WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A FAT-DISSOLVING INJECTION TREATMENT?
Fat-dissolving treatment is the procedure that injects into the skin a naturally occurring substance called deocxycholic acid. This acid is responsible for helping the body to absorb fats in our gastrointestinal system. When it is injected into fats accumulated in other parts of our body, deocxycholic acid acts the same – destroys the fat cells and allows the body’s lymphatic system to gradually flush out the dissolved fat like any other waste product. Since fat cells do not regenerate, once they are destroyed they are gone forever, leaving you with the slimmer chin and younger look.
The fat-dissolving injection treatment shows the best results in people with the reasonable full under-jaw area and fairly good skin elasticity. If the skin under your jaw is excessively loose, or your skin has poor elasticity, this is not the right treatment for you. You would be better served by treatments such as neck lift. Nevertheless, a fat-dissolving injections may be still considered, as part of the comprehensive treatment plan. You should discuss other possible alternatives during your consultation with our injector Rebecca during the full exam.
WHAT AREAS ARE TREATED BY A FAT-REDUCTION INJECTION TREATMENT?
Fat-dissolving injections are most commonly used to eliminate fat accumulated under the chin as a result of ageing. Since fat can accumulate in other areas as well, including underarms, bra roll and abdomen, these areas can be considered as well. The fat in these areas can be as unpleasant as double chin and eliminating specific area with diet and exercise can be very difficult if not impossible. Talk to Rebecca during your consultation whether fat-reducing injections might be beneficial for the management of accumulated fat in other areas that concern you, or if there are other options that are more suitable.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FAT-DISSOLVING INJECTIONS?
One of the most important benefits of fat-dissolving injection treatment is achieving results that delay or completely avoid surgery. Other benefits include:
- Visibly reduced fat under the chin
- Non-surgical chin sculpting
- No incision and no scaring after the treatment
- No anesthesia and associated risks
- Natural treatment using deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by our body
- Fairly fast procedure
- Minimal downtime after the procedure
- Permanent results
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN FAT-DISSOLVING INJECTIONS PROCEDURE?
Fat-dissolving injection procedure is non-invasive, lasting no longer than one hour. Our injector Rebecca will first numb the area that is to be treated and mark the area where the tissue will be injected. She will inject between 30 and 50 injections evenly across the treatment area to ensure natural-looking results.
You can expect mild soreness and swelling in the treatment area after the procedure. It is normal and temporary and will not last more than a few days. Icing the area is usually enough to reduce the discomfort. If you really need it, you can take some mild over the counter pain medication. These symptoms are not likely to keep you from your family, work and social activities.
Commonly, clients with mild or moderate amount of under-chin fat require two treatments performed in separate visits four to six weeks apart to achieve satisfactory results. For those with more severe symptoms, our doctor might recommend additional treatments. It is important to remember that the results of the fat dissolving injection procedure are permanent. Once the fat is gone, it will not regenerate. The post-treatment results show gradually and the full reduction of submental fat can be expected in about three months after the last treatment.
