Turkey Neck is For the Birds!
Do you have a “turkey neck,” caused by excess skin beneath your chin and jawline that makes you appear older than you wish? Some of us receive this “gift” genetically (check out your parents’ necks for a preview), while some of us develop a sagging neck with age. Lifestyle habits, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, poor diet, and too much sun exposure can also damage underlying collagen, resulting in premature aging in the neck, just as in the face. Dr. Berger has many non-surgical options to treat “turkey neck” at Beverly Hills Rejuvalife Vitality Institute.
Ah, the many wonders of BOTOX® Cosmetic! Used for wrinkle-erasing and reducing excessive sweating, migraines and facial spasms, BOTOX® Cosmetic can also treat turkey neck! Micro injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic lift and tighten the muscles in the jowl and neck area to eliminate sagging. Treatment time is around 30 minutes, with improvement within a week. Results last 3-4 months for most of our Beverly Hills BOTOX® Cosmetic patients. Notice the improvement both in the patient’s after photo, left, in the neck and in the improved definition of the jawline.
Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved device that uses ultrasonic waves to lift and tighten the skin. It works wonders for the chin, lower face and jowls. Collagen production slows down as we age. Ultherapy® prompts collagen production by affecting the deepest layers of the skin, without discomfort or downtime. Results begin to appear within 2-3 months and most of our Beverly Hills Ultherapy® patients need just one treatment. Because you will continue to age, touch-ups every year will help keep turkey neck at bay!
Dr. Berger’s famous Knifeless Facelift is a long-term solution to facial aging, particularly double chin and turkey neck. Minimally invasive, the Beverly Hills Knifeless facelift leaves virtually no scars, has an extremely short downtime and doesn’t require general anesthesia. Through the use of advanced laser technology, the PrecisionTX Laser treats the lower face, double chin and turkey neck to tighten skin and tissues, ultimately increasing production of your own collagen, resulting in a smoother neck and a more defined jawline. You’ll have immediate results, followed by increased improvement over the subsequent three to six months, as collagen production is boosted. In this patient’s before/after photos, you can see the improvement beneath the chin and the jawline.
Dermalift uses radio frequency waves to tighten and smooth sagging skin to improve definition in the jawline and neck. Radio frequency is safe and non-invasive. Via a handpiece, which is slowly rotated over the targeted area(s), the dermis is heated to between 86 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit, without burning the skin’s surface. Most patients find this treatment fairly comfortable, almost like a hot rock treatment.
Dermalift is a single treatment, is non-invasive, clinically proven and requires minimal downtime to achieve real change. As collagen production increases, tightening continues over a three to six month period. In general, a course of treatments is required for maximum results with a maintenance treatment recommended about every six months.
