As we age, the muscles of our chin area begin to weaken and lose elasticity, often leading to sagging and the appearance of a double chin. Double chin treatments can be used to remove the adipose tissue and fat deposits from under the chin and recreate a defined jawline where definition was once lost.
Double chin treatments are becoming an increasingly popular option to minimise the appearance of a double chin. They offer permanent results without the cost or recovery time associated with plastic surgery.
At Nitai, your double chin treatment will only be administered by a qualified doctor. During treatment, Dr Singh will administer several deoxycholic acid injections to break down and destroy the fat cells in the chin. The fat is then absorbed by the body, resulting in a visible improvement in the chin profile.
Once destroyed, these fat cells will not return. Consequently, the results provided by a double chin treatment are permanent.
Double chin treatments are customised to suit each patient’s anatomy. Up to 6 treatments may be given, although visible results will likely be noticeable in 2 to 4 treatments.
As we get older, our chin muscles weaken and lose elasticity. If water retention occurs or fat is added, these muscles are unable to retain their shape, leading the the appearance of a double chin. Double chin treatments are suitable for those who want to minimise the look of a double chin, restore definition to the chin and create a more defined jawline.
