How to get rid of a double chinPosted on by Niamh Corduff
What is a double chin?
Submental fat, also known as a ‘double chin’, is a common condition where a thickened layer of fat is present underneath the chin. Generally speaking, double chins are associated with weight gain and aging. However, some patients describe having had a double chin all their life and genetics can play a role.
A double chin can often make you appear older and overweight. This is why many people are looking for treatment. If you are looking for a way to eliminate your double chin, then you have come to the right place.
How to get rid of a double chin with help from CRC
A quick search on google suggests quite a number of different exercises you can try on how to get rid of a double chin. Some of these exercises include:
Straight cut; and a
However to be honest they are futile as the problem is a fat pad lying over the muscle layer, just under the skin and needs a different approach. We’re excited to offer our patients a brand new non-surgical fat dissolving injection treatment at the clinic. Once injected into the chin area it works to dissolve the fat cells to remove the appearance of a double chin.
The solution in fat dissolving injections is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid that naturally occurs in the body and helps in breaking down dietary fat.
The drug destroys the fat cell membrane and causes the fat in it to dissolve. The remnant of the destroyed fat cell is then absorbed into the body by normal metabolism.
How long will it take to get rid of my double chin?
For patients who are just having the injections and aren’t combining the injections with our Ulthera Treatment, a typical patient should begin to see results after 2-4 treatments. With treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Only a fully trained Doctor can perform this treatment. At CRC, Dr. Niamh Corduff performs all injectable treatments. To book in for a no obligation consultation with Dr. Niamh call the clinic on 5221 9920 or use the form below.
