Can CHIN UP™ be used on other areas of the body like the stomach?
No, at this point the product used for CHIN UP™ is approved only for submental fat reduction. It is not yet known if the treatment is safe and effective for use of removing fat in other areas or in clients under the age of 18 years.
The product has been used to remove fat in other stubborn areas such as under the arms/bra line (bra fat) and above the knees for example with excellent results, however this is ‘off label’ use.
Who is not a good candidate for CHIN UP™?
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not suitable candidates for any type of injection treatment. Also, clients who have severe liver or heart problems may not be able to undergo this treatment. Patients who have a lot of excess skin or lax neck muscles may be better candidates for skin tightening.
Is CHIN UP™ safe?
When the CHIN UP™ treatment is performed by an experienced Doctor, yes, it is safe. Complications can arise, just like with any cosmetic treatment. Always do your research and make sure you choose a qualified injectionist and a reputable clinic. You can view our team’s qualifications by going to TALENT on the main menu and selecting a Doctor.
Does it hurt?
We’ll may apply a topical numbing agent to help make your CHIN UP™ treatment as comfortable as possible.
Will CHIN UP™ help with my loose skin too?
CHIN UP™ is meant to target and destroy fat cells, but does not help with loose skin. To address loose skin concerns, we offer multiple LASER & LIGHT TREATMENTS. If you also want to tighten your neck muscles, a neck lift could be the best option for you.
Is there any downtime with CHIN UP™?
Downtime occurs most commonly after the first treatment. Immediately, there may be some stinging or pain during the treatment and it may last for a few days. Swelling and bruising can last for 2 weeks. Some discomfort, numbness and firmness may last for several weeks. Severe side effects are rare but may include nerve injury with an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness or trouble swallowing.
