There are several large, broad categories and causes for neck wrinkles. Old-looking skin in general, whether of the neck or back of the hands, décolleté or any area of the body, is generally caused by a combination of hereditary and genetic predisposition and lifestyle factors that exacerbate that genetic predisposition. The primary cause of old-looking neck skin, namely laxity and wrinkles, with or without neckbands and cords, is caused by hereditary aging. Depending on your genetic code and makeup, as you age the collagen content, elastin content and ground substances of your skin, those physical structures in your skin that provide elastic recoil and youthful elasticity, are worn down and lost, leading to lax, inelastic, wrinkled, droopy, saggy, lax skin of the neck, hand, inner thigh, back, arms and knees. Neck wrinkles, which means that the skin is lax and with or without cords, can be made even older with extrinsic, non-genetic causes of skin aging. These extrinsic or lifestyle choices include prolonged and repeated exposure to ultraviolet light and sun damage, combined with weight loss, weight gain, smoking and poor dietary habits and can take neck skin, skin of the back of the hands, loose skin of the arms, forearm, above the knee or inner thigh and cause further and significant deterioration. These extrinsic or secondary causes of old-looking skin include increased pigmentation and brown discolouration with very fine lines, crepey skin and skin that often has the appearance of an “iguana or lizard”.
