One of the obvious signs of aging skin is the formation of horizontal lines on the neck. These are commonly known as neck wrinkles and they can appear regardless of gender and at any age. Horizontal neck lines form over time because of repeated creasing of the skin. While everyone has some neck lines, they may become more obvious with age and skin sagging.
While there are several anti-aging skincare creams for the face to delay aging and firm the skin, there are not that many anti-aging products for the neck. When people age, the skin weakens because of the slow production of collagen and elastin. The skin of the neck becomes thin, saggy, and visibly loose. Aside from the natural aging process, hereditary factors and sun exposure can also accelerate skin aging process. With age, the skin loses its firmness and elasticity. This causes the skin to thin and become sensitive to environmental factors such as sun damage.
Neck lines can never be treated completely. Fortunately, they can be improved, with several available non-invasive treatments.
