Permanently remove unwanted fat

This pioneering treatment permanently removes unwanted, difficult to shift fat from localised problem areas around the body.


During a fat dissolving injections treatment, 'Adipocytes' or fat cells are broken down with the use of sodium deoxycholate solution. This causes a localised inflammatory response from the body. The inflammatory response is vital and allows the destroyed fat cells to be removed and excreted via the body's excretory system.


Once the fat cells have been destroyed by the solution the effect is permanent.

Frequently asked questions

Are there any side effects?

The side effects of this treatment are minimal and self resolving. As mentioned before, the body's inflammatory process is key to the success of this treatment. So, minor swelling is to be expected. Swelling normally subsides after 48 hours and a ice pack is recommended to help it settle. 


Up to 50% of patients experience some level of numbness in the location of the injections; this resolves itself but can last up to 30 days. 


Most patients experience a warmth and reddening to the treatment area. This usually passes in 24 hours. 


Around 30% of patients report a hardening of the treatment area, lasting up to two months. 

Where are fat dissolving injections most effective?

Fat dissolving injections can target any area of concern, but have been known to dramatically improve unwanted fat beneath the chin, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, love handles, back hump, back fat and upper arms. 

How quickly will I see results from fat dissolving injections?

This treatment does require some patience -  most clients notice a visible difference within six weeks with subsequent treatments further improving the overall result. 

For best results, most patients require three or four treatments, usually two-four weeks apart.
