Can a Neck Cream Work for You?
With so much attention paid to facial skin, it can be easy to overlook an equally visible and vulnerable area: your neck. Sun damage and the natural effects of aging are usually the culprits behind loose skin on your neck. While sunscreen and sun avoidance can help, eventually, everyone experiences signs of aging in the neck area.
Neck Cream Benefits
The trick to improving the appearance of loose neck skin is to give the neck area the same amount of care and attention you give to facial skin. In addition to your normal skincare routine, implementing a neck cream to help promote collagen production and moisturize your skin is highly recommended.
With regular use, neck creams can help tighten skin without requiring surgical intervention.
Luckily, neck skin responds well to the same ingredients that you use on your face, so high-quality products will work on your face as well as your neck. And because your neck has fewer oil glands than your face, it can handle heavier creams and products without causing clogged pores.
However, there is a difference between choosing a neck tightening cream from off the shelf and receiving guidance and consultation from authorized providers of medical-grade treatments.
The creams you see on the shelves at your local pharmacy differ greatly from what are known as medical-grade products, which are available from dermatologists or med spa treatment offices.
What sets medical-grade neck creams apart from their over-the-counter (OTC) counterparts are these attributes of the active ingredients:
- Clinical testing
Neck creams, moisturizers, and sunscreens that are considered medical-grade offer distinct benefits over OTCs.
Medical-grade quality means that the active ingredients in a formulation have been thoroughly researched and tested by scientists and skin experts, a time-consuming process that yields the most effective and innovative formulations.
Providers know that only those in the medical community take the time and effort to develop these ingredients.
In contrast, the makers of OTC products often adapt research and formulas from medical-grade skincare product companies instead of developing their own.
With medical-grade products, you don’t have to worry about low levels of active ingredients. Peptides, antioxidants, retinoids, and AHAs all can transform the appearance of your neck and skin—at a level beyond that found in most OTC formulations.
While they may have the same name, certain active ingredients appear in the OTC formulations at a much lower concentration. Because medical-grade products are only available from an authorized provider, the manufacturer can create stronger formulas that create faster, longer-lasting results.
Medical-grade products go through years of rigorous scientific research and testing before they are made available. Because they have lower concentrations of active ingredients, OTC products don’t require the same level of testing as medical-grade products.
However, you should know that some OTC companies will still make claims that haven’t been clinically proven for their specific product.
