The skin over the neck between our jawbone and collar bone gets stretched and pulled in every direction on a daily basis. Furthermore, the effects of constant exposure to sunlight and aging cause our neck skin to become thin and lax. As time passes, this leaves us looking older than we feel.
So, how do we wrestle our skin away from Father Time and get back our natural, youthful looking skin? Well, Dr. B and the team at Therapon have determined that the laxity that our neck skin experiences as we age is due to the loss of collagen. As most of you know, collagen is what gives
to our skin, enabling it to resist laxity. Although many people choose to undergo facelifts to correct this laxity, all they’re really doing is removing excess skin in the same way that you would take up the waist in a skirt. The first step in a real solution is to rebuild and restore the natural collagen matrix in the skin itself.
To achieve this goal, Therapon has developed Theraderm Eternox® Peptide Crème. This product contains a combination of 3 unique peptides that act kind of like the on switch on your computer to stimulate skin cells to make new collagen and repair damaged collagen, restoring your skin to its normal, tight, youthful appearance. In a clinical study, users of Eternox saw a 40% decrease in skin laxity on the jaw and neck area after 12 weeks.
In addition to using Eternox®, Dr. B also recommends:
- Eating a healthy diet
- Drinking plenty of water (8 glasses/day)
- Exercising regularly
In fact, you can even use the Theraderm Skin Renewal System daily on your neck and substitute Eternox® as the moisturizer.
