Ways to Get Rid of Your Saggy Skin and Turkey Neck

We have bought the most expensive serums and creams for our face to prevent from sagging skin. Although we spend so much time and money making sure that our skin stays firm and youthful, our neck area is often neglected. The last thing we want is to have a firm and youthful face, but a turkey neck that gives your age away.

Turkey neck refers to the wrinkling and sagging of the skin on our neck to resemble a turkey.  Ageing and years of neglect cause the skin around our neck to lose its elasticity. However, it is not a lost cause. There are still many ways to reverse the situation and improve the appearance of your turkey neck.

 

Extend your skincare to your neck area

The first step to improving your turkey neck is obviously to extend your skincare down to your neck area. This is to keep the skin hydrated and firm. With all our knowledge on ultraviolet (UV) rays and how they are the number one cause of skin ageing, remember to apply a broad-spectrum sunblock not just on your face, but on your neck as well to prevent further deterioration.

Be sure to treat your skin with ingredients that defend against ageing and promote collagen generation. Some ingredients to look out for when making your skincare purchase include peptides and vitamin C for firming and wrinkle care.  Hyaluronic acid and ceramide for hydration, and vitamins A and E for age defence.

 

Neck massage

We are not talking about the neck and shoulder massages you get when you are aching from a long day at work. Just like facial massages, a gentle massage on your neck in an upward and outward motion with your skincare products can improve your skin’s elasticity. You can just use your fingers, or invest in a facial massager to do the job.

 

Ultherapy

Ultherapy neck treatment

Ultherapy is a popular skin firming and skin tightening treatment approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA). It can significantly improve the appearance of turkey neck. It uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen production to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.

This non-invasive treatment takes about half an hour for the neck and about an hour for the face. There is absolutely no downtime for this treatment,  you can resume your normal activities after your Ultherapy treatment.

Optimal results are expected in about three months. Although the result is long-lasting, a yearly refresh is recommended as we are ageing all the time!
 

Lasers

Laser treatments can address a multitude of skin problems, fighting everything from pigmentation, sluggish skin and acne, to large pores and uneven texture. They are equally effective for rejuvenating the face, neck, and even the eye area. But not all lasers are made equal, so it is important to get the right laser treatment for your needs.

One such laser is the PicoSure laser. The PicoSure is a picosecond laser approved by the US FDA that delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in picoseconds (trillionths of a second). It is able to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin dermis to revitalise the skin by activating the cell signalling, to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This is essential for skin healing and firming. And unlike traditional lasers that use photo-thermal heat, the PicoSure converts laser energy into gentle pressure to treat the skin. This translates to almost zero or minimal downtime!

Therefore, fret not if you are concerned about your saggy skin and turkey neck. A good skincare regime can help to firm your skin and prevent it from getting worse. Book an appointment for an Ultherapy, laser, or even facial treatment to tighten and firm your skin. A consultation with a doctor will give you all the answers you need to solve your sagging skin and turkey neck woes.
