shh! Anti-agers no one else but you should know: I’ve lost weight but still have a double chin

  • Anonymous reader has asked for help to get rid of a double chin
  • Inge says they can get fat-dissolving injections
  • Injections are marketed under the brand names Belkyra and Aqualyx

Q I have a double chin that doesn’t shift even though I’ve lost quite a bit of weight lately. Can treatments get rid of it?

A A new generation of fat-dissolving injections have a good track record with (very) experienced doctors. But make sure they’re deoxycholic acid-based (or sodium deoxycholate-based) options, marketed under the brand names Belkyra and Aqualyx (aqualyx.co.uk). Anything else can cause serious complications.

dr. Sophie Shotter (drsophieshotter.com) uses Belkyra as a base for her Facial Slim & Sculpt procedure (£900 per session).

Over two to six sessions (depending on personal needs), six to eight weeks apart, droplets of the acid are injected in a grid pattern into the submental fat (the layer of fat that forms under your chin) to emulsify it. This is followed by the slimming Meder Beauty Lipo-Oval Mask, which drains excess moisture from the face.

You’ll get four more masks to use at home between treatments, and you can buy them again online (£61 for a five-pack, mederbeauty.com).

The stings cause swelling for up to two weeks, along with numbness, itching, and moderate pain.
