You should be aware that particular fatty tissues are challenging to lose since they are physiologically programmed to remain in place and do not react to diet or workout, no matter what it takes.

Fortunately, a non-surgical procedure called fat dissolving injections is available to help you create a more contoured appearance by permanently eliminating fat cells from your face and body.

What is the composition of fat dissolving injections?

Fat-dissolving injections are pharmaceuticals, and they are frequently constituted of a synthetic type of deoxycholic acid, a natural chemical generated by the liver. Its function in the body is precisely what we are attempting to achieve with the said treatment: fat dissolution.

The Fat Dissolving Injection Procedure?

When fat dissolving injections are administered, they function by breaking down the membranes of fat cells, which are subsequently absorbed into the body and gradually removed by the kidneys. In addition, because fat cells are difficult to replenish, the overall number of fat cells decreases with time. It is especially effective for eliminating fat deposits in certain areas of the body.

Fat-dissolving injections are a rapid non-surgical procedure and require little recovery time. The entire process takes around 30 minutes, depending on the region and the number of body areas to be addressed.

The aesthetic practitioner will perform a physical exam to determine whether you are a good candidate for the fat dissolving injections to decide whether or not you are healthy enough. It is necessary to carefully cleanse and label the injection sites to ensure that the fat dissolving injection is adequately provided.

Following that, a series of injections are made into the desired location. It is possible that the treatment region may grow heated and red and that you will feel a tingling feeling. A soothing cream can be used 20 minutes before the injection is carried out to minimize any pain during the process.

The technique is completed by applying a gentle massage to the treated region for approximately 5 minutes to improve the dispersion of the medication.

What are the locations that will be treated with fat-dissolving injections?

A popular cosmetic procedure uses fat dissolving injections to eliminate the fat cells under the chin that generate a face disorder called “submental fullness,” commonly known as a double chin. Some of the other standard treatment areas involve, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Upper back areas to eliminate bra bulges
  • Upper arms to remove the wing-like protrusions
  • Love handles on the hips
  • Jelly bellies on the Abdomen
  • Chubby Upper Knees

Are fat-dissolving injections considered to be safe?

No medical operation is entirely risk-free, whether it is an extensive surgery or a simple shot. Many people look to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for assurances of safety, and in this case, fat dissolving injections receive a mixed rating from the agency. 

Fat-melting injections are generally associated with a low rate of bad results or adverse effects when properly administered to the appropriate patients. Some individuals with whom fat dissolving injectables aren’t a good idea. You should avoid getting fat-dissolving injections if you have any of the following conditions:

  • You are susceptible to infections or suffer from skin conditions.
  • You suffer from a fat-processing disorder.
  • If you are expecting a child or if you are breastfeeding
  • You are suffering from lipodystrophy

There are several factors to consider when deciding whether or not injectables are the best option for you. Long-term results are not possible for some clients because they lack the necessary skin elasticity or their weight varies too frequently.

Indeed, age plays a role, and these treatments are generally not suggested for adults over 60. Skin elasticity is often lacking in elderly adults, and attempting to remove fat from the face can keep the skin all around the face stretchy. Similarly, receiving fat-reducing injections may not be the best option if you still have difficulties with excess weight.

Fat-dissolving injections have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to destroy fat cells underneath the chin. While it is not recommended to treat obesity, it is used to successfully reduce fat cells in some regions of the body when the medication is injected correctly at the appropriate dose, in a clean environment, and by qualified injectors.

In addition to soreness, pain or swelling, and numbing, fat dissolving injections can cause temporary side effects such as tingling, burning, and prickling. These usually resolve within 1-3 weeks and are to be anticipated. Before the treatment is given, a qualified skincare injector will go over the advantages and risks with you.

Aftercare for a fat-dissolving injection

It is possible that you could have swelling and discoloration at the injection site and itching, soreness, and hypersensitivity to pressure after the therapy. Avoid rubbing or scratching the area surrounding the treatment area for at least 4 hours and make sure it stays dry. This is typical and will usually go away within 1-2 weeks. You are free to return to your regular activities straight away.

It is not recommended to consume alcoholic beverages or engage in excessive activity because this may result in extra bruising. Avoid prolonged exposure to high temperatures that might damage the treated surfaces.

When will you be able to notice the outcomes of the treatment?

Visible benefits can be observed anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks following therapy, differently from person to person and in the treated regions. Based on the scale of the area and the density of the fat, you may require anywhere from one to four or more sessions to obtain the desired results. The therapy benefits are long-lasting if the patient follows a balanced diet and maintains a stable weight.

The cosmetics injector will work very closely with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique requirements.
