What is Lipodissolve?
Lipodissolve is a non-surgical treatment resulting in permanent fat loss. Injections of a fat dissolving agent are placed under the chin for improvement of the appearance of fullness in the area (ie. double chin). It is a quick and safe treatment, taking about 15-20 minutes and requires a series of sessions to gradually improve your chin profile.
How does Lipodissolve work?
The active ingredient is Deoxycholic Acid. It is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into a targeted area, it eliminates fat cells resulting in a gradually improving chin profile.
What to expect?
The skin around your chin is cleansed and then a series of quick injections are performed into the fat tissue. After the procedure, you may experience discomfort and swelling of the area. You may take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and apply ice. Swelling is normal and can last for one month.
What does it cost?
A treatment is $700. More than one treatment is usually recommended. Most patients require 2 - 6 treatments for best results. Results are permanent and maintenance treatments are not required.
