Double Chin Injectable Treatment
About Submental Fullness
Do you have some extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called submental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin.”
Bothered by Submental Fullness?
You’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS): 67% of people surveyed said they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin*
In fact, the survey results showed that people are just as bothered by submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.
How Does It Work?
The active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, the deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How Many Treatment Will I Need?
Dr Hugo Pin will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
What Are The Possible Side Effects?
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. These are not all of the possible side effects. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area or for medical advice about side effects.
How Long Will Results Last?
When injected into fat under the chin, the Deoxycholic acid causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
Cost: $2600 for the 2 first treatment. Following treatments cost $1100 each.
