Fat Dissolving

Updated: May 26, 2023

What are Fat Dissolving Injections?​Injection lipolysis, also known as intralipotherapy, is a minimally invasive medical procedure for targeted fat reduction. Commonly referred to as fat dissolving injections, intralipotherapy is a form of mesotherapy and one of the nonsurgical fat reduction options​Fat Dissolving Injections are a safe, effective treatment that reduces fat cells in the treated area. It produces long lasting results, which means you can banish those annoyingly wobbly bits.These injections can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, underarm pouches, bra fat, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.​Made up from a number of different plant based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. The ingredients dissolve the membranes of fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells become unstable and break open. The fatty acids contained within the cell are then eliminated by macrophages (part of the body’s immune system) and the liver.​Are Fat Dissolving Injections suitable for me?​If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle and are close to your ideal body weight, but have isolated stubborn areas of fat then injectable dissolving might be suitable.  Popular areas that we treat are double chins, moobs, bra and underarm pouches, upper arms, saddle bags, inner thighs, 'cankles' and abdomen - including defining a six pack. We may also be able to sculpt the jowl area with Cincelar+. If you have significant weight in the target area, then fat dissolving is not suitable for you, but other body contouring treatments we offer maybe. If you have recently lost significant weight then the area concerning you may be loose skin which we can improve with skin tightening treatments.A consultation with our highly trained therapist will determine the correct treatment plan for you. Fat dissolving is not suitable if you:Have diabetes.Have liver or kidney disease.Have active skin problem in the area to be treated.Are taking blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin.​​​

Appproximately 2-5 sessions vs 3-8 sessions *depending on degree of fat cells to destroy.Aqualyx and Desobody/Desoface can be repeated in the same area after 8 weeks typically. Cincelar+ can be repeated after 4 weeks allowing you to reach your goals faster.Cincelar+ is the most costly, Aqualyx the cheapest. So why do we offer choice?It may be obvious from the descriptors that Cincelar+ is the stronger product - but Aqualyx and Desobody/face still have its place in the field - and it has its loyal fan base. We want to offer people flexibility and choice​. Most clients with financial restraints opt for Cincelar+ for the chin area - due to the benefits in speed and swelling. Whilst they often opt for a cheaper brand for the body where swelling is easier hidden. ​​

After Injection​Please pay attention to the following points until two weeks after the procedureAvoid high temperature stimulation such as: sauna, steam room, hot tub bath, hot packs, etc.Cleansing, makeup, and light showers are allowable on the day of the injection.Exercise and/or excessive sweating should be avoided and sport massage is not recommended.

Do not touch or press excessively on the treatment area.Drinking or excessive smoking is prohibited.A balanced and healthy diet is recommended to be used in conjunction with the treatment to ensure the best result.After treatment drink at least 0.5 litres of water and then continue drinking 2l of water every day for 1 week.
