Is there really anything on the market that will help with this turkey neck or will it require surgery?

Have you looked into face brushing? Apparently people have very good results...

If the turkey neck is really that bad (with sagging too), I don't think anything can fix it except surgery... But if it is not that bad (no sagging), I think you can try microcurrent treatments or perhaps some neck exercises....just my 2-cents thought...

IPL photorejuvination will help with sun damage. Microcurrent will help with to tighten it but if you have the money I would go for something like Ulthera which is non invasive but has very good results.

For many people this is a genetic thing. If your platysma muscle is separated into two separate muscles (and for many people this is so, and there is nothing they can do to change this in terms of exercise, etc.) there is not an effective muscular sling in the neck area and any extra flesh will hang. This is one area where surgery really works for those who need it. It depends on the degree of turkey neck and the degree of discomfort with said neck. Anatomy differs in this area from person to person quite a bit, and it might be useful to get a professional opinion as to what is the cause of the problem.

On the plus side, you may as well combine it with any other lower face surgeries is you need them.

Look into something like UltraLift, which uses ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen in your deep tissue. Its completely non-invasive and has great results over time (2+ years), so it's slow but works.

You could get surgery, but the scars for surgery like that are pretty intense from what I hear so not sure if you're willing to have that.

Laser treatments, neck firming creams & exercise might help, but my suggestion if it is really saggy & if you can afford it, is to consult a good plastic surgeon. I use skin brushing with a natural bristle brush to help lymphatic flow. I do it all over my body before a shower, always brushing towards my heart. On the neck you would brush downward, not upward because the lymph system has one-way valves. I started doing this as part of a recovery plan after lymph node removal, not to to rejuvenate my neck. But, it is something to try that is easily done at home without much cost.

Surgery skills vary, but a competant surgeon would leave almost invisible scars behind the ears, possibly into the hair and there might be one under the chin where it is not visible. These days we can also erase scars with dermal needling and laser if they are a bother.

This is a somewhat extreme solution for those with a major problem - for lesser degrees, Ulthera may be very effective; certainly the reviews are much better than those for the older thermage treatments.

Would Stemutone work on the neck. I know it's supposed to just be for the body.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, face exercises!

You can see the change in these people:

http://www.carolynsfacialfitness.com/andrea

http://www.carolynsfacialfitness.com/tanya

http://www.carolynsfacialfitness.com/shanti

http://www.flexeffect.com/DeniBA.htm

http://www.flexeffect.com/Lalabeforeafter.htm

Remember those^^ changes happened over a short time. Face exercises can continue to improve your neck because if you look at Carolyn's face at 65 (15 years since she started face exercises), her results her cumulative and her neck looks better than many women younger than her. The following link is to an article on aging necks and within the article is a link to an exercise/massage technique that is part of her program that helps in firming the neck. I highly recommend it (You'll see her neck at 65 in that video): http://www.carolynsfacialfitness.com/facial-exercise-routine-for-firming-the-neck-and-double-chin
