Double-Chin Injections for Fat Reduction by Coco Ruby Skin Clinic Melbourne
Reduce Double Chin Skin Rolls of Fat under your Chin – the Non-Surgical Neck Lift alternative
The appearance of a double chin or fatty, sagging jawline or neckline can greatly detract from a youthful-looking face. In fact, studies revealed that nearly 7 out of 10 people above a certain age are concerned about the appearance of their necks. Subjects in a large study reported primarily disliking the excess fat or skin folds that accumulate under the chin area and along the jawline, often with age or weight changes. This leaves an unwanted ‘double chin’ appearance or an indistinguishable chin and jawline. Facelift surgery and Neck lift surgeries are serious surgical procedures that can have substantial downtime and may be recommended.
But there are two other ways you can reduce your double chin appearance: one, with a chin implant (if warranted) or jawline enhancement. Two, with double-chin treatment injections to reduce the fat cells in that area of your jawline/neckline.
Can you get rid of a double chin with injections?
You’ll need to see a Plastic Surgeon or talented Cosmetic Doctor like Tina Purdon, to assess which option might be better for your concerns.
- But fortunately, surgery isn’t the only way to go for some patients with mild double-chin appearances.
- There’s now a cosmetic injection option to help reduce under-chin fat and enhance or strengthen the contours of your jawline.
- These are known as ‘under chin injections’ – they use a solution that became popular in the USA after it received FDA approval (2015).
- It’s now available in Melbourne and throughout Australia, but be very careful about who you choose to perform these injections.
Double-Chin Fat Reduction Injections are a prescription cosmetic medical treatment that can improve the appearance and profile of the chin, jawline and/or neck area for treatment-suitable patients.
Candidate Criteria: Suitable conditions for double-chin injection treatments
- These injections are best used for reducing mild or moderate submental fat stores below the chin (submental fat)
- They and less effective if the amount of under-chin fat is severe OR
- If there is substantial skin laxity as well as fat accumulation beneath the chin or jawline area BECAUSE
- If there is laxity and under-chin fat, the results of reducing fat are typically more noticeable laxity – which could look worse
Ask your Practitioner for the PROS and CONS of having this treatment if you have BOTH conditions, and make an informed decision
- Your alternative might be chin augmentation, a facelift with a neck lift, or some other procedure
- IF, however, you are a good candidate for these injections, you might find the minimal downtime and reasonable costs make this a good alternative to surgery (select patients only).
Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing offer neck fat and double chin injections treatment (under-chin injections treatment.
Minimum treatment criteria

Methods for Neck Fat Injections (What is having neck are injections like?)
Non-surgical Neck Lift techniques using Double-Chin Fat Reduction Injections
- The treatment area is numbed using a local anaesthetic or other numbing methods including cool packs or ice packs.
- Ice packs/cool packs can also be used during treatment to reduce discomfort.
- A dotted grid is then over-layed onto the treated area and the numbing agents are removed/the area is thoroughly cleansed.
- The grid is designed for strategic injecting strategies.
- Each session usually means fewer injections as the fat area under the chin becomes reduced.
- Double-Chin Fat Reduction Injections are made into the submental fat below the chin
- The area is retreated at 6-week intervals for approximately 3 treatments (this can vary from patient to patient)
- The long-term result is considered a permanent reduction of under-chin fat – leaving you with a clearer, firmer-looking jawline and chin area
- These cosmetic injections can provide you with more youthful neck and jawline contours – without surgery – as long as you have good collagen in your skin
- If your skin is lax, then a surgical neck lift or facelift and neck lift maybe your best alternative to Double-Chin Fat Reduction Injections below the chin
Double-Chin Fat Reduction Injections below the chin
- For patient comfort, cool packs such as ICE packs can be applied before or during the treatment.
- Cool packs are also a great idea for after the Double-Chin Fat Reduction Injections to the submental fat under the chin/upper neck area.
- Injections are made very carefully in the designated treated area.
- The under neck injection procedure is repeated at approximately 6 weeks after the first treatment.
- Most patients require 3 or more treatments but every patient is unique and treatments are fully customised.
