When we treat male double chins there are a few key points to bear in mind:
- Double chin treatment can cause temporary patchy hair loss under the chin in the area treated. This generally lasts for up to 3 months before growing back.
- Men need to attend the treatment appointment clean shaven. This allows us to apply to temporary grid under the chin and reduces the risk of infection from treatment.
- Men tend to have wider double chins than women and tend to have a larger treatment area. This means that as a man you may need 3 or 4 vials per treatment compared to an average of 2 vials per treatment for women.
- If men use more vials per treatment you are likely to see slightly more swelling after the treatment.
The procedure is exactly the same for men and women – firstly we ask you to come in for a consultation, plan your treatment and allow you to choose a time to come back for treatment. On the day of treatment we numb the under chin area with anaesthetic, clean the area with anaesthetic then perform the treatment.
