Fat reduction

Fat reduction

Seeing a double chin in the mirror may be a sign of weight gain or obesity, but that is not always the case.

A few different factors combine in the body to create a double chin. Understanding these factors may help with understanding ways to get rid of the double chin itself.
The skin can start to lose its elasticity as the body ages, which can lead to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that may contribute to a double chin.
Diet and weigh 
While weight gain is not always the cause of a double chin, it can contribute to it. A diet high in calories, processed foods, and unhealthful fats may influence weight gain and a double chin as well.
Genetics
Genes may play a role in people developing a double chin. Anyone with a family history of skin with little elasticity or double chins might be more likely to develop one themselves.
Posture Poor posture can weaken the muscles of the neck and chin. This may contribute to a double chin over time, as the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when the muscles are not used.
How to treat???
The launch of fat dissolving injections has many excited. Now we can finally get rid of stubborn fat that just won’t budge, no matter how hard we exercise, or how healthy we eat.
Fat dissolving injections can help you to achieve a slimmer, more contoured body shape, with long-lasting results of between two and four years. The results are even longer if you maintain a healthy diet and regularly exercise!
Like with all new treatments though, it’s important to understand exactly what is involved before rushing in. Here’s all you need to know about fat dissolving injections:

Fact – they are safe

Our two fat dissolving injectable treatments at Artisan contain natural substances. Our chin sculpting injections contain a synthesised deoxycholic acid. This occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Meanwhile, our general fat dissolving injections contain a substance called phosphatidylcholine (PC). Again, this is a natural compound derived from soybean. Both are safe to use and are naturally broken down by the body over time.

Fact – side effects are rare

Side effects of fat dissolving injections are rare. You may experience swelling, bruising, itching, pain, sensitivity to pressure and excessive warmth at the injection site however, this is usually resolved within three to five days.

Minimise risk by enlisting the help of a highly qualified doctor or nurse. At Artisan, all of our cosmetic injectable treatments are administered by our team of highly skilled doctors and nurses. They are masters of their craft with years of industry experience.

Fact – pain is minimal

As with all treatments that involve needles, the injections may sting for a few seconds, but generally, pain is minimal with our chin sculpting and fat dissolving treatments. We also always offer the option of applying a topical numbing agent to the treatment area to minimise discomfort.

Fact – there is downtime

The biggest thing to note with our fat dissolving injections and chin sculpting injections is they do require a bit of downtime. Both treatments recommend taking it easy for three to five days.
