Turtlenecks and strategically draped scarves do not have to be a fashion staple anymore for women over 40! We all know that the neck is one of the first places to show signs of aging, which is why it’s always surprising how few skincare products actually target this fear-inducing area. No wonder Nectifirm, Revision Skincare’s anti-aging cream specifically formulated for the neck, is so popular with our patients!
Nectifirm contains a long list of active ingredients that work together to make the neck firm and smooth. In the clinical study, 96% of patients experienced a firmer neck with Nectifirm after 6-8 weeks of twice daily use. In a nutshell, Nectifirm:
- Increases collagen production
- Increases elastin production
- Targets the DEJ
Nectifirm increases collagen production.
Collagen is a structural protein that is found throughout our entire body. Collagen provides skin with strength and durability. You can basically think of collagen as a structural wall that supports the skin. Essentially, healthy levels of collagen gives our skin a plump and smooth appearance. As we age, collagen breaks down, and our skin loses its firmness, which is when fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. After the age of 20, a person typically produces one percent less collagen each year. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and weaker, which is why it’s so important to use skincare products, like Nectifirm, that contain a number of peptides that are known to increase collagen production.
Nectifirm increases elastin production.
The neck has collagen, but it has an even higher amount of elastin. When you think of elastin, think of a rubberband; it gives skin the ability to stretch and then snap back into place. As we age, our skin produces less elastin and the skin becomes loose, resulting in the dreaded “turkey neck.” Unfortunately, skincare products that contain elastin are ineffectual because “raw” elastin cannot pass through the outer later of the skin. All of the ingredients in Nectifirm work together to increase fibroblast activity, which stimulates elastin production on the cellular level.
Another difference between the face and the neck is that the neck has far fewer oil glands. Less oil glands means less natural hydration. Overtime, excessive dryness can lead to crepiness and wrinkles, another unfortunate characteristic of the “turkey neck.” Nectifirm uses a proprietary blend of bamboo, silica, english pea extract and glucosamine to keep the neck hydrated, firm and tone.
Nectifirm targets the DEJ.
Nectifirm’s current formula contains two new peptides that specifically target the dermo-epidermal junction (DEJ). The DEJ is the area that connects the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin, acting as a communication center between the two skin layers. The DEJ maintains skin cohesion and distributes essential nutrients to the epidermis to promote healthy skin. As we age, the DEJ begins to flatten out, diminishing contact between the two layers of skin, resulting in loss of elasticity and firmness. Recent research shows that reinforcing the DEJ greatly enhances topical anti-aging results.
Use Nectifirm Twice Daily.
For best results, Nectifirm should be applied in upward motion, every morning and evening. Most patients see visible results after 6-8 weeks, though many find results are best achieved after consistent use for three months. Patients report a decrease in the appearance of wrinkle depth, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and skin appearing more firm and lifted than before.
People Love Nectifirm.
“I have been using Nectifirm for the past six months and I absolutely love it. I’ve always worn turtle necks to cover up my crepey neck. Now that my neck is smooth, I’ve packed all my turtlenecks away.”
“I could do a commercial for Nectifirm. After generously applying Nectifirm twice a day, I have seen visible, dramatic improvement. It's a great value for the results!”
“I have tried Nectifirm for about 8 weeks and it is wonderful. I use it twice a day, and have seen a general increase in tightness under my chin and on my neck. It was the one area where I was starting to age, and I am thrilled with the results of this non-invasive topical wonder.”
