DOUBLE CHIN REDUCTION INJECTION
That pocket of fat under the chin, often referred to as a “double chin” impacts both men and women. More than 67% of consumers say they’re bothered by it, and it’s an area of the body that is resistant to exercise, too.
Though often associated with being overweight, a double chin can occur with any body type and may be caused by aging, genetics and weight gain.
Keep your chin up! Our INLIV medical aesthetics department is introducing a new, injectable, non-surgical option to treat a double chin.
- Reduces double-chin (fat under the chin); also known as submental fullness
- Redefines the jaw line
- Improves chin profile
- Non-surgical, injectable treatment for double chin
- Safe and effective in reducing submental fullness
- Designed to treat moderate to severe amounts of fat under the chin
- Small amounts of fat are dissolved during the treatment, so there is no negative impact on the liver or kidneys
- Physically destroys the fat cells, so they can no longer store or accumulate fat
WHAT TO EXPECT
Side effects from double chin injections are temporary and usually resolve in as little as two weeks.
The most common side effects are swelling and bruising, that are often noticeable for the initial week, before gradually resolving completely. Some patients experience itching and some discomfort that can take a month or two to disappear. Additionally, numbness, redness and areas of hardness in the treatment area may occur.
HOW IT WORKS
To begin, a consultation with one of INLIV’s specially-trained physicians is required before a treatment is scheduled. It’s important to determine if you are a candidate and to assess how many treatments will be needed to achieve your desired result. In most cases, two to four treatment sessions are required. Treatments are spaced six to eight weeks apart. This allows for swelling to reduce and for the physician to accurately assess the area before injecting again.
Once it has been determined you are a candidate, we recommend scheduling your appointment for a time when you will have a few days post-treatment for the swelling to reduce.
During your treatment, a transparent grid is drawn on the area to map out the appropriate injection points. Each client is unique, and the treatment is customized for your specific needs.
Each session requires 20 – 50 injections, depending upon the size of the area to be treated and the amount of fullness.
When your series of sessions is complete, there should be no reason to treat the area further, as the fat cells have been destroyed. Maintaining a healthy weight is important, however, as weight gain may create fat in the area again.
This treatment is effective in reducing fat below the chin. To tighten loose skin, Thermage may be recommended.
