..Fat Dissolving Injections
..for refined results

Fat distribution around our face is a result of our overall well being, our age, genetics and other factors. Double chins, sagging jowls and under eye fat bags can be an area of concern for many people.
Surgical options do not suit everyone, so fat dissolving injections can be an alternative treatment that is both safe and effective.

What is actually in the fat dissolving treatment vials?
The fat dissolving injections vials contain an acid which is found naturally in the body. This acid is similiar to the one released by the gallbladder that helps dissolve fatty foods when you eat them. The product is injected into the fat area and permanently destroys the fat cells by a process known as adipocytolysis. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again.

Commonly treated areas are:
• double chin
• heavy jowls
• heavy naso-labial folds
• under eye bags

How treatments will I need?
We recommend at least 2 treatments in order to see results. Some patients need up to 4 treatments to see full results. The number of treatments that you need depends largely on the amount of fullness that you have under the chin or other part of your face. These treatments are usually placed around 8 weeks apart.

Are fat dissolving injections painful?
A number of small injections using tiny needles are made into the fat area, and is very well tolerated by most patients. We have found that there is no need to use anaesthetic because of our technique. Afterwards we will apply an ice pack to the area, as it feels hot and tingly as the injection ingredients start to work. This will also limit some swelling.

What results will I see?
Around 68% of patients noticed at least a 1 grade or more improvement in the fullness of their double chin area and 16% of patients noticed a 2 grade or more improvement in double chin fullness.

Risks and potential side effects of fat-dissolving injections
The vast majority of side effects from treatment are mild and not permanent. The most common side effect we see after treatment are as follows:
Swelling around the area injected – We expect to see swelling. It means the treatment is working! In fact, we say please call us if it does not swell. We recommend not going back to work on the day of treatment and using ice on the neck intermittently in the hours after treatment.
Temporary numbness – Approximately 50% of patients will feel this slight numbness after treatment, with symptoms wearing off after 30 days on average.
Warmth and redness – 40% of patients will feel warmth or redness under the chin on the day of treatment.
Firmness – After swelling has resolved, the treated area may feel firm to touch for some patients, but this usually resolves after 1-2 months.
Smile changes – In around 1% of patients, the corner of the mouth can become inactive as the fat dissolving drug works. This is temporary, and usually resolves within 1-2 months, but can vary.
