The treatment you’re curious about and find the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Q: What are double chin fat injections?


A: Double chin injections, also known as Kybella or deoxycholic acid injections, are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that helps reduce submental fat, commonly known as a double chin. It involves injecting a solution containing deoxycholic acid. This naturally occurring substance helps break down fat, into the fat cells beneath the chin to destroy them, resulting in a more defined jawline and a more youthful appearance.



Double chin injections use deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile acid, to break down the fat cells beneath the chin. When injected into the submental fat, deoxycholic acid disrupts the cell membranes of the fat cells, causing them to rupture and be absorbed by the body's natural metabolic processes. Over time, the treated fat cells are eliminated, resulting in a more contoured jawline and a reduction in the appearance of a double chin.

Q: Who is a good candidate for double chin injections? 


Good candidates for double chin injections are individuals with moderate to severe submental fat, commonly referred to as a double chin, and looking for a non-surgical option to reduce the excess fat in that area. Ideal candidates should have good overall health and realistic expectations about the treatment results. It is essential to consult with our qualified healthcare professional to determine if you are a suitable candidate for double chin injections based on your individual health and aesthetic goals.

Q: How long does it take to see results from double chin injections?

Results from double chin injections can vary depending on the individual and the specific treatment plan. Generally, some improvement may be noticeable after the first treatment, but optimal results are usually achieved after a series of treatments, typically ranging from 2 to 4 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. It may take several weeks or months for the treated fat cells to be fully eliminated by the body, and final results can continue to improve over time.

Q: What are the potential side effects of double chin injections?

Like any medical procedure, double chin injections can have potential side effects. Common side effects may include temporary swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days to a week. More serious side effects are rare but can include nerve injury, difficulty swallowing, or an uneven smile. It's important to discuss potential risks and side effects with a qualified healthcare professional before undergoing double chin injections.

Q: How long do the results of a double chin injection last? 

The results of double chin injections can be long-lasting, as the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed and eliminated by the body. Once the desired results are achieved, additional treatments are typically not necessary. However, it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid significant weight gain, as new fat cells can develop in the treated area and potentially impact the results. It's best to consult with a qualified healthcare professional for personalized information on how long the results may last based on your individual circumstances.

Q: Is the procedure painful?

The discomfort associated with double chin injections is generally minimal, as a numbing agent is often applied to the treatment area prior to the injections. However, some patients may experience mild to moderate discomfort during the injections, which is usually well-tolerated. After the treatment, there may be some soreness, tenderness, or swelling in the treated area, but these symptoms are temporary and typically resolve on their own within a few days to a week.
