This treatment is a non-invasive yet effective approach to reducing the size of a chin or dealing with a double chin. This problem is something commonly faced by both men and women struggling with stubborn fat deposits in their chin, and one of those aesthetic concerns that can’t be hidden with makeup or growing out a beard. It can be disheartening doing a full face of makeup or styling your hair only to feel let down by an oversized chin, thanks to this modern procedure to treat double chin problems you don’t have to.
How Does this Treatment Treat a Double Chin?
This injectable contains a chemical naturally found in the body that helps absorb the fat from food. When a prepared solution containing this chemical is injected into fatty areas such as an oversized chin, the fat cells are destroyed by a process called adipocytolysis, where the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted leading to the irreversible breakdown of affected cells. This process destroys the fat cells in a way that makes them unable to store fat again; a simple comparison is to how a popped balloon can no longer hold air.
What Are the Side Effects of This Treatment?
The most common side effects that can occur with this treatment are bruising, redness, firmness, a feeling of warmth, and temporary numbness of the chin area. If you experience any of these, they are typically relatively mild and very unlikely to result in any permanent problems. If further treatments are applied patients often find any minor discomfort experienced following the initial treatment is reduced following subsequent treatments.
How Long Does it Take to See Results?
You will begin to notice a reduction in the fat content of your chin between four to eight weeks after treatment and start to see more definition to your jaw-line with much better contouring.
What Side Effects Are Possible with This Treatment?
There is mild discomfort during the injection process, and this is to be expected. To reduce discomfort, we will typically apply a local anaesthetic to the target area to numb the area making the treatment more comfortable as it’s performed.
