CoolSculpting vs. Chin Up Double Chin Injections: Doctors Explain the Differences

Fat: we all have it. And even if we consider ourselves F45 devotees or clean-eating all-stars, so many of us still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that don’t seem to respond to any amount of diet or exercise.

Lucky for us, the recent rise of non-surgical fat-reduction techniques has blessed us with fat-blasting innovations such as CoolSculpting (aka cryolipolysis, a procedure that freezes and kills fat cells) and Chin Up™ (a fat-dissolving injection designed for “submental fullness,” or the stubborn double chin). But what does each one do? Is one better than the other for certain areas? Along with a conversation with your doctor, the below will help guide you in the right direction.

Which areas do they treat?

The first thing to understand is what Chin Up™ and CoolSculpting are each cleared to treat. Chin Up™ —an injection comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in our own bile—is FDA-approved for on-label treatment of submental fullness, aka a double chin. However, there are many off-label uses too, including the treatment of fat in the arms, love handles, knees and bra rolls, that have proven to be extremely effective. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for treatment in eight areas: the abdomen, flanks, thighs, bra fat, back, banana roll, upper arms and chin.

Who is a good candidate for each?

When it comes to deciding between these two fat-fighting treatments, New York dermatologist Paul Jarrod Frank, MD says it all depends on the amount of fat you are looking to remove from the treatment area. “With either of these fat-removal techniques, there is no best,” he says. “It’s all about finding the right procedure for the right client.”

Because CoolSculpting can only remove teacup amounts of fat, it’s best for those who are already in good shape, “but have select trouble spots, such as the love handles, abdomen, knees, arms, chin and thighs,” says Dr. Frank. As for what makes a client a bad candidate for CoolSculpting, Dr. Frank explains it’s when the client either has too much fat, not enough fat for the applicator to suction to, or when clients need several areas to sculpt.

“A good candidate for Chin Up™ is someone with fullness under their chin,” says New York plastic surgeon David Shafer, MD. “Usually, if you can pinch the fat between your fingers, it can be treated with Chin Up™.” However, according to Dr. Shafer, if you have minimal or no fat under your chin—along with loose skin—you might be a better candidate for a neck or facelift to tighten the skin. 

Another reason doctors opt for Chin Up™ instead of CoolSculpting: “It’s better for the smaller areas of fat that CoolSculpting can’t suction to,” explains Dr. Frank.

How does each one work?

The treatments are totally different—both in their method of fat-removal and their application. Chin Up™ is injected with very small needles—similar to those of Wrinkle Relaxers—or a cannula. Dr. Shafer says numbing cream is usually applied beforehand and, in some practices, a numbing medication is mixed into the Chin Up™ itself. “Once injected, Chin Up™ disrupts the surrounding fat cells which are then absorbed by the body.” As for the pain factor, Dr. Shafer says you shouldn’t feel anything worse than a mosquito bite.

CoolSculpting uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells and eliminate them via suction and cooling plates. The applicator is positioned on top of the treatment area, which is then cooled down until the cold temperatures numb the area (this takes only a couple of minutes). Once numbed, the fat cells beneath the surface continue to drop in temperature, bringing them to a point of irreversible damage (eventually, they are naturally expelled by the body). You’ll feel some coolness, suction and minor sensitivity, but your doctor may also massage the area for two minutes after the treatment in order to better disperse the fat cells for removal. Though quick, expect the massage to be more painful than the treatment itself. 

What is the downtime like for CoolSculpting and Chin Up™?

Both CoolSculpting and Chin Up™ are non-surgical, so you can expect little to no serious downtime with each. However, significant swelling will surface after a Chin Up™ treatment, and redness and numbness in the treatment area after CoolSculpting.

“With Chin Up™, clients can expect to experience some side effects such as, tenderness, bruising, temporary numbness and redness. They can also experience significant swelling, especially when treating that pocket of fat underneath the chin,” says Dr. Frank. Dr. Shafer notes that this swelling is temporary, “but it’s a good sign that it’s working.” After a CoolSculpting session, the treated area will feel extremely tender and numb—but that’s normal. “Patients can return to work and exercise right away, with only mild tenderness to the touch in the treated area for 1-2 weeks,” says Dr. Frank.

