After spending the last year looking in the 21st century mirror that is Zoom, many people discovered their lower face and neck looked a bit too tired. Although the condition itself hasn’t changed, the name “turkey neck” has been replaced by the more modern “Zoom neck.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. Johan Brahme and non-surgical aesthetic nurse practitioner Khanh Nguyen, FNP-C join us to explain what causes the Zoom neck phenomenon in the first place, and what’s on the menu at LJC to treat it.
Dr. Brahme covers how aging skin loses elasticity and why tightening helps it appear younger and healthier. Then, he explains the best way to treat sagging skin and bands in the neck and advises patients to address wrinkles and sagging sooner rather than later since they can be challenging to get rid of later in life.
Khanh Nguyen, FNP-C explains how Zoom neck wrinkles worsen due to looking down for hours on end while using our cell phones and computers. He outlines the non-surgical solutions for dealing with wrinkles and aging skin, including Botox, fillers, lasers, threads, and other methods for helping the skin produce more collagen.
