Causes Of Neck Wrinkles

Like the cause of most wrinkling on the skin, neck lines are caused predominantly by ageing. So, although you cannot avoid it forever, there are many ways to minimise them if you already have them, or, to prevent them from developing if you are concerned. There are other lifestyle factors and triggers that can worsen neck lines, or onset them prematurely. Some of these are; 

  • Sun overexposure
  • Repeated neck motions
  • Not wearing SPF 
  • Genetics
  • Smoking


Also referred to as neck bands, this is a nickname for the muscles in your neck. As you age, your muscles lose their strength and elasticity and fat can begin to collect around the neck.

Treatments for neck wrinkles


The most effective treatment for neck wrinkles is using Botulinum Toxin (Botox) to give a ‘neck lift’ effect. Botox can provide the best results for a neck lifting effect as it is extremely natural looking, and you won’t have a ‘frozen’ or uncomfortable feeling. Botox is a naturally purified protein that acts as a muscle relaxant to give your neck a smooth, lifted appearance.


It is important to note that Botox normally takes around 5-7 days to reach its full effect, so you may now feel like it has worked instantly. All of our injectors at our clinic are medically qualified professionals with years of experience and training working with accredited Botox products.
