How to Get Rid of Your Turkey Neck

Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing a “turkey neck” staring back at you? From genetics to age to sun damage, there are many things that can result in changes to your neck area.

Regardless of the problem you’re facing, there are a variety of solutions to improve your appearance. Here are some common complaints, as well as advice on how to take immediate action:

1. Double Chin

Even if you’ve been able to keep your double chin in check for the most part, as you age it will become more difficult to do so.

There are many ways to treat this extra bit of fat, including the use of Kybella. As an injectable solution that kills fat cells, this in-office procedure can go a long way in reducing the size or eliminating your double chin. A noninvasive option is CoolSculpting. In fact, there is a CoolSculpting applicator that is specifically designed to reduce the double chin.

2. Loose Skin

As you age, it’s common to notice loose skin forming under your chin. As it worsens, you may become more concerned about finding a solution.

There are many ways to tighten the skin in this part of your body, such as the use of microneedling. Although it may cause a bit of redness, after four to six sessions you’ll come to find that your loose skin is no longer a problem. Other noninvasive options include Ultherapy, which uses micro-focused ultrasound to lift and tighten skin. Radio frequency treatments are comfortable and well tolerated, and also can help improve loose skin.

3. Discoloration

Over time, it’s possible for discoloration of the neck to occur. This is typically the result of sun damage, and is common among people who spend a lot of time outdoors.

This reddish/brown tint is known as Poikiloderma, and can be treated with photofacial treatments. While three to five sessions are required for the best results, don’t be surprised if you notice a big difference after the first couple. Another option would be a chemical peel, which exfoliates the uneven skin tones with fresher, and younger appearing skin.

If you’re dealing with one or more of these issues (or something else), contact the professionals at Pura Vida Medical Spa for additional information and advice.
