How to Avoid Turkey Neck

How to Avoid Turkey Neck

Are you taking great care of your face but tend to neglect your neck? If we don't take preventative steps early on, the neck muscles weaken as we age and our skin loses its elasticity, or ability to stretch and stay tight.

The effects of neck neglect can sneak up on us with a line here, some droop there, and then full out crepey skin that resembles a turkey's neck. This is not a glamorous look but you can take steps to avoid it - or minimize it - or get rid of it altogether. 

Before you resign to wearing turtle necks and scarves all year long, you have some options to improve the appearance of your neck - let's explore them.

The first step to prevention and to keep existing neglect from getting worse is to use sunscreen without fail on the neck and décolletage. The UV rays from the sun break down collagen in the skin contributing to loss of elasticity, not to mention premature brown spots and hyperpigmentation.

Continue the use of your face serums, and moisturizers onto the neck. Look for products with retinol (Sleep On It), peptides (Triple C+Gold), hyaluronic acid (NeoGenesis Booster), and PLLA (CaviPLLA) will plump and hydrate skin helping to restore collagen and elastin.  

And, there is always the option for using neurotoxins [like Botox] to soften neck banding, and small particle hyaluronic fillers can be used for fine lines and wrinkles in order to soften and rejuvenate the neck.

Lasers and radiofrequency are a less invasive option. Fractionated CO2 lasers work well to help make the neck look less wrinkled and tighter. This should be done by a qualified professional and some acneic skin or darker skins may not fair well. 

Devices like the Time Master Pro and the Clareblend Mini Microcurrent help tighten the skin and make it look more youthful with continued use.

The most important factor to taking advantage of these tips is a commitment to be consistent with the products and devices you choose to use. Even if you choose an invasive option, you will have to put a neck care regimen into your skincare routine to maintain any results or you'll find yourself back where you started. Aging never stops and neither does our work to age gracefully.

Start today by giving your neck the TLC it needs and the TLC you deserve!
