A common area for unwanted accumulation of fat is in the neck area just below the chin (submental fullness). Sometimes called “double chin” or “turkey neck”, this condition can be the result of genetics, weight gain, aging, and laxity of skin. It tends to resist both exercise and diet. If you are looking for an alternative to expensive and painful surgery, Rose Dermatology is pleased to recommend the non-invasive MiniFX treatment.
MiniFX, like its older brother BodyFX, provides a triple action treatment consisting of (i) radiofrequency energy for the killing of fat cells, (ii) deep tissue heating for the enhanced production of collagen and firming of skin, and (iii) suction for the remodeling of tissue structure.
This comfortable treatment is performed once a week over a six to eight-week period. Gradual contouring in the treatment area can be seen following the first few sessions, with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer almost immediately. The applicator head of MiniFX is designed specifically for effectiveness and comfort in treating the chin, neck, and other small areas.
Q What is the advantage of MiniFX over other non-invasive technologies that treat “double chin”?
MiniFX both destroys the targeted fat cells AND tightens the skin above the fat cells that have been killed. In comparison, Kybella® and Coolsculpting™ are effective in killing fat cells, but have not been proven to also tighten skin (which can result in loose skin in the treatment area). Therefore, additional skin tightening technologies may be necessary for the desired results. Additionally, various side effects and risks associated with Kybella® are not present with MiniFX.
