Fat Dissolving Injections

Fat Dissolving Injections

How does it work?

A synthetic form of deoxycholic acid is injected into the fatty area under the chin. These injections cause a breakdown in the membrane of the fat cells leading to a permanent reduction in fat tissue, helping to improve neck and jawline countour.


How long does it last?

Treatment is considered permanent, however clients should expect to have a maintenance session every 4-5 years.


What areas can be treated?
  • Submental fullness (double chin)


How many treatments do I need?

A minimum of 2 treatments is generally required, but some people will require up to 5 treatments to achieve optimal results. Treatments can be performed 4-6 weeks apart.


Treatment Preparation:
  • Please avoid blood thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen and fish oil for one week before treatment to minimise bruising and bleeding.
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we will not be able to treat you with fat dissolving injections.
  • Please attend your appointment with a clean face./li>

  • Avoid exercising for at least 24 hours.
  • A review appointment will be scheduled approximately 4 weeks after date of treatment to assess your result.
