Introducing a submental contouring injectable drug
Cosmetic Dermatology on Bloor is one of the first practices in Canada to offer a safe and effective way to eliminate the dreaded double chin for good with a submental contouring injectable drug.
Known as submental fullness, excess fat under the chin is considered more bothersome than saggy facial skin. A double chin is also considered to be almost as bothersome as crow's feet around the eyes, and lacklustre texture and discolouration. A study sponsored by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found for every 3 of the more than 7,300 people surveyed, 2 respondents listed excess fat under the chin as their primary cosmetic concern.

There is a definite need for treatments that work where the promises of the miracle creams fail, or where common sense approaches such as diet and exercise appear to make no difference in the look of your jawline and profile. Fat between the head and neck is known to be resistant to the exercise and nutrition.
This is the only procedure of its kind approved by the FDA and Health Canada for the treatment of moderate to severe under-chin fullness.
The process to unlock your beauty with more sculpted, youthful contours starts with a consultation and examination at Dermatology on Bloor. Drs. Curtis, Hanna, and Schachter will recommend a treatment plan based off of the appearance of your chin profile and your unique goals for treatment.
During each customised treatment session, the solution will be injected into the fat under your chin. Multiple injections will be made to achieve the desired effect, but each session can be completed in as little as 15 to 20 minutes.
This natural molecule helps your body absorb fats. When injected precisely into neck fat, it goes to work to destroy fat cells. Since this breakdown and destruction of fat cells is a process, most patients see visible results in 2 to 4 treatments. It may take up to 6 sessions, spaced at 1-month intervals, to see the desired results, yet once the fat is gone, it's gone for good. Treated areas cannot store or accumulate fat.
A cold compress or local anesthetic like lidocaine may be applied for added comfort. The procedure is well-tolerated. Common side effects after treatment are not unlike those associated with many other cosmetic procedures, including temporary swelling, bruising, discomfort, numbness, redness, and hard lumps at the treatment site. Since the procedure is not invasive, you can get back to work and social activities in no time.
Call 416-922-9620 to schedule the initial consultation at Dermatology on Bloor, the first step toward your getting a smoother, younger look without drastic surgical measures.
Drs. Hanna, Schachter, Curtis, Abdulla, Pollack & Taradash at Dermatology on Bloor are available to help patients achieve more self-esteem and confidence with treatment of this and many other dermatologic concerns.
