Let’s face it ladies. Right around the age of 40, we all start to see changes in our lower face and neck. Skin gets lax and crepey, and loses some of its firmness and resiliency, and that crisp and well-defined profile angle we could always count on is no more. We see it in photos, and thus, go to great lengths to camouflage it, with filters, Photoshop, scarves and turtlenecks. It isn’t pretty.
ALASTIN’s new Restorative Neck Complex helps correct these signs of aging, resulting in a firmer, more elastic, and smoother appearance of the neck and dÃ©colletage and a more even skin tone. This breakthrough treatment is formulated to address the most common age-related changes below the chin and above the chest that tend to accumulate over time, despite a diligent application of SPF50.
“The neck and dÃ©colletage area is exceptionally prone to redness, wrinkling, dryness and loss of elasticity,” says La Jolla, CA dermatologist Arisa Ortiz, MD. “With Alastin’s Restorative Neck Complex, there is finally a product dedicated to address the unique concerns of the neck and dÃ©colletÃ©! The formulation is so gentle, yet effective for improving texture, discoloration and firmness of the skin. It also augments results when used with laser and light based procedures.”
Another major issue with the aging neck is redness. According to Houston area dermatologist Suneel Chilukuri, â€œBased on my experience with Alastinâ€™s Restorative Neck Complex, it is both an excellent topical treatment when used on its own as a part of an ongoing skin care routine. I have found that it addresses redness associated with aging and sun damage in as little as 6 weeks for many of our patients. By 8 weeks, patients notice that the overall texture of their neck and dÃ©colletage is improved. By 12 weeks, the majority of patients find an overall decrease in the amount of sagging of the neck skin. ”
Alastin also scores high marks from plastic surgeons. “Alastinâ€™s new neck complex is yet another great product from their scientific team, says San Diego plastic surgeon Steven Cohen at Faces Plus,Â “In previous studies, we demonstrated pronounced improvement in collagen and elastin with a simple 2-week course before facelift surgery. The rapid cleanup of the extracellular matrix with improvement in elastin and collagen was very complimentary with our regenerative approaches. Under the microscope, the tissues looked like someone raked the leaves, leaving behind a beautiful lawn,” he adds.
The patent-pending TriHex Technology was originally developed by a plastic surgeon turned stem cell researcher, Alan Widgerow, MD, who serves as Chief Medical Officer. This unique combination of key peptides and other age-reversing ingredients has extensive clinical data to support how it helps to reawaken the skin’s youthful regenerating processes.Â It supports the production of new elastin and collagen and helps rebuild and recycle the skin’s extracellular matrix (ECM) by clearing out byproducts of aging from exposure to sun and pollution. So it promotes your skin’s capacity to generate fresh, new skin that is strong and supple and more youthful.
