“I LOVE my double chin!” said NO one, ever!!
Are you self-conscious about your side profile or dislike your chin in photos? Or do you ever look at your chin and wish you could just dissolve that little pocket of fat below it?
If so then this treatment might be the one for you!
Due to regulations around S4 prescription medication we cannot name this product, but the active ingredient is synthesized deoxycholic acid – a naturally occurring compound in bile that helps to break down dietary fat. When injected below the chin it reduces the fat permanently, resulting in a more contoured neck profile and jawline.
The MRI image below shows the fat reduction post treatment.
The actual treatment consists of a number of injections, customized to suit your anatomy, and once the area is numbed, only takes a few minutes. Dr Ansulette uses both topical and local anaesthetic to ensure that the injections cause minimal discomfort during treatment, but the area will be swollen and tender for a few days post treatment. Which is why it’s perfect for those working from home at the moment!
Most candidates will need 2 to 4 treatments spaced at least 8 weeks apart. Results for most will only become visible after the second treatment, so when considering costs, do keep this in mind.
The number of treatments you will need depend on the size of the area and the extent of the fullness under your chin. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected. Those with good skin quality and mild to moderate submental fullness are the best candidates for this treatment.
So… “If you can pinch it – singe it!”
**For those with loose or saggy skin (rather than fat) – HIFU might be a better treatment option..
