s all over in a few minutes so just grit your teeth.
A smoother, softer-looking neck and chest should become apparent after four weeks and last up to six months. I know — expensive. But top-ups should become less frequent over time as the results are cumulative.
And do commit to taking your skincare down to your décolletage from now on.
