How To Reduce Wrinkles Via The Neck Lift Procedure – Sofwave Treatment

February 3, 2022

As we grow older, our skin begins to lose volume resulting in the appearance of wrinkles. Gravity also has a role to play in the emergence of wrinkles as part of the natural aging process. Nonetheless, this does not undermine the discomfort associated with the folds or ridges that appear on your neck region which may be exposed to the sun.

Indeed, most individuals desire smooth skin owing to its impact on one’s confidence level among other factors. Consequently, this makes the wrinkle reduction process essential in today’s world. The advent of technology supports the anti-aging process through the use of devices that revitalizes the skin.

What are wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a normal part of growing older. The areas of your skin more exposed to the sun are susceptible to getting wrinkled over time. In most cases, these areas include your face, neck, forearms, and hands. The effect of wrinkles on each individual differs depending on their skin tones and sometimes, lifestyle and genetics can also influence your vulnerability to developing wrinkles.

Causes of Wrinkles

When people grow older, the skin loses its elasticity. However, there are other causes of wrinkling. they include:

Unhealthy lifestyle Habits

Your daily choices increase your chances of either maintaining smooth skin or getting wrinkles. We tend to forget the importance of skincare while engaging in the activities that demand our attention in the course of our day. Interestingly, even chewing gum for a long time has the potential to reduce the elasticity of the skin around the mouth. It can cause folds and lines because the muscle around the mouth is put to frequent use.

It is pertinent to note that when you stare at your phone or the computer monitor for an extended period, you may squint to see clearer. This habit seems to create fine lines around your eyes that eventually become wrinkles. Over time, this breaks down the collagen in your skin resulting in the development of wrinkles. Other habits that tend to cause wrinkles to include:

  1. Eating junk food
  2. Smoking
  3. Not drinking a lot of water
  4. Using the wrong skin product
  5. Forgetting your sunglasses
  6. Habitual frowning

It is recommended that you avoid these unhealthy habits in your day-to-day life engagements. You can participate in support programs to build better positive habits that reduce wrinkles.

Sun Exposure/Damage

When you are exposed to Ultraviolet radiation from the sun, you are vulnerable to having fine lines and wrinkles. This does not exclude the possibility of irregular pigmentation and other changes that make the skin look older than usual. Hence, the premature aging that results from too much exposure to Ultraviolet radiation is called photoaging.

Ultraviolet radiation causes damage to the collagen fibers and sometimes, the elastin produced is abnormal. The damage on the skin tissue produces an enzyme—metalloproteinase. The enzyme is responsible for the creation of collagen but in the course of the production process, there may be a disorganized development of fibers owing to the destruction of the healthy collagen. The wrinkles are developed when this process of reforming collagen happens repeatedly with reduced efficiency. People with dark skin have more protection against Ultraviolet skin alterations than people with light skin.

It is for this reason that individuals have wrinkles even before they approach the aging phase in their lives. The sun-damaged skin makes them look years older than they ordinarily would look if they had protected their skin from the ultraviolet rays. In extreme cases, sun damage can result in skin cancer as the damage may cause deep lines or scaly patches.

It is recommended that you put on protective clothing when going out under the sun. Also, it is advisable to use sunscreen for the areas that are not covered by protective clothing.

Aging

The inevitable fact about life is that we are bound to grow old and when we do, our skin cells become thinner with a reduced ability to retain moisture and to heal in cases of injury. The fragility of the blood vessels makes them break more easily resulting in bruises even from minor injuries.  The reduced elasticity we experience is from the slower production of collagen. Your skin also becomes drier because the skin loses natural oil and its capacity to secrete oil.

Particularly, your genetics also has an influence on how fast your skin ages and the development of wrinkles in your skin.

Repeated Facial Expression

Facial expressions including frowning, squinting, smiling and other expressions done repeatedly can make wrinkles prominent. This is a result of the lines created on the forehead and other deeper lines that eventually become wrinkles. It is recommended that you relax your face and find ways to relieve the stress rather than frowning or stepping into depression. You can engage in yoga, meditation, mindfulness, or other practices that create harmony for your benefit.

How to reduce Wrinkles using the Neck Lift Procedure?

The neck lift procedure smoothens the skin from wrinkles. It rejuvenates your neck and improves your appearance by taking away the sagging look around the chin and neck region. It gives you a youthful look by taking away the outcome of excess wrinkles on your neck.

There are different types of neck lifts depending on your preference, the desired outcome, and your skin condition. You may choose either of the following surgical processes—

  1. Liposuction (removing excess fat)
  2. Cervicoplasty (removing excess skin)
  3. Platysmaplasty (removing or altering neck muscles)

In addition, you may opt for a submentoplasty which is often considered a less invasive procedure for the chin and upper neck region. It is however not exactly a neck lift procedure.
