Anyone familiar with Nora Ephron will know that as she aged she lamented the state of her neck. She didn’t have the skincare and treatments we do now that specifically target this area. The latest in the launch into this arena? SkinCeuticalsTripeptide-R Neck Repair. This daily-use corrective treatment is meant to smooth the appearance of horizontal neck lines, firm neck skin and visibly reduce neck skin crepiness.
Neck skin ages differently than facial skin; it’s thinner and more fragile, similar to the skin around eyes, making it a difficult area to treat. Additionally, this skin produces fewer lipids than facial skin, leading to a weaker skin barrier more prone to visible damage. Collagen levels decline as we age, combined with constant movement, this can lead to earlier signs of ageing like sagging, crepe-like skin, horizontal neck lines and wrinkles on the neck that are up to
five times deeper than on the face.
SkinCeuticals has designed an ideal formula for the delicate neck area with retinol at a neck-specific concentration appropriate for daily use. Retinol is the gold standard in anti-ageing ingredients, backed by decades of science. Skincare professionals trust retinol due to significant scientific evidence that it promotes cell turnover to help improve uneven skin tone and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Tripeptide-R Neck Repair is specifically formulated with an optimal dose of 0.2% pure, slow-release retinol, tripeptides, and glaucine to target early to advanced signs of visible neck ageing. These three key ingredients are combined within a hydrating delivery system to help ensure it delivers on visible neck ageing:
• 0.2% pure retinol within this formula is known to help to fortify neck skin to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles
• 2.5% tripeptide concentrate helps to strengthen skin to build resilience and firm neck skin
• 5.0% glaucine supports skin’s resistance to visible neck ageing
This unique neck formula is tolerable for daily use and delivers results on multiple signs of ageing with visible results in as early as four weeks. As a brand committed to scientific proof, SkinCeuticals conducted a 16-week independent study to demonstrate Tripeptide-R Neck Repair’s effectiveness on neck skin. It demonstrated statistically significant results on multiple signs of neck specific ageing*:
• 16% improvement in the appearance of horizontal neck lines
• 16% improvement in neck skin firmness
• 27% improvement in neck skin crepiness
• 16% improvement in neck skin elasticity
• 13% improvement in neck skin sagging
• Proven tolerable for daily use
CLINICAL RESULTS ON VISIBLE NECK AGEING
In a 16-week study subjects saw a significant improvement in horizontal neck lines, skin firmness, and crepiness, with visible results in as early as four weeks.
*Protocol: A 16-week, clinical study was conducted on 50 females, ages 40-60, with mild to moderate sagging on neck, fine lines and wrinkles, including horizontal neck lines, firmness on neck, crepiness, elasticity on neck, rough skin, and uneven skin tone. Tripeptide-R Neck Repair was used nightly as tolerated in conjunction with a sunscreen. After 1 week, use was increased to twice daily as tolerated in conjunction with a sunscreen. Efficacy evaluations were conducted at baseline and at weeks 4, 8, 12, and 16.
As part of an at-home regimen, Tripeptide-R Neck Repair extends your skincare regimen to the neck area: use with an antioxidant, a moisturiser in the SkinCeuticals corrective portfolio and a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen to maximize corrective benefits.
