Double Chin (Submental Fullness) Treatment

Submental fullness, more commonly known as a ‘double chin’, is a common area of concern for both men and women. Weight changes aren’t necessarily always to blame for having fullness under the chin, sometimes it is simply due to genetics. For some, diet and exercise may not be enough to move the stubborn area of fat. If this sounds familiar, then our new, non-surgical, fat dissolving treatment may be for you.

What is it?

A prescription medication that is administered through a series of injections, which is designed to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. It contains Deoxycholic Acid, an active ingredient that naturally occurs within the body and aids in the breakdown of fat.

How many treatments will I need?

Many people see visible improvements and chin contouring from 2-4 treatments. Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced 4 weeks apart. Each treatment is relatively quick, taking approximately 15-20 minutes to complete with no need for general anaesthesia.

Am I a suitable candidate?

There are a number of contributing factors to consider before deciding if this treatment is right for you. We offer complimentary consultations with a Nurse Injector, during which time they will determine if you are a suitable candidate and establish a treatment plan based on your desired outcome.
