WHAT IS IT?
Turkey neck is a condition where the loose skin is seen hanging around the neck. Turkey neck is more likely to make its appearance as people age or in people that have lost a large amount of weight. There are many factors at play when it comes to an ageing neck; our necks do not have fatty tissue, so the skin ismore delicate, less elastic and is susceptible to dryness. This can result inthe lined, saggy and ‘crepey’ look in the neck area.
The neck is also more at risk of UV damage due to fewer melanocytes cells, which are the cells that give our skin pigment and provide protection. Less melanin means that the neck is at risk of becoming mottled and uneven in colour.Luckily there are non-surgical methods to treat this.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Non Surgical Skin Tightening uses radio frequencies to help reduce loose skin hanging around the neck area. The treatment stimulates collagen production which will tighten the skin. It is a 100% non-invasive treatment so no downtime or pain is experienced. Results can usually be seen after the first treatment and will continue to improve over the course of 8 – 10 sessions, which is what is recommended to get the best result.
The Cleopatra Glo
The Cleopatra Glo is a complete facial rejuvenation treatment performed using a micro needling technique by The Alma Beauty Reboost. This treatment will assist in treating an aging neck. Increasing the intensity of treatments can help tighten the skin and stimulate collagen as well as elastin production. This gives the skin a healthier and smoother result. A combination of a pixel pen, micro needling as well as ultrasound is used in the treatment to maximise the penetration of active ingredients.
