What is the new Double Chin Injection treatment all about, and are under chin injections worth it?
- This treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic injections treatment that reduces fat under the chin area while contouring the jaw/neckline.
- It can help you attain a more sculpted looking jawline area or reduce the double-chin appearance.
How does it work?
- Under chin area injections are administered using a grid to target specific areas of fat beneath the chin.
- The injected substance is a synthetic solution which already naturally occurs in our bodies to break down fat.
- The number of under chin injections used below the jawline/under the chin, and treatment results in that area, can vary from patient to patient.
- The general improvements attainable include a more refined chin line, jawline or neck line due to less fat in that area of the lower face.
- After an initial consultation to discuss the non-surgical treatment and to see if you are a suitable candidate, it may be performed on the same day or at a later stage.
What to expect during your Double Chin Injections treatment.

- This under chin injection treatment is performed in the rooms with local anaesthetic and ice to numb the area.
- After the injections are complete, the area can feel a bit stingy, like a “sunburn” type heat which settles over the day with slight redness of the skin.
- The area will swell and may bruise slightly at the injection sites. In fact, swelling is the sign that the treatment is working. How much will depend on your skin sensitivity – everyone will vary.
- You may also experience a jiggly feeling underneath the chin which can feel a bit odd at first; but is a normal side-effect.
- It is a good idea to work the treatment around any events you may have – that’s what makes this one of the Best Winter Beauty Treatments available in Melbourne.
