Double chin fat injections Melbourne
Double chin fat injections (also known as Kybella) are a treatment available at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne to reduce stubborn fat under your chin. Reducing excess double chin fat improve the appearance of your chin and jawline, reduce a double chin, enhance the side profile and neck silhouette, and refresh the lower face.
The treatment works by using fat dissolving injections to break down fat cells, reducing your under chin fullness.
How it works
Bothered by your stubborn double chin fat? Feel like you have no jawline, especially when on Zoom meetings and FaceTime? Diet and exercise just not getting the result you want?

Having too much under chin fat causes a double chin, reduces jawline definition, and gives your face a heavy appearance. By using fat dissolving injections, double chin fat injections permanently break down the fat cells in the double chin area.

How to remove double chin fat in Melbourne
Double chin fat injections use compounds that are based on naturally occurring biological substances known as deoxycholic acid and phosphatidylcholine. These substances are found naturally in your digestive tract, and aid in the absorption of dietary fats.
To treat double chin fat, fat dissolving compounds are injected into the shallow pre-platysmal layer of fat. The compounds break down fat cells through a process known as adipocytolysis. The cells are then naturally cleared by the body over a 6-8 week period.
Most people can expect to need 2-4 treatments of double chin fat injections in Melbourne. People with larger volumes of fat generally need more sessions.
