Fat Dissolving Injections

Double chins can be treated with a fat dissolving injection which is less invasive than liposuction or surgery and clinically approved by Australias TGA.

The non-surgical procedure effectively removes fat deposits from the jaw and chin, which helps reshape the face, providing a more sculpted younger-looking profile.

DCA or Deoxycholic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the human body and helps break down body fat. Fat cells are permanently destroyed and lose the ability to store excess fat when the DCA is carefully injected directly into the treated area.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments do I need?

Most people require two to four treatments which will be spaced approximately six to eight weeks apart.

What is the process?

The treatment involves several smaller injections applied directly into the neck fat along a grid line or pattern.

How long does it take?

The first consultation and treatment will take approximately 1 hour, with each of the following therapies taking about 45 mins each.

How long will the results last?

As the fat loss in the treatment is considered semi-permanent, long term studies have shown results can last for five years or more. This is dependent on a person’s weight gain or loss into the future.

Is there a risk of any side effects?

This treatment is known to cause some bruising, local swelling, soreness, and redness, which usually subsides within a week. It is also common for the area to be a little numb and tingly for 2-3 weeks after treatment.

How does it compare to other double chin treatments?

Fat-dissolving treatment by injection provides lasting results, is a far less invasive treatment to surgery, with fewer risks, is less expensive and has a shorter recovery time.
