Dr Miriam Nicola will be performing all fat dissolving double chin injections. The fat dissolving injections are effective in treating fullness under the chin and the upper neck area. You will have an initial consultation first to establish a treatment plan and fees schedule. Your second appointment will be the treatment, and this takes about 20 minutes. The treatment involves at least 2 sessions that is spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
To treat submental fat with fat dissolving injections we place a template on the skin and apply water. This leaves small dots on the skin as a guide for where to inject. We clean the skin with chlorhexidine before placing small injections into the submental fat. The treatment requires approximately 20 small injections.
Fat dissolving injections contain deoxycholic acid and helps absorb fat. The product is injected into the fat in the double chin area and permanently destroys the fat cells by a process known as adipocytolysis. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, they cannot store fat again.
If you are sore after the treatment you can apply an ice pack for pain relief.
The best candidate is an adult 18 years or older with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. You might not be a good candidate if you have had or are planning to have facial surgery, if you have trouble swallowing, are pregnant or nursing, or have an infection or medical condition in or near the planned injection site.
