What are Fat Dissolving Injections?
We are all born with a certain number of fat cells, these stay the same throughout our adult life and we are unable to produce new ones. When we gain weight, the fat cells merely swell or shrink as we lose weight rather than the body creating more. If you reduce the number of fat cells from a specific area in your body, that area will not store as much fat.
Fat dissolving Injections are made of a compound which is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This result in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
