Double Chin Injections
Double chin injections arrived in Australia in March 2017. The Manse Clinic, which is in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, has performed a large number of these fat dissolving injections. Please see our double chin before and after gallery.
The injections have a brand name in Australia and USA, but Australian doctors are not able to write these names online. It’s an injection that dissolves fat, and the Australian product is approved for the removal of under chin fat.
It is an effective, permanent and gradual non-surgical injectable treatment to reshape the jawline by dissolving the double chin fat. The fat dissolving injection can be used to sculpt the neck and create a chiselled jawline and a youthful profile. Doctors can now contour and lift the neck the way that we have been contouring and lifting the cheeks!
People don’t like their double chins
Patients hate their double chins and are unhappy with their jawlines. Neck fat makes them feel that they look fat. Family and friends often think they’ve gained weight, even when the patient is slim. Patients hate how they look on profile when they catch a glimpse of their side view. Patients hate having double chins in photos and may even avoid taking them.
A certain brand of double chin injections (which we cannot name) is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of sub mental fullness. The fat dissolving injections are tailored to suit each patients’s anatomy. The satisfaction rate for treatment is high. After treatment, 75% of patients report satisfaction with the appearance of their face and chin.
How do people feel after double chin injections
After treatments, patients report an improvement in self perceptions. Patients reported feeling happier and younger, less embarassed, less bothered and less self conscious.
Are the results natural-looking?
Double chin dissolver is very popular with those patients who are obsessed with looking natural. This is because treatment doesn’t affect facial expression or their natural facial features, which is important to them.
WHAT CAUSES A DOUBLE CHIN?
- Ageing : Ageing can cause fat to accumulate in the neck creating a double chin
- Genetics : It can be part of a patient’s DNA, even if they are slim everywhere else.
- Weight Changes : A double chin can appear as a result of weight change. However, diet and exercise may not be enough to remove the fat from a double chin.
Are people concerned about their chin profile?
In Australia 59% of women said that they are concerned about a double chin. This figure is more than the number of those who are bothered by their forehead lines!
41% of men are concerned about their chin profile.
The majority of those concerned with their jawline profile are aged 31-60 years old.
How do patients try and cope with their double chins?
Patients are working hard to avoid evidence of their double chins. They wear scarves and big jewellery. Men grow beards and women contour with makeup. Many lift their heads and avoid unflattering poses like looking down. When they take selfies they lift the camera high and edit, edit, edit! How exhausting!
What is holding people back from having treatments?
Patients worry about safety and cost. They fear invasive treatment and some just see it as non-urgent or a low priority. Most importantly, one of the main reasons holding the public back is that they are unaware that there are treatments available for double chins.
How do double chin injections work?
The drug contains an acid (which we are not allowed to name in Australia). This acid also occurs naturally in the body and aids the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
The double chin injections breaks down fat cells when injected into the neck fat below the chin. The body then absorbs the fat.
What is the science behind it?
When injected subcutaneously, the acid disrupts the membranes of adipocytes (fat cells) leading to irreversible cell breakdown (adipocytolysis). The adipocytolysis elicits a mild, local physiological inflammatory tissue response, which is largely resolved within about 28 days. Fibroblast cells appear and begin to produce new collagen, and there is thickening of fibrous septa within the subcutaneous tissue.
How many double chin injection treatments are required?
Patients will typically require 3-6, a minimum of 4 weeks between treatments. Double chin treatment is NOT A ONE OFF treatment. Fat dissolving treatment is a marathon and not a sprint. The majority of patients will see an improvement after 2-4 treatments
Are double chin injections permanent?
Double chin injections are permanent, according to the long term (5 years) study data. The product has been over 9 years in clinical study and there have been more than 20 clinical studies conducted worldwide.
What are the side effects?
The side effects of double chin injections include the following;
- Induration (areas of firmness) and
- Itching and paraesthesia.
Rare side effects
- Rare side effects include nodules, necrosis and transient neuropraxia of a facial nerve which causes smile asymmetry.
In long term follow up NO adverse effects on skin laxity were noted.
How is the treatment performed?
- The patient will have a consultation where their face and neck will be evaluated and a history taken to make sure that they are suitable for the treatment.
- The patient will be cleaned and the grid may then be applied, which will allow the doctor to find the correct dosage for the individual, and then the patients will know the number of vials and therefore cost of the procedure.
- The patients will be injected.
- They will hold ice afterwards for 10 minutes.
- Panadol is suitable for pain relief.
- Anti inflammatories and steroids should be avoided, as the inflammatory response may be an important part of treatment success.
What is the average dose for neck fat dissolving injections?
The average dose is 4-6mls (ie 2-3 vials) per treatment. The average number of treatments is 3-4 treatments
The patient is typically in the office for 30 minutes, with the injections taking 5 minutes.
Happy gas will be offered to patients for pain relief during the procedure.
What to do after double chin injections treatment?
Do not massage for 72 hours. Panadol may be taken if there is pain. Patients must be aware that results may not be visible for up to 6 weeks, and may not be visible until after the second or third treatment. Also skin continues to tighten after treatment even after swelling subsides.
An appointment should be made for 8 weeks after the treatment for review and follow up treatment.
What are the other options for neck fat?
Neck liposuction is the main competitor for neck fat dissolving injections. Neck liposuction is less appealing to patients because it is more invasive so more downtime is required, and and small holes (incisions with scarring) are created with a scalpel in the procedure. A liposuction compression garment is required afterwards, which makes it a procedure with significant downtime.
Double chin injections are non-surgical, no time off work is required and the downtime is minimal, The other benefit for those who aren’t open about their procedures, is that there is a gradual change in appearance.
