Bothered by that excess fatty pocket underneath your chin? Ever wanted to remove it for good? We are here to help!
Fat dissolving injections use a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid, to aid in the absorption of fat. When it is injected into the tissue below the chin, it disrupts the fat cell membrane. As a result, the cells breakdown and release their fatty contents. The body then naturally metabolises and excretes this fat.
Is it painful? The treatment is uncomfortable, but we do use topical anesthetics as well as an injectable anesthetic when we are performing the treatment. There is some discomfort felt after the procedure also as the anesthetics wear off.
Does it cause swelling? Yes it does cause swelling from the time of treatment which can last anywhere from 2 - 6 weeks post treatment.
How long until I can see a result? You will see results after your first treatment after 6 - 8 weeks. But you will need anywhere from 2 - 6 treatments for optimal results.
Are there risks? There are risks involved with all cosmetic injectables services, in which your injector will discuss with you on the day of your treatment. The most common risks for fat dissolving injections is bruising and swelling.
How long does the treatment take? Altogether with your consultation with both your Registered Nurse and protocol Doctor as well as the injections, your appointment time will take 30 - 45 minutes. The injections themselves only take 15 - 20 minutes.
Who is suitable for this treatment? Fat Dissolving Injections are suitable for both men and women over the age of 18. Ideal candidates will have to have excess fat under their chin, which could either be from weight gain or genetics.
