What are Fat Dissolving Injections?

Fat dissolving injections, also called lipolytic injections or intralipotherapy, are an easy, painless, and non-surgical way to get rid of stubborn fat in certain body areas. These injections consist of deoxycholic acids, a synthetic version of a naturally occurring acid in the body. Deoxycholic acids disrupt the structure of fat cells and turn them into a liquid, making them easier for the lymphatic system to remove.

If you struggle to reduce fat in some areas of your body, this procedure is the easiest method to help you burn stubborn fat and recontour your face. 

Get rid of excess and stubborn fat in your body in minutes with fat-dissolving injections.

This treatment can be combined with the following procedures:

The combination of treatments can be discussed at your consultation following with the bespoke treatment plan.

It is also important to apply cold compress and start massaging the area gently from the day of treatment. The massage should be daily and should increase in strength as the swelling subsides.

For some people, once a fat cell is eliminated, it is never again in their body. The fat cell is irreversible. For others, it keeps them in shape. Also, it helps them have a leaner, more sculpted body shape with benefits that endure for two to four years.

Avoid strenuous physical activity for 48 hours after treatment since sweating can lead you to expel the solution from the skin, decreasing the procedure’s efficacy.

After your treatment, you should hydrate well and gently massage the touched regions. Most people don’t need it, but simple analgesia (Panadol/Ibuprofen) and ice treatment for 10 minutes per hour will make it more pleasant. Don’t apply lotions or other cosmetic operations to the region. Avoid alcohol for the first 24 hours after the treatment.
