Tame Your Turkey Neck: The Best Ways to Care for Your Neck and Chest!
Sagging and increased laxity on the jawline and neck (often referred to as “turkey neck”) can present before other signs of aging show up. It is important to know the best ways to care for your neck and chest, in order to prevent or treat the dreaded “turkey neck”.
1 | Sunscreen To Prevent, Retinoids To Repair: Many people remember to apply sunscreen to their faces, but neglect to apply it regularly to their neck and chest. The result is collagen breakdown (which leads to sagging skin) and an increase in melanin cells (the pigment forming cells of the skin). Professional strength retinoids stimulate the production of healthy collagen and elastin, which improve the quality of the skin and decrease the appearance of fine lines. Skin with healthy collagen and elastin is tauter, smoother, and brighter than sun damaged skin.
2 | Chemical Peels Before The Holidays: Chemical peels can deliver stronger concentrations of anti-aging ingredients. As the holiday season approaches, now is the time to consider having a chemical peel. Chemical peels can be used to smooth out fine lines, decrease the appearance of dark spots from the sun, and improve the elasticity of the skin.
3 | Laser Resurfacing: In order to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, as well as even out uneven pigmentation of the skin, resurfacing lasers can be used to stimulate the production of healthy skin cells on the neck and chest.
4 | Radiofrequency: A ThermiTight treatment, which delivers radiofrequency energy just below the skin, stimulates significant collagen turnover and melts away fat pockets. The result is tighter skin on the neck and improved contouring along the jawline.
5 | Kybella: Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment that reduces fat along the chin and jawline (double chin). You can return to work and normal activities immediately as there is typically no downtime after treatment and many people see results in two to four treatments. Kybella is an excellent choice to sculpt your ideal profile and look slimmer without the need for surgery.
6 | Face Lift / Neck Lift: Think of your neck as a skirt that needs hemming. You can iron the skirt (meaning treat it with various lasers, which can help smooth the skin) and reinforce the fabric of the skirt (meaning apply creams like retinoids that will encourage production of collagen and elastin), but unless you hem the skirt, you won’t lose the excess fabric. Face Lifts and/or Neck Lifts achieve beautiful, youthful, and natural results for the appropriate candidate.
