Fat Dissolving Injections

It may sound too good to be true, but fat-dissolving injections can prove effective in the removal of excess fat! Our Celluform fat-dissolving injections target stubborn pockets of fat using active ingredient deoxycholic acid for long lasting results that leave your chin and jawline defined and sharp.

 

 

What is fat-dissolving?

Fat dissolving injections are incredible compounds that work to break down the membranes of the fat cells beneath the skin that are typically resistant to exercise using an acive ingredient called deoxycholic acid. deoxycholic acid works by disrupting fat cells making them unstable. These cells then begin to break down flush out through the body via the lymphatic system. This treatment can be permanent as part of a healthy lifestyle. Commonly used to treat submental fat (double chin) or fat around the jawline and jowls, fat dissolving injections can give dramatic results to help recontour the face. The ideal candidate for fat dissolving are those that have attempted a strict gym routine or balanced diet with little to no results. As well as though who have achieved significant weightloss but can not shift small stubbon pockets of fat.

 

How to get rid of a double Chin with fat dissolving injectons

Using fat dissolving product, Celluform, our doctors and nurses inject small amounts of deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Celluform, under the chin area with micro-fine needles. This procedure last up to 45 minutes and is relatively pain-less. There is swelling for up to two-three weeks after fat dissolving injections which is a common side effct of the treatment and a sign of the fat cells disrupting and flushing through the body. Fat dissolving injections are a great alternative to surgery as it works naturally with the body and is a great solution for those interested in fat reduction that has long lasting results on localised pockets of fat.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some mild discomfort may occur during treatment application due to the nature of this being an injectable treatment. We apply  a Topical anaesthetic to help with pain management should this be required.

Fat dissolving injections work by causing an inflammatory reaction, and therefore you may experience some swelling for up to 5 days post treatment. This is usually mild, and can be controlled using cool pads. Due to how the treatment works, you should not manage any side effects with anti inflammatory medicines as this will be counter intuitive to the treatment.

Other side effects:

You may notice some temporary reddening of the skin, or itching, but this is normal and will gradually reduce over a few days

Length of time for Results

You can expect it to take approx 2-3 weeks before you start to see a reduction in fatty deposits around the chin and jawline, giving a slimmer and less wobbly appearance to the face, helping to eliminate double chins. For larger areas, you will begin to notice the effects after 2-3 weeks, but should allow up to 8 weeks for the final result to be apparent.

How many treatments do I need?

Typically 1-3 treatments will be required to achieve your desired result, but this will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation along with your expectations. This treatment has a high patient satisfaction rate. We will only treat patients who are within 1 stone of their ideal body weight and around 3cm of pinchable fat, as this treatment is not intended as a weight loss solution.

This treatment should only be administered by a medical professional. Fat dissolving injections carry the CE mark, and have a strong safety record.

 

  • For chin treatments, 1-3 sessions.

Aftercare

  • After treatment there may be slight redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness or itching in the in the treated area. This is a normal result of the product/injection and can last 2-4 weeks.
  • Massage the treated area 2-3 times a day.
  • Avoid ice packs of heat.
  • Avoid strenuous exercises for at least 48 hours.
  • Maintain a healthy diet.
  • Numbness and reduced sensation in the treated often occurs and can persist for several weeks/months after the treatment. This always resolves spontaneously with time.
  • Do not wash the area or take a hot shower for 8 hours after the treatment.
  • Do not expose the treated area to intense heat e.g. sunbed, swimming, sauna, sunbathing or extreme coldness. A sauna before treatment can help to mobilise the fat. If it’s unavoidable to go into the sun, wear SPF 50 at all times.
  • Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours after treatment, as sweating will cause you to excrete the solution from the skin, which will reduce the treatment effectiveness.
  • Avoid alcohol for 48 hours to facilitate the liver in the handling of the fat.
  • Stay well hydrated by drinking 2 litres of water a day for the next week.
