FAT DISSOLVING TREATMENT

A double chin emerges when excess fat accumulates in the area, usually due to genetics and the natural aging process. Because this unwanted volume is not related to your diet, weight and lifestyle, it can’t be addressed by making healthier choices. In fact, it has a tendency to stick around even after you’ve lost weight from other areas of your body, making it particularly difficult to treat.

Until very recently, the only way to get rid of your double chin and achieve an enhanced and defined jawline was with an invasive surgical procedure. In February 2017 a revolutionary new product was approved for use in Australia. Due to the strict Therapeutic Goods Administration Laws we are not able to advertise the brand name of this treatment as it is a prescription only medication (much like wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers). The product has been approved for the removal of fat under the chin also known as submental fat.

THE DOUBLE CHIN DISSOLVER

This product is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies that works to absorb fat. When injected into the area underneath your chin, it permanently destroys unwanted fat cells – tightening the skin and contouring the jaw to deliver a slim and rejuvenated new look.

  • The benefits of eliminating your double chin with the innovative treatment include:
  • No downtime.
  • No incisions.
  • No anesthesia.
  • Permanent results.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR INJECTIONS

The treatment involves cleansing and marking the treatment area with a special grid to enable precise delivery of the deoxycholic acid. Small injections with an ultra-fine needle are then made into the fatty tissue. The procedure takes approximately 10-15 minutes.

Ice packs will be applied during the treatment to help numb the skin. After the injections the area can feel warm and prickly (similar to sunburn). This is usually worse in the hour following the treatment. Simple pain relief such as paracetamol and an anti inflammatory will assist with comfort. 



 

WHAT ARE THE RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS

The most common side effects are mild and not permanent. Studies show that with each treatment side effects occur less frequently and to a lesser degree. The commonest side effect we see after treatment are as follows:

  • Swelling around the area injected – We expect to see swelling. It means the treatment is working!. We recommend not going back to work on the day of treatment and using ice on the neck intermittently in the hours after treatment.
  • Temporary numbness under the chin. Approximately 50% of patients will feel this slight numbness after treatment, with symptoms wearing off after 30 days on average.
  • Warmth and redness – 40% of patients will feel warmth or redness under the chin on the day of treatment.
  • Firmess under the chin – Studies show that 16% of patients will feel firmness or ‘induration’ under the skin after treatment. This is no cause for concern and resolves, on average, after 51 days according to studies.

Rare side effects such as temporary problems with weak smile and facial muscles and trouble swallowing (2%) have been reported.

The risk of affecting the smile is due to the small chance of temporarily affecting the marginal branch of the facial nerve. The anatomy of the nerves in the face differs from person to person and in 2% of treatments a small branch of the facial nerve can be affected. This would present as a temporary problem with the smile muscle . The affected side would be more difficult to perform a full smile. The problem is temporary and the average time to resolve is 44 days.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED

A minimum of 2 treatments will be required. The precise number of treatments needed will depend on how much excess fat is present. Most patients will require between 2-4 treatments, however in some instances up to 6 treatments will be required by some patients to completely eliminate their double chin.

A minimum of 6 weeks is required between treatments. Results are assessed 6 weeks after each treatment to determine if further treatments are indicated.

Once the desired aesthetic result has been achieved, no further treatments will be required.

Package of 2 treatments using 2 vials product each treatment $2500
