A double chin can occur at any age, and it’s not exclusive to people who are overweight. The reason people end up with this hanging cheek of sub-mental fat is often due to genetics or excess skin laxity which can come with age.
The Aqualyx is injected into the fatty tissue, it surrounds the fat cells and destroys them with its affect of inflammation, created by the body safely as waste. This can be used to reduce fat cells in multiple areas of the face such as double chin and fat around the jaw.
During each session, the topical numbing cream is applied on the targeted area and patients receive multiple fat dissolving injections (Aqualyx) in problematic areas around the chin and neck. In this procedure maximum dose is used. This takes 15 minutes. The number of injections and sessions depend on the severity of the problem.
It usually requires at least two or three sessions 6-8 week apart. Swelling can be occur for 2-6 weeks.
The result can be seen in 6-8 weeks and it is permanent.
