Injectable Treatments for a "Double Chin"
Many people are bothered by a small amount of excess fat under the chin. Often, diet and weight loss have no effect on this fat pocket, and until recently surgical treatments were the only option for those who wanted to remove this extra fat.
Deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that is synthesized in a laboratory for cosmetic use. It has been approved by both Health Canada and the FDA for the treatment of "submental fat" (excess fat under the chin). When injected into fat, it dissolves it and permanently destroys excess fat cells. The dissolved fat is then safely removed through the body's normal metabolic system.
A series of treatments with deoxycholic acid can be an effective non-surgical way to significantly reduce the appearance of a "double chin". For more information on this treatment, or to book an appointment, contact us.
