No turkey necks were harmed...

...in the following pictures so please do not call the TNPA (Turkey Neck Protection Agency) on me!

Because, frankly, I have better things to do now that I am no longer being followed around by flocks of turkeys trying to mate with my neck.

When I came home from my RF treatment yesterday, one of my "admirers" came up and looked me over closely......"Hey," he gobbled loudly to his friends... "Let's get the flock out of here...I don't know what happened to the object of our desire! She is no longer here. There is only this imposter woman with a barely turkey-neck neck!"

And they all flew off in a big huff.

I was happy to see them go.

I think they liked me because before I got my RF treatment this is what my feathery little stalkers saw each day when I left the house......so of course they wanted me...how could they resist such an unusual turkey necked woman.

I have to apologize for my before and afters and I think I should have taken these in sunshine but it was rainy here yesterday...so this is the best I could do...you can see the creping here a bit... ...and the looser skin, especially right under my chin... But now...after an hour yesterday morning of getting my neck and face rubbed with a little magic wand thing...kind of imagine an ultrasound with your face covered with gel instead of your pregnant stomach and that same feeling as the little hand-wand thing rubbing back and forth.

They cover each area of your neck and face for about 8 minutes. It didn't hurt at all...and they had this little temperature reading thing-y and kept taking the temperature of the skin and although the reading ranged between 101 and 105 degrees it never felt very hot...almost just like a warm bath. After the hour treatment I could definitely see a noticeable difference.

I kept looking in the rearview mirror on the way home and I thought maybe it was just wishful thinking but when I walked in the door my husband commented "wow, that really worked!" ...and when I went to get my hair cut with the lady I always go to she said "wow, your face looks really good! What are you doing?" So I told her and showed her my neck and she said she is making an appointment to get her turkey neck worked on as well. But even though I'm happy about my neck I feel kind of lonely. I think I miss my turkey boyfriends a little bit.

It never hurts to have a few extra admirers around...human or fowl.

So I think I'm going to get some cracked corn and go sit outside on the wall for a little bit hoping to lure them back.

Maybe they'll come to visit me again.

And maybe they'll even be willing to snuggle a little bit...even though we are almost a different species now.

Sigh.

I have more of a hippo neck. Fortunately, we have a large enough tub to secure the boy hippo when he comes to visit. Perhaps if I shed a few pounds, I can trade the hippo for a flock of turkeys. Meanwhile... you look fabulous! Great neck,chick... *wink wink*....

As Told By Molly said...

Wow! I love hearing when things like this really work.

MrsJenB said...

Wonderful! I'm glad this worked for you!

Kelly Howard said...

Jenny! I admire your courage to fight back at aging! You are looking FABULOUS! Leave Turkey-Lurkey behind...and go find Ducky-Lucky!

Nora Johnson said...

Glad too this worked for you - congrats!

XOXO LOLA:)

Helene said...

"Let's get the flock out of here"...that was the BEST line!!! I've always wondered about those kinds of procedures..if they really work. Obviously, they do! Lookin good!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday...hope you'll be back again soon!

Theresa said...

OK, let's try this again! My comment was here and then it was gone. I can really tell the difference in you neck. I think I could handle this treatment, it didn't seem too painful:) I'm a little chicken.... oh, that was bad:) Anyway, I bought one of those things As Seen On TV for this problem but haven't use it. It might work! You have a good day Jenny Matlock and gobble gobble:)

Debbie said...

That is awesome!!~

Jennifer said...

Aw, I'm glad it worked and you're happy! :)

Julie Harward said...

You are amazing and amazingly funny too! Glad you're happy! Come say hi :D

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Looks great, Jenny! I might even have to pursue this. Mine, though, is crepey. Can they help crepe???

Cute post.

I nearly fell on a tablescape I prepared for today. Fortunately, the Leprechauns shouted, "Be careful with yourself there, Sheila O'Magpie!" And I got a grip. ;-)

XO,

Sheila :-)

turkeys are only good on the dinner table.

that being said, i suppose they're also good as admirers.

Julie Schuler said...

