3 Effective Ways To Reduce A Double Chin Without Resorting To Surgery

1. Remove A Double Chin Permanently With Fat Dissolving Injections

Fat Dissolving injections are the only non-surgical solution to reduce fatty deposits under the chin which gives us the age-old problem of the double chin or what is sometimes referred to as “turkey neck”. At Harbour Medispa Hamilton we have been using this treatment for many years with excellent results! It is quick, relatively painless, and has an almost 100% patient satisfaction rate.

This TGA-approved product is administered in clinic after a thorough consultation with your cosmetic practitioners to see if you are a suitable candidate.  The medicine contains a substance called deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body.  This acid destroys fat cells by breaking down the fat cell membrane wall. The product is directly injected into the area underneath the chin with little to no pain as the area is pre-numbered with anesthetic cream and ice.  This revolutionary treatment takes less than 10 minutes to perform in the clinic and a very fine needle is used. The fat cells rupture and swell and the body flushes them out of the body through normal processes.

2 to 4 treatments are normally recommended for the most optimal results for each patient, depending on the amount of fat present.

Benefits Of Fat Dissolving Injections

– Non-surgical treatment
– Safer and less invasive than full surgeries
– Minimal discomfort
– Minimal recovery time
– Affordable and more cost-effective

This treatment is suitable for patients who are healthy and already at a fairly stable weight, and who are NOT severely overweight or obese. Fat-dissolving injections are designed to target specific and localised deposits of fat.  These are problem areas that patients have been otherwise unsuccessful in removing on their own through diet and exercise. 

2. Try Face Yoga To Tighten The Area

Regular practice of doing a set of face yoga – exercise for the face – can work wonders to reduce not just the double chin bulge but tighten loose muscles, improve blood circulation and potentially discourage facial wrinkles and creases. Easily completed while performing any sedentary activity such as watching television, face yoga is a worthwhile solution to consider if you are averse to medicines, provided you keep practicing on a regular basis.

3. Use Make-Up To Conceal A Double Chin

Darkening the area under the chin with make-up creates an illusion of the double chin having receded significantly. Use a blusher or a foundation that is a few shades darker than your face. Apply the blush right under the chin, and on the jawline, making sure the color does not extend down the neck. Please remember to blend thoroughly when you draw a sharper V-line shape on the jawline. Finish off with a subtle layer of highlighting powder or cream just above to make the light-and-shadow effect even more pronounced.
