During your consultation, we will determine how many treatments you will need based on your chin profile. No more than six sessions are typically required. We will let you know if you need more treatments. Treatments are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.
Bruising and swelling are common. Allow yourself two weeks before an event or vacation. Severe swelling is rare.
In trials by the FDA, patients who gained weight after their procedure did not see fat in their treated areas return. You can see the most noticeable results in 60-90 days. However, you can see the fat return in areas that are not treated. Therefore, it is recommended that you maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise, and eat right.
The number of treatments varies. Typically, you will not receive more than six treatments. Schedule a consultation to create a customized treatment plan to meet your needs.
Bruising and swelling are common. Allow a minimum of 4 weeks ahead of any events or vacations. You may experience mild to moderate swelling for about a week. You may have severe swelling like a bullfrog, but if this happens to you it may take a month for the swelling to resolve. This significant swelling often happens in patients with a large amount of submental fat. This reaction minimizes with subsequent injections.
You may also have some bruising around injection sites, but this can be covered with makeup and should go away within a week or two. However, your treatment area may feel tender for up to two weeks. Ask your provider to recommend over-the-counter pain medication.
If you feel a jiggling sensation in the area, this is normal. This sensation is because the fat cells are dissolving and being absorbed by your body.
