Thanks to the intense scrutiny we apply to our bodies, we manage to invent some rather amusing names for the parts we are not happy with. Whoever coined the term for neck fat must have done so while digesting Thanksgiving dinner, because “turkey neck” remains the moniker for a saggy neck to this day. For both men and women, there is but one FDA-approved method for eliminating this unwanted feature and that is the wildly popular, non-invasive treatment known as CoolSculpting.
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, there has been a 20 percent improvement in chin fat reduction in clinical trials involving CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, which then eliminate naturally from the body over a period of time. It is a method that works best in candidates who are fit and health conscious, yet unable to make progress in specific areas.
A medical spa, such as Eureka, will always accompany its CoolSculpting sessions with sound advice, such as the following:
- Drink lots of water! If your goal is to prevent your skin from hanging, it is important to stay hydrated. With proper hydration, your skin will bounce back where it belongs.
- Maintain proper BMI! Your body mass index refers to the proper weight for your height. By maintaining proper BMI, you prevent fat deposits from forming in areas that are hard to treat with diet and exercise.
- Exercise! While many who seek the CoolSculpting treatment already exercise on a regular basis, we would be remiss if we failed to mention there are specific routines for tightening this area. For example, one recommendation is to sit straight while looking up and making a chewing motion with your mouth closed for 30 seconds.
Of course, you could always buy more turtlenecks, but we believe you will find CoolSculpting far more preferable. After two visits and zero downtime, your neck line will be visibly streamlined. Aside from some pulling and mild pinching, there will be little sensation other than the cold. It is not uncommon for patients to catch up on texts or e-mails, just as if they were on a treadmill. Some even take a quick nap, which could be dangerous while using gym equipment! To schedule your CoolSculpting session, please call and make an appointment.
