Say goodbye to your double chin! Fat-dissolving injections are a non-surgical treatment used for getting rid of small, stubborn deposits of fat that are difficult to shift with diet and exercise.
These painless injections work via a solution that is injected into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. The solution breaks down the fat cell membrane, the fat leaks out and is taken to the liver via the lymphatics where it is metabolised and then eliminated from the body. Once the fat cell has been destroyed, it is gone forever.
Fat-dissolving injections are made of a solution of liquid lecithin derived from soya beans. It has been used therapeutically for over 15 years. The treatment was first used in 1995 by Dr Rittes a Brazilian physician.
Any small area of fat on the body can be treated. But the following are commonly treated areas:
It is recommended to have at least 2 treatments spaced approx 1 month apart for maximum results. Individual results vary and more treatments may be needed.
