FAT DISSOLVING INJECTIONS
BENEFITS OF FAT DISSOLVING INJECTIONS
LOWER FACE FAT
HOW IT WORKS
Fat dissolving injections, often utilizing the prescription medication Belkyra®, involve the injection of small amounts of the solution into targeted areas of unwanted fat, such as the double chin and lower face. This is typically done using a fine needle. The key ingredient in this solution is deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally occurring in the body. Deoxycholic acid disrupts the integrity of fat cell membranes, causing them to break down.
Over time, as fat cells are gradually destroyed through the body's natural metabolic processes, they are removed via the lymphatic system. This gradual process results in a more contoured neck profile and jawline, reducing the appearance of a "double chin."
Multiple treatment sessions (usually ranging from 2 to 6 sessions) are typically required to effectively improve neck and jawline contour and achieve optimal results. The specific number of sessions may vary depending on the individual and the extent of the treatment area.
