Double chin injections and how they work?
Rapid advances in cosmetic science and technology is now putting non-surgical treatments within reach of everyday Australians. There are now treatments in Australia, which only a few years ago seemed to be reserved for the Hollywood set or exclusively rich and famous.
One example of this new research and development, released onto the Australian market in March this year, has attracted plenty of media attention and enquiry from the public. The product treats one of the conditions which both men and women seem to loathe about their personal appearance– the double chin. Fullness under the chin or a “double chin” is a common concern for people of all ages. A study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery revealed that more than 67 per cent of people are bothered by the fat or fullness under the chin, similar to the percentage of patients who are bothered by lines and wrinkles.
In March 2017 a revolutionary treatment for the double chin was released in Australia. However, it can be said this is the only non-surgical injectable treatment for the reduction of fullness under the chin that has undergone extensive clinical trials involving more than 2,600 patients worldwide.
Note: Australian Law does not allow for the public naming of the product that is used.
The active ingredient in the double chin injections is synthesised deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body, and helps absorb fat in food. When injected into the double chin area it permanently causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those fat cells cannot accumulate fat again. The treatment involves a series of injections under the skin which typically takes 20 minutes. Between 2-4 treatments should get the desired results. As each individual is different, more or less vials per treatment may be required. As with all injectable treatments, side effects such as bruising, swelling, pain, numbness and tingling may be experienced. It is strongly advised to have this treatment done by a trained professional under medical supervision.
