While exercising and dieting are good ways to promote your overall health, some areas of fat tend to linger regardless of body weight. Sometimes, fat pads under the chin are related to hormones or heredity rather than body weight, meaning you may need a little help beyond exercising and dieting for desired results. At the De Pieri Clinic we offer an injectable method that can reduce the appearance of your double chin.
What is used for the injection?
The active ingredient that is injected is phosphatidylcholine. It is used as a non-surgical treatment in body contouring including under the chin. When injected, it destroys fat cells and your body naturally excretes them. After 2-4 sessions, patients notice reduction in fat deposits. This is an excellent way to achieve a more contoured jawline and a slimmer facial structure.
What is the downtime?
After the injection, the area will become swollen, but it typically subsides after 5-10 days.
