With age and sun damage, the thin skin of the neck can often be show signs of ageing sooner than other parts of the body. The most common signs of an ageing neck include crepey and sagging skin and deep horizontal neck lines. These changes are mainly attributed to the loss of elastin and collagen fibres in the skin from ageing and cumulative sun exposure. In the ageing neck, vertical platysmal muscle bands (also known as “turkey neck” ) commonly develops. This is thought to be due to hyperactivity of the platysmal muscles. The increased activity of the platysmal muscle has a downward pulling effect contributing to the sagginess of the neck and jawline.
