What is Turkey Neck: Your Guide to Neck Tightening and the Nefertiti Lift

Turkey Neck by Isya Aesthetics in Delhi

The neck – often neglected in skincare routines, shows telltale signs of aging. That laxity and creasing we call “turkey neck” can be a source of frustration. But fret not! Here, we explore effective neck-tightening solutions, including the innovative Nefertiti Lift, to help you achieve a smoother, more youthful neckline.

Understanding Turkey Neck:

Turkey neck, the technical term being platysmal bands, refers to the visible horizontal lines and sagging skin on the neck. This occurs due to several factors:

  • Loss of Collagen and Elasticity: As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, the building blocks that provide structure and elasticity. This leads to laxity and wrinkles.
  • Gravity’s Pull: Over time, gravity takes its toll, causing the skin to sag, particularly in areas like the neck.
  • Sun Damage: Sun exposure significantly contributes to collagen degradation and accelerates the aging process in the skin.

Combating the Turkey Neck:

Thankfully, several options can help combat the “turkey neck” and achieve a firmer, smoother neck:

  • Topical Treatments: While creams and serums alone might not dramatically alter existing wrinkles, using products rich in retinol, peptides, and antioxidants can improve skin texture and prevent further damage.
  • Lasers like CL4D: Non-Ablative Lasers with deeper penetration can help improve the appearance of the turkey neck when done in conjunction with other treatments. It helps with pigment, texture, fine lines and even a mild improvement in laxity. 
  • Microneedling and Microneedle RF: This minimally invasive treatment involves creating tiny punctures in the skin, triggering collagen production and promoting skin tightening. MNRF added radiofrequency to heat the skin, thereby triggering fibroblasts to increase collagen and elastin, improving the tightening effect of microneedling exponentially. 
  • Dermal Fillers: Injections of hyaluronic acid fillers can add volume and plump up sagging skin in the neck area, offering a more youthful appearance.
  • PROFHILO and NUCLEOSKIN:  These injectable treatments focus on bio remodeling, stimulating collagen and elastin production in the skin. This can lead to increased skin thickness and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and sagging, including those associated with turkey neck. At Isya, Dr Kiran offers a special protocol of Profhilo and Nucleoskin, which is designed for even the most demanding skins to treat necks. So, even if you have the hardest skin/neck, you know where to go!
  • INVISITOX (Microbotox Technique): This is a unique technique specifically performed by Dr Kiran at Isya Aesthetics to address turkey neck concerns. INVISITOX uses micro-doses of Botox to target and weaken superficial neck muscles strategically. This weakening effect can cause a subtle stretching of the overlying skin, potentially leading to a smoother, tighter neck appearance.
  • Botox: Strategically placed Botox injections can relax the platysmal bands, reducing their visibility and creating a smoother neckline. This forms the basis of the Nefertiti Lift.

The Nefertiti Lift: A Non-Surgical Approach to Neck Rejuvenation

Named after the legendary Egyptian queen known for her beauty, the Nefertiti Lift is a non-surgical procedure utilizing Botox to address the “turkey neck” and redefine the jawline. Here’s how it works:

  • Targeted Botox Injections: Small amounts of Botox are injected into specific points on the neck and jawline.
  • Relaxing Platysmal Bands: The Botox relaxes the platysmal bands, causing them to appear less prominent and smoothing out horizontal necklines.
  • Lifting Effect: By relaxing these muscles, the Nefertiti Lift can create a subtle lifting effect, sharpening the jawline and creating a more defined neck profile.

Benefits of the Nefertiti Lift:

  • Minimally invasive and non-surgical: No downtime or extensive recovery is needed.
  • Safe and effective: Botox is a well-established treatment with a proven safety record.
  • Subtle yet noticeable results: Refines the jawline, smooths necklines, and promotes a more youthful appearance.
  • Long-lasting effects: Results can typically last 3-4 months, with touch-up appointments available.

Choosing the Right Approach:

The best approach for addressing your turkey neck will depend on the severity of the condition, your individual goals, and your tolerance for risk. Take a consultation with Dr. Kiran, a US-certified Aesthetic Physician, at Isya Aesthetics & determine the most suitable treatment plan for you.
