Aging Face and Neck

As we age, it’s natural for us to form wrinkles and loss of facial volume. Our collagen starts to produce slowly and our elastin becomes less elastic. These all start around our 20s and become more apparent as we get older. The aging process not only affects our face & neck, it also causes our body skin to lose tightness, producing saggy body skin.

See how the aging process is visualised in the following video:


What Happens to an Aging Neck?

Skin on the neck ages and deteriorates with sun exposure, genetic tendency, and weight gain. The skin becomes slack and forms unwanted horizontal wrinkles. Fibres of Platysma, the flat superficial muscle under-draping the skin of the neck, tightens and separates into fibrous vertical bands popularly called “turkey bands”. As bone volume is lost with aging, the Mandible (lower jaw) shortens. This loss of supporting framework causes skin from lower face and under-chin to descend and hang as if it were redundant, causing the “turkey neck” appearance that most people wish to avoid.


What Options Are Available at Medical Spa Club?

Until recently the only option for rejuvenation of the neck and face jowls was through surgical treatments. While surgery is very effective in improving the appearance of the neck when the changes of aging are advanced, the surgical risks and discomfort of recuperative period are not warranted in early stages, when signs of aging are beginning to appear.

Fortunately, there are a number of non-surgical options also available for both the early stages of face & neck aging, as well as for improving skin quality after surgery in more advanced cases. There are a number of popular treatment options available at Medical Spa Club in Richmond, B.C.:
