How to Get Rid of Your Turkey Neck
- Posted on: Nov 30 2018
The only thing that you want to go “gobble, gobble” this Thanksgiving is the turkey waiting for you to cook. If you have noticed that you have some jowls or a turkey neck that’s starting to form underneath your chin you may be wondering how on earth you can get rid of it. Here at Allure Skin and Laser, we have one option, in particular, that we can use to help: The PDO Thread Lift. Let’s take a closer look at a PDO thread lift and how it can help you get a firmer neckline.
What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
Imagine a puppet being held up by marionette strings. When you let go of the strings, the puppet goes limp. When you pull on the strings, the puppet becomes erect and awake. The PDO thread lift works in a similar way. By placing thin threads underneath the skin on your neckline, we can actually lift the excess skin by pulling on the threads; helping you get rid of your turkey neck.
How Long Does It Last?
It takes about nine months for your body to completely absorb the threads. If, after the nine months, you want to get a second PDO lift, then you may get results that last up to three years. During your follow-up appointment, we will be able to determine if you would benefit from a second PDO lift.
What Are Results Like?
Our patients love their PDO lift results. During the first week after the thread lift procedure, patients notice visibly firmer skin. And, the great thing about this procedure is that it gets better over time. For instance, once the collagen and fibrous connective tissues have formed around the threads, it will help firm and tighten the neckline even more. At your initial consultation, we will be able to give you a better idea of what kinds of results you can expect after this procedure.
