Fat Dissolving Injections

An injectable product made of chemicals that dissolve fat, so it can be used to spot-reduce fat all over the face and body, but is most popular for reducing the appearance of fatty jowls and double chins. The injections are quick but the results take a few weeks to show.

How long do fat dissolving injections take to work:

Ten minutes for the injections; four weeks to see full results.

Pain level:

The injections don’t hurt much, but afterwards, the injected areas sting and swell considerably, and this swelling may take weeks to subside.

Anaesthetic:

None

Sculpted reduction of fat in the injected area

After treatment/down time:

Considerable swelling in the injected area, which will be painful and itch; the swelling and the itching may persist for several weeks.

Things to bear in mind:

As well as fat, deoxycholate, the active ingredient in Aqualyx, dissolves anything else in its path, so it needs to be injected with great care and precision by a practitioner with plenty of experience.
