We’re all beautiful on the inside, but, to be blunt—aging on the outside is a different story. Like the late Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck, in her words, “You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn’t if it had a neck.”
So what about your neck, jowls and jawline and your chest area below it—referred to as the decollete? Until quite recently there weren’t many options, and those options carried a lot of risks, including big bucks, downtime and uncertain results.
You do have options besides turtlenecks and scarves. FDA-approved technology at the Form Med Spa makes remarkable claims for a procedure called Profound—the doctor uses a needle-type device that emits a radio frequency to a specified depth and temperature. The high energy causes a controlled deep tissue injury, which in turn stimulates the body’s response to create new collagen, elastin tissue and boost hyaluronic acid levels. You know, the stuff that makes your skin look firmer, more supple and yes, lift that saggy turkey neck.
The treatment itself is intense, and you need to trust your medical professional. I went to Dr. Daniel Ward, who has a background in plastic surgery and years of experience, training and several favorable reviews. Here’s what you can expect from this procedure:
Many needle pokes—but don’t worry—they’ll numb you completely. The staff stays with you to support and hold your hand because it’s scary when someone goes at your skin like this. After the procedure, and I can’t downplay this, there will be significant swelling and bruising for the first 5-7 days. The big lift isn’t visible at first either, but be assured your gain is coming, it just takes time.
