Injectable Treatments for a "Double Chin"
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 removed through the body's normal metabolic system. A series of treatments with deoxycholic acid can be an effective non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of a "double chin".
