fat dissolving treatments
double chin & fat dissolving treatments
This is a unique treatment in the world of cosmetic injectables. Fat-dissolving treatments are most commonly used for the double chin area but may also be performed for the jowls and the bra fat (front and back).
Packages are available as a minimum of two sessions - each session is performed eight weeks apart. Depending on the size of the area, you'll need two to four sessions for the best results.
Unlike with anti-wrinkle or filler injections, the results aren't quick but are gradual and cumulative so patience is needed. The more sessions you do, the slimmer the area will look. Most importantly the results are permanent. This means that after the sessions are completed you will not need to do fat dissolving again.
what is a double chin?
A slim neck and tight jaw line are strongly perceived as signs of health and beauty. Whilst a 'double chin' is more common in people with a higher body mass index, many of us have small pocket of fat under the jaw even when the rest of our body is slim. So a double chin doesn't necessarily mean that you're overweight. .
Using the scale below, you can get some idea of what you'll look like as treatments tend to improve people by one grade. (i.e from a moderate double chin to a mild double chin)

how can we dissolve fat?
The treatment literally destroys fat cells using an injectable medication. The product contains the same substance produced by our bodies in the process of breaking down fat molecules in our diet.
Fat dissolving injections are used only for for discrete and smaller areas of fat such as the double chin, bra strap or inner thigh gap. The treatments work by breaking down the membranes of the fat cells, leading to a permanent destruction of the fat cells. The results are long-lasting and are comparable to liposuction - we now have surgery in a syringe. Even better, the treatment tightens the skin so you won't have loose skin unlike with liposuction.
