Neck / Chin

I Hate My Neck!

The most common comment from patients to Dr. Karlsberg is…”I hate my neck!” They’re usually saying this as they pull on loose skin or wiggle the fatty area under their chin. If you hate your neck (or chin), it may be the only thing you notice when you see yourself in the mirror, and that can be depressing.

The many causes of an aged or undesirable look to the neck or chin area may surprise you- genetics, changes in weight, health issues, environment, sun damage, and muscle activity can all play a role. Dr. Karlsberg has spent countless hours researching procedures to find those that will most effectively help his patients reduce their sagging neck skin, neck wrinkles, “double-chin,” or jowls.

Our most recent addition to the practice, THERMItight, has patients and our staff very excited with the results we’re seeing! THERMItight uses a small cannula to deliver heat to a target area without disrupting the skin’s surface. The result is safe, effective, long-lasting tightening of the neck and jowl area.

Did you know that Dr. Karlsberg and his staff are also experienced in four different methods of reducing submental fullness (read: “double chin”)? Coolsculpting uses cryolipolysis to “freeze” fat cells. It involves no needles, surgery or downtime. It’s comfortable– Coolsculpting patients can sit or lie comfortably and read, work on their laptop or even nap during the procedure. It’s convenient– procedures last about one to two hours, so treatment can easily be performed during a lunch hour or without major disruption to the day. And the results are dramatic.

Since our office provides three other options for submental fat and many more for loose neck skin and wrinkles, creating a customized and multi-treatment approach is easy and most effective!
