Fat dissolving injections are a popular treatment option that can completely transform your face or body. But how long will these injections take to work, and how long will the results last?

What are fat dissolving injections?

Fat dissolving injections are a specific type of injection that can destroy and remove fat cells in specific areas. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we offer DesoFace and DesoBody which are created by industry leading manufacturers. The right type of product can be used to target stubborn pockets of fat around either face or body areas, and both the DesoFace and DesoBody are formulated slightly differently to better resolve fat cells in different body parts.

Fat dissolving injections are made from Deoxycholic Acid Solutions. This acid is naturally occuring, produced within the human body by the liver. By using this acid at a higher concentration it can be injected into specific areas and used to target and destroy fat cells. The fat cells will then be naturally released and drained away by your lymphatic system.

How long do fat dissolving injections take to work?

When you opt for fat dissolving injections you will have treatment every three to four weeks until the desired result has been achieved. During consultation a professional aesthetic practitioner, like us here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic can advise how many treatments will be necessary for your results. While you won’t see the results immediately, you can typically begin to see results after around 8 weeks. This is because the body needs time to drain and remove the fat cells from the body, and in general this can take around 8 weeks.

The number of treatments that you will need tends to depend on the results you wish to see and will also depend on other factors, such as the lifestyle changes you make to complement the procedure.

Fat dissolving injections are a good option for permanently removing unwanted fat cells in localised areas. This means that with a good diet and plenty of exercise the results can be permanent. However, while this treatment removes specific fat cells, which will then never return, this won’t prevent new fat cells from storing fat in a similar area, undoing the results of the injections. As a result, it’s essential that you maintain a healthy diet and exercise levels to achieve the right results.

Why should you choose an aesthetics professional for your fat dissolving injections?

There are a number of reasons why you should seek out a team of professionals for your fat dissolving injections. These include:

Professional results- choosing a professional team means that the fat dissolving injections will be perfectly measured and placed to achieve the right results for you. This is not something that can be achieved without extensive training and expertise.

Safety and health- fat dissolving injections are considered safe to use when administered by a professional. However this does not mean that there are no risks to the treatment and in fact a number of complications and issues can occur when these injections are not administered by someone who is trained and qualified. It’s essential for your health that you opt for a team you can trust.
