Double Chin Injections in Vancouver, BC

The appearance of a double chin affects people in different ways, and this stubborn pocket of fat may choose to remain regardless of your diet and exercise level. This can often be the result of circumstances out of our control, such as aging or genetics, and—for many—can cause disconnect between 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 made with naturally-occuring deoxycholic acid are FDA- and Health Canada-authorized, and work to dissolve submental (under chin) fat to help you look and feel your best.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for double chin injections?

  • Double chin
  • Sagging jowl

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.

How do double chin injections work?

Double chin injections utilize deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Deoxycholic acid destroys the walls of fat cells when they come in contact with them. Once the walls have been destroyed, they are unable to hold or accumulate fat, resulting in less fullness under the chin.

How are double chin injections performed?

Your treatment sessions will require you to be in a relaxed, reclined position. Your treatment provider will mark a series of injection points under your chin, which will be in a grid-like pattern. Your injector will then administer multiple injections into these marked points, directly into the submental subcutaneous fat.

Treatment typically lasts no longer than an hour, including an optional topical numbing ointment. During the treatment you will feel a mild stinging sensation 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 should I expect with double chin injections?

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!

It takes between 4-6 weeks for the deoxycholic acid to work in the body, and for you to begin to start to see the results. It’s important to keep your treatment plan in mind, as just one treatment may not deliver the complete results you are after. Your treatment provider will discuss the process with you, and set your expectations for your results timeline.
