A long, graceful neck can be a sign of youth and femininity – and for men, a strong jawline is the cornerstone of a sharp, masculine appearance. But as we age, a combination of increased skin laxity and stubborn fat can lead to the appearance of a persistent double chin.
How to non-surgically treat a double-chin
A new injectable treatment composed of deoxycholic acid that helps reduce moderate to severe pockets of fat below the chin is available. Over the course of just a few treatments, fat cells in the treated area are eliminated for a more youthful look and slimmer neck contour.
How does the treatment work?
The treatment is specially formulated with deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body to aid in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. When injected directly into the fat beneath your chin, it effectively destroys the fat cells it comes in contact with, rendering them unable to store or accumulate fat in the future.
After you and Dr. Wadhera have discussed your concerns and designed a treatment plan to address them, the treatment is injected into the areas under your chin. The treatment should be comfortable, though you may experience some tenderness, swelling, and bruising around the injection sites for the first couple days.
While every patient is different, most are pleased with their results within just two to four treatments spaced one month apart.
Results will vary from patient to patient and do not reflect the outcome of your surgery; nor does Dr Wadhera guarantee specific results.
