Stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t budge can be disheartening and upsetting, but fat dissolving injections can help. So what are these? And why should you consider them for your cheeks and jaw? Well, here at the Skin and Welbeing Clinic, fat dissolving injections are one of our most popular aesthetic treatment options, and this is our guide to everything you need to know.
What are fat dissolving injections?
Fat dissolving injections are injections of Deoxycholic Acid Solutions directly into the fat tissue on the face and the body. This acid is a naturally occuring acid, produced within the human body by the liver. By using this acid at a higher concentration it can be used to target and destroy fat cells.
There are two different options available for fat dissolving injections. These are DesoFace fat dissolving injections and DesoBody fat dissolving injections. Each option is specifically formulated to target the specific fat cells in each area for the best results.
How do fat dissolving injections work?
The Deoxycholic Acid in the fat dissolving injections can target and destroy pockets of stubborn fat. The acid destroys the plasma membrane and outer wall of the fatty cell. This exposes the fatty acid inside, which can then be broken down and removed by the lymphatic system, and digested. The rest of the cell can then be broken down and removed as waste. Once a fat cell has been destroyed it will not come back, so with a good diet and exercise, you can maintain the results for life.
Why should you choose fat dissolving injections for cheeks and jaw?
Using fat dissolving injections for stubborn pockets of fat is a popular aesthetic treatment, with chin injections being one of the most common options. However, the cheek and jaw areas can also be targeted very effectively. There are a number of reasons why you should opt for fat dissolving injections in the cheeks and jaw, including:
- Transforming the facial profile
- Long lasting results
Cheek and jaw fat dissolving injections can transform the facial profile
The cheeks can be a key area for stubborn fat cells that remain even with exercise and diet. In addition, as part of the natural ageing process, the subunctuous fat pads under the cheek skin can move down the face, causing sagging skin around the jawline. Fat dissolving injections in both the cheek and jaw area can dramatically streamline the face and transform the facial profile. These injections can also be used alongside dermal fillers to reshape the face.
Cheek and jaw fat dissolving injections create long lasting results
Fat dissolving injections can have a long lasting impact on the facial structure because once fat cells have been destroyed they cannot grow back. This means that your results can be permanent, when paired with the right diet and exercise. However, it is important to note that other fat cells in the same area can grow larger over time, potentially negating the results.
