What are Fat Dissolving Injections?

We are born with only a certain amount of fat cells which stays the same throughout our adult life. If you reduce their number from an area in your body, that area will not store as much fat and therefore weight can be reduced.

Research is not fully conclusive about how this treatment works, but there may be a number of reasons. Firstly, it appears that the cell membrane of the fat cell is damaged, so the fat leaks out into the lymphatic system where it is expelled from the body. Another explanation is that fat cells become inflamed and are destroyed by the body’s own immune system. A third explanation is that the fat cell is directly destroyed.

How many treatments do you need?

The number of treatments required will differ, depending on the results you are seeking. Visible results can be seen in 2-4 treatments, but some patients may need up to 6 treatments. Results should be noticeable a few weeks after your second treatment.

What happens before the treatment?

To be suitable for this treatment you must be fit and well, with no liver problems as this is the main area where the chemicals are processed. Blood-thinning medications such as anti-inflammatories and aspirin should be avoided prior to the treatment. Avoid alcohol the night before. Smokers should reduce their consumption, or try to quit.

You must see a doctor first – this is a specific advantage of engaging our clinic for any treatment.

What happens during the treatment?

The area to be treated must be clean and dry. The procedure takes approximately 15-30 minutes. It’s done with a series of injections to place the therapeutic product into the correct area. Numbing cream can be used to minimise discomfort, although most patients find ice the best form of relieving any discomfort.

What happens after the treatment?

We recommend you bring an ice pack to ice the area and keep it clean and dry. The area may become quite red and swollen. If this is excessive and feels very hot, or if you have a fever, please contact the clinic. We have never seen an infection from this procedure, but it is possible as in all procedures.

Recovery is extremely quick for this treatment, allowing you to return to work almost immediately. Results are variable and not immediate, so you must be patient.
