2016 brings us our resolutions for improved fitness, health, nutrition, organization, and wellness.  But there are some things that weight loss and exercise just can’t help–like a sagging neck that makes you appear older than you are.  There’s no better time to take advantage of the non-surgical, non-invasive skin tightening treatments like Ultherapy available at Maryland Dermatology Laser, Skin, and Vein Institute.

What is a Turkey Neck?

The telltale signs of a “turkey neck” include sagging, folded skin under your chin and around your neck.  As we get older, the delicate skin of the face and neck can become thinner, losing elasticity and volume as the body naturally produces less and less collagen and elastin. The muscles may even soften, emphasizing the rolls, banding, and wrinkles that gradually sag more and more over time.

How Does Ultherapy Improve Turkey Neck?

Ultherapy is the only non-surgical, FDA-approved skin tightening device available to treat thinning, sagging skin around the chin and neck. Using non-invasive ultrasound waves to target the deep layers of skin tissue, Ultherapy triggers the body’s natural collagen and elastin production, allowing the skin to naturally regain lift. Improved treatment protocols for Ultherapy have improved its breakthrough results. Not only that, combination treatment with injectable muscle relaxers like Botox or Dysprt greatly enhances the results of Ultherapy by softening the harsh banding of neck muscles that affect so many. MDLSV specializes in additional types of treatment to further improve the aged neck, such as noninvasive photorejuvenation and non-invasive fat reduction.,
