Do you suffer from a 'turkey neck?'

WHAT CAUSES TURKEY NECK?

The skin on your neck is very susceptible to the signs of aging, much like the skin on your face. Sagging skin affects the surface of your neck and can make the skin look wrinkled and rough like the appearance of the skin on your elbows. Turkey neck, on the other hand, affects the underlying musculature and elasticity of the skin on your neck, resulting in loose, dangling folds of skin that look very much like a turkey’s wattle.


Your skin has an abundance of collagen and elastin. These two proteins, collagen gives skin its structure and elastin allows your skin to stretch as you move. As you age, your body loses its natural ability to repair and rejuvenate. This applies to our skin as well and one of the first components that begin to suffer the hands of time is collagen.


If your neck is beginning to droop or sag it is nearly impossible to correct with diet and exercise, and can add years to a person's appearance. Today, with so many lotions, creams, serums and cosmetic procedures on the market, it is difficult to know what actually helps combat a 'turkey neck' and gives you lasting results.


Cosmetic surgery is always an option, but with viable solutions with little to no downtime with health benefits that actually stimulate new collagen and elastin, there is no need to go under the knife!


Cosmetic surgery is an expensive band aid to the problem you are experiencing. Sure, it pulls the skin tight and after the pain and bruising subsides, it is time to have your sutures removed. What about the damaged cells, collagen or elastin fibers? Does surgery renew them? Unfortunately, it does not!
