Let’s take a quick look at a few women widely considered to have aged gracefully: Audrey Hepburn in her UNICEF years, Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep. What do they have in common? A believably lined face, a sharp jawline, and a swanlike neck.


“Turkey neck” is a rather unglamorous term for wrinkled, sagging skin on the neck, which is a common side effect of aging. It occurs when your neck muscles begin weakening and your skin loses its elasticity, or ability to stretch and stay tight.

Sooner or later, most of us will start obsessing about our neck.

The late Nora Ephron, writer behind “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless In Seattle”, wrote a book titled “I Feel Bad About My Neck”. Ephron is ashamed of her neck. True enough, despite makeup, collagen injections and Botox, the feature that most reliably betrays a woman’s age these days is her neck: “You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn’t have to if it had a neck.” While many women resort to surgical solutions, Ephron wrote that she’s apprehensive of invasive solutions because she doesn’t want to confront in the mirror “a stranger who looks suspiciously like a drum pad”.

So if you’re feeling a bit self conscious about your neck, you’re in good company. And even better, there are things you can do at home to tighten that area specifically.

Keep in mind that crinkly skin in your is caused primarily by sun damage leading to collagen loss. Most women regularly use SPF sunscreen on their face, but conveniently forget to use it on their neck. So if you’re one of those women, it’s time to start!

But if the damage is already apparent, NEWA Skin Tightening System is a great tool to build back the collagen you’ve lost. NEWA delivers focused RF energy deep into the dermis, stimulating the skin to naturally start producing new collagen – so you can restore your skin’s elasticity and tighten the skin in your neck. Just keep in mind that results are not instantaneous, and the transformation will be gradual. Basically, the more treatments you give yourself, the more collagen and elastin your body will learn to produce. To maximize your results – try to stick to the treatment protocol: 3-5 treatments per week for the first month, and then 2-3 treatments to maintain your results.

Tip: It’s encouraging to take a picture of your neck before and after 30 days to see the difference.
