Neck Fat Reduction – Double Chin Removal
Neck Fat Reduction
Do you take your selfies angled from above? Do you try to pout or suck your cheeks in when you’re snapping those selfies? A poorly defined jaw line and neck contour can lead even the most confident of individual to seek out ways to minimise the appearance of the dreaded double chin.
A double chin can be a reality for even healthy men and women who are otherwise in great physical shape. There are no workouts or diet plans that can effectively target and remove fat on the neck area.
At Allure Cosmetic Clinic in Toowoomba, we offer a number of treatments that can help to remove and reduce the appearance of neck fat. Surgical options, including liposuction and neck lift surgery, are very useful tools. They are quite often the preference when men and women are looking for a single procedure, and they can afford the recovery period with these invasive surgical options.
We offer several non-surgical treatments that can address the double chin.
CoolSculpting to reduce a double chin
We have been successfully using CoolSculpting since 2014. This non-invasive procedure can prove to be effective at reducing neck fat. The targeted fat will be drawn up into the applicator. CoolSculpting freezes the isolated fat. The cooling procedure targets the fat cells. The result, typically seen within 8 to 12 weeks, will be the fat cells dying and being naturally absorbed by the body.
A slimmer and trimmer neck is the result.
Fat dissolving injections to treat double chins
A breakthrough treatment for double chins comes in the form of an injection that can target fat cells in a similar way to CoolSculpting. The injection permanently destroys the fat cells, to provide the aesthetic results that you are looking for.

Double Chin Injections for Neck Fat Reduction FAQs
What is the active ingredient in the injections?
The active ingredient in this treatment for neck fat is a naturally-occurring substance called deoxycholic acid. This ingredient is a bile acid and is what the body uses to naturally digest any fat in the diet. The deoxycholic acid that we use is not sourced from animals. It is a synthetic substance.
Am I good candidate for this procedure?
The ideal candidate is the adult, over 18 years of age, with moderate to severe fat seen under the chin. You may not be a suitable candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Those who have issues swallowing or have an infection may not be suitable for this treatment.
Be sure to always disclose your complete medical history before undergoing any type of treatment, including non-invasive cosmetic procedures.
What can I expect during the treatment?
Once you are comfortable, we will map out the treatment area. We use a grid pattern to determine where to best inject. We will use a combination of local anaesthetic and ice packs to keep discomfort down. Your comfort is our priority. The treatment will be strategically administered through a series of injections. The number of injections that you will receive will depend on the area of fat that needs to be targeted and reduced.
How long does treatment take?
Each treatment will take around 60 min.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
This is a non-invasive treatment. Treatment does not require any downtime. You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after getting the injections.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience some temporary swelling and some numbness immediately after treatment. This is a completely normal and expected outcome from this procedure. The side effects should ease up within a day of your appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed will vary between individuals. In clinical studies, many were able to achieve visible results after just two treatments. In some cases, patients needed as many as six treatments in order to see their ultimate results. Additional treatments can be explored based upon how you respond to the initial injections.
Are the results permanent?
The targeted fat cells will be destroyed by the deoxycholic acid. Once they have been destroyed the cells will not be able to accumulate fat again. Once you have reached your aesthetic goals, you should not require further double chin treatments.
