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.
