Avoiding The Dreaded "Turkey Neck"?

For decades, the only fix to the dreaded "turkey neck" was a wardrobe full of unsightly turtlenecks or a surgical facelift. In today's world, several effective treatments are available that will improve your neck's appearance and we are here to tell you all about them!

Treatment will consist of smoothing out fine lines with fillers to radiofrequency micro-needling. Finding the right service to achieve your desired results can be overwhelming but at RJ Clinical we will walk you through every step of the way.

What causes neck wrinkles and sagging?

Aside from the normal aging process, which causes the loss of collagen that keeps skin appearing young and vibrant, sun exposure is another major cause of neck wrinkling and sagging. When you forget to apply sunscreen to the neck, you expose the thin layers of your skin to the sun’s harmful rays causing premature aging.

What can you do to prevent wrinkles in your neck?

Apart from reversing the aging process, which we all wish was possible, it's important to use sunscreen whenever you go outside. Use the same products on your neck as you do on your face, products such as retinol and retinoids.

Be more aware of how you utilize your neck when it comes to activities that can generate more sagging and wrinkles. Are you looking down when you're looking at your phone or computer screen? According to experts, this type of continual motion can produce wrinkles and drooping in the neck over time. Instead, try keeping devices at eye level.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Improving your neck's appearance while avoiding surgical options has become a popular option. Here are a few examples -

PDO Threadlift | PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, dissolvable polydioxanone threads into the subcutaneous layer of the skin.

Dermal Fillers | Dermal filler injections are becoming more and more popular as a means to plump and firm the skin. Fillers can be injected into the jowl area to reduce the appearance of age and skin drooping. At your visit, we can describe the many types of fillers available, as well as their benefits and drawbacks. Dermal fillers, regardless of the type used, seek to revitalize your neck and give it a more youthful appearance.

Botox | Botox injections are another alternative for people who want to get rid of their sagging jowls. These injections can be used to raise the droopiness of the mouth and cheeks by properly placing them along the jawline. Botox can be combined with other treatments to achieve the best results.

Agnes RF | Agnes RF is a radiofrequency micro-needling device that utilizes RF energy through a precision single and triple-needle system to remove fat pockets from your face, jaw, neck, or any other areas of the body. It allows for safe and comfortable, yet deep penetration of the skin to deliver heat to targeted areas. The selective heating and coagulation induce natural bodily reactions, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. This device is anatomically designed to target specific facial regions especially small, difficult areas that previous procedures may miss. Every needle is different in length, shape, and insulation, ensuring that treatments are efficiently tailored to treat the areas of concern. Patients see improvement in eye bags, fatty jowls, neck and chin, skin tightening, fine lines, acne, and pore size.
