They can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.
The treatment works by causing the fat cells to rupture, releasing the contents into the surrounding tissues for the bodies drainage system to remove from the body. The treatment is considered to be a non surgical alternative to liposuction
What areas can be treated?
- Double chin
- Pre jowl sulcus

Is the treatment invasive?
This treatment is safe and effective. Local anesthetic is used to minimise any discomfort. With any injection treatment side effects can occur, which will be discussed at consultation. Immediately after treatment you may appear red and swollen with some bruising on the treated area. The injections work by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling for 1-5 days. The treated area may feel tender and firm for up to 8 weeks post treatment.
