SUB-MENTAL FAT INJECTIONS
Sub-mental fat injections are a way to lose the fat under the chin and redefine the jawline
Say goodbye to your double chin! Sub-mental fat injections are a non-surgical treatment used for getting rid of that small, stubborn deposit of fat that is difficult to shift with diet and exercise.
A solution is injected into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. The solution breaks down the fat cell membrane, the fat leaks out and is taken to the liver via the lymphatics where it is metabolised and then eliminated from the body. Once the fat cell has been destroyed, it is gone forever.
WHAT IS IT?
Fat dissolving injections are made of a solution of liquid lecithin derived from soya beans. It has been
used therapeutically for over 15 years. The treatment was first used in 1995 by Dr Rittes a Brazilian physician.
