What areas can you treat with Fat Dissolving injections?

Fat Dissolving Injections are incredible compounds that work to break down the membranes of fat cells beneath the skin which are typically resistant to exercise. Commonly used :

  • treat submental fat (double chin)
  • pockets of fat around the abdomen/tummy area
  • Pockets of stubborn fat on the flanks of the arms

With a course of regular fat dissolving injections can yield permanent results.

What does Fat Dissolving Injections treat?

For stubborn pockets of fat which simply won’t shift, Fat Dissolving injections offer a long-term solution in the problem areas which bother you most. This is an excellent non-surgical treatment for people who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime but who are still struggling to tone specific areas of the body, like the stomach and ‘double chin’ area.

How does it work?

We start by numbing the skin to make the procedure as pain-free as possible, and then inject at various points across your problem area. The fat-dissolving product works to break down the membranes of the fat cells beneath the skin, causing them to become unstable and eventually flush out via the lymphatic system. This ‘flushing’ process may take around 6-8 weeks.

Is Fat Dissolving Injections for weight loss?

No, Celluform Fat Dissolving Injections are designed for body contouring, not for weight loss.

Common questions

  • Some mild discomfort may occur during treatment application due to the nature of this being an injectable treatment. We apply  a numbing cream 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 body treatments, 4-6 sessions.
    • For chin treatments, 1-3 sessions.

I have been coming to Viva Skin for just over a year and see Dr Rupert. I am always made to feel so welcomed from when I first step through the door to when I leave my appointment with the most relaxing vibe. Dr Rupert is incredibly knowledgable and understanding and will always listen and is always there for you if you need anything before or after my treatment. I have had to phone a few times to rearrange my booking and the team at the other end of the phone make it so easy and effortless I can’t recommend Dr Rupert and the team enough. Thanks again!
