Fat Dissolving Injections
Esteem Clinic is proud to offer its clients a clinically proven, non-surgical procedure to remove the unwanted fat underneath the chin, often referred to as a “double chin”.
Esteem’s fat dissolving injections are a non-surgical solution to eliminating stubborn fat cells that do not respond to diet and exercise. This treatment is safe and effective in removing moderate to severe ‘submental’ fat (the fat found under the chin), helping to contour the jawline and sculpt the chin.
This is a simple procedure where deoxycholic acid is injected into the treatment area dissolving and eliminating the fat cells within that area. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
The injectable prescription medicine used in the chin sculpting treatment is TGA-approved and has been clinically proven. It is made by a global manufacturer of leading brands and best-in-class products.
In the Spotlight
How it works
Fat dissolving injections target and effectively reduce the small and stubborn fat pocket under the chin, providing a tight and more sculpted appearance. The treatment is often described as ‘non-surgical liposuction’ because of its effective ability to reduce fat without surgery.
The injections contain deoxycholic acid, which when injected into the treatment area dissolve and eliminate the fat cells within that area. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
Once the targeted fat cells are eliminated from the body, fat can no longer be stored in the injected area, and fat tissue under the chin is reduced.
Esteem’s chin sculpting, fat dissolving injections utilise a product that is TGA approved, clinically proven, and produced by a leading industry supplier, who has provided effective, well-tolerated and the highest quality of products globally for over 30 years.
What to expect
The injections may sting for a few seconds, and in most instances we will use a numbing agent to reduce discomfort. Treatment time lasts for 30-60 minutes, plus a consultation time.
It is likely that you will experience some discomfort, bruising and swelling of the treated area for a number of days, so we advise to allow a 3 day social downtime period following your treatment. You will able to resume daily activities shortly after your treatment, with the exception of avoiding exercise for a few days.
A review appointment is required two weeks after treatment.
You should avoid microdermabrasion, chemical peels and needling in the area for at least 3 months post treatment.
A significant reduction in the submental fat underneath your chin, achieving a more sculpted, aesthetically pleasing appearance. This submental fat is usually caused by ageing, genetics or weight gain and unfortunately, diet and exercise often does little to remove it. So the removal of this fat is often a very liberating experience for clients.
Chin sculpting results are usually seen after two treatments, four to six weeks apart. Keep in mind these results will vary from person to person.
