Don't Neglect the Neck!
Skincare shouldn't stop at the jawline
As you all know by now, your skincare routine is as important as brushing and flossing your teeth everyday. But, did you know that taking care of your neck is just as important as taking care of your face? Most skincare products mention to bring product down to your neck and decollete but that doesn’t always happen. This is where SpaDerma comes in! We can help treat your neck with the special care it needs to match a glowing Medical Facial, rejuvenating Clear + Brilliant Treatment, or moisturizing Hydrafacial. Remember, skincare shouldn’t stop at your jawline!
So, why treat your neck?
The skin on the neck is not just thin, it is also sensitive and requires more attention than you’d think! This is why it's important to take care of the neck area to ensure the skin remains taut and plump. Prevention is always easier than correction, so even if you’re not seeing any sagging (yet) it’s as good a time as any to start taking special care of your neck. The neck’s platysmal muscles are particularly prone to sagging, as they are not directly connected to any bone to hold them up & support them. With the neck being so susceptible to the effects of gravity,the ageing process tends to begin much faster than other areas. If you’re starting to see those early on-set signs of ageing, it’s time to start getting serious about your neck’s skincare at SpaDerma! Lincoln Park’s Lead Educator, Aesthetician and Laser + Light Specialist, Ashley Powers remarks, “Your skin doesn't stop at your jawline,which is why you should be treating your neck with every corrective treatment. By ‘neglecting the neck’ you are creating a clear line of treated and untreated skin, a demarcation if you will. Your face may look 30 while your neck looks 50+”

Ashley explains, “You can bring your facial skincare down to your neck, but a neck specific product will be much more effective. The skin on your neck absorbs product differently than your face, which is why there are neck creams in the first place. Two of my favorite neck-focused products we have on our shelves are the Neocutis Neofirm and SkinBetter’s Techno. The Neofirm is a glycolic peptide cream that helps brighten your skin while also firming the fine lines on your neck and decollete. Skinbetter's Techno Perfecting Cream is their newest formula that contains Nitric Oxide, which is naturally found in our skin. As we age however, Nitric Oxide depletes significantly, which contributes to skin aging. The SkinBetter Techno is the first of its kind, as it helps to bring homeostasis to the neck tissue, providing an optimal place for skin to thrive. Of course, no product is more important than sunscreen, so don’t forget that!"
This moisturizing complex helps firm and tighten skin, support the restoration of lost collagen and elastin, and diminish the appearance of age spots and uneven skin tone. Formulated specifically for the neck and décolleté, this intensive anti-aging treatment contains a concentrated blend of ingredients precisely formulated to combat visible signs of aging. This “complex” is packed with antioxidants and moisturizers as well as exfoliating properties to encourage cell turnover for a softer and more luminous appearance.
This cream delivers a significant improvement in the appearance of crepiness, laxity and the neck and decollete’s skin texture. This cream hydrates the skin while softening, improving texture, and increasing the skin’s suppleness.
