What’s known as “double chin”, can be the natural result of aging and/or weight fluctuations. People often think that this is a negative aspect of their overall appearance.  In fact, the “double chin” can simply be a matter of genetics, making it difficult to naturally achieve a different look and create a more defined jawline. In the past, there were few face slimming methods that involved surgery. Fortunately, new technology can allow patients to alter their jawline and feel better about their looks without having a surgical procedure done.

Most Popular Face Slimming Method

One of the safest and most popular face slimming methods is an injection known as Belkyra. All it takes is a simple injection to achieve the look you want. Even adults with more severe cases of "submental fullness" can experience significant improvements that create a more defined jawline and reduce fullness.

Belkyra utilizes a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid, which is known to break down dietary fat and prevent it from being absorbed by the body. When this molecule is injected below the skin, it actually works to breakdown the fat cells that are creating chin and facial fullness. The result is a slimmer face and a more defined profile. 

The fat cells that tend to congregate in your chin are especially hard to shrink and eliminate. Your facial fullness may be the result of hereditary factors, which means that even a strict diet and exercise regimen won't be enough to achieve the desired results. For those who have struggled to find the right face slimming methods, injections can provide a more permanent solution.

The Treatment Process

The actual injection process is quite simple and straightforward with minimal discomfort or recovery time. You can actually return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment. 

Keep in mind that more than one treatment will be required. Most patients will need 2 to 6 treatments in order to achieve the desired results. These visits are usually scheduled about 6 weeks apart in order to allow enough time for the product to work and for the body to recover. Once you are happy with your look, you won't have to worry about returning for touch-up treatments. 

Additional Face Slimming Methods

For those who are looking for a more dramatic change, Botox can also be used to reduce the muscles around the jaw. Jaw muscles can become well-developed and create a square jaw. Reducing the fullness of the jaw muscles provides another way to achieve a slimmer face with a softer shape. Once again, a safe injection is enough to produce significant results.

These face slimming methods have become increasingly popular because they provide both a safe and affordable way to increase your self-confidence and feel better about your looks. In a short period of time, you can reduce facial fullness. If you have spent countless hours at the gym trying to lose weight only to find that your stubborn chin fat stays exactly in place, then injections may be the right solution for you.
