Is the skin on your neck starting to sag and wrinkle? “Turkey neck” is a common complaint and just one of the natural consequences of ageing. But for many people, it can be a sore spot for their confidence that prevents them from wearing plunging necklines or their favourite necklaces, not wanting to draw attention to their wrinkly neck.

If you’re having problems with “turkey neck” and are thinking about cosmetic treatments to get back that youthful, smooth skin, then look no further. At ASC, we can help you with various procedures and treatments to treat this common complaint. Here’s what you need to know about “turkey neck” and how to treat it.

What is “Turkey Neck”?

“Turkey neck” is so named because it refers to the loose, wrinkled, or sagging skin on the neck that draws unflattering comparisons to a turkey’s neck. This much complained about skin condition typically affects people between the ages of 40 and 70 and is one of the most prominent signs of ageing.

What Causes “Turkey Neck”?

“Turkey neck” occurs due to the natural ageing process of the skin. As we age, our neck muscles start to weaken, and the skin there loses its elasticity, its ability to stretch and stay tight. Other factors like extreme weight loss, air pollution, smoking and sun exposure can exacerbate the condition.

Collagen and elastin, which are responsible for keeping our skin youthful and firm, start to decline as we age, and this can lead to us developing a wrinkly neck as our bodies slow down their production. While you can attempt to lessen factors within your control, like giving up smoking and wearing appropriate SPF protection, we can do little about our bodies’ natural ageing process. However, there are many effective treatments to tackle the wrinkles and sagging on the neck to bring back that youthful glow.

Treatments for “Turkey Neck”

At ASC, we provide a vast range of surgical and non-surgical treatments specifically tailored to tackle specific conditions. We recommend the following treatments for those concerned about “turkey neck”:

8-Point Facelift

For a quick, effective way to reverse the signs of ageing and restore lost volume, we offer an incredible non-surgical facelift know as our 8-point Facelift. It consists of eight strategic injection points proven to treat key problem areas caused by the natural ageing process.

We start along the cheekbone and under the tear trough with the first three points, then the fourth is along the nasal-labial folds, the fifth under the bottom lip, six and seven along the jawline, then eighth in front of the ear. The results of this facelift are impressive. The cheekbones are lifted, lines are reduced, and the overall face and neck area are given a lift that literally reverses gravity’s pull, tightening all the sagging spots.

With virtually no downtime, you can get instant, volume-boosted, youthful skin without having to go under the knife. Contact us today to learn more about our 8-point Facelift in Belfast, Guernsey and Jersey.

Ultracel HIFU

Take advantage of our new, technologically advanced treatment Ultracel HIFU. Using a combination of high intensity focused ultrasound HIFU and radiofrequency, this revolutionary treatment is a gentle yet powerful way to give your face the ultimate lift with virtually no downtime.

The ultrasound energy stimulates the skin’s deep structural support layers without disturbing the skin on the surface. The result is that the treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen over time to gradually strengthen and tone the skin layer by layer.

Warm pulses of ultrasound energy cause the muscle layer of the skin to contract, while the gentle heat encourages the healthy and natural process of skin rejuvenation, making the skin firmer, brighter, tighter, and more elastic. It is the perfect treatment to tighten and lift the skin on the neck to treat wrinkling and sagging. For Ultracel in Jersey, Guernsey and Belfast, contact us today.
