Fat dissolving injections work by breaking down cell membranes to liquefy the fat cell, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system. The procedure consists of a set of injections (usually two), administered 3-4 weeks apart, whereby the targeted area is injected with a fat-dissolving solution.
At Aesthetics Lab, nothing is more important to us than your health and wellbeing.
During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly go through your medical history and rule out any contraindications.
This is a great opportunity to ask us any questions you may have. We always answer openly, with honesty.
Prior to your procedure, our cosmetic doctor will show you to a tranquil treatment room. after a pre-treatrment consultation, the area of concern will be marked out. The fat dissolving solution is injected using tiny needles into the fat pocket. The needles allow small areas to be tackled effectively such as double chin or jowls.
As Fat Injections are a non-surgical solution it means there are no general anaesthetic risks. As there are no incisions, stitches are not required and scarring is very unlikely.
Patients will typically experience minimal side effects when compared to more invasive procedures, such as liposuction. There are some temporary side effects, which include bruising, swelling, redness and irritation in the injection area. Sometimes it may feel slightly tender to touch, numb or itchy but these side effects usually subside after 1-3 days but may last up to 4 weeks.
A reduction in fat deposits can be seen after just one treatment, however, you may require additional treatments (up to 8) to achieve desired results.
A reduction in fat in the targeted area can be noted from 4 weeks post-treatment. The speed at which noticeable results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes; younger patients are more likely to see results after a longer period. In very small fat pockets, the desired results can already be seen after one treatment.
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why you should not undergo this treatment.
This treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is also not recommended for those people who have been diagnosed with lipodystrophy or any pathological conditions.
