About Double Chin Injection Treatments in Vancouver


You’ll know it if you have it; that stubborn pocket of fat under your chin that regardless of your diet and fitness level refuses to disappear. This can often be the result of circumstances out of our control, such as aging or genetics, and we understand how frustrating that can be – as this can often cause dysphoria around how we look and feel about ourselves.  Double Chin Injections offer a non-surgical solution to helping you shed the double chin that just won’t budge. Double Chin Injections are FDA and Health Canada authorized, and work to dissolve submental (under chin) fat and have you looking and feeling your best. 


Who to Choose for Double Chin Injection in Vancouver?


While Double Chin Injections are a relatively quick and non-surgical treatment for chin fat, it is important to have a highly skilled and experienced treatment provider who is very familiar with the process and the product used.  As this is an injectable treatment, having someone who is experienced with placing injectable treatments into the site is highly beneficial, as it can help to reduce bruising and extensions to your downtime.

Why We Love Double Chin Injections


Double Chin Injections are almost too good to be true, because it is a non-surgical solution to stubborn chin fat with minimal down time, not to mention that it kills the fat in the area permanently – meaning that you can say goodbye to chin fat forever!  Once the treatments have been performed and the desired results are achieved, retreating the area further down the track is rarely required.   The Double Chin Injection treatment itself is quick and non-invasive, and typically takes less than an hour. The downtime is also minimal; with only minor swelling and discomfort for the week that follows.

What Are Double Chin Injections?


Double Chin Injections are a safe and effective way to treat submental fat, which is the fat under the chin area – which causes the condition known as “submental fullness”. 


Who Are Double Chin Injections For?


This treatment is usually 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. Otherwise, if you are interested in Double Chin Injections, we suggest booking a complimentary consultation. 


How Are Double Chin Injection Treatments Performed?


After you have completed your complimentary consultation, your subsequent treatment sessions will be performed by one of our experienced Aesthetic Nurse Injectors, who will administer the Double Chin Injection directly into the fat under your chin, through multiple subcutaneous injections.  Treatment typically lasts no longer than an hour, including an optional topical numbing ointment.  During the treatment you will feel some stinging at the injection site which may last for a couple of days. The number of injections and treatments required will be customized to the individual patient’s submental fat distribution and treatment goals. 



What Can I Expect with Double Chin Injection Treatment?


For the week following the treatment, you can expect some stinging and swelling around the injection site.  Subsequent treatments usually 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 downtime; so take some time off, relax and enjoy a self-care week just for you! 


Other Treatments to Complement Double Chin Injections


Depending on your overall goal, we can customize a facial treatment plan to have you looking and feeling your best. Double Chin Injections are a great to combine with:
