What is Double Chin Fat Dissolving
It’s not uncommon for excess fat to build up in key areas as we get older – the chin is one of these areas. It’s not always likely that stubborn pockets of fat will respond to diet and exercise, which can be incredibly frustrating.
Instead of going straight to surgery, there is the option of using fat dissolving injections to rectify the problem. This non-surgical solution helps get rid of moderate amounts of excess fat in a short space of time.
Fat dissolving injections contain a specialised blend of cosmetic ingredients that get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that have become noticeable.
What to Expect
Before treatment can commence, a consultation will be required. During this time, we will look at your medical history and find out more about your specific concerns and expectations.
A numbing agent will be applied to the treated area before treatment to eliminate any potential discomfort. An anaesthetic isn’t necessary though – it all depends on your preferences. If you choose to forgo the numbing agent, you can expect a mild burning sensation during and after treatment.
During treatment, a series of small injections are used to dissolve the walls of the unwanted fat cells in order to reduce their size. The unwanted cells are then naturally eliminated by the body.
While there will be some mild swelling, redness and bruising after treatment, you can return to your normal activities.
Most patients require more than one treatment to achieve their desired outcome, with each treatment taking place four to six weeks after the last.

About the treatment

Ideal Candidates for Fat Dissolving Injections
This treatment won’t be the right option for all patients. For one, it is not a weight loss treatment – patients need to be close to or have achieved their ideal weight. The point of this treatment is to eliminate small pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise. In order to treat larger areas of unwanted fat, surgical procedures such as liposuction will need to be considered. Pregnant women cannot receive fat dissolving injections.
Fat Dissolving Injection Results
Results will differ for everyone. The faster your body metabolises the unwanted fat cells, the faster you will see results. It’s also very likely that you will only see a noticeable difference after two to three treatments. To speed up the progress of your treatments, we can also look at adding additional treatments to your treatment plan – these options can be discussed during your consultation. Another way to accelerate your results is to follow a healthy eating plan and exercise on a regular basis. This will help speed up your metabolism, ensuring your body can successfully eliminate the unwanted cells.
