Fat Dissolving Injections

Few signs of facial ageing are more concerning than the double chin. The cause behind this facial ageing feature is “submental fat,” fat which collects in the soft tissues under the jaw and which — until recently — typically involved surgery to treat. Today, patients have a safe, effective and long-lasting way to treat this problem and achieve permanent results. Fat-dissolving injections, which you can have at Kaya Cosmedica, liquefy the targeted fat, allowing your lymphatic system to expel it safely from the body. Since your body will not regenerate these fat cells, you’ll never have to worry about this troublesome issue again so long as you maintain a stable and healthy weight.

What is a fat-dissolving injection treatment?

Fat-dissolving injections use a naturally occurring substance in the body called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is an acid responsible for helping the body absorb fats in the gastrointestinal system. When this acid is injected into other fat stores in the body, it has the same effect, destroying the fat cells and allowing your body’s lymphatic system to carry away the remnants gradually and naturally as it would any other waste product. Fat cells do not regenerate; so once the fat cells have been comprised, they will not return, leaving you to enjoy improved tone and slimness under the chin permanently.

You will have the best results from a fat-dissolving injection if you have a reasonable amount of fullness in the under-jaw area, and your skin has good elasticity overall. If you have excessively loose skin or very poor skin elasticity, you may be better served by other treatments, such as neck lift, but a fat-dissolving injection may still be considered as part of a comprehensive course of treatment. You may also benefit from other alternatives which you can discuss with Dr PK, after a full exam has been performed, during your consultation.

What areas does a fat-reduction injection treat?

Fat-dissolving injections primarily treat fat that has accumulated under the chin as a result of the natural ageing process. However, fat can accumulate in other areas as well, such as the bra roll, underarms and abdomen. These areas of fat can cause just as much concern, and they can be difficult to manage through diet and exercise alone since these methods don’t always allow you to target the specific body areas you want. Fat-dissolving injections have been shown to provide benefits to areas besides the chin, so talk to your doctor about whether this method of treatment is the right one to manage these additional concerns or to identify other treatment options that can help.

The Benefits of Fat-dissolving Treatments

Fat-dissolving injections have many advantages; one of the most important is the ability to delay surgery or avoid it altogether. Their benefits also include:

  • Visible improvements to stubborn fat in the chin area
  • Non-surgical chin sculpting
  • No incisions or scarring after treatment
  • No anaesthesia or risks related to anaesthesia
  • A natural treatment which uses deoxycholic acid, a substance produced by the body
  • A relatively quick treatment
  • No Minimal downtime after your procedure
  • Injections product permanent results

Fat-dissolving Treatments Offer Permanent Results in a Non-invasive Procedure

Fat-dissolving injections are a non-invasive procedure that is typically quick to perform lasts no more than an hour. Your doctor will topically numb the area to be treated — mark where you will have your injections and then administer anywhere between 30 and 50 small injections across the treatment area to ensure a smooth and natural-looking result. After your injections, there will minor swelling and redness.

Mild swelling and soreness in the treatment area is normal and temporary and should last no more than a few days. Icing the area regularly afterward is usually sufficient to manage these side effects. If needed, over-the-counter pain medication can be taken for discomfort. These symptoms rarely limit individuals from family, work or social requirements.

Typically, individuals with mild to moderate symptoms will require two injection treatments performed during separate office visits spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve their desired results. If you have more severe symptoms, then you may need additional treatment sessions. However, once those results are achieved, they are permanent, and you will need no further sessions. Your body will not regenerate fat cells where you have been treated. Results appear gradually with the full reduction in submental fat typically apparent around three months after your last treatment.
