What Are Submental Fat Injections?

Even a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area may cause the appearance of a "double chin" that may be unwanted to both women and men. The excess pockets of fat beneath the chin (also known as the submental area) can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Dr. Leonel Perez and team are proud to offer a revolutionary way to reduce neck fat at Beyond Esthetics. Deoxycholic acid injections are a new nonsurgical option for submental fat. The active ingredient in deoxycholic acid injections is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you can see a visible reduction in fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells do not regenerate, so Annandale, VA patients can enjoy their new, slim neck and clear jawline for years to come.

How Do Deoxycholic Acid Injections Work?

Deoxycholic acid injections are performed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Our team will generally apply a numbing gel to the treatment area if preferred, once the skin is clean. The submental fat-reducing injections last around 15 – 20 minutes and are comprised of a few small injections targeting the submental area. Patients may require a single treatment to reach their desired look, while some may need a few injections spaced 3 – 4 weeks between each appointment at Beyond Esthetics.

This is one of the most professional medical offices I have been in. I came for my consultation and last minute had to bring my baby and they were so understanding, kind, and genuine! Looking forward to my procedure soon! Very happy to have found them and that they are so close to home!

I had a real “treat yourself” moment – I didn’t want a facelift, so we’re doing a combination therapy! Laser skin resurfacing, collagen contouring, a little IPL, and a combo of tox and filler. I started back in January and the results are giving me a decade back at least. The staff at Beyond Esthetics were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful during my initial consultation. They took the time to understand my concerns and recommended the perfect treatment for me. I'm so happy with the results!