How smooth! And it was just with some kind of heated wand? Can I do it with a curling iron, before it gets too hot? I am making mental notes of all of this for the future, you know.

laterg8r said...

so fun - you are a braaaave lady to go back and have anything done after the needle incident :D

Linda said...

I am liking this procedure. Looks really good...needles, not so much. I would do this!! Oh well fowls are like that you know, here today gone tomorrow.

Vickie said...

Hey Jen, that worked pretty good. Boy after all that stuff you're doing (and the needle thing) you are going to look like a teenager! I'm glad this is working for you. A friend of mine gave me this little plastic mask that you put on over some gel stuff and it gave you little electrical zaps on different areas of your face. I did it once, and when I started getting zaps, I slung that mask about half-way across the room.

You're a braver woman than I! And also very funny!

BECKY said...

Hi Jenny! Congrats and you look fabulous, dahhhhling! You are also a hilarious writer!! When I saw even just the title of this post, and then read on further, I thought, "Oh my gosh. Jenny and I are a lot alike. I'm so glad she stumbled upon my blog!" I, too have a little bit of a double chin, and a definite "turkey neck"! The other turkey similarity is that one of the chapters in my book is: Frostbite from a Turkey Neck" :D

Susan said...

I think you look so pretty with and without the new skin treatments. You just have that glow.
We are headed to Phoenix in a couple of weeks for a baseball tournament, I am ready for some sun and warm weather.
Enjoy your new neck,
Susan

Chatty Crone said...

I loved that - I want one - does it help for double chins - or do you haved to get two of them?

Crystal Escobar said...

haha, love your humor, and WOW! I love the before and afters, it looks amazing! That's only after ONE treatment? Where did you go? I don't have saggy skin YET, but I'm all about anti-aging. Thinking about botox, but still a little sceptacle. What do you think?

Busy Bee Suz said...

I am so happy for you Jenny.
THis looks great and I will keep it in mind for the future. (the near future)

Mighty M said...

Your neck looks great.

I hate any kind of bird that might try to "peck" at me. Avoid avoid! :)

Deb said...

love your stories...

sissie said...

Why is it that our necks always seem to age faster than our faces???
Anyway, yours looks great. I think I'm going to look into that procedure.
Maybe if you bribe the turkeys with some good corn they will come back for a visit and admire your neck.LOl!

hugs
Sissie

Tracey said...

That is awesome! Would you be willing to share what beauty school you go to for this treatment? (I think we live in the same neck of the woods). I would love to make an appointment!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Wow! That looks great -- I may have to think about doing that myself - or else find a turtle necked bathing suit!

Michelle said...

I had to let you know, that your neck turned out awesome!!!

Jojo said...

That is fantastic! I want a turkey neck treatment!!!! What is a TNT called? I like it better thant the red-lines, stay home for a week and it will go away, treatment!!!

MOMSICLE VIBE said...

I was so skeptical of any kind of treatments like that. Can't argue with pictures. You look great :)

Maggey and Jim said...

That is amazing.. Really? Looks so much better..I really need that.

I had some 8 year old brat tell me today I look old, & have "crinkly skin". I'm all of 43. I'm hoping and praying her ass drops at the age of 15 and that I'm around to laugh at her.

Your neck does look different. If it makes you feel better I say go for it.

I'm planning in growing old disgracefully. I earned every grey hair and wrinkle and I'm going to flaunt them like Beyonce's booty.

Pondside said...

At the next Esthetitians' Convention the big topic will be 'why the huge surge in demand' and they'll never know to trace it to your blog!

Terri and Bob said...

Oooo, that looks awesome! I have to try that! I can't get rid of the turkeys around me... I think it has something to do with the big backends.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

You are so brave! Pictures! I'm really glad to know it helped...there is hope for all of us! I'm also glad to know that it didn't hurt. I wonder how often you will need to do it?

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

I'm a "details" woman. Exactly what did it dooooooooooooooooooooooo?

And is it still going to be the same, after a few days?

Yeah, I am soooooooo nosy, aren't I?

gayle said...
