Double Chin Treatment

The dreaded double chin is something none of us particularly wants to have. Characterised by a noticeable fullness under the chin, it is typically caused by factors such as ageing, genetics and changes in weight. The double chin is not exclusive to men or women – anyone can develop one – and many people find it difficult to get rid of despite how many weight loss programs they go on or how much exercise they do.

But now there is a double chin treatment option that can reduce the visible signs of a double chin. Discover the new non-surgical treatment, available now from The DOC Clinic in Melbourne.

10 Things You Need to Know About Double Chin Removal

  1. Non-surgical treatment with few side effects.
  2. We tailor each vial of injectable substance to the patient’s anatomical and physiological workings.
  3. Double chin treatment takes approximately 20 minutes* at our Melbourne clinic, with two vials per treatment session injected beneath the chin. Sometimes depending on the size of area to be treated extra vials maybe needed.
  4. Typically two treatment sessions* are required, scheduled six week*s apart, with some patients requiring a third and maybe fourth appointment.
  5. Clinically proven to minimise the appearance of double chin.
  6. More than three quarters of patients claimed to be satisfied with the appearance of their face and chin following double chin treatment.
  7. Don’t expect to see results straight away – it can take up to six week*s for visible signs of change to present themselves, which is why we schedule treatments six week*s apart.
  8. The non-surgical fat reduction is long-lasting – treatment shouldn’t be needed again for 4 years.
  9. Double Chin Injections are not overly painful, but your doctor will ice the neck to numb it. The patient might feel a bit of heat that is comparable to a feeling of mild sunburn.
  10. All in all, we recommend coming in for two double chin removal sessions* at our Melbourne clinic six weeks* apart, using at least two vials per treatment session.

How the Injections Works

When the substance is injected below the skin, it starts to dissolve the body’s surrounding fat cells, which the body then absorbs. For example, when injected into the chin, it can break down fat cells, leaving behind a more defined jaw line.

Before the double chin treatment, the skin around the chin and the neck is wiped clean with an antiseptic called chlorhexidine. The doctor then uses a pencil to mark particular areas along the jawline, neck and chin which are used to define the relevant areas to work on. They will then place a grid sticker over the chin area which tells the doctor the particular areas where the non-surgical treatment will be administered – usually with 20 small needle pricks. To minimise the sensation of the needle pricks, the doctor will apply ice to the chin and neck areas.

Who Can Use Double chin Injections?

At The DOC Clinic in Melbourne, we recommend not using Chin Injections during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Double chin removal is also unsuitable for people who have no double chin, those with a lot of loose skin in that area, and those with a skin infection.

The treatment is best suited to people with a moderate to severe quantity of localised double chin fat.

Results with Double Chin Removal

After having undergone the non-surgical treatment, many patients experience noticeable positive changes in their appearance after about 6 weeks*. To achieve the results you want, we specify that a minimum of two treatment sessions* be scheduled and that they be booked six weeks* apart. Beyond that, you may not need another double chin treatment for four years.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Much like any injectable treatment in Melbourne, you may feel some side effects with double chin removal. The most common one experienced by patients is a mild to moderate pain/discomfort in the chin and/or neck area. This is typically managed with ice or a topical numbing cream that is administered before the Injection treatment.

If you’re noticing swelling within the first few days* of your treatment, this is a good sign – it proves that the treatment has in fact been successful. The swelling is a sign that the fat cells treated by the Injection are being destroyed. After about three days*, the swelling should subside and most people will be able to return to work.

Some far less common side effects that have been reported after double chin treatment they include temporary issues with a weak smile and facial muscles, and trouble swallowing.
