Searching for a non-surgical fix for a double chin? Fat dissolving injections might just be your answer. The treatment involves injecting a prescription medicine containing deoxycholic acid (a synthesised version of a bile acid your body makes naturally) into a pouch of fat. The compound then breaks down the fat cells which the body metabolises. This treatment is mostly done under the chin and around the jawline but can be used elsewhere.
Keen? Here's what you need to know
The treatment involves administering a series of fat dissolving injections (usually between 20 and 40) to the area of concern. Although the area is numbed beforehand, the procedure can still be unpleasant. Afterwards the area swells up for about a week, which is why this treatment’s one we recommend during cooler weather. Best results occur with at least two treatments, spaced 6 weeks apart.
