Fat dissolving injections are an injectable substance known as Deoxycholic Acid. Deoxycholic Acid is found naturally in the body and is responsible for breaking down dietry fat. When injected directly into fat cells, the product breaks down fat cells resulting in a visable reduction of volume in the area.
Fat dissolving injections improve the appearance of a double chin.
After treatment, you can expect to be slightly swollen and tender, this is a sign that the product is working.
Treatments results are best measured from 4-6 weeks post treatment.
Usually 1-2 sessions are required, some may require up to 6 treatments if there is a lot of volume in the area. Speak to your practitioner about how many sessions you’ll be likely to require, consultations are free.
We schedule half an hour appointments for this treatment.
Fat dissolving injections are relatively comfortable. The area is first numbed with local anesthetic, however, there may be some mild stinging, heat and dull ache sensation. Post treatment, the area will bruise and feel tender to touch. Patients have reported the treatment is more comfortable that anti-wrinkle injections!
Swelling and bruising occurs when having fat dissolving injections, this is a part of the process and means the treatment is working. Swelling is most prominent in the first 1-3 days. Swelling varies from person to person as does bruising.
Fat dissolving injections are a permanent reduction in fat cells in the treated area, however re-treatment is recommended every 4 years.
