I am 60 years old with generally very good skin – except for my ‘Turkey neck!’ Would I be better investing in a Luna laser or getting a salon tweakement? . Thank you!

Hi, I think you should find a great practitioner (plenty of them on the website here) and discuss what tweakments they could offer that would really help. depending on your budget and what shape your neck is in. A single session of laser treatment can do a good deal to improve the look of the skin and tighten it, or if your neck looks tense and ‘stringy’, then injections of toxin (eg Botox) to release tight muscles under the chin can really help.

You ask about the ‘Luna laser’. If you mean the Lyma laser I’m not keen on it – it doesn’t have a medical CE certification like the Dermalux does, for example, which means it can make medical claims to treat, for example, acne and heal wounds). I tried it for months on end last year (on my neck, and on my hand) without getting any results, and all my laser-manufacturer acquaintances laugh at it when I ask them what they think of its supposed powers of rejuvenation. It makes enormous claims and has the flimsiest scientific backup  – and despite making these claims the company hasn’t seen fit to put the product through a single clinical trial or comparison with other devices. It’s been brilliantly and stylishly marketed and it has persuaded a lot of journalists who should have asked a few more questions to repeat the marketing claims. Eg, how can a device the size of a torch with a rechargeable battery generate enough power to do what it says it does? Or how can any light which is allegedly strong enough to prompt healing deep within the skin be safe to use around the eyes/ shine directly in your eyes without protection?  Avoid.
