As we age, our skin becomes less firm and gravity takes its toll, causing wrinkles and sagging skin. Ageing of the neck is often described as a “turkey neck” because of the saggy appearance of the skin. The skin on the neck can also become creased and wrinkled.
What causes an ageing neck?
An ageing neck is caused when the skin on the neck becomes lose and saggy as a result of the ageing process. The more fragile the neck skin, the more prone it is to ageing faster.
Who can get an ageing neck?
Both men and women will see ageing on the skin of the neck but the “turkey neck” is more associated with women, and neck ageing appears to be more of a concern for women over 40.
