THE NECK

Overlooked and often neglected, the neck is frequently forgotten about in our pursuit to refresh our appearance. However, a smooth, swan-like neck is important in creating a harmonious-looking aesthetic: not simply because it sits in such close proximity to the face – but because it is comprised of some powerful muscles, which have a significant impact on the “lower third” – in particular, the mouth and the jowls.

THE ROLE
OF THE
PLATYSMA

The main muscle in the neck is the platysma, which is attached to the corners of the mouth. It is a “depressor” muscle, in that it pulls downwards, and this is what enables us to produce certain facial expressions. However, over time, it can also contribute to a sagging lower face, by constantly pulling the mouth and jowls down – resulting in a saddened appearance and a slack looking jawline. Muscle relaxing injections such as Botox® can therefore be extremely helpful at softening this activity, and counteracting a resting “negative” facial expression.

TREATING THE
SKIN OF THE NECK

Neck

The neck is also unique in that its skin does not contain the myriad sebaceous glands that the face does – and this can contribute to dryness and dehydration. Meanwhile, constant movement and staring down at our phones or devices exacerbates the problem, resulting in wrinkles and so-called “necklace lines”. Though bothersome, these lines can be effectively softened with energy-based treatments: such as Fractional Skin Resurfacing or Morpheus8. Our expert doctor-led team will be happy to advise which approach is best-suited to you.
