Fat Dissolving Injections
Fat dissolving injections are a safe, effective fat dissolving injection treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results, which means you can banish those annoyingly wobbly bits. It can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.
Is it suitable for me?
If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight, but have isolated stubborn areas of fat then this type of injection might be suitable. Popular areas that we treat are double chins, love handles, inner thighs, upper arms and upper and lower abdomen. If you have significant overweight then it will not suitable for you as it will only target pockets of fat not general fat. A consultation with is needed to determine the correct treatment plan for you.
It is not suitable if you:
Have liver or kidney disease.
Have active skin problem in the area to be treated.
Are taking blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin.
How soon do you see results?
The number of treatments required varies depending on the size of the fatty deposit. Typically 1-3 treatments for small areas, such as the jowls and under the chin, and 2-8 treatments for larger areas such as the thighs. Treatments are spaced at 6 weekly intervals. Your result will show 5-6 weeks after your final treatment which is when you will have a complimentary review with your practitioner.
Are the results permanent?
Whilst the body can regenerate fat cells - the process is very slow. So once fat cells are removed from a localised area your results are as good as permanent. However, if you do not continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle then your body will put on weight in other areas of your body where fat cells remain.
What is involved in treatment recovery?
Immediately after treatment you may appear red and swollen with some bruising on the treated area. It works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling for 3-5 days. Therefore, if you intend to have a facial treatment, e.g. double chin where the swelling may be obvious, you may wish to organise time away from work or social engagements.
You will be able to reduce the swelling by using a cool pack wrapped in a clean cloth for a maximum of 20 minutes each day. You cannot use anti-inflammatory tablets for 48 hours after treatment as this will work against the treatment. The treated area may feel tender and firm for up to 8 weeks post treatment.
During recovery we recommend that you avoid:
Swimming pools, spas and saunas for 3 days.
Physical exercise for 10 days.
Any other aesthetic treatments for 2 weeks.
