Treatments for Turkey Neck
Turkey Neck. Whoever invented that name! Sounds rather… unglamorous. A Turkey neck is loose sagging skin on the front of the neck. (I know this doesn’t sound glamorous either!) Neck skin is very stretchy and delicate, and we don’t have bones on the front of our neck, just skin, tendons, and muscles. That’s why the neck is more vulnerable to creases and lines. It is a very common concern. So, what are the best Treatments for Turkey Neck?
How about neck exercise or cream?
When we google or YouTube search, there are various methods of neck exercise and moisturisers that claim to improve a turkey neck. The truth is that IT IS NOT THAT SIMPLE! Saggy skin occurs when our body’s production of collagen and elastin declines. These are vital ingredients for a firm and tight skin. For example, during the first five years of menopause, we lose about 30% of our collagen. By the time we reach 65, we lose around 40% of our collagen.
This means that no matter how much neck exercise you do or what expensive neck cream you apply if you don’t produce more collagen and elastin in your skin, you won’t get a desirable outcome! Exercise or cream may help with prevention.
What can I do for my Turkey neck?
There are surgical procedures such as Keyhole neck lift, Elevate neck lift and Facetite. Today I want to talk about non-surgical aesthetic procedures, which have a lot less downtime, and reduced risks and side effects.
RF Microneedling combines both Radiofrequency and Microneedling. Radiofrequency is an excellent way to tighten the skin, while Microneedling smooths your skin and improves skin texture. Like most non-surgical treatments, you will need multiple sessions and require maintenance treatments.
HIFU uses focused ultrasound to tighten the SMAS layer of the skin and stimulate collagen production in the Dermis, the middle layer of the skin. The SMAS layer is the area that surgeons cut for facelifts.
Which treatment is better for me?
To get the best results, try both treatments. Our Package Plans are ideal for you to try. RF Microneedling and HIFU are one of the best non-surgical treatments to lift, firm and tighten neck skin. The results are natural and show gradually over 2-3 months following treatment. During this time, old collagen structures are replaced by new strong collagen.
Both treatments have virtually no downtime, which is perfect for people with a busy lifestyle.