How long will it take before I see results?

About 2-4 weeks is required for clients to see the full results from Chin Up™, and the injections can be repeated for an enhanced effect. “It’s important to note that most clients need 2-3 treatments for the full effect,” adds Dr. Shafer. According to Dr. Frank, CoolSculpting results can be seen as early as 4-5 weeks post treatment and, final results are seen in 8-12 weeks. Multiple sessions are also usually required for ideal results. 

Are results guaranteed?

Dr. Frank says there are many non-responders to both CoolSculpting and Chin Up™. “For those areas that are resistant to fat removal, diet and exercise is the first step in terms to optimizing your body for contouring and contouring your shape. For those extra stubborn areas that do not see results from non-invasive fat removal options, a lot of my clients switch to a minimally invasive fat removal options like tumescent laser liposuction. Patients take this approach when they have already spent a lot of money and received non-invasive fat removal procedures, but were not good candidates in the first place.” “As with any plastic surgery procedure, the ultimate effect is dependent on continued healthy diet and exercise,” says Dr. Shafer.

How many treatments are needed?

Neither Chin Up™ nor CoolSculpting are one-and-done treatments. “It’s important to note that most clients need 2-3 treatments of Chin Up™ for the full effect,” says Dr. Shafer. “However, once the final effect is established, the results are permanent.” The same goes for CoolSculpting: “Patients may see up to a 20-30 percent reduction with one CoolSculpting treatment. Depending on how much fat is in the area it can take more than one treatment to see the results,” says Dr. Frank.

How much does it cost?

Pricing for both treatments vary on treatment size, location and client goals. According to Allergan, the cost for CoolSculpting typically ranges between $2,000-$4,000 for a personalized treatment plan depending on the number of areas being treated. The cost for Chin Up™ starts at $650 per vial but is dependent on treatment area and size, which then determines how many vials are needed.

The best aesthetic treatments for all ages from your 20s to 60s

What you can do to keep looking your best, regardless of your age.

In your 20’s

This is the time to start a skincare regimen with effective results. Look for products that contain high antioxidants, peptides, retinol, and use them with a daily sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to prevent further sun damage.

Gentle laser treatments, like Clear + Brilliant, are great for young skin.

Lasers can address pigmentation and increase skin porosity, so you get the most from your products.

Collagen-boosting treatments like microneedling will also make a long term difference making the skin healthier and more resilient and looking extra plump and glowy.

It’s likely that you won’t need any structural filler in your 20’s however you may want to add some volume to your lips with dermal fillers.


Clear + Brilliant / $350 per session including Healite II Tretament
SkinPen® Microneedling / $350 per session
Plump Lips / $199 0.5 ml Premium Dermal Filler

 

In your 30’s

The first signs of ageing will appear unexpectedly and often around the eyes, forehead, and mouth/lip area.

To maintain your look we may recommend treatments such as:

Microneedling – to improve the overall tone, minimise sunspots, and promote collagen production for healthy, bright and smooth skin.

Chemical peels – to brighten skintone, increase skin tightening and improve the overall skin tone and texture.

Wrinkle Relaxers – to treat fine lines and proactively prevent the formation of deeper lines by limiting the muscle movements that cause wrinkles.

Treatments like laser resurfacing can effectively combat the early signs of skin sagging and laxity.


SkinPen® Microneedling / $350 per session
Mesoestetic Chemical peels / $110 each
Wrinkle Relaxers / from $130 per area
Laser Resurfacing / $350 per session

 

In your 40’s

Due to a decrease in collagen production and other natural structural elements, you may notice a loss of volume and reduced elasticity in the face.

Since cell turnover also slows down in your 40’s, your skin may also begin to lose some of its natural glow, resulting in a duller complexion.

