Neck Wrinkles: 4 Treatments that worked for me

by Linda Robison

Neck wrinkles can be caused by many factors like genetics, lifestyle choices natural aging, and repetitive movements like looking down at screens (tech neck). 

Just like the skin around the eye area, it doesn't take much for the delicate skin around the neck and chest area to show the appearance of fine lines wrinkles.

The good news:

I found 4 topical treatments you can do at-home that works well for all skin types.

You can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and skin elasticity, necklines, brown spots, and crepey skin.

In a few months, you can see a smoother, firmer, younger-looking neck. 

While you may not get rid of them completely, there are several options to help soften the appearance of neck lines and improve skin texture without surgery or expensive procedures!

Keep on reading below and be sure to scroll down and check out my before and after pictures.

Neck lines: Cheap, non-invasive solutions

Inexpensive Over-The-Counter Solutions for a Youthful Appearance

There are many in-office procedures that can help improve the appearance of the neck including; Botox, dermal fillers, Radio Frequency (RF), and laser & light therapy treatments.

And, of course, more invasive cosmetic procedures like a lower face and neck lift which provide immediate results.

But, I found some inexpensive at-home treatment options that can significantly improve the appearance of your neck and provide a more supple appearance.

I'm living proof! Just check out my before and after pictures below.

Here are the 4 best treatment solutions that worked for me:

  1. Exfoliate
  2. Hydrate
  3. Revitalize
  4. Massage

1. Exfoliate Neck Lines

Homemade Scrubs

Whether on your face, neck, or body, your skin needs help shedding dead cells. This is especially important if you're over 40 since this process slows down as we age. 

Using a mild scrub, gently exfoliate your neck and chest weekly.

This will:

  • improve the appearance of your skin through increased blood flow
  • allow moisturizers to be absorbed better
  • make neck wrinkles and lines less noticeable
  • and provide almost instant visible results

When dead skin cells build up they settle inside the wrinkle making it apparent. So make sure to exfoliate your neck at least once a week and follow up with a good neck cream or moisturizer.

What type of scrub to use?

I mix a tiny amount of sugar and face oil, almond oil (or even olive oil) into a creamy paste and scrub my neck and chest once a week. Here is a sample of a scrub I made at-home.

*Just make sure you test it on a small area first if the delicate skin of your neck is extra sensitive. Lorena Balensi, owner of Balensi Spa, suggests that homemade scrubs are typically safe and are unlikely to provoke skin issues. She advises applying them with gentle movements and using light to moderate pressure.

2. Hydrate 

Rich Moisturizers

Reduce the appearance of a crepey neck by keeping skin hydrated.

A good moisturizer that locks in hydration can help keep your neck's skin looking healthier and plumper, and minimize the look of wrinkles.

If you spend much time outdoors, consider using moisturizers that offer sun protection against UV light and free radicals.

I like to use moisturizers that feed the skin and protect against the natural aging process, like a CBD infused antioxidant moisturizing cream. Or an omega-3 and ceramide rich lipids cream to soften the look of lines,

Omega-3 Ceramides 

Neck Patches - Medical-Grade Silicone

Occasionally, I like to use silicone neck pads (like SIO Beauty Neck Patches) and silicone chest wrinkle pads (like Reusable Silicone Chest Pad Anti wrinkle Reusable Patches).

With consistent use in the desired areas, you will see smoother skin and better skin tone on your neck and décolleté area.

These little beauties help your skin hold-on to moisture for a long time. I'll use them before a special event or a few times a month during dry, cold winter months.

3. Revitalize Your Neck Skin

Feed Your Skin and Build Collagen with Vitamin C Serum

Concentrated L-Ascorbic acid will help reduce lines, wrinkles, and brown spots. But, you must also exfoliate in order to see good results.

This step is a MUST especially for reducing brown spots anywhere on your body.

A pure concentrated vitamin C serum can do the follow:

  • reduce UV damage like age spots or hyperpigmentation
  • reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • improve firmness and tone
  • increase skin brightness
  • increase production of collagen

You can see a reduction in the visible signs of aging after 9 months of following these neck wrinkle solutions.

Can you make your own vitamin C serum at home? Yes, I guess you can. But, I'm not a chemist and am not sure on the exact portions of vitamin C powder to serum ratio.

I've been using this concentrated vitamin C serum for years.  It's super rich, luxurious, hydrating and seems to work just great for me. So, I'll stick with this one.

4. Massage

Massage Your Neck Skin Daily Using The Brush Method

Specific face/neck exercises and massages can help firm skin, build and strengthen the muscles of the neck and even to firm up the lower part of the face. 

Here is just a sample of a neck massage you can do to help firm up the skin each time you apply your moisturizer.

Note: If you perform a full face/neck exercise routine you'll see a lot of other areas of your face (in addition to your neck) become firmer, lifted and fuller.

Best tips to get rid of neck wrinkles

For best results, practice prevention before you see signs of an aging neck. Simple habits can prevent the early onset of horizontal neck lines.

This is especially true when it comes to tech neck, try to maintain good posture by holding your smartphone or computer at eye level, in front of your face.

Also, make sure your skin care routine includes protection from sun damage, which can speed up the neck's aging process. 

Don't expect results overnight

Some say they see immediate (but temporary) results using the SiO Neck Patch.

However, for long term, best results - practice prevention and follow the 4 neck wrinkle solutions listed above.

Like anything involving wrinkles and anti-aging techniques, skin changes take time...

So be patient and don't skip steps.

Get into good skincare habits. You can see from my photos above that improvements are possible.

The difference between my before and after pictures is incredible but took many months to get there!
