Under Chin Fat Reduction
This is an injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin and is Health Canada approved. This procedure is for you if you have fat under your chin, that you want reduced. It can be done successfully without surgery.
The main active ingredient is a synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that assists in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. During the twenty-minute treatment multiple small injections will be injected into the chin fat. These injections destroy the fat cells and results include less fullness under the chin. Patients can have up to six sessions to reach their desired level of success. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store more fat.

How it works
FDA-Approved Injectable Treatment to Destroy Under Chin Fat Cells
This treatment is injected into the fat under your chin by a series of injections. The body’s own healing systems will clear the debris away. It induces an inflammatory reaction so each patient responds differently. However, some patients may need 2 treatments and some 4 to 6 to obtain the desired results. Treatments last 30 to 40 minutes and are best spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.
This treatment doesn’t deprive you of your daily activities but you will experience swelling after treatment, so you may not wish to go straight back to work. Your double chin will get approximately twice as big for at least a couple of days, and remain swollen for up to 14 days. This swelling is actually crucial to your result. It is a sign of successful treatment and helps the healing process in the area.
I love my results, I definitely recommend these procedures and will be back for more.

Your Guide to Under Chin Fat Reduction
Before the Treatment
After you have been fully consulted and have signed your treatment consent forms, you will be asked to take a series of photos. These photos will be essential to help gauge the progression of your results as every client is different. An anaesthetic cream may be applied but most patients find the treatment tolerable without it. To decrease the risk of bruising, avoid taking aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil and blood thinning medication 2-3 days before your treatment.
During the Treatment
The treatment is administered across sessions to help you lose your double chin.The treatment requires multiple injections, (20-50) into the fat layers under the chin and is a quick procedure (approximately 30 - 40 minutes) with minimal discomfort. Once injected, the product will begin breaking down the fat in the affected area. It is able to do this because it’s composed of a synthetic version of the natural compounds in your body that break down fat.
After the Treatment
After your treatment, some patients may experience the following common side effects:
- Areas of stiffness or hardness in the treated area
