Neck wrinkles, often with sun damage, are a common problem and tend to show our age. Sun damage and neck wrinkling are more common in Caucasians, but wrinkling can occur in any skin type. Major wrinkling and small, fine wrinkles are more common in lean females. Since women often wear facial makeup, which blocks sunlight, their age and sun damage may show more on their necks than on their faces. Having a younger facial appearance with an older looking neck looks funny. Nonsurgical neck rejuvenation is popular. Lasers, like the PicoSure laser and CO2 lasers, will tighten the neck. CO2 laser is only suitable for lighter skin, needs pretreatment with creams and has a week of down time. Lasers are usually less effective per treatment than PRP in the neck area and multiple treatments are often needed. PRP is a cheaper treatment for the same amount of wrinkle reduction. Both lasers and PRP improve sun damage (sometimes called poikiloderma of Civatte). PRP is safe in any skin type or color. In this video, a white lady with sun damage and wrinkles gets neck PRP injections and rates the pain as a 2 out of 10.
