The Essential Guide to Revitalizing the Often-Neglected Neck Area
at Beaux MedSpa

When was the last time you took a long, hard look at the skin below your chin? If you’re like most, probably not that often, until the boom of virtual meet-ups.

The neck region has often been overshadowed by facial beauty routines, but with countless hours spent in front of screens, this area has made its way into the limelight. Austin’s Beaux MedSpa is here to help you address “tech-neck” and crepiness.

Understanding the Needs of Your Neck

The skin on your neck is more delicate than you might realize. Due to its thin texture, early signs of aging like wrinkles and crepey skin can appear sooner than on the face. Factors like sun exposure, which is notorious for accelerating the aging process, also play a role. Shockingly, most people overlook applying SPF to their neck.

Moreover, the increasing dependency on our gadgets has led to what dermatologists are coining as ‘tech neck’. The continuous downward glance at devices results in horizontal lines forming on the neck. This makes it even more pressing to include the neck in your beauty regimen.

Topical Treatments to Consider

Retinol: This vitamin A derivative is celebrated for boosting skin cell turnover and collagen production. It promises improved skin tone, texture, and elasticity. However, caution is advised; the neck’s delicate skin may be more sensitive to retinol. Starting with gentle application, say a couple of times a week, is the way to go. Don’t just restrict retinol to your face; extend it down to your neck. Our Revision Skin Care DEJ Night Cream is a perfect place to start.

Neck Creams: Pondering about the specialty neck creams? They’re worth the investment. They are specially crafted with ingredients to address the unique concerns of the neck, ensuring it gets the specific care it warrants. Halcyon Skin Care Marine Algae Moisturizer is great for the neck and hands..

Moisturizing: Your neck has fewer hair follicles, making it more prone to dryness. Incorporate a moisturizer that is richer than what you’d use for your face. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin are excellent choices for hydration.

Sunscreen: No beauty routine is complete without this guardian. Sunscreen protects your neck from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays. The one you use for your face will work perfectly for your neck as well. Our Revision Skin Care Intellishade has everything you need in one step. In the morning, this product is your serum, moisturizer and SPF.

Elevate Your Neck Care at Beaux MedSpa

For those looking to take their neck skincare a notch higher, Beaux MedSpa offers a suite of in-office treatments. Micro-needling and laser treatments, like Moxi and CoolPeel, are popular choices.

While Moxi is gentle and perfect for ALL skin tones and types, CoolPeel is more intense, targeting sun damage, neck lines and crows feet.

We also provide SkinTyte, an innovative treatment that stimulates collagen production and helps with skin tightening in all areas. SkinTyte produces optimal benefits after a series of at least 4 treatments spaced about a month apart