Treatments to look for:

Wrinkle Relaxers, to reduce lines and give a smoother look.

Dermal fillers can minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and counteract the visible signs of volume loss by adding contour to the face to recreate the fuller look of younger skin.

Radio Frequency to counteract the loss of skin’s natural structure and stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, and can be administered on the face and body.

While gentle lasers are still effective, more aggressive laser treatments like laser resurfacing may produce better results in your 40’s for improving the tone of skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Wrinkle Relaxers / from $130 per area
Dermal Fillers / from $650
INFINI Radio Frequency + Microneedling / $600 per session
Laser Resurfacing / $350 per session

 

In your 50’s

When we reach our 50’s we continue to see loss of volume in the face and skin laxity becomes more pronounced.

As the face begins to sag overall, jowls can appear with the falling of the jawline and cheeks.

Lines can start to appear around the lips and we tend to lose lip volume.

Sun exposure and smoking can speed up the development of lines so make sure you are wearing high factor sunscreen.

Treatments to consider in your 50’s:

Volumising dermal fillers, especially in the mid-face/cheek area to correct volume loss and lift the jowls.

Wrinkle Relaxers for the treatment of lines and wrinkles in the face and neck.

Collagen stimulators not only corrects wrinkles and folds but also stimulates your own collagen production to really treat the underlying causes of facial ageing. The effects are gradual and longer-lasting giving you a natural youthful appearance.

Thread lifting, a ‘non-surgical’ face and neck lift treatment using sutures such as Silhouette Soft to lift and tighten the skin by stimulating new collagen production, reducing wrinkles, tightening pores and creating volume.

Erbium resurfacing lasers: These more aggressive lasers can combat the increasing signs of sun damage and improve overall skin texture.

Radio Frequency, a non-invasive procedure to tighten and lift the skin on the face and neck, making it a good alternative to a traditional facelift. It relies on Radio Frquency to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment resulting in tighter, smoother and more lifted skin.


Wrinkle Relaxers / from $130 per area
Dermal Fillers / from $650
Collagen stimulators / from $800
Sillhouette Soft Thread Lift / from $990
INFINI Radio Frequency + Microneedling / $600 per session
Laser Resurfacing / $350 per session

 

In your 60’s

Some women select surgical options (blepharoplasty, facelift, necklift) to address age-related concerns and bring more youthful contours back to the face, but you can also restore volume to your face with a variety of nonsurgical treatments.

Wrinkle Relaxers. The aim is to soften the lines helping look fresher and rested. Anti-wrinkle injections can be also used to treat upper lip lines and to prevent the mouth corners from downturning.

Dermal fillers to replace the volume that has been lost. Volume loss causes marionette lines to form, the cheeks to flatten and for you to develop nasolabialfolds.

We aim to correct this volume loss and revert the shape of the face towards the inverted triangle that was present in your younger years.

Collagen stimulators to stimulate the formation of your own collagen for subtle, but noticeable results. They are injected deep in the dermal layer to reinforce your skin’s structure and to restore fullness and face contours.

The Silhouette Soft Thread lift (non-surgical facelift) is a minimally invasive treatment to redefine facial contours and combat sagging skin with immediate results.

If you aren’t a candidate for a facelift, you can still undergo a facial rejuvenation procedure using a skin resurfacing treatment that can smooth out lines and wrinkles, and also improve the texture and tone of your skin.


Wrinkle Relaxers / from $130 per area
Dermal Fillers / from $650
Collagen stimulators / from $800
Sillhouette Soft Thread Lift / from $990
Laser Resurfacing / $350 per session

Are Microtreatments The Best New Beauty Procedures?

Microtreatments are quite a new concept in Perth and in Australia, but thousands of women over the world claim they create better results than any other option on the market today.

In most instances, microtreatments do not involve any surgery, and you can be in and out of the clinic in a matter of minutes or hours. Injections will be involved for the best outcomes, but that’s much better than going under the knife to achieve your aesthetic goals.

