Recently, At Inside Aesthetics a client had a complimentary consultation and expressed her concerns about fat dissolving injections sounding too good to be true? We are going to share with you exactly how we educated our client on the benefits, risks and results of fat dissolving injections, and provided her with lots of information and before and after pictures so she can make an informed decision.
Firstly, fat dissolving injections are a safe treatment that can help eliminate unwanted fat. The wobbly bits that will not go despite healthy eating and regular exercise. The injections are made from a plant compound solution that features deoxycholic acid, a bile acid that plays an essential role in fat digestion. When injected, the treatment destabilise your fat cells by destroying the fat cell membranes. This causes them to liquify, where they are removed by your lymphatic system.
How long do fat dissolving injections last?
To achieve optimum results from fat dissolving, multiple sessions could be required, depending on the surface area. Once the fat cells have been removed…it’s gone for good. It’s important to follow a healthy eating regime to maintain the results. If you are following a poor diet, the existing fat cells can still increase in size.
What are the risks of fat dissolving injections?
As with any cosmetic treatment, there are a few side effects to be aware of. The most common being swelling. Fat dissolving injections eliminate fat by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells, which will naturally result in redness, swelling or bruising. It’s completely normal for skin to stay swollen for 3-5 days after the injection, and may even feel tender for a few weeks after.
Do fat injections work on the stomach?
Yes. Fat dissolving injections are commonly used on the stomach, as fat is prominently stored around this area (especially in women). Fat dissolving injections can be used on the abdomen, arms, thighs and chin. It’s important for clients to have a consultation before having the treatment to ensure they would be a suitable candidate.
Do you lose weight after fat dissolving injections?
Fat dissolving injection is not a weight loss treatment. Fat dissolving injections just eliminate unwanted fat that is present. To ensure the best results are achieved a healthy diet and exercise should be maintained whilst having the treatment.
Do fat dissolving injections leave loose skin?
Fat dissolving injections are meant for stubborn small-medium pockets of fat that just will not shift despite a healthy diet and exercise. If a client had a large surface area of fat they wanted to target, focusing on weight loss first would be the best option. If a client had too much excess skin then surgery would achieve a better result. It is a must that clients should have a consultation with an aesthetics doctor to see what results can be achieved.
