“In a recent study, over 67% of US adults were bothered by their neck appearance and wished they could do something about it.”

SculpSure® is clearly taking over the world and becoming a true leader in body contouring.  Being so good at helping people achieve their dream bodies without any surgery and downtime, SculpSure® decided to tackle upper body starting with under chin fat.

What causes under chin fat to develop?

Your Genes, Your lifestyle and aging.  Out of all of these, you can only control lifestyle by dieting and exercising, which unfortunately is sometimes just not enough. For this reason, people are looking for the most effective treatments without any downtime to help them remove double chin fat.

Can exercise alone help loose fat under the chin?

Highly unlikely.  There is no exercise that specifically targets the neck muscles and you can’t really run cardio exercises with your chinJ .  Dieting and exercise affects your whole body and may result in desirable weight loss and body contouring, but it is still hard to target under chin area.

How long does the SculpSure® under chin treatment take?

It is a quick 25 minute procedure which uses heating and cooling technology to effectively reduce the fat cells

Is SculpSure® applicator for the body the same as for under chin?

No, under chin area is very curvy and the applicator was specifically designed to fit under the chin.  The applicators for the body looks different, but the technology is exactly the same and the satisfaction rate is just as high if not higher.

Is SculpSure® under chin area safe?

Absolutely yes. The applicator was specifically designed to target the selected fat area without affecting nearby nerves and/or blood vessels.  During clinical trials the temperature and the spread of heat was very carefully monitored to ensure its safety and efficacy before bong fully cleared by the FDA. The timing between heating and cooling of the under chin applicator is different between the timing of heating and cooling present in the body applicators.

SculpSure® is designed by the same company which created SmartLipo, so you can be absolutely assured that the absolute highest safety standards were applied in the creation, research, and development of SculpSure® treatment for various body parts. Under chin area being very very important.

How many treatments does one need with SculpSure® for under chin area?

In clinical trials, patients started to see a nice improvement with as little as one treatment.  With more treatments, there is less fat cells remaining and hence, it gives better profile appearance.  It is safe to say that consultation is always required to determine the best treatment modality and the number of treatments needed.  One should aim between 1-3 treatments.

How long does it take to see results after SculpSure® for under chin area?

It takes about 6-12 weeks for the body to eliminate damaged fat cells using the lymphatic system.

Is there any downtime with SculpSure® after under chin area treatment?

No, there might me sight redness and soreness but absolutely no marks, cuts, bruises or scars and no swelling.  No need to bring scarfs or wear turtle necks.

Dr. Avaliani is excited to be the first practice in NYC to offer SculpSure® treatment for under chin fat removal.

This treatment will be a great addition to the current array of various non invasive treatment modalities designed for under chin fat reduction and contouring. They are Kybella and Ultherapy.
