Neck wrinkles and lines are a common sign of ageing. Like all wrinkles, several factors can cause them to develop early. While it is inevitable that you will develop some level of neck wrinkling, there are ways to reduce their appearance.
What causes neck wrinkles?
Several factors contribute towards neck wrinkles and lines. Sun exposure, genetics, and repeated motions of the neck are some of the most common causes.
It is easy to forget about the neck when you are carrying out your anti-ageing skincare routine. However, like the face, it is exposed to high levels of UV rays. Over time, UV ray exposure accelerates the ageing process, leading to visible wrinkles and lines on the neck.
What are neck bands?
Neck bands are medically referred to as platysmal bands. They are muscles located on the sides of the neck. As you age and you lose collagen and fat deposits around the neck, these muscles become much more prominent. Clenching your teeth, weight loss, and stress can all contribute towards more prominent neck bands.