If you’re still not convinced about microtreatments, here are some examples of the type of concerns they can address and the benefits.

 

Improving crow’s feet and frown lines

Crow’s feet and frown lines can make people appear much older than they actually are. So, it makes sense that you will want to smooth them out as soon as they appear on your face (or before they do). While there are many moisturisers available on the market that claim to produce those results, few of them cut it in terms of real results.

There are also surgical options, but there is no need to spend that much money or put your body through such an invasive experience. Microtreatments are the perfect solution and can usually be administered in your lunch break with little downtime.

We encourage clients to book a consultation appointment with our Doctors first, so you get all the information you require about the best ways to kick those tired eyes to the curb.


Wrinkle Relaxers / from $130 per area

 

Smoothing and tightening the skin

When the skin on your face and neck becomes flabby and loose, you will begin to look old before your time. Again, there are lots of surgical solutions available, however, most experts agree there is no need to opt for something like that now we have microtreatments on the scene. Our Doctors will take a look at your concerns and then offer advice on the best microtreatments to address them.

That will often involve the use of cutting-edge creams and moisturisers, and you might also benefit from cosmetic injectables like wrinkle relaxers or skin treatments like laser resurfacing.

Treatments like laser resurfacing can effectively combat the early signs of skin sagging and laxity.


Mesoestetic Chemical peels / $110 each
Wrinkle Relaxers / from $130 per area
Laser Resurfacing / $350 per session

 

Creating the illusion of high cheekbones

Microtreatment Doctors now offer cheek enhancement services that can help you to create the illusion of high cheekbones with dermal fillers. While it’s a temporary solution lasting 9 – 18 months before a top is due, you’re guaranteed to become the envy of your friends.

If you want to assess the results for yourself; book a complimentary consulatation to see if the treatment could benefit you. Some people spend thousands of dollars with plastic surgeons to get those desirable cheeks, but there are much more affordable options with correct combination of microtreatments.


Dermal Fillers / from $650

The treatment:

Laser resurfacing uses ablative lasers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars, even pigmentation, tighten skin and remove lesions. Erbium laser skin resurfacing with Lutronic’s Action II is the treatment of choice for clients who want to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance of their skin. This treatment successfully removes superficial lines to moderately deep wrinkles with less pain, fewer side-effects, and a more rapid recovery than more aggressive treatments.

The laser precisely ablates the outermost layer of the skin to reveal the underlying skin that is smoother and younger looking. The procedure also activates collagen to promote further tightening of the skin. Our Talent will precisely remove the necessary layers of skin to eliminate or reduce superficial to moderately deep lines and wrinkles.

The benefits :

  • Resurfacing with ablative lasers is considered one of the gold standard methods for facial rejuvenation.
  • It can promote the improvement of facial wrinkles, skin pigmentation, and skin texture.
  • The usual treatment delivers short downtime and few side effects.
  • It is possible to have significant improvement of the facial photodamaged skin after just one session.
  • Erbium laser skin resurfacing has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen, which further smoothens and tightens the skin.

Erbium laser skin resurfacing has been found safe and effective for the treatment of fine lines and moderate wrinkles. Clients who have previously had laser skin resurfacing can also enhance their look and improve their self-confidence now find themselves with greatly improved, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

More Information

Using Spectra Laser Toning to Manage Melasma

Melasma is a skin condition that primarily affects women and is characterised by dense freckling, odd swaths of tan, or blotches that are caused by a local overabundance of melanocyte – a type of pigmentation cell. Although it can arise spontaneously, melasma can also be brought on by pregnancy or sun exposure.

Regardless of why it emerges, however, melasma can be a source of discomfort, anxiety, and self-consciousness. Consequently, many affected individuals look to find ways to manage their melasma. This is easier said than done since melanocytes live on multiple layers of skin. Surface-level treatments like microdermabrasion can’t reach them and some laser treatments can actually make melasma worse by provoking the melanocytes into producing excess pigmentation.

