Fat Dissolving Injections
Fat dissolving injections are an increasingly popular non-invasive fat reduction procedure. These injections are designed to reduce fat pockets in areas like the abdomen, waist, and thighs.
Fat dissolving injections are made of a compound called deoxycholate, which is a bile acid. This compound breaks down fat cells, allowing them to be eliminated via the lymphatic system. The injections are administered directly into the fat deposits.
The injections are typically given in a series of three to five sessions, spaced out over a period of weeks or months. After each injection session, the body begins to naturally flush out the broken down fat cells.
The results of fat dissolving injections depend on the individual and the area being treated. Typically, patients see a decrease in fat deposits and an improvement in body contouring. The best results are typically seen after the full course of injections has been administered.
Fat dissolving injections have minimal side effects and are considered a safe procedure. Possible side effects may include bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. Patients may also experience some temporary discomfort during the procedure.
