A New Approach To Chin Fat Reduction

Today we are glad to also offer a different, yet safe and effective solution to dissolve chin fat: a combination of Radiofrequency and a lipolytic solution of Ascorbic Acid and Ferric Iron (Apoptosis).

You may be not familiar with the term Apoptosis, but it is actually a natural process constantly occurring in our body. Apoptosis is used to define a process that leads to programmed cell death. The peculiarity of apoptosis is the absence of inflammation. The cell is digested by macrophages without releasing inflammatory mediators. The introduction of a sufficient amount of ascorbic acid, in the presence of ferric ions, into the adipose tissue induces the activation of the Fenton reaction with the release of free radicals, induction of apoptosis and reduction in the number of adipocytes with consequent reduction of volume of fat tissue in the submental area. Also the fat that sometimes accumulates in the cheeks can be treated.

Usually 3 to 6 sessions may be needed, once session per week. Most common side effects are moderate swelling that will reduce in just a few hours, bruising, or moderate pain that may last just a few minutes.

For a quicker and more dramatic results the lipolytic treatment will be combined with Radiofrequency. Firmer, more toned skin is achieved with radio frequency: a non surgical alternative to facelift.
Radiofrequency uses energy to heat the dermis and tighten the underlying skin structure and contour the face to create firm, toned and youthful looking skin, without damaging the top layer.
It's this tightening, firming action, brought about by boosting collagen and elastin synthesis, that makes radiofrequency especially suitable for targeting loose skin and the neck and chin and jawline.

How To Lose Chin Fat?

Is it possible to lose Chin Fat without surgery?

A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a condition common in both women and men due to a layer of fat below the chin.

The excess volume in this area can be made up of a few factors including;

  • Loose Skin
  • Excess neck fat
  • Small/weak chin
  • Drooping salivary gland
  • Sagging platysma Muscle

A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but you don’t have to be overweight to develop it. Genetics, looser skin, or aging process may also cause a double chin. A similar excess can present itself in the cheeks resulting in an heavier face contour.

The skin can lose its elasticity as the body ages, which can lead to the appearance of saggy skin that may contribute to a double chin. Weight gain is not necessary the cause of a double chin but it can contribute to it. A diet rich in calories and fat or unhealthful may influence weight gain and a double chin as well.

The visual appearance of a double chin, especially with Social Media, can deeply affect confidence. Here at Bellezza Clinic we have a selection of treatments available to help with this condition.


A combination of Deoxycholic Acid, Phosphatidylcholine and L-Carnitine is injected in the area. A local anaesthetic can be applied to reduce discomfort and for better tolerance. Fat dissolving injections can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin or other body areas such as abdomen, thighs, knees and arms. It is very effective for body contouring but is not a treatment for weight loss. Popular areas that we treat are double chins, moobs, saddle bags, inner thighs, ankles and abdomen - including defining a six pack. The membranes of fat cells in the treated area are dissolved. The fat cells become unstable and break open. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.

This option may cause side effects such as swelling, bruising, or moderate pain. The double chin may still come back if the lifestyle does not change to maintain it. A few sessions may be needed, one every 3 or 4 weeks.


Aqualyx is a fat dissolving solution of deoxycholic acid used to safely and effectively eliminate small, stubborn pockets of fat. It is not intended for weight loss, but to improve the contour of the body. It is used to reduce stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the chin, stomach, saddle bags, arms and thighs and injected directly into the  subcutaneous fat tissue. The  treated fat cells are gradually dissolved and flushed out by the body. Results are effective, quick, and minimally invasive. It’s ideal for those patients with stubborn fat that  will not respond to diet and exercise.

What is deoxycholic acid? It is naturally produced in our body. It is a steroid, and more precisely a bile acid which is secreted, together with the other bile acids, by the liver; in particular it is a secondary bile acid, that is the product of the metabolism of the intestinal bacterial flora.

Aqualyx is a synthetic deoxycholic acid that simulates the behaviour of natural deoxycholic acid present in the body, a substance that degrades the fat that is ingested in our body. The drug performs a cytolytic action, in the sense that it breaks the cell membrane when it interacts with it. The result is therefore to "dissolve" the fat of the double chin which is reabsorbed in the body, leaving the skin more taut and the lower chin more defined.

Double Chin Exercises

As we mentioned earlier, one of the problems that causes a double chin is the relaxation of the platysma muscle. One of the most effective targeted methods concerns some facial gymnastics exercises that have been designed precisely to remove the double chin by toning the tissues and eliminating skin laxity in the critical area. Let's see below two of the ideal exercises that you can do at home, just perform them at least once a day for a minimum of thirty days and the results will not be long in coming.

Exercise 1 – The kissing exercise

  • sit on a chair or sofa but with parallel feet resting on the ground;
  • stand up straight with your back and try to keep your neck and head as straight as possible but without straining your muscles or straining your neck;
  • push your lips forward, as if you were about to give a kiss and hold the position for at least 10 seconds;
  • repeat for three sets of 10 kisses;
  • now repeat the exercise but keeping your head first on one side and then on the other, always looking forward and keeping your back straight;
  • repeat for three sets of 10 on each side.

Exercise 2

  • lift your head trying to stretch your neck muscles as much as you can;
  • open your mouth a little;
  • rests a hand on the neck, i.e. under the double chin and exerts a sort of push, pressure;
  • then go down with the same hand along the neck, as if you were stretching it downwards;
  • proceed for at least 5 minutes and you can also repeat the exercise several times a day
