Double chin is a submental fat that happens when a layer of fat forms below our chin. It is often associated with people who are overweight but also genetics or excess skin laxity resulting from aging. 

Many of us are looking for methods to minimize, dissolve, or blast away undesired fats below our chin. Injectables and other non-surgical ways to improve our looks become more recommended by dermatologists.

In this article, we will discuss what you need to know about Double Chin Injections (Deoxycholic Acid injections) and how it works.

Is it Safe?

Non-surgical chin lift or fat-dissolving injections contain Deoxycholic Acid which naturally occurs in the body. The risks are low if you are being treated by a registered health professional.

The possible side effect is slight bruising, and a possibility that will make the side of your mouth temporarily weaken due to a small chance of tentatively affecting the marginal branch of our facial nerve.

Does it hurt?

Yes, it does. Everyone handles the pain differently. Generally, a numbing cream is applied about 30 minutes before your session to ease the pain and lessens the possibility of bruising. 

Is it permanent?

Double chin injections are long-lasting, and it stays permanent once the fat cell is suppressed. However, there is a possibility that it can still get bigger if there are residual fat cells. If you gain weight, other fat cells can still produce a double chin.
