Where Can Fat-Dissolving Injections Be Used?

By Florence Goulbourne

Fat-dissolving injections have become increasingly popular in recent years and have emerged as a groundbreaking solution for individuals looking to contour different areas of their bodies without invasive, surgical procedures. Fat-dissolving injections have the ability to target stubborn pockets of fat that are often resistant to traditional exercise and diet methods. Fat-dissolving injections have become popular for being a non-surgical, safe and effective alternative when administered correctly. 

Here we will delve deeper into how and where fat-dissolving injections can be used  as a comprehensive guide for aesthetic practitioners. We will also take a look at the process, potential considerations and the benefits that fat-dissolving injections can provide.

Understanding Fat-Dissolving Injections

Fat-dissolving injections are a form of non-surgical treatment that can target stubborn areas of fat anywhere on the body. They are also often referred to as lipolytic injections or injectable lipolysis and work on stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to shift, even through healthy eating and exercise. Fat-dissolving injections target stubborn pockets of fat to reduce the number of fat cells to help you instantly achieve a more toned and contoured look. 

Fat Dissolvers usually contain active ingredients such as phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid which are well known for breaking down and eliminating fat cells in localised areas. 

Where Can Fat-Dissolving Injections Be Used?

While fat-dissolving injections can be used on various parts of the body, their use in certain areas has become more popular in recent years – making them a super versatile treatment. Areas include the abdomen, chin, thighs and arms. Here we will take a closer look at where fat-dissolving injections can be used and what results can be expected.

Submental Region

One of the most common areas where fat-dissolving injections are used is in the submental region. This is largely referred to as the area under the chin where fat dissolving injections can be used to target the double chin. The appearance of a ‘double chin’ can be a huge concern for many individuals and can even be seen as a perceived flaw. Therefore, by using fat-dissolving injections, you can effectively reduce submental fat or the double chin. Patients can achieve a more defined and sculpted jawline by targeting the fat cells in this area. To get the most effective results in this area, a series of injections are required to gradually break down the fat cells to result in a smoother and more contoured chin and neck area. 

This kind of treatment is often popular amongst older individuals concerned with ageing. As we age, our skin can lose elasticity which can lead to the appearance of a sagging jawline or jowls. This is another way that fat-dissolving injections can be used. The strategic injection of a fat-dissolving solution, such as those available online here at Fox Pharma, into the jowl area to gradually reduce fat. This can result in a more youthful and defined jawline. 

This minimally invasive treatment is a convenient alternative to surgical procedures such as a neck or facelift which makes it an appealing option for those who want the results without surgery. 

Love Handles and Flanks

For patients looking to slim down their love handles, fat-dissolving injections can also be used in this area. In many cases, these areas are resistant to traditional weight loss methods such as exercise, but can be targeted effectively through the use of this treatment. Injectable treatments, such as Aqualyx can be used to tackle regions such as these. They work as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction and are injected into a targeted area where fat cells are broken down to create improved body proportions and a more sculpted waistline.

The Abdomen

For many individuals, the goal of achieving a toned and flat abdomen is difficult to achieve naturally due to genetic predispositions or body changes post-pregnancy. Therefore the use of injectables, such as Aqualyx can target and eliminate fat cells in this area. This can help to achieve a flatter tummy and boost self-confidence and body image. However, it is important to understand and to convey to individuals who are interested in fat-dissolving injections that they aren’t intended as a weight loss method and instead can be used effectively to contour specific problem areas.

Things To Consider

It is crucial that as an aesthetic practitioner, you consider the below before agreeing to any use of fat dissolving-injections for a client or patient:

  • Assess patient suitability, expectations and medical history 
  • Understand the treatment area and patient’s anatomy. 
  • Convey risks and side effects. 

It is fair to say that fat-dissolving injections have transformed body contouring and offer individuals a non-surgical approach to addressing stubborn areas of fat. From getting rid of a double chin to reducing love handles, there are many different ways that these injections can be used to create a more streamlined appearance and boost confidence without the need for invasive surgery.
