Fat Dissolving Injections

The Basics

Fat Dissolving Injections are the latest non-surgical treatment to hit Australian shores. Fat dissolving treatments at Cosmos Clinic can be used to effectively reduce the appearance of chin fat that causes a stubborn double chin. Fat dissolving injections destroy the membrane of the fat cells to minimize the appearance of fat in the double chin area.

The Procedure

Tiny, precise injections are administered into the submental area. Numbing cream (local anesthetic), and ice packs and small needles are used to minimize discomfort. Procedure takes up to 30 minutes.

Suitable for men and women over 18 years of age

The Results

Fat reduction is visible 6 weeks after your 2nd treatment. Fat dissolving injections cause fat cell breakdown, meaning the can no longer store or accumulate fat 1

Top Fat Dissolving Injections Questions

What is Submental fullness?

Submental fullness refers to the excess fat  under your chin area. Submental fullness can be caused by:

  • Ageing
  • Genetics
  • Weight Changes

Patients with Submental Fullness (a double chin) may feel like they look older and heavier than they actually are. In a recent survey, 60% of Australian women said they are concerned about a double chin.

What are fat dissolving injections for Submental Fullness?

Cosmos uses the latest fat-busting injectable drug.  Developed by the pharmaceutical company Allergan, the treatment provides:

  • Clinically Proven: Reduces the appearance of submental fullness (double chin fat)
  • Customised Results: Injectable treatment tailored to suit each patient’s needs and circumstances
  • Contoured Profile: More than 75% of patients reported satisfaction with the appearance of their face and chin. Feeling happier and younger, less embarrassed and less self-conscious (*Results may vary from patient to patient)

The treatment is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid; which is a naturally occurring molecule produced in the body to aid in the absorption of fat. When it is injected into the tissue below the chin, it disrupts the fat cell membrane.  As a result, the cells breakdown and release their fatty contents. The body then naturally metabolises and excretes this fat. This breakthrough non-invasive double chin treatment provides another option to the growing number of patients wanting to address this stubborn area. These double chin injections provide patients with treatment options beyond invasive procedures.
