What’s our awareness like about the double chin?

Australians with a double chin recognise that weight contributes to the issue however less Australians are able to identify ageing and genes as the other main causes of a double chin.

The power of Chin Sculpting as a clinically proven treatment to permanently reduce the appearance of a double chin.

Our non-surgical double chin treatment reduces fat under the chin and contours the neck and jawline via a series of fat dissolving injections.

Every Chin Sculpting treatment is individualised. The number of injections and sessions required varies patient to patient as treatments are personalised to your own anatomy to provide the most effective, customised results.

After an initial consultation of 30 minutes to discuss your expectations and suitability, your personal Chin Sculpting program will begin with two initial sessions of 30-60 minutes each. Sessions are spaced four-six weeks apart and you may require up to six sessions for optimum results. Post treatment downtime will vary, but some swelling and discomfort is normal. Visible fat reduction can be expected in two-four sessions.
