Everything you need to know about chin sculpting injections

Battling with a double chin? You’re not alone, double chins are major concern for many of our clients. Caused by poor diet and fitness, genetics and age, a double chin can be a major blow to a person’s self-confidence as it can change the entire shape of their face.  

Thankfully, in addition to a good diet and regular exercise, we now have chin sculpting injections – an innovative non-invasive aesthetic treatment that can get rid of that dreaded double chin for good. Here’s everything you need to know: 

What are chin sculpting injections?

This chin sculpting treatment is Australia’s first Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved injectable treatment that improves the appearance of the ‘double chin’ area. It appeals especially to clients who do not wish to have surgery (e.g. liposuction) to achieve a reduction of fat under the chin. This is what makes the treatment so popular – it is non-surgical, safe and effective. 

How does it work?

Chin sculpting injections use a synthesised deoxycholic acid as an active ingredient. Deoxycholic acid is a man-made form of bile which occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected below the chin, it damages and digests fat cells, which the body then absorbs via the usual metabolic process. This reduces fat under the chin for a more contoured look. 

What does it involve?

The treatment involves a series of small injections into the fatty tissue in the double chin area. The treatment itself is very quick and is over in just minutes. Our doctors and nurses will tailor your treatment specifically to your needs to ensure you achieve the best results. 

How long does it take to see results?

Once fat cells are destroyed, they begin to metabolise. Everyone digests the damaged fat cells at a different rate. However, many clients can notice an improvement around four weeks post treatment. 

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on the amount of fat that requires treating. Most clients reach their desired effect after two to four treatments. Some patients require up to six treatments to achieve optimal results. Your Artisan clinician can advise you on how many treatments will give you the best results. 

How long do results last for?

Years of clinical data have shown that once the desired result is achieved, re-treatment is not expected for at least four years. 

Are there any side effects?

As with any injectable treatment, patients may experience a range of common side effects. Moderate discomfort is common, but short-lived, during treatment. After treatment, it is common to experience swelling, warmth and sensitivity in the treatment area. These side effects are temporary and typically reside after two to five days.