This is where the Spectra Laser Toning comes in. Laser toning is a unique treatment for melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation as it uses the laser energy to reduce visible pigmentation by breaking down melanin molecules naturally, allowing your immune system to remove them.

Face with melasma before and after

Melasma Management

1. Avoid triggers

Sun exposure can trigger melasma because melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) in the skin are responsible for producing melanin (pigment) and are stimulated by UV rays from the sun. Darker skin individuals have more active melanocytes and so produce more pigment than people with light skin. Melanin production increases when stimulated by sun exposure. The main reason for melasma returning after it has faded is sun exposure; even small amounts can trigger melasma. For this reason it is very important to use a broad spectrum (protects from UVA and UVB rays) and has a SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 or more.

2. Melasma treatments

Melasma sometimes resolves or fades on its own, especially after pregnancy or discontinuing birth control pills. If, however, you have persistent melasma we offer various treatments to manage it:

  • Skin Care Products (take home & in-clinic treatments)
  • Chemical Peels
  • Spectra Laser Toning

It may take several months for improvement to occur so it is important to follow up with our skin care staff and to follow their recommendations in order to maximize the benefit from melasma treatment. SKYN® offer a wide range of melasma treatments to help with this condition. In addition, our experienced Talent can recommend quality cosmetics that will not trigger melasma.

The Benefits of Laser Toning

The key to Spectra laser toning lies in a carbon facial mask. The mask allows the carbon to seep into your pores and the laser heats it up, resulting in a tiny explosion that dislodges debris and dead skin. Don’t worry, though, it’s not a painful treatment. In fact, not only is the Spectra laser toning painless, it’s downtime-free. You can come in for your session, go home after, and enjoy your skin to its fullest without any follow-up medication, downtime, or recovery period.

The reason that this treatment can affect melasma is that the darkened patches are due to clusters of melanocytes. When it comes to cells, few things are better at breaking up clumps than precise laser application combined with concussive force. As the carbon “pops” and the laser passes over, the melanocytes loosen and drift apart to become more evenly spaced and naturally disposed of.

Laser Toning for Radiant Skin

Laser toning has other key benefits, in addition to helping manage your melasma. The treatment can provide glowing, youthful skin, reduce acne scars, improve skin texture, reduce fine wrinkles, and more. These are long-lasting, ensuring you can get maximum enjoyment from your rejuvenated face.

SKYN® is a pioneer in the latest technology and practices for treating various skin conditions. Our Spectra Peel toning laser is just one tool dedicated to helping you get the clear, beautiful skin you deserve. Contact us to book a complimentary consultation today, our skin experts are more than happy to answer any queries you may have.

Is injectable skincare the future of cosmetics? Rise of skin boosters explained

As consumers become more savvy with their shopping and competition among cosmetics giants rages, many are looking out for the next big thing when it comes to their complexions.

While injectables such as wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers are increasingly commonplace, the likes of skin boosters remain shrouded in mystery for the most part.

The concept is simple – rather than slathering on hydrating ingredients and vitamins via a cream, an aesthetician injects them for superior penetration and lasting effects.

Daily Star Online spoke to Dr Pamela Benito about the rise of injectable skincare and its myriad of benefits.

“The injections are a combination of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and a little bit of hyaluronic acid, but the particles of the hyaluronic acid are very small,” she explained.

“It’s not a filler, it’s more to hydrate and plump the skin and can also help with pigmentation. The formula boosts collagen production, helps with fine lines and hydration – plus the vitamins give you that glow, making the skin radiant from within,” she continued.

“It’s a great option for people who aren’t ready for wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers but are still seeking rejuvenation. It’s suitable for younger people too, because minimising pores and improving texture is something everyone is after.”

Dr Pam recommends a course of three treatments for best results, spaced between three weeks to a month apart.

Results last up to nine months and then can be maintained with a top up every nine months, rather than another course of three.

Skin boosters can be used alongside the likes of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers but should be carried out two weeks apart from other injectables.

