Home Laser & Skincare Treatments Fat Melting Injections

People willing to set off on a path to shed extra pounds usually believe that all they need is diet and exercise. But is that enough to achieve a well-contoured body appearance that aligns with your beauty aims? The answer is sadly a NO for most individuals.

After all the hard work with your diet and fitness regimen, you may still have stubborn subcutaneous fat deposits that do not seem to go away.

One of the options to remove these fat deposits is liposuction, which involves getting a knife under the skin. But most people are not willing to go for a surgical option. They can benefit from another cosmetic procedure called fat-melting injections, also known as fat dissolving injections.

What are Fat Melting Injections?

As the name suggests, fat melting injections are administered under the skin where subcutaneous fat is present. These injections contain deoxycholic acid, which helps decompose body fat.

This safe and effective treatment typically triggers a natural response called lipolysis, which hydrolyzes triglycerides into glycerol and three fatty acids. The body’s lymphatic system does the rest by absorbing the decomposed fat, which is then processed out of the body or used as an energy source. This allows the injection recipient to achieve a well-contoured body appearance.

Ideal Candidate for Fat Melting Injections

An ideal candidate for fat melting injections is someone who wants to get rid of localized body fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise. More specifically, this treatment is ideal for individuals who are not interested in surgical liposuction but have excess adipose fat to remove.

Fat Melting Injection Technique

The procedure of administering fat melting injections is quite efficient and straightforward.

  • First, local anesthesia is applied to specific areas with fat bulges.
  • Then, the surgeon administers multiple deoxycholic acid-based injections under the skin into the subcutaneous fat layer.
  • The duration of the procedure depends on the treatment area. For example, administering fat melting injections into submental fat usually takes 15-20 minutes. The treatment procedure will be longer for larger treatment areas such as the back, stomach, thighs, and hips.

Multiple sessions are needed to achieve the desired results. Generally, fat melting injections are administered every 6-8 weeks. The number of treatment sessions depends on the amount of fat to be removed and the treatment site.

Fat Melting Injection Types

Different types of fat melting injections are available on the market. Your doctor will pick the injection type that fits your fat reduction needs. The two most common types of fat melting injection used in Dubai are:

  • Aqualyx™ Fat Dissolving Injections
  • Adipose Lipolysis Injections

Let’s explain both these types briefly down below.

Aqualyx™ Fat Dissolving Injections

Aqualyx™ Fat Dissolving solution is an incredible treatment to reduce localized fat deposits under the skin. These injections break up stubborn fat deposits that are hard to get rid of with exercise and diet. 

Aqualyx™ Fat Dissolving Injections mainly help reduce subcutaneous fat in the stomach, back, chin, hips, buttocks, thighs, and knees. These fat dissolving Injections can also help treat pseudo-gynaecomastia, a fatty tissue formation around nipples in men. This fat formation contributes to a breast-like appearance.

Adipose Lipolysis Injections

Adipose lipolysis injections, or simply lipolysis injections, aim to reduce fat deposits around the injection site. This traditional fat reduction injection treatment uses deoxycholic acid to decompose fat deposits in the treatment region. The FDA approves these injections for double chin removal. Other areas where you can reduce fat deposits using these injections include facial and jawline areas, abdomen, upper arms, back, thighs, knees, flanks, and calves.

What to expect after fat dissolving injections?

Fat dissolving injections are a safe treatment that doesn’t interfere with your routine activities. A few minor side effects may occur after the treatment, but they are not usually a cause of concern. Here is what you can expect after receiving these injections.

  • Bruising, swelling, redness, and itchiness in the treatment area
  • Numbness that may persist for a few weeks or months
  • A tenderness that may remain for a few weeks

All these side effects generally subside without any medical intervention. The pain in the injection sites is usually insignificant but may persist for a few weeks. You can take over-the-counter pain medications to reduce this discomfort.

Fat Melting Injections Benefits

Fat melting injections come with every benefit you want from a non-surgical procedure for reducing fat and enhancing contours. The advantages of these injections are as follows.

  • A quick way to reduce fat deposits: Do you want to target areas with excess fat under the skin? Fat melting injections are a surefire way to dissolve these fat pockets. You may need 2-4 treatment sessions spaced out at 6-8 weeks to get the best possible results.
  • Hassle-free: Fat dissolving injections are a non-surgical treatment, meaning that they won’t result in a downtime of surgical fat-reducing treatments. These injections induce minimal pain, swelling, and itchiness. These complications are too trivial to affect your routine.
  • Permanent results: Last but not least, fat melting injections deliver permanent results. The destroyed fat cells leave your body through lymphatic pathways and never grow back.

Fat Melting Injections FAQs

How long do fat reduction injections last?

The results of fat dissolving injections last a lifetime. The fat cells do not reoccur in the treated areas. However, body areas that are not treated with these injections will develop massive fat deposits if you fail to adhere to healthy lifestyle requirements after receiving these injections.

Does a fat dissolving injection hurt?

The overall pain or discomfort associated with fat reduction injections is minimal. You may experience a stinging sensation in the treated region for a few minutes. The post-treatment discomfort is also quite manageable without medication.

How long do fat dissolving injections take to work?

Fat melting injections usually take six weeks to come into effect. This duration is equivalent to the gap between every two fat dissolving injection sessions.

Do fat dissolving injections tighten skin?

Fat dissolving injections are primarily designed to reduce subcutaneous fat deposits. This treatment induces little to no skin contraction. Therefore, it is improbable that the skin will tighten after these injections.
