Our Fat Dissolving Injections reduce fat under the chin and contour the neck and jawline via a series of clinically proven, fat-dissolving injections.
A compound which naturally occurs in the body, is used to aid the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, the compound works as a double chin treatment, breaking down fat cells which the body then absorbs and eliminates.
What is double chin fat dissolving all about?
Double chin fat dissolving uses a substance that is similar to bile acid, found naturally in the body to helps absorb fats in food. This substance is injected into the fat in the double chin area and permanently destroys the fat cells by a process known as adipocytolysis.
Which areas can be treated?
Fat dissolving injections are able to treat the submental fat (double chin) and small fat pockets on the body including the bra bulge, stomach, hips, buttocks & backs of legs.
Are results instant?
No, results are not instant. Results begin to show from 4-6 weeks post treatment.
How long do results last?
Results are permanent. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again.
How long does the treatment take?
An initial consultation will be completed with all new clients, with all paperwork and consent forms completed. Consultation and approval will then be obtained by the supervising cosmetic doctor (face to face or via video conference call) for the treatment, and a prescription will be written up to cover the patient for 12 months worth of future treatments. Generally an initial appointment will take 45 min. All future treatments should only take around 30 minutes.
Does it hurt?
The treatment is very quick. The injections may sting a little however most people tolerate the treatment well. We can use topical anaesthesia and/or ice if needed.
Are there any side effects?
The injection may sting for a short while, and will generally cause some temporary localised reactions. While every precaution will be taken to prevent any complication, they can and sometimes do occur. These include but are not limited to;
- Localised pain, redness and swelling at the injection site (swelling is an essential part of this treatment) lasting 4-7 days
- Skin tightness and/ or tingling sensation at injection site
- Localised numbness (lasting up to 4 weeks)
- Referred pain during treatment injections
Who is not suitable for Fat Dissolving Injections?
- People who are pregnant, breastfeeding or trying for a baby (including IVF)
- If you have no submental fat
- If you have a lot of loose skin under the chin
- If you have an active infection in the treatment area
How much does the treatment cost?
$650 per session and for best results we usually recommend 2-4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
