What Happens to an Aging Neck?
Skin on the neck ages and deteriorates with sun exposure, genetic tendency, and weight gain. The skin becomes slack and forms unwanted horizontal wrinkles. Fibers of Platysma, the flat superficial muscle under-draping the skin of the neck, tightens and separates into fibrous vertical bands popularly called “turkey bands”.
As bone volume is lost with aging, the Mandible (lower jaw) shortens. This loss of supporting framework causes skin from lower face and under-chin to descend and hang as if it were redundant, causing the “turkey neck” appearance that most people wish to avoid.
Until recently the only option for rejuvenation of the neck and face jowls was through surgical treatments. While surgery is very effective in improving the appearance of the neck when the changes of aging are advanced, the surgical risks and discomfort of recuperative period are not warranted in early stages, when signs of aging are beginning to appear. Fortunately, there are a number of non-surgical options also available for both the early stages of neck aging, as well as for improving skin quality after surgery in more advanced cases.
