What Causes the Turkey Neck?

With age, the skin on the neck deteriorates, and the turkey neck, double chin and saggy neck changes develop. The turkey neck evolves from a combination of decreased skin elasticity and neck muscle weakness. Muscle weakness allows the neck fat pads to protrude, resulting in a double chin and turkey neck.  Non-surgical neck lifts, neck tightening,  Lipodissolve injections and prescription retinoid treatments are all options for treating your turkey neck.

Neck Tightening Treatment Overview

  • A neck thread lift, HIFU neck tightening, or surgical neck lift can treat Turkey neck or saggy neck skin.
  • Neck PDO threads, dermal fillers, and RF neck tightening can treat neck lines and wrinkles.
  • Mono PDO threads or Lipodissolve fat dissolving injections can treat double chins.

Neck thread lifts are non-surgical neck lifts that provide excellent and natural lifting. The most common neck thread lifts are with mono PDO threads, barbed PDO neck threads, or PDO double screw threads, and the approaches for each are different. In addition, the Nefertiti Lift is included; Although at the same time, it primarily tightens the jawline, it is still considered a non-surgical neck lift and has a relaxing effect to help smooth neck lines. It is recommended that all clinic treatments begin with collagen-stimulating retinoid creams and niacinamide, as improving the texture and quality of your skin aids the action of all modalities.

Neck Thread Lift

PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lifts are a procedure that uses dissolvable sutures to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin. The method requires little recovery time, and you can resume your normal activities immediately. However, with all modalities of PDO threads, there is a high risk of bruising.

PDO threads are a type of dissolvable suture that has been used in surgeries since the 1980s. After about six months, the thread degrades in your body, stimulating fibroblasts to produce more collagen and providing structure and elasticity to your skin.

There are three types of PDO threads: barbed, mono, and screw threads. They are all beneficial for non-surgical neck treatments, but they are used for different symptoms because they act and are applied differently.

Barbed PDO Neck Thread Lift

Barbed PDO threads, as the name implies, have barbs that hook into your skin like tiny fishhooks to support and lift the skin on your neck.

  • The barbed threads are inserted beneath the skin, anchored, and pulled up to create a neck lift.
  • These dissolvable threads then provide a secondary neck tightening effect as they dissolve, stimulating collagen and elastin in the skin, improving the texture of neck skin, lessening the appearance of neck wrinkles, and, most importantly, lessening the formation of saggy neck skin.
  • A barbed thread, such as the MINT threads, is ideal for a non-surgical neck lift.

Mono PDO Threads for Neck Tightening and Chin Fat

PDO neck threads can help with neck tightening and wrinkle reduction and treat submental fat and tightening. PDO monofilament threads are smooth, floating threads that can stimulate collagen production depending on the depth of placement to help rejuvenate and tighten neck skin. A second novel application is that when placed deeper in the fat layer, they reduce fat in the chin area, reducing the appearance of a turkey neck. This is only effective for small amounts of chin fat; more significant amounts require Lipodissolve fat dissolving and cryolipolysis with Clatuu. Large deposits will necessitate neck lift surgery or liposuction.

Screw threads

Screw or double screw PDO threads are constructed from two intertwined or twisted threads. When the screw is placed under the skin and released, it untwists. They are used to restore volume to sunken areas of your skin, making them particularly useful when inserted along neck lace lines, where they plump out the lines and stimulate collagen production. Double screw threads are frequently combined with a mono thread neck lift.

Nefertiti Neck Lift

The Nefertiti lift is a minimally invasive treatment using anti-wrinkle injections. The Nefertiti lift is primarily a jawline lift; however, a degree of a neck lift is observed. It helps reduce the appearance of necklace lines and prevents early sagging. A Nefertiti Lift involves anti-wrinkle injections into the neck and jaw muscles to reduce neck muscle activity, allowing antagonist muscles of the face to pull up and create a more defined neck and jawline. The muscle-relaxing action also aids in the reduction of neck wrinkles and lines. Because the effectiveness of the Nefertiti neck lift is dependent on the pull strength of the antagonist’s muscles, client selection is essential.

