Let’s talk turkey — not the bird, but rather the loose skin on your neck that resembles a turkey’s wattle, those wrinkled folds of skin that hang under its beak. “Turkey neck” comes with aging, weight fluctuations and sun exposure, three things that are hard to avoid over the years.

How Does a “Turkey Neck” Develop?

“Turkey neck” is basically loose neck skin and muscles. It can be hereditary, but is often due to aging, UV damage or weight loss. The neck’s skin and muscles become loose once we reach age 40. The skin becomes less able to shrink with weight loss, and weakened muscles can create a “banded” appearance. “Turkey Neck” happens when the neck muscles begin to weaken and the skin loses elasticity, with the loose skin becoming droopy and wrinkled.

How Can I Treat Turkey Neck?

OPUS PLASMA for Turkey Neck!

The revolutionary Opus Plasma treatment available at Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute uses Radiofrequency + Micro Plasma energy to remove a small fraction of the skin’s surface, stimulating the surrounding skin to repair itself and build new collagen. Unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing treatments, Opus Plasma’s proprietary plasma resurfacing technology precisely controls the energy-to-tissue contact time, thus minimizing unwanted inflammation that leads to longer downtime.
