HOW IT WORKS

Double chin injections contain a synthesised deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected below the chin, it begins to destroy and permanently eliminate fat cells.  

Double chin injections are used to treat areas under the chin, around the jawline and neck.  

RESULTS

Results vary depending on the area treated. They are typically visible after two to four treatments and are optimal after eight weeks. Results last up to four years.  

TREATMENT PREPARATION

Before your treatment:

  • Avoid blood-thinning medication such as aspirin, ibuprofen and fish oil, one week prior  

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Prior to your first treatment, our doctor will consult with you to assess your suitability for double chin injections and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.   

The procedure involves a series of tiny injections of the prescribed product being administered directly into the fatty tissue of the chin, jawline or neck. This is very quick and over in a few minutes. A numbing cream may be applied to minimise discomfort.
