Permanent Double Chin Removal
What is a Double Chin Injection?
A double chin injection is an innovative fat dissolving injectable procedure that targets and treats submental 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. When injected into the fat under the chin, it permanently causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
When will you see results?
Clients will start to see reduction of submental fullness 6 to 8 weeks after their injection treatment, revealing a more defined and contoured jaw-line.
How many treatments will you need?
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.
What are the side effects?
Most patients experience mild or moderate pain or discomfort at the time the product is injected. Common side effects include:
• Formation of small areas of hardness
• Itching around the treatment area
Peak swelling is at 24 – 48 hours post procedure with mild swelling lasting up to 4 weeks
How long does the treatment take?
The injectable treatment itself is extremely quick and easy and will only take approximately 20 minutes.
What does the treatment involve?
During the treatment, the nurse or doctor will mark up the target area and then administer a series of injections in the one session.
Is the treatment painful?
To minimise the pain and discomfort we use a local anaesthetic to numb the area before treatment. This means that, after injecting local anaesthetic, the treatment will be much more comfortable.
What is the cost?
The cost is from $1200 per treatment. The number of treatments recommended to see superior results is 2 treatments. The timeframe between treatment sessions is 8 weeks.
