Permanent double chin fat removal / treatment – how does it work?
The double chin injection treatments contain a product which contains deoxycholic acid – a substance naturally occurring in the body – which helps to absorb fat in food. The product is injected into the fat in the double chin area and permanently destroys the fat cells by a process known as adipocytolysis. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again.
NOTE: Imagine your fat cells are balloons and double chin injections are darts. Injecting the product under the chin is like throwing a dart at fat cells. Once they have been popped they cannot be blown up again.
- What is the name of the product? – The product has different names in the USA and Australia but it is essentially the same product. Frustratingly, we are not allowed to mention the name of the product on the website due to Australian law. We have to call it ‘double chin injections’ instead of using the actual brand name.
- Are double chin injections painful? – We are now using local anaesthetic to numb the double chin area before treatment. This means that, after injecting local anaesthetic, you will barely feel the double chin injections. After injection the area can feel firm and a little tender but patients often use panadol and ice to reduce this discomfort.
- Are double chin injections safe? – Yes. It is a non surgical treatment with an acceptable side effect profile.
- Does the product permanently remove double chin fat? Yes – double chin injections permanently destroys double chin fat. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they will never return.
- Am I guaranteed to see results? – 68.2% of patients noticed at least a 1 grade or more improvement in the fullness of their double chin area (see scale below) and 16% of patients noticed a 2 grade or more improvement in double chin fullness.
- How many vials do I need to treat my double chin? – The average patient needs at least 2 vials injected into the double chin fat at each treatment.
- How many treatments will I need? – We recommend at least 2 treatments of at least 2 vials to see results.
- How much do double chin injections cost? – At Cityskin clinics in Neutral Bay, the cost is $600 per vial. It is likely that you will need at least 4 vials in total to complete a full treatment.
- Will I see results straight away? – No, it takes up to 6 weeks for you to notice the effects. We treat patients at 6 week intervals.
- What are the main side effects of double chin injections? – We expect swelling around the treatment area on the day. We like swelling because it means the treatment is working. In fact, we say please call us if it does not swell! Swelling means that the body is destroying fat cells. This also means we recommend icing the skin and resting at home after treatment rather than going back to work.
How many vials am I likely to need for my treatment?
This is one of the most common questions that we are asked by patients enquiring about double chin injections.
You can do the ‘pinch test’ in-front of the mirror to estimate how many vials you might need. The fullness under the chin that we can treat is where you can pinch a little finger’s width of fat between your finger.
1 vial of double chin injections will treat approximately an area the size of a 50 cent coin. A small number of patients fall into this category.
2 vials of double chin injections is approximately the same area as a packet of chewing gum. Most patients fall into this category.
3 vials of double chin injections is approximately the same width as a credit card.
