Burning Red Resolution--Neck Wrinkles Treatment: ThermiRF, Botox, Ultherapy, thermage
You can consult with a Dr. for topical steroids. After it's been healed, a platysmaplasty will be able to fully improve this area but non invasive options can help such as thermiRF, botox, and ultherapy/thermage. I recommend a formal evaluation with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question. Please discontinue the Retin-A (Tretinoin) for about 2 weeks, and just use moisturizer. After that time you can use the Retin-A (pea size mixed with a dollop of moisturizer) every third night on your neck. Your neck is not able to tolerate the Retin-A as well as other parts of your body due to it being very delicate skin. Please follow up with a Board Certified Dermatologist. Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
Burning from Retin A on neck
The neck is unable to tolerate the frequency of applications as much as the face. It should be done about twice per week. Hold the Retin A and let things settle out. It will all calm down. Topical steroids or moisturizers will get it better faster.
