Fat-Dissolving Injection Treatment
Advances in technology have introduced an exciting and effective way to treat the common complaint of a double chin in adults, as an alternative to liposuction surgery.
Double chin reducing injections have been used extensively around the world for several years and are now available in Perth at Assure. It is the first TGA-approved non-surgical treatment that permanently eliminates the fat cells and improves the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat/fullness under the chin.
When correctly administered by a qualified cosmetic nurse or doctor, this injectable double chin treatment is safe, only minimally invasive and involves little downtime.
Double Chin Injections in Perth
Double chin injections are made below the chin to reduce fat and create a more contoured neck profile and jawline.
The product used is a substance that naturally occurs in the body. It breaks down fat cells and removes them permanently through the body’s own waste systems.
The treatment is customised to suit each individual patient and usually involves at least two sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The effect is long lasting, without retreatment expected.
Chin Contouring & Fat Reducing
Fullness under the chin is a common issue for many adults. A recent study showed around 70% dislike their neckline profile as a result of double chin concerns, despite diet and exercise.
Causes of a double chin include:
- Ageing – a reduction of muscle tone and thinning skin contribute to sagging, especially beneath the chin.
- Genetics – some people inherit a predisposition to fullness underneath the chin, and this can begin to show at a young age. Ageing can worsen this.
- Weight – weight gain can be a common factor for people with a double chin. Even a moderate gain may result in more noticeable fullness under the chin.
Double chin fat-dissolving injections are suitable for any adult with excess fat deposits under the chin. In patients with an excessive amount of loose skin, the treatment may not be suitable and other options may be considered.

Frequently Asked Questions
Double Chin Reduction
Double chin reduction injections involve a series of two treatment sessions, spaced at least 4-6 weeks apart. In some cases, additional treatments may be required where the patient has more significant double chin concerns or to achieve the desired result.
Depending on your individual needs, our cosmetic nurse will recommend a treatment plan to achieve your desired outcome.
Results become visible in some patients within 3-4 weeks after their first double chin injection treatment, while others may see results after the second session.
Firstly, an Assure cosmetic nurse will assess your neckline and discuss your personal treatment goals to determine the number of treatment sessions that will be required. They will discuss pricing, what’s involved and the timeline for your treatment.
Topical numbing cream is applied to the area to be treated followed by small injections to numb underneath the skin. Then a very small needle is used to inject small quantities of the product into the fat. Injections are made following a specially-designed grid pattern that is marked out under the chin.
The procedure takes approximately 15-20 minutes.
The product we use for our double chin reduction injections is produced by leading global pharmaceutical company, Allergan. It is the first TGA-approved non-surgical treatment that improves the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat/fullness under the chin.
The product contains a synthetic version of a substance that naturally occurs in the body. When injected under the chin, it works by a process called adipocytolysis, which destroys the entire fat cell by breaking down the cell wall. The fat is then transferred by the blood stream into the liver where it gets excreted out of the body. The treated fat cells will not regrow and are permanently eliminated from the body.
The product has been used on thousands of patients overseas before being launched into Australia.
Double chin reduction injections are well tolerated by most patients. Topical numbing cream and small deposits of anaesthetic are administered to the area and ice can also be applied immediately prior to treatment to help reduce discomfort and help to prevent bruising. Some patients report a dull aching sensation during treatment and for a few hours post treatment.
For optimum and safe results, it is important that double chin dissolving injections are administered by a fully-trained cosmetic professional. At Assure Cosmetic Centre, all injectable treatments are conducted by our highly experienced cosmetic nurses under the supervision of our team of Specialist Plastic Surgeons.
The most common side effect is swelling. Some bruising may also occur at the site of injection. An over-the-counter pain relief such as Panadol can be used to manage any discomfort. These effects are temporary and mostly resolve within a week. Your nurse will discuss this with you during your consultation.
While there is no significant downtime, some people may like to take a few days off work due to the expected swelling and bruising in the treated area which can last up to 1 week. You may also experience some numbness for a few weeks post treatment which is normal.
A double chin reduction treatment package costs $2,400, which includes two treatments with two vials used per treatment. In some cases, where more product is required, an added charge will apply.
If three or more treatment sessions are required, these will be charged at a discounted rate for each session.
For those not wanting to pay the package price upfront, we offer a pay-as-you-go option of $1,400 per session for two vials.
The charge for your treatment will be advised to you during your consultation and discussed before you go ahead.
