The neck and “V” shape neckline area also undergo skin aging with dark spots, dilation of vessels, change of coloration with loss of brightness, copper appearance, and formation of vertical lines. There are numerous therapeutic options available to treat the region, and hydration or “skinbooster®” with uncrossed hyaluronic acid is of great value. Injection of uncrossed hyaluronic acid into the skin promotes a high degree of hydration from the inside out. They have been specially developed for skin hydration and are different from the fillers to hyaluronic acid base, which increase and replenish volumes. Skinboosters® do not increase volume or fill furrows, but they restore skin’s luster, smoothness and hydration, and soften fine lines and special areas such as the neck, “V” shape neckline, and eyelids. This chapter is going to describe the concept, indications, and skinbooster® procedure to treat the neck and V shape area.
