Gobble gobble! It’s that time of year again for all things turkey. So please forgive us for writing a blog about the dreaded turkey neck!
Whether it’s genetics or lifestyle, or a combination of both, the neck and chin area is an impossible area of the body to tame with diet and exercise alone. No matter how well you eat or how much weight you lose, or how many hundreds of sit ups and crunches and jogs you do, your double chin will not budge. It’s a scientific fact. No, it’s not fair — and it’s not your fault — but there is hope!
AVIE! Medspa offers two treatments for tackling submental chin fat. The FDA-approved injectable Kybella®, for starters, helps to break down chin fat with a modified form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring fat-busting molecule in the body. Kybella works wonders in small areas of the body, which is why it’s FDA-approved for the chin. If we decide that Kybella is a good fit for you, you’ll experience a series of treatments spaced at least one month apart. Because every Kybella treatment is tailored to a patient’s exact needs, there’s no set number of sessions with Kybella. Some achieve their goal with one treatment, while another may need three. Each injectable session involves multiple small injections under your chin, which are quick and well-tolerated.
CoolSculpting® non-invasive fat reduction is another FDA-cleared solution for reducing chin fat. Our advanced CoolSculpting technology, including CoolAdvantage Petite™ applicators, can help us freeze away unwanted fat efficiently and with little to no downtime. The benefits of CoolSculpting are gradual. You’ll notice optimal improvements within three months of your treatment, and you may need more than one treatment to achieve your goal. We will work with you to design a treatment plan that meets your needs.
Sometimes, it’s skin — not fat — that is causing the appearance of the turkey neck. If we determine that you could benefit from skin tightening, we offer Vivace™ Micro Needle RF, the most advanced microneedling treatment on the market. Vivace stimulates skin tightening with a potent combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy for smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin where you need it most.
