Submental Fat Reduction or “Double Chin”
According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 68% of people said they are bothered by submental fullness.* Therefore, Dr. Jenny and her staff of injectors use a product called deoxycholic acid to non-surgically treat submental fullness, or otherwise known as “double chin.”
With a series of injections, excess fat is destroyed from under the chin/neck, resulting in a permanent, more youthful facial profile. Depending on your goals, we also offer ThermiTight, a minimally invasive option for fat reduction and skin tightening under the chin.
Deoxycholic acid can also be injected into other areas of the body to reduce fat and tighten skin. These areas include back of thighs, “bra fat”, above the knees, etc. A series of treatments may be necessary to acheive desired goals.
