Double Chin Defined
Fullness under the chin to a ‘double chin’ is a common concern for both men and women. It can be caused by:
- Ageing – May naturally develop as you age
- Genetics – Simply said, it may be part of your DNA
- Weight changes – May appear as a result of weight changes
How do fat dissolving injection works?
The active ingredient in the fat dissolving injection is purified synthesised Deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid also occurs naturally in the body where it helps to break down dietary fat.
One of our clinicians will administer a series of injections into the area under your chin at each session. When injected below the chin, the product reduces fat, resulting in a more contoured neck profile and jawline. As it is a prescription-only medicine, the fat dissolving treatment is only available from trained clinicians.
The Fat dissolving injectable treatment
- The injectable treatment will be completed at our clinic and takes approximately 15-20 minutes
- Our clinicians will customise the treatment to your individual anatomy and circumstances
- The procedure is not a surgical treatment
- Once your desired results are achieved, re-treatment is not expected
- Safe, minimal downtime and no surgery
How many treatments will I need?
Many people treated with fat dissolving injections experienced visible improvement in the appearance of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments.
Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve their best results and to be spaced at least 6 weeks apart. Once your desired results are achieved, additional treatments may not be needed as results are maintained for at least 4 years required.
What can I expect during treatment?
Prior to administering the fat dissolving injections, our clinicians may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anesthesia (e.g. Lidocaine) to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. They may also suggest you take an over-the-counter pain relief medication such as Paracetamol prior to your appointment.
