With many people looking for a popular injectable treatment to get rid of their excess chin fat, a lot of people are now wondering are Fat Dissolving Injections Permanent? There’s a lot of interesting things to learn about this treatment, so let’s look at this pertinent question, and some other frequently asked questions for double chin injections.
The active ingredient in double chin injections is a synthetic version of a molecule found in the body naturally; this molecule’s function is to break down fat cells. When the injectable comes into contact with fat cells, it disrupts the cell membranes and destroys the fat cells contained in the area of injection. This treatment was first approved for use by the FDA in 2015, making it one of the more modern treatments using advances in science to treat common cosmetic concerns.
The results of chin fat dissolving injections generally start to become noticeable after around four to six weeks. As any swelling starts to fade you will begin to notice the changes occurring earlier on, but by this point you will have a far better idea of your results, so don’t worry too much if things seem a little underwhelming the first week or so after your session as swelling may be masking the effects as they occur.
Double chin injections can involve some pain, but this is generally more during the recovery phase of your treatment. During the procedure a local anaesthetic is usually applied to numb the area during the treatment, this makes the injections a lot more comfortable, so you will typically barely feel them being applied other than the change in pressure. After your treatment has been performed, some swelling and redness are to be expected while the treatment goes about destroying the fat cells, this is a good indication the treatment is working.
Once you have reached your desired goals as far as reducing the volume of excess fatty tissue in your chin, you are unlikely to require treatments in the future. The fat that comes in contact with the injections is permanently destroyed, resulting in these cells unable to store or accumulate fat again in the future. Reaching your desired goal may take a few sessions, but considering this is generally a process you only have to go through once, this is quite reasonable for most people. Some people may find results after three sessions that they are happy with, and some may require around six. To get a better estimate, speak to an experienced Cosmetic Doctor, and they will be able to give you a reasonable estimate of what to expect after assessing the level of excess fat in your chin, how it is distributed around the area, and other variables.
Double chin injections are non-surgical; this helps to minimise a lot of the downtime typically associated with surgical procedures; however, there are still some things to consider regarding your recovery post-treatment. You may have some pain, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness to deal with, it’s common to at least have some of these side effects, though typically they are quite tolerable. There is usually no real requirement for downtime, with minor side effects generally passing in a week or so. There are more serious potential side effects, while these are far less common, consult your practitioner to ensure you understand all the potential risks involved.
