Get rid of that Double Chin with both surgical and non-surgical double chin treatments.
What is a double chin?
A double chin is also known as submental fat. It refers to the layer of fat that forms below your chin. The appearance of a “double chin” is a common problem in both men and women and can be extremely depressing as it is an area that is often resistant to diet and exercise.
What causes a double chin?
Double chins are the result of excess fat, skin that hangs/sags, weight gain, genetics, or skin becoming loose from the ageing process.
Types of treatments available
At Zen Medispa situated in Sydney, we offer both surgical and non-surgical methods to help get rid of this stubborn submental fat, resulting in a more sculpted jawline and a younger and slimmer you.
Jawline sculpting can be achieved by either traditional liposuction or non-invasive fat melting injections.
Our treatments for a double chin include:
Fat dissolving injections
This treatment is preferred by some individuals as it is non-surgical.
How do fat dissolving injections work?
This product is made up of deoxycholic acid (DA), which is a natural substance in the body that breaks down dietary fat. A series of DA injections are administered under the chin after a topical anaesthetic has been applied.
How long would it take to start seeing results?
Visible improvements are usually seen within 2 to 4 treatments which take place at least 6 weeks apart.
Are my results permanent?
Yes, once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat.
