Fat Dissolving Injections

Fat dissolving injections have been available in Australia for many years and are a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction treatments. Our fat dissolving treatment targets stubborn fat deposits on the jaw, chin, and neck as well as the abdomen, back and arms. ​

The fat dissolving injections are made of a synthetic form of a naturally found compound in the body. This compound works to break down fats in our digestive system and when injected into fatty areas, it breaks down fat cells. The body then expels fat through the lymphatic system, subsequently resulting in slimming of the targeted area, and the destroyed fat cells will not regenerate.  

Most patients who undergo the fat dissolving injection at Home Beauty Lab see visible improvements 4-6 weeks after one treatment. However, it takes up to 8 weeks to see maximum results. Depending on the individual and the amount of fat to be dissolved, it is recommended for most patients to undergo 2-3 sessions, approximately 6-8 weeks apart. After your initial consultation with one of our nurse injectors, you will be provided with an accurate indication of how many injections are recommended.

Treatment & after care

Treatment with fat dissolving injections require minimal to no downtime, allowing most patients to resume their normal activities almost straight away. Short term side effects like swelling, redness, pain, numbness and bruising can last up to a week. These side effects are completely normal and will subside as you recover.

The practitioner will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to ensure you achieve the best possible results. Generally, patients may be instructed to:

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and excessive heat exposure for 24 hours
  • Avoid hair removal or skin treatment on the treatment area for 2 weeks
  • Avoid touching the treatment area for 24 hours
  • Follow a healthy diet and stay hydrated
  • Gently apply ice pack to the treatment area for 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off, for 24 hours. This will help reduce swelling and inflammation
