If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your neck, you’re not alone. Many people feel their neck lacks definition or is too saggy. This problem is frequently referred to as “turkey neck” and can be the result of various conditions, such as genetics, being overweight and/or age. Fortunately, the appearance of your neck can be improved with laser skin treatment, which helps create more definition of the jaw angle and a firmer neck.
What Causes a Turkey Neck?
Your neck consists of muscle, fat and skin and like the other muscles in your body, they weaken with lack of use and/or age. Next to the skin on your eyelids, the skin on your neck is the thinnest skin on your body, so when the muscles aren’t supported, they begin to sag and give you a turkey neck. Another common problem with sagging skin on the neck is due to a lack of elasticity, which is caused by the decrease of elastin that occurs as you age.
How to Get a Firm Neck
You can attempt to firm sagging skin on your neck with exercise and/or cosmetic ointments and lotions; however, neither of these will completely fix the problem. The problem with lotions and ointments is that many people typically apply them to their face, but forget to do their neck and even then there is no guarantee that the product will work. Exercises may help to an extent, but they must be done daily for the rest of your life and even then, they will not completely tighten the skin. The best solution for a firm neck, without having surgery is with a simple procedure known as laser skin resurfacing.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
A laser skin treatment procedure, such as Genesis or Pearl Laser Treatments, is designed to tone and tighten your neck without surgery. Laser skin resurfacing is a virtually painless procedure that reduces sagging skin and creates a firmer neck with the use of lasers. The procedure is minimally invasive and done on an outpatient basis. You will have noticeable improvements with the texture, tone and firmness of your neck in under an hour. A laser skin treatment works by safely heating the fat and skin with a laser. The heat helps to tighten the skin and stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin. The outer layer of the skin is resurfaced with a laser, which creates maximum tissue tightening, resulting in a tighter, firmer and younger looking neck.
In most situations the results of laser skin resurfacing or laser neck lift are immediately noticeable and the pain is minimal. For a free consultation to see if you qualify for Laser Skin Treatment, contact Metro MediSpa today.
