What Causes Turkey Neck?

You may develop turkey neck as the result of your neck muscles weakening and your skin losing its collagen. This reduces your skin’s elasticity and ability to remain firm as you age. Another culprit is a group of thin muscles in the neck called the platysma bands. These become more visible as we lose muscle strength in the neck.

Your lifestyle choices may also have an effect. If you have spent a lot of time in the sun, if you smoke or drink alcohol, or if you have repeatedly gained and lost large amounts of weight over time – these can alter your aging pattern and may make you more prone to more wrinkles and loose skin on the neck.
