Double Chin Treatment


SOMETIMES LESS IS MORE.

Whether it’s because of ageing, genetics or perhaps a little extra weight, the double chin is a feature most people do not find desirable.

Sitting below the jawline, the extra pillow of fat that creates the appearance of an ‘extra chin’ usually makes people feel and look older or heavier. And, unfortunately, exercise and diet have little impact on making it go away. There has only been a couple of treatment options — deal with it, or go under the knife and have the excess fat surgically removed.

Until now. Architects of Skin is providing an innovative non-surgical option to achieve a more streamlined jawline.

The treatment involves the patient receiving multiple small injections of a special prescription drug in the problem area. The drug is known as Belkyra (Kybella®) and was approved for use in Australia in February 2018.

You will normally see results within 30 days after just one or two 15-minute sessions. The injectables do cause some swelling, redness and pain, which requires patients to have one or two days of downtime.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The injectable solution works in a similar way to how bile breaks down fatty foods in our stomach. The solution is a synthetic form of bile that ‘destroys’ fat cells so that the fat is consumed by the body. In addition, the body recognises this dramatic form of fat removal as an injury and launches into ‘repair mode’, causing new collagen to form under the chin, further tightening the area.

This treatment may not be for everyone, so please book a free consultation to discuss this treatment further with our highly trained physicians…
