Many of us acquire double chins genetically or due to changes in our lifestyle. A lot of people find a double chin frustrating as it can make the overall appearance of the face look less appealing.
Double chin injections are one of the latest treatment trends that have completely revolutionalised skin treatment practice, creating a solution for those patients who do not want to remove their excess chin by way of incision. In the past, there’s been a need for surgical intervention to remove double chin through performing either liposuction or a neck lift which are both complex and invasive procedures. Today, it can be easily done with double chin injections which are deoxycholic acid-based treatments. The way it works is that deoxycholic acid treatments, also known as Kybella treatments, are injected in targeted areas underneath your chin to eliminate fat cells that make up the excess fat. Patients can be given around 20 small injections within 10 minutes, each injection containing 0.2ml of deoxycholic acid and spaced out over 1cm intervals across the skin underneath your chin. The process is quick, natural, safe and, most importantly, it gives you permanent, well-shaped face contour and sleeker, more defined jawline.
