I know what you’re thinking… the only turkey neck you’d like to see is on the one on the Thanksgiving dinner table!
Sagging skin is a dead giveaway of our age and almost impossible to fight with over-the-counter products. As the dreaded jowls and turkey neck become more obvious, many people choose to go down the surgical route in order to fix this issue, but with any kind of surgery, it comes with risks. But now there is an effective alternative to tighten and lift your sagging neck – with our new ThermiSMOOTH a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that Dr. Wright now offers at Skin MD and Beyond.
Dr. Wright’s Tip
Loose neck skin is one of the most obvious signs of aging. As we age our skin loses the elasticity that it had in our younger years, and this causes it to become loose and appear saggy. To find a solution, my patients today are demanding faster, less invasive procedures with little, if any, downtime that can reduce those pockets of unwanted fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, and tighten loose sagging skin. And now I am excited to announce the newest advancement in tissue tightening and non-surgical fat reduction for face and neck contouring – ThermiSMOOTH, using exclusive ThermiRF technology.
ThermiRF technology is performed using a specially designed thermistor regulated hand piece, which delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface which is gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage. Clinical studies show that the collagen in skin will shrink when heated to a sustained temperature in excess of 40°C. Further, it has been shown that when the skin is heated to this level, an inflammatory process is engaged which can stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen over a period of time which will shrink and tighten skin.
Knowing these medical facts, ThermiSMOOTH harnessed this knowledge and created a device that works! ThermiSMOOTH skin tightening is arguably the most exciting new tool to emerge in the aesthetic medicine field in the last few years!
