|Double Chin Removal-New York|
Unlike invasive fat reduction procedures like liposuction, there is no need to fast or otherwise prepare for a deoxycholic acid treatment. What you should do, however, is consult with us at Dr. Golberg Wellness & Functional Medicine to ensure you’re a good candidate for it. Aside from that, it’s recommended that you avoid ibuprofen and acetaminophen prior to undergoing the treatment, as those over-the-counter pain medications can increase the chances of bruising post-treatment. The effects of a deoxycholic acid treatment take some time to develop, and the number of treatments you’ll need will depend upon your goals and the size of the submental fullness being treated. The initial results from your first treatment will start to become noticeable at around the four-week mark. It takes the body time to process the fat cells killed by the injections and remove them from the treated area. The upside of the wait is that it gives the skin time to adjust and mold itself around the new contours of the jawline. After four weeks or so, you’ll be eligible for a second treatment. You can have up to six treatments, but they must be spaced out by at least one month. When you visit our office for your initial conversation, we’ll discuss your goals and come up with a treatment plan that includes the number of treatments you’ll need. In trials, 59% of people required the full course of six treatments to achieve their desired results.
