Hands, Neck & Décolletage
Despite a lot of focus being placed on rejuvenating faces, neglecting some of the other highly-exposed body parts can result in looking mismatched. Many of us wear a hat and apply sunscreen on our faces, but often these other areas are forgotten about and show signs of ageing.
Ageing of the hands is characterized by:
- Change in skin texture including:
Thinning of skin
- Volume loss leading to
Increased appearance of tendons
A bony appearance
A dermal filler can be injected into the back of hands to:
Plump them up creating a more youthful effect
Reduce skin laxity and wrinkles
Minimize the appearance of underlying bones, tendons and veins
Neck and chest
This is another area that is subject to external ageing factors such as sun exposure and friction. A wrinkles neck and chest can be a sure giveaway sign of your age, even if your face is rejuvenated with fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments.
A specific kind of dermal filler can be used on the neck and chest to improve the skin’s complexion and radiance by rehydrating and restoring skin moisture.
Additionally, anti-wrinkle injections can be utilised to reduce the appearance of horizontal neck lines and for vertical platysmal neck bands (also known as the Nefertiti treatment). The Nefertiti Lift involves injecting overactive muscle bands in the neck which pull down on the jaw creating jowls. This can create a subtle lift. However, patients with a very saggy jawline are not good candidates and sometimes a filler is also required to help lift the lower face.
