What causes a double chin or submental fullness?

Submental fullness is also known as a ‘double chin’. It can be caused by:

AGEING – It can naturally develop as patients age

GENETICS – It can be part of a patient’s DNA

WEIGHT CHANGES – It can appear as a result of weight change

Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the fullness in this area may not go away – and it may make you feel like you look older and heavier than you actually are.

How does the double chin treatment work?

It is an injectable treatment that improves the appearance of a double chin. The treatment contains a substance called synthesised deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid also occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected below the chin, it breaks down fat cells, resulting in a more contoured neck profile and jawline.

The treatment will reduce pre-platysmal fat within the treatment area (see image below).

What does the treatment involve?

This double chin treatment is typically given in a 45-minute in-clinic treatment session. Your clinician will administer a series of injections into the area under your chin at each session.

How many treatments will I need?

Many patients treated will experience visible improvement of their chin profile in 2–4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve their best results. Sessions are spaced no less than 1 month apart. Once your desired results are achieved, additional treatments may not be needed as results are maintained for at least 4 years.

What does it feel like?

Most patients experience mild or moderate pain or discomfort at the time of the injections. Prior to the treatment, your clinician will apply a supercool mix of ice and alcohol to make you more comfortable.
