Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself only to be confronted with the appearance of a dreaded double chin? The smallest amount of fat can dramatically change your appearance, no matter how hard you try to tilt your head at the right angle, or hunt around for the best light possible. Even worse, chin fat can affect anyone regardless of size, and is notoriously resistant to exercise, which means doing away with it is challenging. Or is it?
Chin sculpting treatments are making it simple to say goodbye to chubby chins. Whether you’re looking to reduce a double chin or firm your jawline, this treatment provides the ideal solution.
What is Chin Sculpting?
Chin sculpting makes it easy to banish double chins and improve your profile. The safe and effective injectable treatment dissolves fat and firm the skin around your chin for a more flattering jawline. Best of all, it boasts visible results in as little as two to four weeks with no surgery and minimal downtime. Its effects are also long-lasting, meaning your enhanced appearance will stick around.
What are the Benefits of Chin Sculpting?
By reducing fat and firming skin, chin sculpting can offer multiple benefits. As well banishing double chins, this treatment can also help create chiselled jaws and achieve more flattering side profiles.
Other benefits of chin sculpting include a short treatment time, minimal downtime, and long-lasting results.
How Does Chin Sculpting Work?
Chin sculpting works by using multiple injections of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. This acid occurs naturally in our bodies and helps the digestive system to break down dietary fat. When injected into the chin, the synthetic version works similarly to dissolve and permanently destroy fat cells in the area.
Chin sculpting is relatively painless. When injected below the skin, the solution can feel quite hot, causing moderate discomfort. However, topical numbing creams and ice packs can be used to prevent and reduce this discomfort, which should pass before you leave the clinic.
To achieve the best results with chin sculpting, a minimum of two treatments, spaced six weeks apart, is recommended. Treatments are typically an hour long, allowing 10-15 minutes for injections, and up to 50 minutes for consultation, preparation, the application of a numbing cream, and photos.
Following the treatment, you will likely experience swelling, heat and redness in the treated area. Although it may feel unusual, these effects are normal. In fact, immediately after treatment, swelling is ideal as the inflammation will trigger collagen production, which helps the skin to tighten. Bruising is also possible for up to three weeks following the treatment and should be kept in mind when arranging your appointment.
Although you can return to work the day after treatment, you will need to avoid strenuous activity for a few days.
Is Chin Sculpting Safe?
After undergoing rigorous testing and clinical trials, chin sculpting injections have been approved as safe by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA ) in Australia and the FDA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US. However, as with all treatments, it’s still essential to visit a professional clinic to ensure your safety and the best results.
Chin Sculpting vs Liposuction
If you want to eliminate fat from your chin, it’s important to understand your options. While chin sculpting utilises injections to dissolve the fat, liposuction removes this fat surgically. Liposuction also requires a longer recovery time, making chin sculpting a more desirable option those who’d prefer minimal downtime.
Overall, chin sculpting can be an excellent option for anyone looking to firm their jawline and achieve a more flattering appearance. It can banish double chins and improve side profiles with ease and efficiency, making you ready for those inevitable selfies.
