Hate your double chin? You aren’t alone! Forget liposuction, you can banish saggy skin and create a sleek look with a single injection.
Want to learn more about getting rid of your double chin? Here’s everything you need to know about getting non-surgical treatment for double chin.
Benefits Of Non-Surgical Treatment
The benefits of non-surgical double chin treatment include:
- Eliminating fat under the chin
- Getting rid of your double chin with no incisions
- No stiches necessary
- No scars
- No downtime
How Does This Treatment Work?
The injection eliminates fat cells and breaks down the membranes to disconnect them from your body. When your fat cells are free, they are simply washed out of your body like a toxin. This is a completely natural process.
Before this injectable treatment, 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 injectable treatment is a really exciting new resource because it gives the same incredible results with no downtime, expense of surgery and it’s virtually painless.
Clinical trials have proven this fat dissolving injection significantly reduces fat under the chin. In the cases studied, patients were found to have a significant increase in the contour of their chin. The active ingredient is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. In clinical trials, this naturally occurring substance was shown to successfully target fat without damaging the surrounding tissue. After effectively destroying the targeted fat cells, this excess fat is naturally eliminated from the body.
Am I An Ideal Candidate For Fat Dissolving Injections?
Are you frustrated with stubborn neck fat? If you have a double chin that just won’t budge with diet or exercise, fat dissolving injections can be a great option. This is a non-surgical solution for men and women that can make you look amazing.
If you are in your 20s, 30s, or 40s and have good general health, you are an ideal candidate for fat dissolving injections. 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, fat dissolving injections can’t eliminate loose skin. Only a neck lift is able to remove excess or loose skin. If you have excess folds of skin, you will want to chat with the doctor about possible surgical options.
Fat dissolving injectable treatment is able to target stubborn fat that won’t budge with traditional weight loss methods. In fact, a a treatment can work with even moderate to severe submental fat (under the chin fat).
If you are at a healthy weight but are sll dealing with stubborn fat under your chin, you may be the perfect candidate for this treatment. Rather than spending weeks, months, or years trying to reduce your double chin, you could have a permanent solution to your double chin in a matter of minutes. And who wouldn’t want that? Treatments are ideal for a busy lifestyle because there’s no downtime. You can quickly get treatment and go right back to work.
What To Expect From a Fat Dissolving Injectable Treatment
This treatment takes approximately less than an hour. During your treatment, injections will be made in a targeted area underneath your chin. There is no incision with injectable treatments, which means no scarring or stitches.
Before beginning your treatment, Dr Turner may numb the area with a local anaesthesia or alternatively, we can cool the skin with icepacks. Once the area is numbed, you should not experience any pain during the injections.
The fat dissolving injectable treatment will be injected into the fattiest area. Depending on the amount of fat you want to remove, you may be given around 20 small injections of over the course of 15 to 20 minutes. Again, there will be minimal pain, so the exact number of injections will not have a major impact on your experience. Each injection 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 achieve their ideal results. We suggest these treatments need to be scheduled at least one month apart to allow each treatment to become effective and for any swelling to go away. After each treatment, you will begin to notice that your double chin gets smaller over time.
Following a fat dissolving injectrable treatment, it’s common to experience some level of swelling, redness, minor bruising, mild pain and/or numbness. These side effects will only last a few days. Simple treatments of ice packs and over-the-counter pain relief medication will be enough to keep you feeling comfortable.

Benefits of Fat Dissolving injections
Fat Dissolving injections are a long-term solution to eliminating stubborn fat cells that do not respond to diet and exercise.
The treatment can help to contour the jawline and improve your appearance.
How do fat dissolving injections work
The treatment contains a substance that naturally occurs in the body. This substance breaks down and absorbs the fat found in the food that we eat.
When the substance is injected into the treatment area, it dissolves and eliminates the fat cells within that area. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they can no longer store fat thus minimising the number of fat tissue in the treated area.
The treatment is considered safe and effective.
Am I suitable for Fat Dissolving injections?
Similar to other cosmetic procedures like wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers, a consultation is required. During the initial consultation, you will be able to ask us questions or address any concerns you may have regarding the fat dissolving injections.
To help us determine if you are a candidate, during your consultation, you will be asked the following questions:
- Have you previously had surgery to the face, chin or jaw?
- Do you have a history of bleeding problems?
- Have you had cosmetic injectables in the past?
- Are you on any medications?
The treatment cannot be administered in:
- Individuals who have an active infection.
What’s involved in the neck fat dissolving treatment?
During treatment, the area will be sterilised and marked with a special grid to allow for an accurate transfer of the solution. The treatment normally takes between 10-15 minutes.
What are the potential risks and side affects?
Like any cosmetic procedure, side effects may develop, these side effects can include discomfort, swelling, redness and bruising. Paracetamol is advised to help with pain.
After treatment, swelling may remain from 4 to 6 weeks while the treatment substance is dissolving the fat, (this is an excellent indication that treatment is working).
Frequently Asked Questions
The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat in the area. Most patients require at least two treatments although some patients with excess fat in the area may need additional sessions.
Treatment is administered every 4-6 weeks (preferably every six weeks to make sure resolution of swelling and full results are seen).
The number of treatments required will be discussed at your consultation. For a lot of people, exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy diet is no guarantee that their double chin will disappear.
Thankfully, patients can now get rid of their unwanted double chin through the use of fat dissolving injections.
The injections consist of a potent enzyme that significantly reduces the amount of fat present in the double chin. This procedure is now used extensively in clinics throughout the world and is just beginning to take hold here in Australia as well.
The fat dissolving substance is a powerful enzyme that splits the fat cell membranes contained within the double chin. When these cell membranes are breached, the human body is able to dissolve the fat as waste material and eradicate it from the body. Our body develops double chin fat over a length of time and can be difficult to remove through natural means.
Each patient is assessed by our trained doctors to help determine if the treatment is appropriate for them. Once approved, the fat dissolving injectables will be inserted into the required area. The treatment area is iced both before and after the procedure. This helps to minimise any swelling that occurs.
In order to provide effective double chin reduction, 2 or more treatments are required, up to a maximum of 6 treatments. Individual results vary and your doctor will assess your progress after your initial two treatments to determine whether you require additional treatments or not. The first two injections are scheduled six weeks apart from each other.
Each patient will experience noticeable swelling on the day following the procedure. During this time, the double chin will often enlarge. This is because the fat cells are undergoing a process known as lysis, which refers to the dissolution of the cell membranes. The swelling lasts for around two days or so, before easing off and is a positive indicator of the treatment’s progression. It is important that patients refrain from using any medication that deceases the swelling during this time.
In addition to swelling, patients may also experience some mild pain and bruising which can last for several days. A Panadol may be taken to help curb any discomfort. A week following your treatment, any swelling or pain should be non-existent. Patients are advised to take a few days off work to recover from their treatment.
At present, the injectables have only been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to remove fat from the chin region and so we do not administer the injections to other areas of the body.
