Leave the Turkey Neck for Thanksgiving – Try Ultherapy!

mata-ultThanksgiving is a special time to eat turkey, and to spend it with family and friends. In fact, your attention should focus on the holiday festivities and not on hiding your ‘turkey neck’ as soon as the family photo shoot starts.

Also called the double chin, ‘turkey neck’ is a condition wherein fat deposits accumulate in the submental area. This causes the skin in the neck and jowls to sag. The double chin is mainly a result of obesity, weight gain, excessive weight loss, age, and genetics. Sometimes, it is due to an excess of fat cells in the chin region.

Regardless of the causes, the infamous ‘turkey neck’ is treatable using a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure called Ultherapy®. Yes, you can breathe a sigh of relief now, as you don’t need needles, lasers, or surgeries to eliminate your double chin permanently.

Indeed, Ultherapy® is the perfect Thanksgiving gift for yourself. That’s not the only reason you should try this treatment, though.

How Ultherapy® Works in Eliminating the Turkey Neck

Ultherapy® doesn’t use lasers or needles to tighten the skin. Instead, it uses sound waves to stimulate collagen production, fighting the effects of gravity and rejuvenating the skin in the neck and jowls.

Why You Should Try Ultherapy®

  • It’s fast acting.

Ultherapy® targets multiple layers of the skin, so you can expect to see subtle changes immediately after the treatment. You will then see significant improvements in the weeks and months that follow.

  • The results look natural.

The results of this treatment are subtle. It tightens your skin gradually so the changes look more natural. In addition to its natural-looking results, the treatment will leave you with zero scars. This means you don’t have to worry about hiding your neck with a scarf or a turtleneck.

  • The treatment is customizable.

The Ultherapy® device allows Dr. Matarasso to adjust the energy depth and treatment length to fit your needs. He can also perform this procedure with other cosmetic treatments like Botox® or Restylane® concomitantly.

  • It can fit your busy schedule.

The average treatment time is 30 minutes, making it possible for you to squeeze an hour of your time to get the procedure. You also don’t need downtime for this.

  • The result is long lasting.

The layers of your skin will continue to produce collagen even after your treatment. Overtime, you will see improvements in your neck and jowl areas that will last for several months.
