Is there anything more distressing than a turkey neck? A lot of women consider increasing signs of loose floppy skin in the neck as a harbinger of doom—a death knell of youth. Even entire books have been written about the effects of the turkey neck. In her book, “I Feel Bad About My Neck,” Nora Ephron writes: “Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn’t if it had a neck.” This holiday season, leave the turkey neck for Thanksgiving dinner, and try Ultherapy, the ultimate treatment for the turkey neck.
Origins of the Turkey Neck
A turkey neck is essentially loose skin that starts hanging down from the neck, resembling a turkey’s wattle. The skin on our neck is much thinner than the rest our body, so it’s much more vulnerable to sagging and wrinkling. Once we start to get older, our bodies make less and less collagen, the protein responsible for making our skin elastic. Our skin, especially on our necks, start to wrinkle and sag. A turkey neck can appear as early as your late 30s!
Over the years, there have been countless solutions and so-called treatments for the turkey neck. There are exercises and other ridiculous things that guarantee a cramp. Thankfully, Ultherapy has arrived, finally giving the world a real treatment for the turkey neck.
Using the power of ultrasound energy, Ultherapy reaches deep into the skin to activate long-term collagen production. It’s perfect for the face, chest, and yes—the neck. With Ultherapy, you can get a complete neck lift without ever having to go under the knife. The best part is that the skin tightening all comes from your body’s healing mechanisms—it’s all natural and all from you.
Depending on how well your body responds to the treatment, you should start to see that turkey neck disappear in a few months, and your results will improve for up to 9 months. Even though Ultherapy is nonsurgical, your turkey neck will be better for years.
Each treatment only takes 1-2 hours, and afterwards there’s no downtime or recovery required. You might experience some temporary bruising and swelling, but that’s a small price to pay for the reward of carving up that turkey neck.
