They say you can tell a person’s age by looking at their neck. When you make time to care for your skin with regular treatments and at-home rituals, a crepey neck and jawline is the last thing you want. Never fear — we’re here to help you care for yourself fully, including those areas that sometimes get neglected!
Believe it or not, a tighter jawline and smooth neck can be achieved without invasive surgery. Our expert aestheticians are here to share a range of options you can use at home or in Paul Edmonds London salons. It’s time to shape up!
What causes neck wrinkles and soft jawlines?
There are several factors that cause your jawline and neck to drop or wrinkle. As you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin — two proteins that are responsible for how taught, firm and supple your skin is. Not only is the skin on your neck thinner, it’s also a highly mobile body part that continually bends and twists with the motion of our head. This makes it far more susceptible to wrinkles over time!
Genetics have a part to play in how the skin on your neck and jaw develop as you age. This is why it’s important to take action early if you suspect you’re genetically prone to looser skin in this area. Daily activities are also a contributing factor, the most common being looking down at a smartphone or laptop screen (it’s called ‘tech neck’!).
It’s common for the neck and full jawline area to be neglected during a daily skincare ritual. Many of us are so focused on facial problem areas that we forget to bring product further down onto the neck area! After all — it’s not just your face that needs TLC. Your neck and jawline can also benefit from cleansing, toning, and moisturising. Here’s how to get rid of neck wrinkles in our salons and at home…
At-home treatments for a firm neck and defined jawline
Whether you’re looking for a dedicated product to bring into your existing at-home skincare ritual or want something to maintain the results of a treatment, you can find a solution in this mini edit!
Tripeptide-R Neck Repair (£110)
SkinCeuticals Tripeptide-R Neck Repair is an award-winning 0.2% retinol cream that has been specially formulated for the neck area. It uses Tripeptide Concentrate to fortify and firm the skin, while Glaucine Complex reduces collagen denaturing, so you keep more of your natural firmness for longer.
How to use
This neck firming cream has a strong formulation, so should only be used once a week for the first week. You can increase this to twice daily once you’ve built up a retinol tolerance. Massage two pumps of product in upward movements towards the jawline for the best effects. This cream is excellent to use alongside a non surgical treatment like radiofrequency therapy, so you can maximise how tight, firm and lifted your skin appears.
CE Ferulic (£135)
Add a potent dose of antioxidants to your neck and jawline ritual. SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic is loaded with 15% pure Vitamin C to tighten, tone and reverse the visible signs of ageing. The award-winning serum protects gentle skin from free radical damage, so it’s perfect for the delicate neck area.
How to use
Massage 4 – 5 drops of product into the face, neck and jawline areas with your fingertips. It’s gentle enough for use once a day and is best used on towel-dried skin after cleansing
A.G.E. Interrupter (£160)
SkinCeuticals A.G.E Interrupter is an advanced corrective moisturiser that targets ageing and sagging caused by hormonal changes and metabolic slowdown. It’s formulated with powerful blueberry antioxidants, Proxylane to rebuild, and Phytospinogosine to protect the skin’s barrier. No more creping and thinning around the neck and jaw!
How to use
This can be applied once or twice daily as part of your skincare routine.

Eminence Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream uses a delicate blend of botanical Hyaluronic Acid and hibiscus to instantly firm and lift the neck and jaw. It’s 100% organic and is suitable for all genders and all skin types, so everyone can enjoy it!
How to use

An award-winning product designed to target smile lines but you can also use it on deep neck creases. Eminence Hibiscus Instant Line Filler contains botanical peptides to smooth, tighten and firm. It contains 100% organic ingredients and gives instant, long-lasting results!
How to use
Use the innovative curved applicator to apply the serum to targeted areas of the neck. This can be used once or twice daily and should be left on the skin after it’s applied.

Non surgical neck tightening treatments at Paul Edmonds
Our Knightsbridge salon is a result-driven skincare destination that offers a range of non surgical treatments which are every bit as effective as you’d expect when you book an appointment with us. We start with a complimentary consultation and skin analysis, in which an expert practitioner will suggest a bespoke combination of techniques and therapies. You can enjoy our non surgical neck tightening treatments on their own or include them as part of a regimen to maintain the results of a laser or fat reduction treatment.
You’ve heard about using it for scarring, hyperpigmentation and texture, but microneedling for wrinkles is also a thing! It uses tiny needles to penetrate the upper layers of the skin to create a ‘traumatic effect’. This triggers your skin’s repair process, increasing fibroblasts, elastin and natural collagen to tighten, firm and rejuvenate your skin.
At Paul Edmonds, we offer a tailored approach that can be adapted to treat different areas of the face, neck and décolleté. As always, you’ll be well cared for — our treatments include numbing cream, a deep cleanse, hyaluronic masque, antioxidant solution and powerful SPF.
Not a fan of needles? We’ve got you covered! Our mesotherapy treatment delivers medical-grade Hyaluronic Acid and Antioxidants through a current. This works to tighten, firm and lift while densifying the delicate skin around the neck.
Are you ready to extend your skincare routine? You can find all these luxurious care products in our online shop. You can also visit us for a non-surgical treatment once we re-open — we can’t wait to welcome you through the doors!
