Don’t Be the Turkey This Fall

As we age, our skin undergoes some changes that can be quite frustrating. One of the most common complaints among older people is the appearance of loose, sagging skin around the neck, which is often referred to as a “turkey neck.” As your family gathers this fall, you want the attention to be on the beautiful holiday turkey you prepare, not your turkey neck. Why does this phenomenon occur and is there anything you can do to prevent it?

How a Turkey Neck Develops

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and is less able to bounce back after being stretched, which can lead to sagging. Additionally, the muscles in our neck can weaken over time, which can also contribute to a sagging appearance. Another factor that can contribute to a turkey neck is weight gain. When we gain weight, our skin stretches to accommodate the extra fat. However, when we lose weight, the skin may not be able to bounce back as well, leading to sagging. Also, genetics can play a role in the development of a turkey neck. Some people may simply be more prone to sagging skin as they age due to their genetic makeup. Other factors that can contribute to turkey-like neck skin are excessive sun exposure, dehydration, poor diet and skin health and smoking.

Preventing Turkey Neck

Leave the turkey on the table this year and take steps to prevent your neck skin from becoming an embarrassment. Here are some recommendations from the talented aestheticians at the ParsaMD Med Spa in Beverly Hills, CA.
  • Take care of your health – a good diet and exercise are essential for maintaining a healthy weight to prevent stretching your skin.
  • Avoid the sun – staying out of the sun as much as possible will prevent damaging UVA and UVB rays from impacting your skin, giving it that dry and wrinkled appearance.
  • Stop smoking – quitting smoking is good for every part of your body, including your skin.
  • Stay hydrated – your body requires an adequate amount of moisture to function properly, and your skin does, too. Drink the recommended amount of water each day.
