Journal of Aesthetic Nursing

Volume 3, Issue 4

Dr Basia KubickaDr Barbara Kubicka is a regular author and contributor on skincare and anti-ageing issues for a variety of publications, including Healthista, Natural Health, London Economic, and more.

Now her article on neck rejuvenation has been featured in an esteemed medical publication, the Journal of Aesthetic Nursing.

The article, entitled Treatment modalities for neck rejuvenation in aesthetic practice: benefits and limitations, examines the options for Aesthetic Practitioners in treating this notoriously difficult area.

As the article explains:

Aesthetic practitioners have access to a plethora of tools, products and techniques, all of which can be used to help patients achieve younger, fresher skin.

However, many practitioners tend to focus treatment on the areas that trouble their patients the most, such as wrinkles on the forehead, lines around the eyes and creases around the nasolabial folds.

When practitioners focus their efforts on these facial areas, there can be a noticeable difference when compared to other parts of the body, such as the neck. If an individual’s face looks smooth and line-free and his or her neck is wrinkled with loose skin, this can result in a stark aesthetic contrast.

This article explores various anti-ageing neck treatments, outlining the benefits of the different available modalities. The most appropriate treatment plan should be chosen by the aesthetic practitioner based on each individual patient’s needs, requirements and expectations.