Fat Dissolving Injections for Turkey Neck

Lipodissolve is an injectable cosmetic treatment that targets stubborn fat cells under the chin. Lipodissolve is injected into the fat beneath your chin, causing the fat cells to rupture. Following the application of numbing cream, multiple injections are placed under your chin. Fat is released from cells and then eliminated from the body via natural body systems. Swelling occurs at first, but the neck skin tightens as the localised fat decreases. Your turkey neck will be significantly reduced after two to six Lipodissolve treatments.

RF and HIFU Neck Tightening

Non-surgical Neck Tightening with HIFU Neck Lift

HIFU is an abbreviation for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, a non-invasive anti-aging procedure used for non-surgical skin lifting. HIFU uses ultrasound beams to penetrate the skin and cause controlled damage, reduce fat, tighten skin, and stimulate new collagen production, all of which firm the neck’s skin. This treatment lasts six months to a year and must be repeated.

RF Neck Tightening

RF – Radiofrequency microneedling is an excellent treatment for improving skin texture changes like neck creases. RF microneedling works by delivering radio-frequency energy to the dermal layers of the skin, causing controlled damage and activating your skin’s natural collagen-producing mechanism. Neck tightening with RF and HIFU produces modest results and is best used with PDO neck threads or Lipodissolve.

Neck Firming for Wrinkles & Lines

Neck Firming for Wrinkles & Lines

Neck wrinkles & lines develop over time from exposure to sun and muscle movement. The treatment for neck wrinkles and lines depends on the type. The following provides a brief overview of some of the non-surgical neck lift treatments available.

As we get less young, the skin’s texture on the neck becomes more crepey or loose. This can be exacerbated by sun damage.

Crepey Neck Wrinkle Treatment

  • Vitamin A creams and antioxidants
  • RF microneedling, HIFU neck tightening
  • A fractional CO2 laser may also have a place.
  • PDO mono neck threads


So-called because they look like necklaces. They can occur in younger people and are caused by neck movement. Neck-line treatment can involve combinations of treatments.

Necklace Line Treatment

  • Wrinkle relaxing treatments help smooth necklace lines.
  • Fractionated rf uses radiofrequency for the treatment of neck-lines treatment.
  • PDO double screw effective to plump out neck lines
  • Vitamin A Creams & Antioxidants improve overall neck skin texture.


As some people get less young, they notice vertical bands that stand out on their necks. These are called platysmal bands and once again are caused by muscle movement and loss of fat. But, furthermore, these develop naturally over time.

  • Best Treated with wrinkle relaxing treatments, called Nefertiti lift.

Neck-line treatment with wrinkle relaxing treatments improves the vertical line appearance and lifts around the jawline area.

Surgical Neck Lift

If you have advanced neck skin sagging, sun damage or excessive double chin fat, non-surgical methods will not help, and you may need to consider a surgical neck lift or liposuction. Unfortunately, our Doctors do not provide surgical neck lifts, but we can provide a referral if required.

Preventing Saggy Neck Skin: Remember your Sunscreen

When considering neck wrinkle treatment, always remember preventing further damage is essential. The skin on the neck and decolletage often gets more sun than your face. Women usually wear makeup or put sunscreen on their faces but neglect these two areas. The skin on the neck is also thinner than the face and more susceptible. Wear sunscreen daily on your decolletage and neck to prevent neck lines and changes to skin elasticity when causing saggy neck skin. You can also extend your vitamin A and other anti-aging active ingredients onto your neck, neck, and even hands.

Treatment that Compliment Neck Tightening.

IPL & Laser do not help with neck wrinkles & lines. However, these are good for skin pigmentation or redness that occur on your neck. Peels similarly do not help with neck lines. However, peels can be used to treat pigmentation changes.
