The spot treatment of double chin caused by fat deposition is a simple and effective treatment. However, patients will be encouraged to follow a healthy lifestyle and diet to get the optimum results.

A medicine called deoxycholate is effective in the treatment of localised deposits of fat. In this treatment, small quantities of deoxycholate are injected into the problem area so that the fat is melted inside the cells, and then removed naturally through the lymphatic circulation of the body.

This treatment can also be used over the stomach fat, saddle bag areas and outer thighs to help reduce the fat layers. The treatment provides uniform and long term improvement in the figure.

After cleansing the skin, the dermatologist applies a numbing cream over the treatment area. Then the dexoycholate medicine is injected into the fat using very fine needles called mesoneedles. The treatment is quick and takes only 5 to 10 mins. Post treatment, cooling or ice is applied to the area to help to reduce discomfort if any. The patient can return to work in 1 hour after the procedure.

Treatments are repeated 3 to 4 times at monthly intervals. Usually improvement is seen after the second session and maximum improvement is seen 6 weeks after the final session.