The Review

I’ve always considered myself to be something of a skincare aficionado, but skin boosters were definitely a step into the unknown.

Still, the process was a speedy one, with around a dozen shallow injections spread across my forehead, cheeks and chin within 15 minutes.

I was offered numbing cream upon arrival, but opted to forego it in order to get the grips with the level of discomfort that the procedure could entail.

Fortunately, there was very little pain involved, and while no injection is particularly pleasant, these never amounted to more than the sensation of a small scratch.

This was in part was helped by Dr Pam’s technique of massaging the area just before the insertion of the needle to relax the muscles.

However, Dr Pam did explain that there can be a higher level of discomfort with shallow injections compared to the deeper ones required for wrinkle relaxers and fillers because they sit closer to nerve endings.

Skinboosters

NON-INVASIVE: Skin boosters require no downtime

Nonetheless, given how non-invasive the treatment is, I was free to walk out of the clinic and do as I pleased, although was advised to avoid excessive exercise or alcohol to reduce the chances of bruising.

Having followed the advice, I suffered only one small bruise which was easily covered with concealer, and nobody would have been any the wiser I had been under the needle on the day of the procedure.

As for the results, I definitely feel I am sporting a ‘lit from within’ glow that most pale folks can only dream of.

Fair skin can often look drab, tired or washed out, so I was thrilled to find my face looking decidedly more radiant and fresh when dragging myself out of bed in the morning.

The end result is definitely a subtle one, though. If you’re looking for dramatic definition or plumpness, this isn’t going to deliver the goods.

However, if you want that ‘your face but better’ effect, skin boosters are fantastic options with results that can last up to a year.

THREAD LIFT, FILLERS or PRP. What’s best for you?

With an extensive menu of rejuvenation treatments now available, many are uncertain about the most suitable aesthetic treatment for their face. The issues facing those looking for non-surgical rejuvenation enhancement techniques are:

  1. what can be accomplished  
  2. the downtime
  3. how long the results can last

Some of our most requested face-enhancing, youth-reviving treatments are Dermal Fillers, the Thread Lift and PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma). Their benefits in terms of reducing lines and wrinkles, lifting and rejuvenating the skin have different suitabilities, depending on what the client desires.

The treatments are often use in combination or with complimentary treatments like INFINI RF + Microneedling, Laser Peels or Laser Resurfacing

 

Dermal Fillers

How Dermal Fillers work under your skin

 

Here is a quick rundown of what each of these aesthetic frontrunners do. Dermal Fillers are so called because they are made to fill the spaces in our skin which have lost volume with age, hereby showing signs of hollowness, lines and wrinkles. Most dermal fillers used nowadays are natural fillers, owing to their high safety profile and reversibility with a simple enzyme hyaluronidase. Owing to the advancements in dermal filler technology, fillers of different key strengths have emerged, each suited to deliver distinctive outcomes.

 

Dermal Fillers have a filling and sculpting capacity and can create enviable cheeks while restoring facial volume, while Skinboosters are targeted at replenishing the collagen stores of the superficial dermis, boosting their water content, immediately improving skin complexion.

 

Thread Lift

How Threadlifts work under your skin

Threadlifts have undergone several positive revolutions; previous threads used were poorly made and not absorbable.

 

Latest innovations such as Silhouette Soft Thread Lift use 100% bio-absorbable threads that stimulate the formation of a supporting collagen matrix that will anchor the lift as the threads disappear in the upcoming months.

 

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is famed for superb lifting capacity and utilises anchoring cones cleverly sited along lengthy Poly L-lactic acid threads and is known is the “Queen of all threadlifts”. If your aim is to have the maximal lift, then Silhouette would be the one for you.

 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

How PRP work under your skin

 

As we age our complexion can start to look tired and dull, one of the reasons is the reduction of platelets in the blood. The Angel PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) boosts the platelets to rejuvenate the skin, improving tone and texture. Extensive research has established a direct correlation between platelets and tissue growth.

