What are fat dissolving injections?

Excess fat beneath the chin often accumulates as part of the ageing process and our genetics, not as a result of our diets or lifestyle choices. This means it can be extremely difficult to manage, leaving painful, invasive surgery as the only reliable option – until recently.

Now we have a treatment that can permanently destroy the fat cells beneath your chin, tightening the skin and contouring the jaw to deliver a slim and rejuvenated new look. Read on to find out all about our fat dissolving injections in Brisbane and how they can benefit you. 

Fat dissolving injections involve a digestive enzyme that when injected into unwanted fat cells, permanently destroys them. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they lose their ability to store and accumulate fat. The active ingredient targets fat by dissolving the outer covering of the cell. The dietary fat is then released into the bloodstream which the body naturally excretes.

Am I a good candidate for
fat dissolving treatment?

If you have a moderate body weight or are slightly overweight with stubborn, localised fatty deposits that you haven’t been able to lose, then you may be a good candidate for our fat dissolving injections in Brisbane. At your initial consultation, one of our experienced Registered Cosmetic Nurses will be able to confirm if the treatment is right for you.

Fat cells continue to break down 4 to 6 weeks after treatment and a minimum
of two treatments is required, spaced at least 6 weeks apart.

Are there any risks or side effects?

The most common side effects we see are mild and not permanent:

  • Swelling – we expect to see swelling around the neck as it means the treatment is working! The swelling is at its worst about 48 hours after the procedure
  • Temporary numbness under the chin – approximately 50% of patients will feel this slight numbness after their treatment, with symptoms wearing off after 30 days on average
  • Warmth and redness – 40% of patients will feel warmth or redness under the chin on the day of their treatment
  • Firmness under the chin – studies show that 16% of patients will feel firmness or ‘induration’ under the skin after treatment. This is no cause for concern and resolves, on average, after 51 days according to studies

Rare side effects such as temporary problems with a weak smile, weak facial muscles, and trouble swallowing have been reported to occur in a small 2% of people. This is due to variances in facial anatomy from person to person. The average time for this to resolve is 44 days.

What to expect when having double
chin injections in Brisbane?

If you choose to have your chin fat dissolving injection with us in Brisbane, this is what you can expect:


At your initial consultation, you will meet with one of our highly experienced Registered Cosmetic Nurses who will assess your facial features and spend time understanding your concerns. They will talk you through the procedure and ensure you have all the information you need before you decide to proceed with any treatments.

You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions and address any concerns you may have.

If it’s concluded that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment, we will take a series of photographs that form part of your medical history and document your transformation.


One of our Registered Cosmetic Nurses will mark out the area to determine the most effective injection points and then inject the fat dissolving product into the skin using an ultra-fine needle. As there is no discomfort there is no need for the use of numbing cream or local anaesthetic. The procedure takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes in total.


Most clients start noticing results after 4 weeks, with maximum results seen approximately 5 months after their last treatment. Results are assessed 6 weeks after each treatment to determine if any more injections are needed to achieve optimal results.

Yes they do. This specific drug used in the injections reliably removes fat and is a well-researched treatment with many excellent studies. It has been available in Australia since 2017 and about 5 years before that in Europe and the USA. Although originally used for double chin removal, we now use it to treat other small areas such as bra fat, knees and tummies.

Don’t worry, this procedure does not involve any pain or discomfort. So much so that we don’t even need to use numbing cream or local anaesthetic.

Most people achieve good results after 2 treatment sessions, however the precise number will depend on how much excess fat is present. Some patients only require 2, whereas others will require 4 to 6 treatments to completely eliminate their double chin. Results are assessed 6 weeks after each treatment to determine if any more are needed.

The fat dissolving injection we use at Jade Cosmetic Clinic is the only TGA approved non-surgical treatment for chin fat. It has undergone rigorous clinical evaluation, including phase 3 clinical trials involving more than 2600 patients worldwide.

The injection we use contains a fat-metabolising agent that is soybean-derived and naturally-occuring in our bodies. When it comes in contact with your fat cells, it destroys them. The targeted fat cells will not regenerate, which is why this is a permanent solution to double chin fat. Without the fat, your skin tightens and your chin and jawline appear slimmed and contoured.

Immediately following treatment you will have swelling in the treated area. The swelling is a positive sign that the treatment is working though. It will peak on day 2 and can last up to 2 weeks. You might also have a bruise or needle mark that can last about a week. Often the area will feel firm, numb, lumpy and sensitive to touch.
