4 Tips to Trim Away Your “Turkey Neck”
Everyone enjoys eating turkey at Thanksgiving—but nobody wants to be compared to one. “Turkey neck” is the casual term given to the wrinkled, sagging skin that can form beneath the chin and along the neck. This issue is commonly caused by aging and environmental damage. As we grow older, fat deposits can collect under facial skin, causing it to lose elasticity.
But there’s good news: you can fix turkey neck without plastic surgery. Nonsurgical procedures such as SculpSure® and KYBELLA® are popular choices at our Baton Rouge practice. By using a few of these trusted treatments, you can tone your profile, age more gracefully, and feel confident at the Thanksgiving table.
SculpSure is an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that uses lasers to sculpt the flanks, abdomen, chin, and more. This state-of-the-art technology harnesses the power of light to target stubborn fat deposits that exercise and diet alone can’t fix.
SculpSure can be used on multiple areas of the body in a single treatment, so you can slim down your neck while also contouring other problem areas. There is no downtime required after the procedure, and you can return to work or home immediately. We typically recommend 2-3 treatments for optimal results.
KYBELLA is often our go-to treatment for directly targeting a double chin. Deoxycholic acid is injected under the chin to help destroy fat cells and slim your neck’s silhouette.
While a double chin can be caused by weight gain or genetics, that doesn’t mean you can’t fight back. Patients enjoy seeing noticeable results after only three 20-minute treatments.
Microneedling can help transform your face—and microneedling with specialized technology is even better. Our practice is proud to offer Genius™ high-intensity focused radiofrequency (RF) microneedling for patients who wish to improve their skin.
By using tiny needles to make careful micro-injuries, this treatment can stimulate the skin’s healing process and encourage collagen production. It can be used to soften wrinkles, improve skin texture, and firm loose skin, all in one simple procedure.
BOTOX is a fan favorite for a reason. This trusted injectable treatment is a great option for a variety of aging issues.
While commonly used to fade wrinkles, BOTOX can also be used to treat “turkey neck” by injecting a few units into the neck’s platysmal bands. This softens the appearance of the neck and makes your profile look smooth and youthful. The results are natural-looking and involve little to no downtime.
If you’re concerned about the appearance of your turkey neck, give yourself the gift of confidence this holiday season. These treatments and more can help smooth and tone your neck for a more youthful, confidence-inspiring appearance.
