Fat Dissolving

We’re extremely proud of our safe, effective fat-dissolving injections here at Azimzadeh Aesthetics. Using industry-recommended products, we’re able to banish those stubborn areas of fat with long-lasting results that leave you feeling more confident and comfortable. 

The treatment is used to target the chin, chest, abdomen and thighs, and is particularly beneficial for body contouring and skin tightening. But this isn’t a quick fix for weight loss; rather it is for those small, particularly exercise-resistant areas to achieve targeted results. Book a free consultation at our London clinic.

What are fat-dissolving injections?

Fat-dissolving injections are designed to target small stubborn areas of fat in the face and body. Our trained practitioners will administer small injections that emulsify fats and dissolve the membranes of fat cells.  

Made from plant-based compounds, including an active compound that naturally occurs in the human body, the injections work by making the fat cells unstable, allowing them to break down and clear through the body’s immune system.

What’s involved in the treatment?

A cannula is inserted allowing the products to disperse throughout the targeted area and to minimise bruising, discomfort and swelling. 

Post-treatment, you will be to return to your usual, daily activities, but exercise should be avoided for at least seven days. You will experience swelling in the treated area and it may feel some discomfort and tenderness for up to two weeks.

The results

Fat-dissolving injections are a safe and effective way to target stubborn areas with long-lasting results. The fatty cells will continue to break down over a month post-procedure, encouraging skin tightening in the treated area and leaving a more contoured and toned look. The final results can take 4 – 12 weeks to achieve.

Both treatments are suitable for those looking to combat stubborn areas of fat, but neither should be considered as a weight loss solution. Fat-dissolving injections enable clients to target a desired area while creating body sculpting and contouring, whereas liposuction is a more invasive, surgical procedure with significant recovery time. Sometimes on is a better option than the other, which is why a consultation is key. We give honest, medically advised opinions to all our patients.
