Double Chin

Injectable muscle relaxants work by relaxing the facial muscles that contracts and cause wrinkles such as frown lines,forehead lines and lines around the eyes (crows feet).

The result is not permanent because the nerve ending re-establishes it’s signaling by forming new nerve sprouts. This sprouting takes approximately 3-6 months, at which point the muscle regains its activity and the wrinkles begin to reappear.

Until recently, the only way of addressing submental fullness in Australia meant surgery. But for those not keen on the idea of liposuction or scalpels, we now have what Hollywood dubbed: ‘lipo in a syringe’.

Allergan has created the first and only FDA approved non-surgical treatment to contour and improve the appearance of submental fullness, also known as a double chin. It contains synthesised deoxycholic acid, an acid that occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

The revolutionary injectable product effectively destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin, resulting in a firmer, sleeker, and more youthful neck contour.

Once destroyed, the results are permanent, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile and more defined jaw line. Dr. Ansulette Kay is one of the few doctors qualified to perform this double chin treatment in Australia.

Dr Ansulette Kay will use a tiny needle to do the injections, which only take a few minutes, and will cause minimum discomfort. There are generally no recovery period, the risk of bruising and swelling is very low. The treatment will take effect over 3 to 5 days, with full results visible at 2 weeks. Results last at least 3 months if correct dose is used.

Essentially you need fat for the treatment to work, as opposed to loose or saggy skin.Those with good skin quality and mild, moderate or severe submental fullness, are the best candidates for this treatment.

You Might Good Candidate Candidate If
Double chin injections are not suitable if you:

The actual treatment consists of a number of injections, customized to suit you, and once the area is numbed, only take a few minutes. Dr Ansulette uses both topical and local anaesthetic the ensure that the injections cause minimal discomfort during treatment, but the area will be swollen and tender for a few days post treatment.

We generally allocate an hour appointment to treat submental fullness. This allows time for pre treatment questions, numbing procedures, post procedure care, etc. The actual treatment typically is 20-30 minutes.

Most candidates will need 2 to 4 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. Results will only become visible after the second treatment, so when considering costs, do keep this in mind. The number of treatments you will need depends on the fullness under your chin. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.

Swelling is an indication that the treatment is working, and will be very noticeable for the first 3 -7 days. Its best to plan ahead and book treatment at least 2 weeks prior to social events. It is also common to experience bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area, We recommend using panadol and ice to reduce this discomfort as needed. Dr Ansulette often performs double chin treatments on Thursday afternoons or Friday mornings, and advises clients to take the weekend ‘off’ as far as work and social functions go, unless you are happy to share your treatment journey with others. Downtime seems to be decreased with subsequent treatments.
