Often referred to as “turkey neck,” wrinkled, crepey and sagging skin on the neck and jawline are a common side effect of aging. Neck sagging occurs when the collagen within the skin breakdown and production declines, resulting in a loss of skin elasticity. Additionally, the neck muscles grow weaker and lose their ability to stretch and hold the skin taut. Once it has occurred, neck sagging is difficult to reverse without professional treatments, and there are no at-home options that are proven to be effective in tightening skin on the neck and jawline.
There are many facial and neck exercises that claim to help tighten loose skin on the neck by strengthening the muscles and increasing blood circulation, however, these cannot offer dramatic or permanent results. But, while it may seem impossible to tighten loose skin on the neck, there are many non-surgical options that are quick and effective at treating neck sagging. Skin tightening treatments that use ultrasound therapy, laser therapy and microneedling are just a few of the professional aesthetic treatments that offer effective, permanent results in skin tightening. These procedures are completely safe, non-invasive and require minimal to no downtime, making them the ideal option for patients who are not ready to commit to surgery.