 

PRP therapy draws on a patient’s own blood, using it to generate thicker, smoother and more supple skin in areas such as the face and neck, décolletage and hands, resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, blood is taken from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, before being reinjected into the treatment area. There, the activated platelets release growth factors, which facilitate cell growth, the formation of blood capillaries and, most importantly, the building of new collagen.

 

While the above treatments may have their fair share of loyal followers, we have scientifically broken them down to their pros and cons. Bearing in mind that your aesthetic goal may be different from another person, the same goes for capacity for downtime, discomfort etc. While this may serve as a guide, nothing will replace a good heart-to-heart talk with your trusted aesthetic doctor. It helps to visit a clinic that offers all treatments, so you can be assured that their recommendation will not be biased but rather be impartial.

How to get rid of a double chin without surgery

Heard of double chin injections? They’re one of the latest cosmetic treatments getting around, with celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian vouching for their effectiveness in sculpting the area under the chin.

And they’re gaining popularity for good reason. Until now there’s been only a handful of options for people who are looking to get rid of a double chin – exercises to help strengthen muscles, surgery (such as liposuction on the neck) to have the excess fat removed, or you can simply deal with it.

In a 2017 study by Allergan, which surveyed more than 3500 Australians aged 20 to 60 years old, it was found that having a double chin causes more concern than any other problem area for Australians of both sexes. What’s more, it was revealed that 57 per cent of those with a double chin have been thinking about treatment options.

This is where chin injections come in – they’re a non-surgical and non-invasive solution to treat this surprisingly common issue, with minimal downtime and permanent results.

Submental (under the chin) fat reduction, also referred to as a non-surgical chin lift or fat-dissolving injections, work to break down fat cells to improve the appearance of a double chin and sagging, creating a more defined jaw line.

“Fat dissolving injections have been really popular in my clinic,” says cosmetic nurse Kelly George from Kelly George Aesthetics. “What I’ve found is that I’m seeing women who have hated their ‘double chin’ or side profile for 20-plus years. After the first treatment, they can see and feel a difference, and they become really excited to see the treatment sessions through. The treatment increases their self-confidence significantly and I love seeing how their demeanour changes over the treatment period.”

What are fat reduction injections?

“Fat dissolving injections are a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid – a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown of fats in the body,” says George. “When injected into the pocket of fat under the chin, the fat cells are destroyed and metabolised by the body as waste products.” Once injected, these fat cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, meaning these fat removal results are permanent.

Is it painful?

Each treatment involves a series of small injections under the chin, which feel slightly uncomfortable (almost like a burning sensation). “The pain is very short-lived (peaks quickly and subsides within a few minutes),” says George. “Many patients liken the pain to green ant bites. We use a combination of pain relieving therapies to help patients through the treatment.”

Is there any downtime?

Downtime is minimal and you can usually expect some bruising and swelling around the treated area, however this should subside with a few days. “Swelling is significant for around two to four days, and bruising can last up to seven days. As a result, many patients prefer to stay at home for a few days,” says George.

Are there any risks?

As with any medical procedure, there are some risks involved with fat melting injections. “These risks should be discussed with you during your medical consultation to determine your suitability for this treatment,” explains George.

“Expected side effects include: bruising, swelling, pain and numbness of the area. Less common, but potential, more serious risks include nerve damage, which may cause a temporarily uneven smile and difficulty swallowing.”

How many treatments are required for optimal results?

While this varies from patient to patient, changes in the appearance of neck fat will generally become more significant with further treatments. George says best results are achieved with three to four sessions for women, and up to six sessions for men.

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

“Anyone with a pocket of fat under their chin with reasonable skin quality will benefit from this treatment,” says George. “If there is too much skin laxity (sagging) in the area, dissolving the fat could exacerbate the condition.”

Where can you get neck fat injections?

As it is a prescription-only treatment, double chin injections should only be administered by a registered healthcare professional. “Medical cosmetic clinics offer this treatment. You should always have a consultation with a medical professional to determine your suitability and to discuss associated risks,” says George.
