What Does Your Neck Tell?

Let's face it, having an attractive and prominent jawline is attractive to both men and women. Unfortunately, things like loose skin under the chin and excess chin fat can definitely hamper one's profile. No one wants their neck to tell their age.

Thankfully our team at FAC has the tools and passion to get you looking your best, and in this article, we'll take a closer look at what causes these imperfections and how to overcome them. 

What Causes Turkey Neck And Jowls?

For the most part, the appearance of the turkey neck and/or jowls is caused by the natural aging process, but can be noticed sooner in some individuals. A recent issue called “tech neck” has caused more women at a younger age notice lax skin on their neck and jaw due to constant looking down at your phone or computer. 

As we age our skin gradually starts losing some of its elasticity. Not only that, but the skin also starts to lose connective tissue and collagen, which gives your skin that full and rounded shape.

And while aging has a direct effect on the skin that as a result becomes less elastic, the neck muscles play a role too. Our muscles act as support for our skin and that's crucial when it comes to the neck area. We can use Botox to relax the platysmal band muscle to prevent the wrinkles caused by this muscle from causing lax skin and wrinkles sooner.

All of this eventually leads to the infamous turkey neck as well as jowls. Even though we all inevitably go through the aging process, certain aspects may speed up aging, such as:

  •   Smoking
  •   Genetics
  •   Sun/UV exposure
  •   Posture

No one can control his or her genetics, but we definitely can control other risk factors like UV exposure, posture, and smoking.

How To Prevent And Reverse The Appearance Of Turkey Neck And Jowls

Thanks to technological advances we are able to reverse, prevent, and improve the appearance of jowls and turkey neck from procedures, to treatments, and products.

On one hand, minimizing certain risk factors like smoking and sun exposure might help. Also, specific exercises can help tone the muscles in the neck and face area. Genetics  is something you can’t avoid or prevent from occurring, but you can take preventative measures to prevent premature aging.

As for reversing the appearance of jowls and turkey neck - here are the most effective treatment options that we currently offer and recommend:

Necklift

Neck lift surgery is also known as a lower rhytidectomy. This procedure is used to improve and correct aesthetic problems that occur in the skin and underlying tissue of the neck. Such problems include sagging or relaxed skin that creates the appearance of jowls, excess fat beneath the chin, loose skin on the neck due to weight loss, and “bands” on the neck that create displeasing contours.

If you have fat under the chin as well, submental liposuction can be performed in conjunction with a necklift.

Submental Lipo

Submental Liposuction is the process of removing excess fat under the chin, known as a “double chin”.

Most people who don’t like the look of their neck are experiencing loose, sagging skin, which won’t be corrected with liposuction alone. But very often, liposuction is used as part of a neck lift to remove fat cells in the submental region – particularly for people who have a “double chin.” Younger people who just want better definition below their jawline are the most likely patients to have liposuction alone without additional surgical correction.

ThermiTight

ThermiTight is a painless, micro-invasive procedure that uses injectable radiofrequency energy — the science of heat — to reduce the appearance of sagging skin on the neck and jowls.

ThermiTight tightens skin, stimulates collagen production and reduces fat. Dramatic results are usually achieved after just 1 treatment. Because there is minimal discomfort and downtime, you can usually return to your normal activities in a matter of hours. You may be asked to wear a chin strap after your procedure in order to optimize your recovery. Submental liposuction can be performed as well to rid of excess chin fat to provide the appearance of a tighter jawline.

ThermiTight is perfect for patients who want a tighter neck and jowls but do not want surgery.

All About Filler

What's stopping you from looking your best? A younger, more refreshed look is just an appointment away!

Our highly experienced team of medical professionals will provide you with the best possible, natural looking results to maintain or restore your youthful contours without looking 'overdone'. Fillers are used to fill in and maintain the youthful structure of your face along with enhancing existing features. Early intervention with nonsurgical treatment can possibly prevent or postpone the need for plastic surgery in the future.

WHAT DOES FILLER TREAT?

Filler is used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance your facial features. There are many areas filler can be used to your benefit. Here are some popular uses for dermal fillers:

  • Smoothing natural lines on the neck.
  • Adding or restoring volume to your cheek. Enhance your cheekbone definition for youthful contours. 
  • Improve the appearance of hollow, 'tired' eyes. Filler can be injected to fill out depressions in the eye area and smoothing out laugh lines around eye creases.
  • Around the mouth to smoothing out existing creases from the nose to the mouth.
  • Non-surgical chin augmentation

HOW MUCH FILLER DO I NEED?
DID YOU KNOW? One full syringe of filler (1.0mL) is only equal to 1/5 of a teaspoon!

Most patients often need more than 1 syringe of filler to meet their desired goal, but are often hesitant to because it sounds like a lot to them. In reality it isn't much at all, especially when you're looking for a significant change.

Are you looking to restore your youthful contours? The common recommended amount of fillers would be between 2-5 syringes of filler if you are looking to restore age-related volume loss. Ultimately, the recommended filler amount is based on your desired goal discussed during a on a one-on-one consultation you will have you with your provider during a complimentary consultation.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR FILLER TREATMENT

  • To minimize the risk of bruising, do not consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
  • It is also advisable to avoid anti-inflammatory medications or drugs and supplements that can thin the blood for at least 2 weeks before treatment. Some of these include aspirin, ibuprofen, NSAIDs, vitamin E, and supplements containing ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, or omega 3. If you are unsure if a medication or supplement you take could have an adverse effect, please talk with us before your treatment.
  • If you apply Retin-A, discontinue use 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
  • If you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area to be treated, contact us to reschedule. Patients with a history of cold sores may be prescribed an anti-viral medication prior to treatment.
  • Tell us if you are pregnant or breastfeeding — your treatment will need to be postponed
