Fat around the neck can be an issue for anybody, creating a double chin, which can cause self-consciousness and lack of self-confidence.
Weight plays a part in this condition; excess weight can be stored anywhere on the body, and can form stubborn fatty deposits all over. If you regularly consume more calories than you burn, the excess are stored in fat cells, which can grow indefinitely. Genetics also dictate how weight is stored; so if your parents had excess neck fat, you are more likely to carry weight there as well.
We have a range of treatments that are designed to reduce or get rid of neck fat to suit every individual; from fat freezing to a laser neck lift. To find out the best way to treat your neck fat, book a no obligation consultation with one of our highly trained clinicians at PHI Clinic today.Book consultation

This damages the fat cells, which are cleared away naturally by the lymphatic system over time. The device we use cools the skin during treatment to reduce any discomfort that may be felt, and up to four applicators can be used in separate areas during one ...Read on Book consultation
