Neck Lift

Neck Lift

One of the things many people don’t anticipate as they age is the skin on their neck loses elasticity, becomes loose, and wrinkles and folds can be accentuated. The rather unglamorous term for this is “Turkey Neck.” Nothing gives away your age faster than a saggy turkey neck. Some may be surprised to learn that the skin on our neck ages faster than the skin on our face.

Why does the neck age faster?

  • Your neck contains fewer oil glands than the face. Natural body oil helps preserve the hydration of the skin. Without this natural hydration, your neck will appear to age faster than your face.
  • Constant movement of the neck (twisting and turning).
  • Unprotected sun exposure – people tend to care for and protect their face skin but often forget about their neck.
  • Weight loss.
  • Life choices such as smoking and alcohol use.

How to treat and prevent Turkey Neck

Plasma Pen is a fantastic treatment for sagging jowls, turkey neck, hooded eyelids, bags under the eyes, puffy eyes, and overall loose skin. Plasma Pen delivers the most optimal and natural looking, long-lasting results, shortest down time, and the fastest recovery as it uses your own body’s own healing process. No surgery, no scars, minimal down time, long-lasting results.

What Is a treatment like?

When you arrive for your treatment at our Eagan, MN center, our team will do everything possible to help you feel at ease and well-informed. Before starting the procedure, we apply numbing cream to the treatment area, which reduces any discomfort you may have during the procedure. Everyone’s pain level is different, and some areas of the body may feel a little more sensitive than others, but most people say it’s very tolerable. Some clients have even fallen asleep. During the treatment, you will lie back, close your eyes, and listen to your favorite music as we complete the procedure.

What is the healing process like?

Days 1-7 post treatment — In the first 1-7 days, tiny carbon crusts appear on the skin as a sign of the new epithelial tissue. These carbon crusts serve as a natural and protective biological dressing that will flake off naturally as the newly formed and rejuvenated skin appears underneath. The treatment creates Type 3 collagen, which works to minimize the effect and appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin aging.

Weeks 1-12 post treatment — The comprehensive healing response is characterized by the strengthening, plumping, inflation, and lifting of the skin. We start to see the reversal of premature degeneration and a stimulation of white blood cells, filling in any gaps created through micro-trauma.

Week 12 and beyond — 12 weeks post treatment, the skin starts to form new blood vessels and release growth factors. These growth factors include cytokines, which are small proteins that help our cell aging and the repair and growth of new cells.

How many treatments are needed?

Most people get the results they are looking for with just one treatment; however, a second treatment may be needed if your have deep wrinkles and significant saggy skin. For those that are just starting to develop wrinkles and sagging skin on their neck, only one treatment is needed, and this is an excellent preventative measure to prevent wrinkles from developing in the first place since the treatment produces collagen.

How long do results last?

Results are considered permanent; however, our skin continues to age, so you can expect the results to last anywhere from three or more years. Doing a Plasma Pen treatment on your neck before turkey neck sets in is an excellent preventative treatment, because Plasma Pen creates collagen and elastin. Therefore, maintaining or building up your collagen level before wrinkles set in is an excellent way to fight the aging process.
