The reason for such popularity and notoriety is that this treatment is the first non-invasive treatment that is quick and effective in treating excess fat accumulation under the chin. This treatment is very successful in treating the submental pocket of fat that is difficult to target and can leave patients feeling frustrated and self-concious.
As the chin is an area that can be resistant to diet and exercise, it is a common concern for both male and female patients. For most, this pocket of fat accumulates due to aging, genetics and weight gain. With the help of one of Double Chin Injections we can help you successfully eliminate this pocket of fat with minimal downtime and with desired results you are looking to achieve.
Downtime usually occurs after the first treatment where you will notice some stinging and swelling post treatment. During the treatment you will feel some stinging or pain at the injection site which can last for a couple of days. Subsequent treatments have less downtime, however most patients find they have some swelling for the week after their treatments. We always suggest scheduling work and social events outside of the expected treatment down times, just in case.
Treatments are performed about 2 months apart, the number of treatments vary for each patient. It is best to book a complimentary consultation with one of our expert nurse injectors who can guide you through the process and develop a treatment plan that fits your goals and budget.
This treatment is a fit for most patients, however if you are planning a surgical face lift, neck lift or liposuction we suggest holding off on treatments. Double Chin Injections should not be used if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you are allergic to deoxycholic acid, or if you have a current infection in your chin area.
YES! With a customized facial plan we can have you looking and feeling your best. Double chin injections is a great compliment to wrinkle relaxing injections, fillers, Sculptra® and laser treatments which will help to smooth and tighten the neck and your overall features.
One of the more appealing aspects of non-surgical double chin injection is that they require practically no preparation time. Patients simply schedule their visit, have a brief consultation to ensure their candidacy for treatment, and then have their procedure performed. Patients can resume their normal activities almost immediately afterwards, so they do not need to plan for an extended recovery period.
Depending on the treatment plan provided by us you can expect to repeat your treatments every 2 months. Once your desired results have been achieved there is no maintenance required. As the fat cells have been dissolved and destroyed this is a permanent procedure, no expected repetition of the treatment should be necessary.
