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.

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.

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.
