Turkey neck, wattle, double chin, dewlap…whatever you call it, unwanted fat and loose skin on the neck can be a pain in the…well…neck! But how can you get rid of the loose hanging skin and extra fat beneath the chin without neck lift surgery or liposuction? For years, patients’ only option was elective surgery; today, however, non-surgical turkey neck lift options are numerous, giving patients more choices in their cosmetic care.
Non-Surgical Turkey Neck Lift Treatments in Indianapolis
At the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana, we offer patients with loose skin or excess fat on the neck several non-surgical options, including cosmetic injectables and newly FDA-approved non-surgical fat reduction treatments. While these treatments are non-surgical, all procedures are provided by board-certified dermatologic surgeon Dr. C. William Hanke. This provides patients with the best possible cosmetic results, as Dr. Hanke is an experienced liposuction surgeon and board-certified dermatologist who conducted clinical trials on a few of the treatments discussed below.
Cosmetic Injectables for Neck Rejuvenation
Botox Neck Lift: Botox is commonly used as a localized muscle relaxer, or what is commonly referred to as a wrinkle relaxer. However, Botox is also administered as an off-label solution for neck tightening. When injected into the platysmal bands of the neck, patients see a marked improvement in skin laxity and wrinkling. Results are temporary, lasting 3-4 months. However, most patients say that returning for repeat treatments is worth it to avoid turkey neck lift surgery.
Dermal Fillers for Neck Lines and Tech Neck: For patients who have tight, youthful skin in the neck, but are dealing with horizontal lines associated with tech neck, dermal fillers like Belotero Balance can help. When injected below the skin by a dermatologic surgeon, the thick gel filler plumps up the area to smooth out lines and folds, revealing a smooth, youthful neck.
Non-Surgical Double Chin Reduction
Kybella Non-Surgical Double Chin Injections: Before 2015, the only solution for double chin fat was liposuction. However, after clinical trials were conducted across the United States, including here at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana, Kybella was FDA-approved and placed on the market as a non-surgical double chin reduction treatment. After a series of 4-6 treatments provided at one-month intervals, patients see a dramatic reduction in submental fullness.
CoolMini Double Chin Reduction by CoolSculpting: Not long after Kybella received the first ever FDA-approval for non-surgical double chin reduction, CoolSculpting received FDA-clearance for their new CoolMini applicator. Using a technology known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting was already a popular choice for non-surgical body contouring to reduce fat around the midsection and thighs. With the addition of the CoolMini applicator, patients now have more choices for double chin reduction.
