These changes are especially visible in the neck with complex anatomical changes, e.g. continuous platysmal traction with head bending movement, soft tissue and muscle laxity forming some of the distinctive characteristics of an ageing “turkey neck” and “double chin.” 

Several treatment devices, both minimally invasive and non-invasive methods, are available in the market for treatment.
