Firstly, to conclude whether fat dissolving injections work, we need to know what fat dissolving injections are? And why would people want them?
The main component of fat dissolving injections is deoxycholic acid (DC). When DC is injected into the subcutaneous layer of fat, it disrupts the fat cells and causes them to dissolve permanently. The contents of the fat cells are then released and eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
