How It Works
The contouring injection contains fat dissolving solutions which are injected to the area where there is excess fat such as around the jaw that creates a double chin. This triggers the breakdown of fat, otherwise known as lipolysis, to occur which takes place over a couple of weeks. The broken down fat is removed by the body and then the final result is a sharper and slimmer look.
1. No Visible Scars
As no incisions are made, the way they are in traditional liposuction surgeries, there are no scars or marks left behind which is great as the procedure is usually done on or around the face.
2. Long Lasting Results
Unless the person gains large amounts of weight, the effects of the procedure will be long lasting and will provide a permanent solution.
3. Affordable Price
Even multiple treatments of the fat dissolving injection are cheaper than the alternative of liposuction surgery which is why many opt for this procedure
Someone concerned with small regions of unwanted fat in facial areas such as chin and cheeks.
