How do I get rid of my Turkey Neck?
NOVEMBER IS THANKSGIVING…and Thanksgiving means Turkey. So what should you do for your Turkey neck?
As with any aging process, the degree of “deformity”, real or perceived, should determine the best options for correction. You notice that I stated options as there is no one treatment, device or surgical technique that is appropriate for all conditions or individuals. Elements that may contribute to the laxity and/or wrinkling of your neck include your genetic makeup, environmental sources such as excessive sun exposure and, of course, gravity. Each contributing element may benefit from a variety of effective treatment options.Treatment options, individually or in combination, may include, but are not limited to the following:
- Basic and advanced products and treatments for prepping such as peels, microdermabrasion and IPL treat the upper layers of the skin.
- Laser or radiofrequency treatments for penetration into the deeper layer of the skin.
Open surgical techniques which reposition the skin and underlying fatty and muscular layers.
- Focused ultrasound (Ultherapy) which also affects all layers but in a noninvasive manner.
Each treatment modality has its advantages, disadvantages, and limitations. A great expression that I learned years ago is “no one key fits all locks.” I would be happy to help you find the key (or keys) to address your area(s) of concern.Please visit my website at normanrappaportmd.com for additional information and/or call (713) 790-4500 for a consultation.
