Do you suffer from a 'turkey neck?'


The skin on your neck is very susceptible to the signs of aging, much like the skin on your face. Sagging skin affects the surface of your neck and can make the skin look wrinkled and rough like the appearance of the skin on your elbows. Turkey neck, on the other hand, affects the underlying musculature and elasticity of the skin on your neck, resulting in loose, dangling folds of skin that look very much like a turkey’s wattle.

Your skin has an abundance of collagen and elastin. These two proteins, collagen gives skin its structure and elastin allows your skin to stretch as you move. As you age, your body loses its natural ability to repair and rejuvenate. This applies to our skin as well and one of the first components that begin to suffer the hands of time is collagen.

If your neck is beginning to droop or sag it is nearly impossible to correct with diet and exercise, and can add years to a person's appearance. Today, with so many lotions, creams, serums and cosmetic procedures on the market, it is difficult to know what actually helps combat a 'turkey neck' and gives you lasting results.

Cosmetic surgery is always an option, but with viable solutions with little to no downtime with health benefits that actually stimulate new collagen and elastin, there is no need to go under the knife!

Cosmetic surgery is an expensive band aid to the problem you are experiencing. Sure, it pulls the skin tight and after the pain and bruising subsides, it is time to have your sutures removed. What about the damaged cells, collagen or elastin fibers? Does surgery renew them? Unfortunately, it does not!

The good news is... Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared technology that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. The fat pocket underneath your chin is the most weight-loss resistant area on the entire body. The machine has multiple attachments used to allow for superficial, medium, and deep penetration.The results are AMAZING for 'turkey necks!'

WHAT IS Ultherapy®? (Watch the short video below)

Now there’s a way to stand firm in the face of gravity on your terms! With Ultherapy® there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.

After just one treatment your skin will gradually reflect a more lifted and toned appearance. With Ultherapy®,  you can go about your day after a single, 30-60 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term & boost, but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).

Serenity Aesthetics OC uses proven techniques with ultrasound to strengthen your skin from the inside out, the procedure is completely non-invasive- It’s a nonsurgical facelift!.

Another, less expensive option is Botox®. Botox® is known to treat crow's feet, forehead lines, smoker’s lines and for facial contouring. But did you know it can also reduce the appearance of turkey necks? It can make an aging neck appear more youthful and defined!

The Neck Lift is a fifteen-minute procedure that involves up to forty tiny injections of Botox® into the neck and lower jaw. Turkey necks form when the platysma, a thin fan of muscle that spreads from the chest up the neck to the jaw, separates into rope-like bands. Botox® relaxes some of those bands as well as the muscle, creating a firmer jaw and smoother neck.

Botox® is a neurotoxin that works by attaching itself to nerve endings. Once this happens, the neurotransmitter responsible for triggering muscle contractions, called acetylcholine, can’t be released. What does this scientific explanation mean to you?Botox® injections temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles. This treatment is a great temporary 'fix' and is not a 'cure' because it is not treating collagen or elastin. To continue to have the desired results of Botox®, you must repeat every 3-4 months. Botox® injections can enhance the results of Ultherapy®

The results of Ultherapy® are improved over 3-4 months! That's correct, your results continue to improve and you more and more improvement with lasting results! Why? Because you are treating collagen and elastin!
