Do you have some extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called submental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin.”
What causes a double chin?
Fullness under the chin can be caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, ageing, or weight gain.
You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away.
What is the injectable treatment?
If you’re interested in a non-surgical way to improve your chin profile, our injectable treatment may be right for you. This TGA approved treatment, a first-of-its-kind injectable, destroys fat cells under the chin to define your jawline and improve your chin profile.
The active ingredient in our injectable treatment is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, our injectable treatment destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
What are the possible side effects?
As with any treatment, there is the possibility of side effects, the most common occur in the treatment area and include:
Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.
Rarely, some nerve injury may occur which usually resolves with time. This will be explained in detail during your consultation.
How long will it last?
Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so you won’t need to be treated again.
How many treatments will I require?
Treatment should only be administered by a trained healthcare professional. At each treatment, you will receive a series of small injections under your chin. Because everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired outcome.
What will happen after the treatment?
After your treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin.
