FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What causes a double chin?
Aging, genetics and weight gain are the main causes of a double chin. Often diet and exercise are not always effective in removing the excess fat stored in this area, making it a particularly frustrating area of concern for many men and women.
How does it work?
The product that is injected into the chin area contains a substance found naturally in the body, that helps absorb fat in food.
When injected into the fat in the double chin area it permanently destroys the fat cells by a process known as adipocytolysis. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again. A little like a balloon that has popped cannot be re-inflated. The results are permanent.
A consultation with a SILK Laser Clinics Cosmetic Injector is the first step. During this initial consult your medical history and suitability will be discussed. By marking out the area your SILK Cosmetic Injector will determine how much product is required and the associated cost for the initial treatments.
A minimum of two treatment sessions, 5-6 weeks apart is required to obtain quality results and subsequent treatments may be recommended for some clients to obtain optimal reduction.
Prior to treatment the neck is iced for 5-10 minutes to numb the area and minimise discomfort. The number of injections varies between clients and most treatments are completed within 15-20 minutes.
Icing is recommended directly after treatment for a few minutes. Paracetamol can be taken but we do not recommend anti-inflammatories as the swelling reaction is desired for optimal results.
After this initial treatment a follow up treatment will be booked for 5-6 weeks’ time.
Are there side effects?
Swelling – We expect to see swelling around the injection area. This is a desired side effect as it means the treatment is working.
Temporary numbness under the chin – Approximately 50% of patients will feel numbness after treatment, with symptoms wearing off after 30 days on average.
Warmth and redness – 40% of patients will feel warmth or redness under the chin on the day of treatment.
Firmness under the chin – Studies show that 16% of patients will feel firmness or ‘induration’ under the skin after treatment. This is not a worrying symptom and resolves, on average, after 51 days.
Initial Treatment – 2 visits, 8ml $2396
Follow Up Treatments (if required)- minimum 2ml $599
