The skin on your neck, like the skin on your, face is very susceptible to the signs of aging.
Two of the most common signs of aging are saggy skin and turkey neck. In this article, we are going to show you how to get rid of turkey neck and regain the smooth, tight skin you enjoyed in your younger years.
Saggy skin affects the surface of your neck and can make the skin look crinkly and rough like your elbows. Turkey neck, on the other hand, affects the underlying musculature and elasticity of the skin on your neck and results in the loose, dangling, often wrinkly, folds that look very much like a turkeys wattle.
While both conditions become more common as you age, there are steps you can take to prevent their appearance. This article will focus on the causes of turkey neck and what you can do to get rid of it.
As we age, our bodies lose their natural ability to repair and rejuvenate. This applies to our skin as well. And one of the first components that begins to suffer the ravages of time is collagen. Collagen is a protein found in the middle skin layer (the dermis) that provides structure and support for the tissue on top of it. Over time, collagen production begins to slow, and the existing collagen is more susceptible to breakdown brought on by lack of vitamins and minerals in your diet, the sun’s damaging UV rays, and free radicals that build up in your skin. This breakdown of collagen causes your skin to lose the youthful elasticity it once had.
The nonsurgical Skin Tightening. is an FDA-cleared device that utilizes ultrasound and radiofrequency energy to heat the skin to stimulate your own production of collagen, a key protein involved in maintaining firm, youthful skin. The Skin Tightening Treatment has been shown to lift and tighten loose neck and chin skin, sometimes referred to as a turkey neck, as well as smooth away the lines and wrinkles in other areas of the face and upper chest.
