Double Chin Injections
In March 2017 a revolutionary treatment for double chin was released in Australia. This was after extensive research and experience overseas. This double chin treatment offers a permanent solution for removal of double chin fat.
No more hiding your neck with scarves, or tilting your head up when having your photo taken.
Note: Australian Law does not allow for the naming of the product used on our website.
How does it work?
The double chin injections contain a product called deoxycholic acid. This is found naturally in the body, and helps absorb fat in food. By injecting this into the fat in the double chin area it permanently destroys the fat cells by a process known as adipocytolysis.
Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again. Imagine your fat cells are balloons and double chin injections are darts. Injecting the product under the chin is like throwing a dart at fat cells. Once they have been popped they cannot be blown up again.
NOTE: As each individual is different ie mild, moderate or severe, you may require more/less vials each session. For example. Those assessed with severe sub mental fat will have a larger area to treat, thus may require more vials and /or up to 6 treatment sessions. Once the desired aesthetic result has been achieved, no further treatments will be required. See Chart.
Double Chin Fat Reduction FAQS:
What is the name of the product?
The product has different names in the USA and Australia but it is the same product. Due to Australian Law, we cannot mention the name of the product on the website. We simply call it ‘double chin injections’.
Are double chin injections painful?
We will use ice to numb the area so as to reduce the sensation from the injections. After injection the area can feel firm and a little tender. Patients can use panadol and/ or ice to reduce this discomfort.
Are double chin injections safe?
Yes. This is a non-surgical procedure with an acceptable side effect profile.
Is this a permanent double chin fat removal?
Yes – the fat cells are permanently destroyed by the double chin injections. Once destroyed they will never return.
Am I guaranteed to see results?
68.2% of patients noticed at least a 1 grade or more improvement in the fullness of their double chin area (see scale below) and 16% of patients noticed a 2 grade or more improvement in double chin fullness. 80% of people having the procedure thought it was worth it.
How many vials do I need to treat my double chin?
The average patient needs at least 2 vials injected into the double chin fat at each treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend at least 2 treatments of at least 2 vials to see results.
How much do double chin injections cost?
At Complete Skin we charge $650 per vial ($1200 for 2 vials, $1700 for 3 vials (one treatment). Most people need 2-3 vials per treatment and at least 2 treatments so overall it is $1200-1700 per treatment ($3400 in total).
Will I see results straight away?
No, it takes up to 6 weeks for you to notice the effects. We treat patients at 6 week intervals.
What are the main side effects of double chin injections?
We expect swelling around the treatment area on the day. We like swelling because it means the treatment is working. In fact, we say please call us if it does not swell! Swelling means that the body is destroying fat cells. This also means we recommend icing the skin and resting at home after treatment rather than going back to work.
