Non-Surgical Fat Removal

fat dissolving injections fat removal

When you think of fat removal, you’d be forgiven for thinking of invasive surgery; but there is an easier way. Non-surgical fat removal, also known as fat dissolving injections, is a non-invasive alternative to help remove those stubborn areas of fat. 

In practice, we call fat dissolving injections intralipotherapy. Both safe and effective, intralipotherapy is designed to target and reduce fat cells in any specific area. Non-surgical fat removal injections provide long-lasting results and ultimately help you get rid of those unwanted wobbly bits and restore self-confidence. 

Where is Non-Surgical Fat Removal Good for?

Whilst non-surgical fat removal is highly effective for contouring, these injections should not be misunderstood as a weight loss solution. They can be used in treating small, exercise-resistant pockets of fat on the body, the most common places are:

• Stomach 

• Thighs

• Upper arms

• Chin

• Buttocks

• Back

How do fat dissolving injections work?

Fat dissolving injections are made up of refined, plant-based compounds. An injectable substance known as Aqualyx, which comes from the deoxycholate family of acids is used to penetrate and dissolve the membranes within fat cells. 

When injected, the fat cell becomes unstable and is forced to break open. The fatty acids contained within that cell are then passed through the body and eliminated. 

Who are they suitable for?

Generally speaking, fat dissolving injections are suitable for anybody maintaining a healthy lifestyle, with small stubborn areas of fat. However, these injections may not be safe for somebody who is overweight, or obese and we would advise that a body sculpting procedure may be more suitable. 

Here at Ness Aesthetics, we will invite you in for a pre-consultation before your treatment to assess whether or not it is suitable for you. During this consultation, we may ask you questions about your overall lifestyle and medical background, as certain medical conditions may impact your suitability. Conditions include:

• Diabetes.

• Liver or kidney disease.

• Active skin problem in the area to be treated is present.

• On blood thinning medicine e.g warfarin.

If you are eligible for fat dissolving injections, we will invite you back into the clinic for treatment at a time that is convenient for you, treatment can take up to one hour and you may need more than one treatment to achieve your desired result. 

Do results show instantly?

You can expect to see the full results of fat dissolving injections around eight weeks after your first treatment. This is roughly how long your body’s natural draining process takes. Most people will need at least two treatments to get the results they want, but this also depends on your lifestyle, and any changes you make to complement the procedure.
