The double chin or upper neck fullness is an area that is universally disliked. It may be a result of weight gain, neck platysmal muscle bands or an uneven distribution of adipose deposits. Stubborn neck fullness can be present even when the body is quite slim and toned.
The fat dissolving injections are effective in treating fullness under the chin and the upper neck area. The treatment constitutes of De-oxycholic acid and involves at least 2 sessions that is spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
It is performed at the practice and involves a series of small injections under the skin area around the neck. The fatty deposits are ‘melted’ away at a gradual pace. After the first treatment, there may be minor swelling for the first week, but after the subsequent treatments, the dissolution of the fatty deposits becomes more apparent and collagen deposition is triggered, forming a firmer, toned neck region.
Only trained physicians may perform this procedure.
