Using a face cream on your neck may not be cutting it, Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains.

There are plenty of people who wouldn’t dream of skipping their face cream in the morning. They diligently cleanse, tone and protect the complexion without realizing they are ignoring a highly exposed and often damaged area. In this presentation, Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains why it is important to invest in a neck treatment and which method is best for you.

The skin on the neck and chest is very thin and, therefore, more susceptible to damage. This area is also frequently exposed to UV rays and free radicals. Products that target the décolletage repair and rebuild damaged skin.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger lists sun damage and loss of firmness as the main concerns that affect the neck area.

Many people forget to apply their sun protection product below the chin. This causes signs of damage to appear including dark spots, fine lines and a rough, uneven texture. Skin on the neck and chest also loses collagen and elastin as we age, making the area appear loose and saggy.

There are several cosmetic procedures available that can restore a healthy and youthful appearance to the skin. Pellevé is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency waves to stimulate the production of collagen. This increases the firmness and elasticity of the area while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and unevenness.

Try these products recommended by Dr. Joel Schlessinger.

Along with a sun protection product, anti-aging creams formulated for the neck can reduce and prevent the appearance of damage. Revision Skincare Nectifirm is a top-selling cream that tightens and firms the décolletage while hydrating the delicate skin. To fade dark spots, try Obagi ELASTIderm Décolletage System, which uses hydroquinone to brighten the complexion.
