Vertical and horizontal neck lines, often referred to as “turkey neck,” become more noticeable with age due to the loss of skin elasticity and collagen. The neck’s skin is more prone to wrinkles being thinner and frequently exposed to sun. These wrinkles can affect one’s appearance and can be a concern as one ages.

Each individual has unique skin conditions and responses to treatments. It’s crucial to consult with a physician to formulate an accurate treatment plan based on your medical history, drug reactions, and responses to previous treatments like lasers. The plan is frequently adjusted to optimize results. Therefore, personal consultation is necessary before deciding on a treatment plan; the following are merely examples for reference.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) non-invasively delivers heat to the SMAS fascia layer, effectively treating mild neck sagging and early wrinkles by stimulating collagen regeneration. However, its effect might be limited for severe wrinkles, where a surgical lift may be necessary to remove excess skin and restore neck firmness.
The platysma muscle is not only located in the neck but also extends upwards to the lower jaw and the corners of the mouth. Managing the platysma can not only reduce the formation of necklines but also alleviate the downward pull on the face. In other words, injecting botulinum toxin in the neck can achieve a lifting effect on the face, making the jawline more defined.
When the wrinkles in the neck progress from dynamic to static, the treatment strategy needs to be adjusted. Ideally, injecting hyaluronic acid directly into the neckline depressions caused by collagen loss is the optimal treatment for neck wrinkles. This method can directly replenish the volume of subcutaneous tissue, and since hyaluronic acid is a part of the skin and has a high capacity to retain water, it can also improve skin texture to some extent.
