Reducing a double chin
Aqualyx® fat dissolving injections can be used on the face or body to reduce stubborn pockets of fat which are resistant to diet and exercise. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid which is very similar to the product currently available in the US under the brand name Kybella.
Aqualyx® breaks down fat in a controlled manner that your body then safely removes through the lymphatic system. During this time you will experience swelling in the treatment area for three to ten days. Between one and four treatments are required 4-6 weeks apart, depending on the area being treated.
At Story our expertise is in facial aesthetics and so we love using this treatment to shrink double chins and improve jawline definition. Small amounts can even be used in the cheek area to slim the face and reduce the appearance of jowling. For best results we recommend having fat dissolving injections followed by fine detail sculpting of the chin and jawline with filler.
Our practitioners will examine you with care and explain whether a single or combination treatment approach is best. They will also advise you on the expected social down-time (recovery time) for your particular treatment.
