Hi,

Yes, it can help reduce and prevent wrinkles on the neck as well. Probably much cheaper than all your other brand name neck creams too, especially if you have a repeat prescription and pick it up from a pharmacy (NSC stocks)!

Just be sure to use sunscreen as well as it can increase the risk of sun damage. The other risk is skin sensitivity – so watch out for this. To avoid sensitivity, start with a lower concentration such as 0.025% or 0.05% to minimize irritation and redness, and apply it in the evenings. If you can work up to a higher percentage, it will generally be more effective.

Also, it generally works best at PREVENTING rather than treating lines on your neck…As your sun damage becomes more apparent, it probably becomes less effective at getting rid of the lines.

Generally if it hasn’t helped in 4-6 months, further use is unlikely to be of added benefit. You may want to consider Laser treatment/Botox/Fillers/Peels at this point. Speak to your doctor/dermatologist about this.

Cheers

Hi J,

Yes it can reduce neck wrinkles, provided they are not very severe and confined to the superficial layer of the skin.

Deeper ones with collagen and fat loss (sunken in) will require fillers as well.
