Fat Dissolving Treatment

Effective, non-surgical treatment to remove fullness under chin and stubborn pockets of fat.

Fat-dissolving injections, made of a synthesised deoxycholic acid (similar to that found in the digestive system), are injected into fatty areas, breaking down fat cells. The result is a slimming of the treated area, preventing destroyed fat cells from regenerating.

Noticeable improvements can be seen in three to four treatments, four to six weeks apart.

  • After Care

    • Immediately after treatment, ice or a cold compress can be applied to the area treated to reduce pain and swelling. Continue as required for the first 48 hours

    • Do not take anti-inflammatories such as aspirin, or Vitamin E, for 24 hours after treatment. Panadol can be taken for any pain or discomfort

    • Commence exercise and normal activities after 24 hours

    • Make sure you report any increasing pain, redness or signs of infection

    • Drink lots of water for the first 24 hours after treatment
