Haha I thought it was going to be about actual turkey necks, too :)


I bet your loose skin will improve, but I'm not sure how much. I think that might depend on your age and the condition of your skin.

Not gonna lie, when I saw this subject in the list, I thought it was going to be a post about what people do with the turkey neck that's stuffed inside the butterball turkey. I just throw it out :) Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! :)

It may or may not get better with time.

Let me guess - that spa sells micodermabrasion sessions? Don't take a recommendation from anyone who sells what they're recommending - they have a very vested interest in telling you that treatment is needed - they want to make money! :)

As I understand microdermabrasion, it may help with the colour or quality of skin, but doesn't do anything about how much skin you have. Your problem is elasticity (you want to be elastic and shrink down), not quality of what is there. I'm no skin care expert, but I wouldn't think mda would really help much. Get a second opinion from someone who doesn't sell it, if that spa person does... :)

It might get better with time, especially if you are losing slowly, if you are young, and if you have good genes!

Most people need surgery to remove excess skin.

One of the reasons I gained some weight back about a year ago was because of this very problem. I think I will have to resort to some turtle neck tops this time around.

Thanks for your response : )
u said wait for mother nature to catch up..so do you think it will get better in time ?
I know that someone that runs a spa suggested microdermabrasion treatments..which I really dont want...someone else said..like a mini neck lift surgery..ugh....

Time....

Nothing really helps shrink skin. Drink lots of water, stay well hydrated, and wait for mother nature to catch up. :)
