Double Chin Injections

Hate your double chin? You aren’t alone! In the age of selfies, having a picture-perfect look is important. The good news is that you can create a sleeker look with a few simple injections.

Forget liposuction! There’s a quick and easy way to get the look you’ve always wanted. Double chin injections with Deoxycholic Acid is a non-surgical, permanent treatment that takes less than an hour.

Benefits Of Double Chin Injections

The treatment can transform your looks and give you an incredible boost of confidence. Some of the other major benefits include:

•   Eliminating fat under the chin
•   Getting rid of your double chin with no incisions
•   No scars
•   Minimal downtime

What Is Deoxycholic Acid?

Kybella, as it’s known in some countries, is an injectable treatment which uses deoxycholic acid to eliminate fat cells in a completely natural and safe process.

Before deoxycholic acid treatments were available, liposuction and neck lifts were the only option for eliminating a double chin. While effective, both of these options are invasive and require a considerable amount of recovery time. This is the first injectable treatment that has ever received the government’s stamp of approval as an effective means to reduce the submental fat underneath the chin.

Clinical trials have proven that patients were found to have a significant improvement in the contour of their chin and to successfully target fat without damaging the surrounding tissue. After effectively destroying the targeted fat cells, this excess fat is naturally and safely eliminated from the body. For you, this means getting your dream results with no nasty side effects.

Am I An Ideal Candidate?

If you are in you are in your 20s, 30s, or 40s and good general health, a treatment can change the way that you see yourself. If you are in your late 40s or older, a neck lift may be a better option for you. It’s important to remember that while it is an effective treatment for excess fat, Belkyra can’t eliminate loose skin. Only a neck lift is able to remove excess or loose skin.

Double chin injections can target stubborn fat that won’t budge with traditional weight loss methods. In fact, a treatment can work with even moderate to severe submental fat (under the chin fat).

What To Expect From Double Chin Injections?

During your visit, our Cosmetic Physician will give you a detailed assessment to create a customised treatment plan for you and your unique needs. They will determine how many treatments you will need to achieve your goals.

A treatment takes under an hour. During your treatment, several injections will be made in a targeted area underneath your chin. There is no incision with the treatments, which means no scarring or stitches. Before beginning your treatment, we numb the area with a local anaesthesia or alternatively we cool the skin with ice packs. Once the area is numbed, you will experience minimal pain during the injections.

Depending on the amount of fat you want to remove, you may be given around 20 small injections of over the course of 10 minutes. Each injection will contain 0.2 mL deoxycholic acid and will be spaced out over 1cm intervals across your skin. The treatment site is created with exact symmetry to ensure that an even amount of fat cells are targeted throughout the treatment area to create a smooth and uniform look.

The majority of people find that two to four treatments give them their ideal results. These treatments need to be scheduled at least two month apart to allow each treatment to become effective and for any swelling to go away. After each treatment, you will notice that your double chin gets smaller over time.

Following the treatment, it’s common to experience some level of swelling, redness, minor bruising, mild pain and numbness. These side effects will only last a few days. Simple treatments of ice packs and an over-the-counter pain relief medication will be enough to keep you feeling comfortable.
