As a guide:
Submental fullness refers to the excess fat under your chin area. Submental fullness can be caused by:
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.
Cosmos uses the latest fat-busting injectable drug. Developed by the pharmaceutical company Allergan, the treatment provides:
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.
Like dermal fillers, Fat Dissolving Injection procedures take approximately 20-30 minutes and patients have up to 50 small injections during one treatment session.
A template is applied to the target area to ensure even distribution, whilst avoiding anatomical landmarks
A series of small injections are administered. When injected correctly, all the healthy cells around the submental fat, remain intact and unaffected, as well as nearby nerves and muscles. With proper care and precision, the chin and neck area can be effectively treated – resulting in a slimmer chin profile.
Fat Dissolving Injections are suitable for both men and women over the age of 18. Ideal candidates will have to have excess fat under their chin, which could either be from weight gain or genetics.
It is another non surgical option for those who want to reduce their double chin but are not suitable candidates for Cool Sculpting treatments (Cool Sculpting applicators are a fixed size which may not fit everyone) or for those who do not want to undergo surgical procedures such as liposuction, full facelift or other invasive surgery.
Most patients experience mild to moderate pain to the area being treated. However, to reduce discomfort, the cosmetic injector will numb the area pre-treatment.
Please note that the most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. All of which will have to be resolved before subsequent treatments.
The number of treatments required to achieve good results will depends on how much submental fullness the patient has. But many patients have experienced visible improvements within 2 to 4 treatments. Patients can have up to 6 treatments of fat dissolving injections administered to achieve the best result. (*Results may vary from patient to patient).
Consecutive treatments can be done every 4-6 weeks, and this will ensure superior results.
Results are long-term and long-lasting, and most patients will not undergo further treatment for at least 4 years
In most cases, visible results are seen at around 4-6 weeks after your second treatment (*Results may vary from patient to patient), and with each subsequent treatment further improvement is seen.
