Fat dissolving injections

Until recently, the only way to treat excess fat was through liposuction. Thankfully, there’s now a simple non-invasive option: fat dissolving injections. These injections can easily and quickly reduce small fat pockets on the face and body, with popular areas being under the chin and around the jaw. The injections work by dissolving fat cells, allowing them to be eliminated naturally by the body.

Minimal downtime

Unlike liposuction which can have up to a few weeks of recovery, fat dissolving injections are a walk-in walk-out appointment with minimal social downtime. It’s a minimally invasive alternative that involves a number of small injections of dissolving product into the target area. With side effects including mild swelling and discomfort, you can resume your normal activities within a few days.

Easy and fast

Each fat dissolving treatment only takes around one hour – so you can get back to your usual activities sooner. We usually recommend 2-4 treatments in total, and we’ll tailor a plan for you at your consultation. Final results are visible once the body has removed all dissolved fat cells – usually after 12 weeks. So if you’re looking to regain your confidence while targeting stubborn areas of fat, fat dissolving injections can bring your aesthetic goals to life.
