Allergan, a leading international pharmaceutical company has developed an injectable innovative product which has transformed how submental fat deposits under the chin are treated.
A double chin can often have nothing to do with body weight, it may be related to ageing or genetics. It is often diet and exercise resistant and can be stubborn to remove. Under chin fullness can make you look older, heavier, or unhealthier than you really are. We now offer a non-surgical injectable solution to melt away those stubborn fat deposits and redefine your jawline.
Under chin/neck fat is a very common concern for both men and women. With the selfie epidemic and the multitude of photos on social media people often take photos of themselves side-on or from up high and can feel subconscious about those pics!
Traditionally the treatment of double chins has been challenging, people opting for surgical liposuction, which is invasive and has considerable downtime, but now non-invasive treatments such as CoolSculpting® Mini and the Allergan under chin fat injection treatment are safe effective non-surgical options. All these options are available at Cosmetic Image Clinics and have pros and cons. Which procedure you decide on will depend on the results you want to achieve and our experienced medical aesthetic team will discuss these options with you during your consultation, and help you make the choice that’s best for you.

Does Cosmetic Image Clinics offer any combination therapy Jawline Rejuvenation packages?
Traditionally, it has been challenging to rejuvenate sagging of the neck and deepening horizontal neck lines, however technology and anti-ageing techniques are improving and evolving rapidly and often utilising a combination of therapies helps provide superior outcomes.
As the neck skin loses its elasticity it tends to droop and sag, which is an issue that plagues both men and women. The build-up of fat under the chin (submental fat) and sagging, commonly known as ‘turkey neck’ or ‘gobblers chin’ can cause us to be self-conscious of how we look and turtle necks are not always a fashion option.
Whilst individual types of treatments can have good results, we have found that by doing a combination of therapies our patient’s results are even better. With this in mind, we have created the Neck Revival Package to offer maximum results.
Package Cost is $2500 – a total cost for individual treatments is $ 3010 a SAVING of $ 510 when taken as a package. A great saving compared to taking treatments individually.
We also offer an add on treatment to the Neck Revival Package – ‘Fractora’ fractional resurfacing treatment for just $100. Normally $187.50.
