Double Chin Reduction Treatment in Toronto
Many Toronto residents seek a double chin reduction to enhance their face’s contour and appear slimmer, especially in photos. Get selfie-ready and learn more about this treatment by reading on.
DLK’s double chin reduction treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that helps to improve the contour and appearance of submental fat, or the double chin.
Administered like other injectable products, this treatment uses a safe and clinically tested drug that reduces and permanently eliminates fat by gently breaking down the localized fat under the chin. This treatment is ideal for patients looking to reduce fat under the chin to help redefine the jawline and slim the chin without surgery.
What Is Double Chin Reduction?
Double Chin Reduction is a submental fat treatment that consists of injecting a synthetic form of Deoxycholic acid (a naturally occurring substance in our bodies) into the submental layer of the chin. Deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells and helps absorb fat by breaking the cell membrane of fat cells. This allows fatty acids to be released, naturally processed, and eliminated by the body.
What Is Submental Fat?
The area under your chin is called the submental area, so any fat that gathers in pockets in that region is known as submental fat. This fat usually creates the appearance of a double chin, reduces definition around the jawline, and causes skin sagging in the neck area.

How to Prepare for Your Double Chin Reduction Treatment
Arrive at your appointment with no makeup or lotion on your skin - keep it completely clean, don’t wear a shirt with a high neckline, and don’t wear jewelry. Prepare a ride home after your surgery in case you are dizzy, and follow all aftercare instructions provided by the DLK on Avenue team to help minimize bruising and swelling.
During Your Double Chin Reduction Treatment
A very fine needle is used to perform this treatment, which takes approximately 30 minutes with minimal recovery and little-to-no downtime. Swelling will occur after the treatment, which usually lasts 48 hours post-treatment. Patients may experience numbness, tenderness, or even a mixture of both under the chin, lasting up to 2 months.
Double Chin Reduction Aftercare & Recovery
Treated areas may be slightly swollen, and you will experience numbness following the procedure, but these effects generally disappear within 7 days. The possible side effects you may experience from this treatment are namely bruising and swelling.
You can return to work and regular activities immediately following the treatment, but you must avoid strenuous exercise activity for 2-3 days as this may increase bruising and prolong any swelling. You may consider wearing a scarf to cover the area. You should sleep with your head elevated to reduce swelling.
A series of 2-4 treatments will be performed approximately every 4 weeks, and on average 2-6 sessions are needed to see optimal results. The patient is recommended to return two weeks after treatment for a follow-up appointment to ensure optimal results. Results will also be photographically monitored.
