IRVINE, Calif., April 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company (NYSE: ABBV), announces the launch of SkinMedica® Neck Correct Cream, the first product from the professional-grade skincare line formulated to address the specific biology of the skin on the neck and décolleté area. SkinMedica® Neck Correct Cream was designed to prevent the early signs as well as treat the visible appearance of moderate to severe neck aging. It is clinically proven to firm and tighten the look of crepey skin, prevent and reduce the look of sagging, smooth deep lines and wrinkles and enhance skin tone evenness.1
"The neck and décolleté area are extensions of the face but require a totally different treatment plan due to the unique biology of the neck skin," says Colleen McKenna, Vice President of Facial Aesthetics & SkinMedica® Marketing, Allergan Aesthetics. "Neck wrinkles are five times deeper than wrinkles on the cheeks, while sagging of the neck skin is more severe than any other part of the body. The skin of the neck is also thinner, similar to the skin on eyelids.2 When designing the SkinMedica® Neck Correct Cream, it was imperative for our R&D team to address these concerns with a multi-modal approach and develop a product with cutting edge ingredients, a cosmetically elegant texture and clinically-proven performance."
The SkinMedica® Neck Correct Cream will launch with a digital-led campaign, #SmoothTheWay to showcase the product's performance and honor those who have smoothed the way for brighter futures for others. The team at SkinMedica® and Allergan Aesthetics acknowledges that it is a luxury to be able to use your voice for good, to break barriers and stick your neck out to better society.
With more than two decades of excellence in innovation, SkinMedica® continues to rely on research to formulate the most advanced and innovative skincare products that deliver strong, efficacious results. The SkinMedica® Neck Correct Cream has a luxurious formula of power-house peptides, antioxidants and active botanical extracts uniquely designed to target the biological pathways specific to neck aging which include:1
- Dermal Thickness & Skin Elasticity- Rice Protein, Shitake Mushroom Extract, Green Microalgae Extract, Lemon Balm Extract and Peptides
- Support extracellular matrix proteins, including collagen and elastin
- Platysma Muscle- Paracress Extract
- Helps reduce the appearance of platysmal bands
- Free Radical Damage- Knotgrass Extract & Dunaliella Salina Extract
- Protects skin from free radicals
"The neck is an instant indicator of age, and the neck is having a major moment due to the rise of patients experiencing neck related concerns from increased use of technological devices," says Dr. Mona Gohara, Dermatologist and Associate Clinical Professor, Yale School of Medicine. "Neck creams on the market have traditionally relied on ingredients to support the dermal matrix, not understanding that neck aging is a multifaceted issue. The SkinMedica® Neck Correct Cream addresses the loss of collagen and elastin, concerns of "tech neck" that contribute to not only the visible, but the intrinsic signs of neck aging. Not only will I be adding the SkinMedica® Neck Correct Cream to my regimen, but this is a product I recommend for patients spanning trans-generationally; from those in their 20s who want to proactively prejuvenate the neck region, all the way up to my patients in their 60s-80s who want to treat moderate to severe signs of neck aging."

- At week 4, there were significant improvements in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crepiness and roughness.
