Fat Dissolving

What are fat-dissolving treatments?

Fat-dissolving treatments, also known as non-surgical fat reduction treatments, are cosmetic procedures that use injectable substances to dissolve and remove localised fat deposits in areas such as the chin, neck, upper arms, abdomen, and thighs. In the UK, the two most commonly used injectable substances are deoxycholic acid and phosphatidylcholine.

Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When used in cosmetic treatments, it is injected into the fat tissue to break down and dissolve the fat cells. Phosphatidylcholine, on the other hand, is a naturally occurring substance derived from soybeans and is used to dissolve fat in a process known as lipolysis.

Non-Invasive Treatments: What You Need to Know Before Undergoing Injections.

These treatments are considered non-invasive as they do not require surgery or incisions. However, they still need injections, so it is essential to thoroughly research the practitioner and the procedure before undergoing treatment. As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, such as swelling, bruising, pain, and rare but serious adverse reactions.

Fat-Dissolving Treatments: Understanding the Purpose and Risks.

It is important to note that fat-dissolving treatments are not a weight loss solution and are intended for the reduction of localized pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is important to have realistic expectations and to discuss your goals and any concerns with a qualified aesthetics practitioner before undergoing treatment.
