Non-surgical treatment for double chin

We offer fat dissolving injectables as a non-surgical treatment for double chin

A double chin can be caused by a combination of factors. While a double chin is most commonly associated with excessive weight gain, factors such as genetics, age, posture and diet can also contribute to having a double chin.

What causes a double chin?

A double chin may be caused by a number of factors. It is most commonly associated with excessive weight gain, although several other factors can also contribute. These factors include genetics, age, posture, and diet. Many people find that they are unable to get rid of a double chin by means of exercise and diet. For this reason, surgery or dissolving injectable may be recommended.

Treatment options for getting rid of double chin

From face masks to daily exercise and diet there are plenty of at-home remedies that have been suggested over the years. And for some people, these may even work.

However, many people find that no matter how hard they exercise the submental fat (double chin) does not go away. Additionally, if the problem is a genetic one then it is unlikely that diet and exercise would work in the first place.

For those who have tried diet and exercise and it hasn’t worked, there are plenty of options available to you. The two most successful options are surgery or injections.

The benefit of injectables is the lack of surgery and all the things associated with surgery, like down time, hospital stay and recovery.

Of course, an obvious benefit of surgery is that it’s one procedure and the issue is resolved.

Why get surgery when you can get fat dissolving injections?

Each approach to treating double chin has its pros and cons. Each treatment option has a disclaimer attached about possible side effects[1].

When it comes to treating double chin, wouldn’t you prefer a discreet treatment? A treatment that doesn’t involve having your face bandaged for a week or more? A treatment that will make the change slow and subtle?

Áda Aesthetic Medicine now offers three  non-surgical treatment options to help achieve a more contoured, slim facial appearance.

  1. Neuromodulator injections
  2. Tripollar RF energy device
  3. Fat dissolving injections

Fat dissolving injections for treating double chin

Áda Aesthetic Medicine now offers fat dissolving injections. This is a process of injecting a fat dissolving solution into the fatty tissue of your double chin. Then over a few weeks, the fat will dissolve.

To achieve the best results, most patients require two to four treatment sessions. However, individual results vary and every patient reacts to treatment differently. Treatment typically takes around 15 minutes and is accompanied by a small amount of discomfort and some swelling.However, this discomfort does not tend to last very long.

It’s probably worth noting that this treatment can permanently remove the fat in the treated area. It’s also worth noting that if you don’t go to an experienced aesthetic physician or doctor, you run the risk of experiencing the more damaging side effects of this treatment.

What are the risks of this fat dissolving injection?

Not getting this treatment performed by a qualified medical professional who has knowledge of the facial anatomy could cause you months of problems.

If not placed properly, this treatment can lead to temporary paralysis for up to 8 weeks. During this time you will have to put up with imbalance to your lower lip movement as well as asymmetry.

Non-invasive solution for treating double chin

If you are looking for a non-invasive way to get rid of that double chin, which has already proven to be successful for patients around the world, Áda Aesthetic Medicine can help you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does chin fat dissolving last?

The results of fat dissolving injections for chin fat are generally long-lasting but not permanent. While the treated fat cells are destroyed and eliminated, new fat cells can form over time due to factors like weight gain or ageing. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, is important for prolonging the results. It’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for a more accurate assessment of the expected duration of the results based on your individual circumstances.

What is the downtime for fat dissolving injections?

The downtime associated with fat dissolving injections is usually minimal. You can typically resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment. However, common side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection site may occur. These side effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days to a couple of weeks. It’s always a good idea to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your healthcare professional to optimise healing and minimise discomfort.

How long do fat dissolving injections take to work on a double chin?

Typically, you may start to see some initial improvements within a few weeks after the fat dissolving injections. However, it’s important to note that significant and noticeable results usually take several weeks to several months to become apparent. The exact timeline can vary from person to person, as individual responses to the treatment can differ. It’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional who can provide more specific information based on your unique situation.

[1] Disclaimers usually point out the obvious need to seek advice from a qualified medical professional about the efficacy of treatment for your particular situation, health and body type. It is always important when considering treatment to seek a second opinion, and to ensure you understand exactly what results a treatment can and cannot achieve.
