Concerned about Neck and Decolletage?

Frequent twisting, turning, and compression of the neck exacerbate these issues, explore our treatments at Skin Medical that can help.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation in the Neck and Decolletage area?

Hyperpigmentation is caused by excess melanin production in the skin, which can result from several factors, including sun exposure, hormonal changes, certain medications, and inflammation.

Often overlooked in skincare routines, the neck and decolletage are prone to visible signs of ageing due to their delicate and thin skin. Minimal fat in this area further contributes to the challenge of treating it effectively. However, rejuvenation of these areas can yield particularly rewarding results.

What are the best treatments for Pigmentation Issues?

There are several treatments available for both hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation:

  • Topical Treatments: Creams and serums containing ingredients like vitamin C, retinol, and hydroquinone can help to lighten hyperpigmented areas and even out skin tone.
  • Chemical Peels: These treatments remove the outer layers of skin, promoting the growth of new, evenly pigmented skin.
  • Laser Therapy: Lasers can target and break down excess melanin in hyperpigmented areas, promoting a more even skin tone.
  • Microdermabrasion: This exfoliating treatment helps to remove dead skin cells and promote the growth of new, evenly pigmented skin.
  • Phototherapy: This treatment uses specific wavelengths of light to target and reduce pigmentation issues.
  • Skincare Routine: Consistent use of sunscreen and protective clothing can prevent further pigmentation issues caused by sun exposure.

For personalised advice and treatment plans, it’s best to consult with a skincare professional who can assess your specific needs and recommend the most effective solutions.

Uneven Pigmentation in the Neck and Decolletage Area

Uneven pigmentation can not only be ageing but can make otherwise healthy skin appear flawed. Even skin tone is associated with looking younger and more fresh-faced. This makes a good deal of sense when we think about how much money is spent on concealer and foundation every year to make the complexion appear more consistent. However, we really sit up and take note when melanin starts to cluster together under the skin, showing up as patches or brown age spots. This clustering is called ‘hyperpigmentation’. You can also have a melanin deficiency, leading to ‘hypopigmentation’. If either one is something that’s bothering you at the moment, then read on—there’s plenty you can do about it.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the questions you need to ask about Neck and Decolletage

Can Over-the-Counter Skincare Creams Help Neck Wrinkles?

Yes, using the right serums and creams can significantly improve the appearance of the neck. Incorporating the same skincare regimen for the neck as for the face can yield noticeable benefits:

  • Hydrating Serums: Hyaluronic acid serums help plump skin cells by retaining moisture.
  • Antioxidant Serums: Vitamin C serum stimulates collagen production and reduces pigmentation marks.
  • Retinoids: Retinol or other retinoids boost collagen, smooth the skin, and enhance overall texture.
  • Sunscreen: Essential for protecting the skin from further UV damage and preventing new wrinkles and pigmentation.

By tailoring treatments to individual needs, Dr. Kersh aims to restore optimum skin health, tightness, and lifting of the neck and decolletage area.

What Happens to the Neck and Decolletage as We Age?

The skin on the neck and chest is thinner than on the face, making it more susceptible to wrinkles and folds. Additionally, the neck and decolletage have fewer oil glands, which means less natural moisture to keep the skin supple. As we age, especially during menopause, the reduction in oestrogen leads to drier skin and decreased elasticity. This area is also more vulnerable to environmental stress and UV damage, further accelerating the ageing process.

What is Hypopigmentation?

Hypopigmentation occurs when there is a deficiency of melanin, leading to lighter patches of skin. Conditions like vitiligo and albinism are examples of hypopigmentation. 

If you’re dealing with uneven pigmentation, there are numerous options available to help you achieve a more consistent and youthful complexion. Whether it’s hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, addressing these concerns can significantly improve your skin’s appearance and boost your confidence.

How to Get Rid of Crepey Skin?
  • Laser Therapy: Tailored for the face, neck, and hands, lasers use specific wavelengths to create controlled heating, stimulating collagen production and tightening skin. Options like Secret Duo by Cutera and Moxi help limit downtime in sensitive areas.
  • Ultherapy: Uses focused ultrasound energy to heat deep skin layers, promoting lifting and tightening, particularly beneficial for sagging or lax skin on the neck and face.
  • Radiofrequency (RF): Generates high-frequency currents that heat the deeper skin layers, promoting collagen and elastin production for a firming effect.
  • Chemical Peels: Exfoliate the skin, stimulate collagen production, and improve texture, reducing crepiness and fine lines.
  • Injectable Moisturisers: Hydrate and smooth the skin, reducing the appearance of crepiness and fine lines, mainly used for the face but can help with hand crepiness too.
  • Dermal Fillers: In the hands of an experienced practitioner, fillers can smooth crepey skin, particularly on the hands.
