Dr. Darclee Recommends: Decolletage and neck treatments for sagging skin

It’s no secret that, one way or another, we’re apprehensive about how our skin looks and feels. We, as beauty conscious women, often wonder if our skin is healthy enough and we look well for our biological age.

The problem is, we don’t know just how our skin should be at a certain point in our life!

We all know the skin ages. But, did you know that there are specific changes you can expect to happen to the skin within each decade as well as preventative measures you can take to slow down the ageing process and keep your skin looking radiant and youthful?

That’s exactly what Dr. Darclee specialises in and is about to talk about.

In this article, our newest expert in regenerative aesthetic medicine, Dr. Darclee Bottez, explains what telltale changes you can expect to happen on your skin during your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond. She will also advice on decolletage and neck treatments to keep your skin looking beaming and youthful even past these decades!

There is a lot of pressure on women nowadays, because there is so much on offer out there but it is mostly focused on the face. Today Dr.Darclee is focusing on the often neglected but equally important neck and decolletage area.

Ageing skin, sagging muscles, and developing jowls and double chin are a cause of concern for many people. Sun exposure, lifestyle factors, and the natural process of ageing are a few of many factors affecting this delicate area.

What can we do to prevent signs of ageing in the neck area? 

In your late 20s, or early 30’s you will often notice laxity under the chin area, thinning of the neck skin, and the appearance of horizontal lines.

Preventative treatments: Combination of PRP+skinboosters and RF Microneedling

In your late 30s, or early 40’s, a double chin starts to appear, as well as jowls and an uneven jawline. The skin on the neck and decolletage area will start to lose elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid which significantly affects skin quality. The skin will start to look crepey and saggy starting to form ‘’turkey neck’’ .

Recommended treatments: Profilho, Smooth PDO threads, and Ultraformer.

From 45 onwards you are likely to require a combination of decolletage and neck treatments to visibly reduce the signs of aging such as a saggy neck, turkey neck, and double chin.

The most effective is a combination of treatments with APTOS threads, collagen biostimulators such as Ellanse or Sculptra, and Secret PRO combining RF microneedling and CO2 laser.

All of the above is what we can do for you in the clinic, but the foundation for good and healthy-looking skin starts with you at home! Hydration is key, drink plenty of water and also take suitable vitamins and supplements. In clinic, we also offer IV therapy, which boosts your skin from within. The other key element for youthful and healthy-looking skin is the age-appropriate skincare routine. Make sure you use high-quality cosmetics (high-quality is not necessarily determined by price) and ALWAYS apply sunscreen, SPF 50, even on the not-so-sunny days.
