Even though this year has been challenging due to the stress of COVID-19 and gyms being closed, there’s no reason that you have to settle for a turkey neck this upcoming holiday season. Let’s face it, the only “gobble” I want to talk about is warm turkey on my plate for Thanksgiving dinner not an embarrassing dangling chin from my face.
Don’t try to hide your unwanted turkey neck this holiday season in family photos. Here at Couture Med Spa, we have FDA-approved treatments that can eliminate and decrease the appearance of unwanted turkey necks such as with Kybella, a fractional laser, and our medical grade product: The Age Rewind Neck Cream.
As a nurse practitioner here at Couture Med Spa, I get tons of clients that inquire about Kybella for submental fullness, or their turkey neck. Kybella is an injection that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin also called submental fat or what’s commonly called a “double chin.”
Kybella permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area and overall, improves the chin profile while those cells are cleared away through the natural processes of the body. Diet and exercise alone may not help with submental fullness because it can also be caused by genetics and aging due to increased volume loss. Here at Couture Med Spa, Kybella requires a series of treatments spread 6 weeks apart to get the best results. A complimentary consultation with one of our experienced providers can determine if Kybella is the right treatment for you!
Couture Med Spa also offers an FDA-approved laser treatment using a fractional laser that can further tighten and firm a client’s stubborn and unwanted turkey neck. The fractional laser is a non-ablative laser that uses light pulses delivered down into the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin to cause inflammation and stimulate collagen production.
Every year, a person loses about one percent of collagen. So engaging in collagen production treatments such as the fractional laser will keep a more youthful appearance and tighten the skin where there is volume loss such as in the chin area. A fractional laser treatment is for both men and women who want to reduce the appearance of aging and improve skin texture without wanting a dramatic change or the extended downtime that comes with surgery.
Age Rewind Neck Cream
Couture Med Spa also offers clients medical grade products such as the Age Rewind Neck Cream that can also help tighten and firm an unwanted skin on the neck. The Age Rewind Neck Cream has peptides within the cream that help lift and tighten the skin where there is volume loss. In addition to peptides, the Age Rewind Neck cream also has stem cells within the cream that naturally help replicate our cells to create and boost more collagen to the loose area. Collagen will assist in tightening where there is drooping of the skin to create a firmer appearance. Niacinamide within the neck cream improves skin texture for a more smooth finish.
