Fat Dissolving Injections

Cellulite Reduction/Removal

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, abdomen, thighs, knees, and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring but is not a treatment for weight loss.

​Made up from a few different plant-based compounds that have been refined in a lab environment. Fat dissolving injections dissolves 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.

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.

If you have significant weight 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.
