We want to put your mind at ease by letting you know that this is an injectable treatment. It does not require any form of surgery. While you may not like your double chin, you may not be willing to undergo surgery in order to get rid of it. The active ingredient in this treatment is deoxycholic acid. This substance is naturally found in the intestinal tract. When you consume dietary fat, this acid is what helps your body to break down the fat. Although the treatment uses a synthetic form of this acid, it has the same effect on fat.
It is actually able to break down the walls of fat cells. As the fat cells become damaged, the body begins to remove them. This is not an immediate process. It usually takes a couple of months for the body to completely remove the damaged cells. However, the result is that a person is able to get rid of the fat under their chin with some injections as opposed to surgery.
Are the Results Permanent?
Yes. Since the acid in the product is going to rupture the walls of the fat cells and the body removes the damaged fat cells, they will be gone for good. It is good for our patients to know that they should maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to prevent the remaining fat cells from growing in size. What is great, though, it is that having this treatment performed makes a person more resistant to gaining fat in this area. This treatment has received approval by the FDA in order to remove double chins. This gives our patients confidence knowing that it is safe.
