A double chin injection is an innovative fat dissolving injectable procedure that targets and treats fullness under the chin, most commonly referred to as a ‘double chin’.
The active ingredient is Deoxycholic Acid. This ingredient is designed to be identical to the Deoxycholic Acid which naturally occurs in the body and helps to break down and dissolve dietary fat cells.
The Deoxycholic Acid works in the same way as the Deoxycholic Acid in the body, when it’s injected into subcutaneous fat the solution causes the dissolving of fat cells. Once the fat cells have been removed, the targeted area cannot store or accumulate fat.
Clients will start to see reduction of chin fat 4 to 8 weeks after their inject treatment, revealing a more defined and contoured jaw-line.
Many patients treated with the fat dissolving injections will experience visible improvement of their chin profile in 2 treatments. Some people may require more treatments in order to achieve their best results.
Once your desired results are achieved, additional treatments may not be needed as results are maintained for at least 4 years.
Most patients experience mild or moderate pain or discomfort at the time the product is injected. Common side effects include:
These side effects are temporary and will subside a couple of days after treatment.
The before and after photo’s below showcase how the fat dissolving injections significantly reduces the appearance on the ‘double chin’.
Yes, once the injections have been administered to the fat deposits under the chin, the cells are broken down and dissolved with no possibility of regenerating.
The treatment specifically targets the subcutaneous fat deposits under the surface of the skin and is not effective for sagging muscles or loose sagging skin. Some patients may experience tightening of sagging skin, however this is not guaranteed.
The injectable treatment itself is extremely quick and easy and will only take approximately 20 minutes.
During the treatment, the therapist will mark up the target area and then administer a series of injections in the one session.
To minimise the pain and discomfort we use a local anesthetic to numb the area before treatment. This means that, after injecting local anesthetic, the treatment will be much more comfortable.
The cost is $2499 for the first 2 treatments using 2 vials per treatment. This is the minimum number of treatments recommended to see results. The timeframe between the 2 treatment sessions is between 4-6 weeks.
Your first step when having a consultation is to discuss your treatment expectations with one of our clinicians or registered nurses at your complimentary consultation. After deciding what you wish to achieve and considering your needs, your nurse will suggest which treatment is most suitable for you and inform you of all costs and prices involved. After the consultation, and if you are happy to proceed, you will then consult with our doctor who will complete a script for you, allowing you to proceed with the treatment. We will also assist you in completing a medical history form and a consent form, which is required prior to treatment.
Post your inject treatment you may experience minor side effects including:
The reactions are usually mild to moderate. Some people may be more sensitive than others, so the recovery is individual. It is best to treat the area with care and not to do any activities that may impact the area causing irritation.
