Introduction to Fat Dissolving Injections:

Injection lipolysis, also known as intralipotherapy, is a minimally invasive medical procedure designed for targeted fat reduction. Referred to commonly as fat dissolving injections, intralipotherapy falls under the umbrella of mesotherapy, offering a nonsurgical approach to fat reduction.

Key Benefits:

Fat Dissolving Injections are recognized as safe and effective treatments for reducing fat cells in specific areas. Providing enduring results, they offer a solution to stubborn fat deposits, facilitating the achievement of a more contoured physique.

Treatment Areas:

These injections are versatile, suitable for addressing small, exercise-resistant pockets of fat across various body regions such as the chin, chest, underarm pouches, bra fat, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, knees, and ankles. While effective for body contouring, it’s important to note that they are not intended for weight loss purposes.

Mechanism of Action:

Composed of refined plant-based compounds, the ingredients within Fat Dissolving Injections target fat cell membranes in the treated area. By destabilizing these cells, they induce their rupture, releasing fatty acids subsequently eliminated by the body’s immune system and liver.

Suitability and Considerations:

Fat Dissolving Injections may be suitable for individuals leading healthy lifestyles, close to their ideal body weight, yet struggling with localized fat deposits. Commonly treated areas include double chins, bra and underarm pouches, upper arms, thighs, and abdomen. However, individuals with significant weight in the target area are advised against this treatment, as it is not intended for weight reduction purposes.

Consultation and Precautions:

Prior to undergoing treatment, a consultation with a qualified therapist is necessary to determine the suitability of Fat Dissolving Injections. Individuals with diabetes, liver or kidney disease, active skin problems in the treatment area, or those taking blood-thinning medication (e.g., warfarin) are not suitable candidates for this procedure.

In conclusion, Fat Dissolving Injections offer a promising solution for individuals seeking targeted fat reduction, provided they meet the necessary health criteria and expectations outlined by a qualified healthcare provider.


Deoxycholic acid, a primary component of Cincelar Plus, occurs naturally in the human body and aids in fat emulsification for intestinal absorption. It is predominantly synthesized in the liver and boasts remarkable efficacy in fat removal.

This US FDA-approved fat dissolving material is a derivative of human bile acid, generated as a metabolic by-product of intestinal bacteria. Deoxycholic acid facilitates the emulsification of fats for absorption in the intestine.

Both Aqualyx and Desobody also harness the power of Deoxycholic Acid.

The number of treatments needed for optimal results with fat dissolving injections can vary depending on individual factors such as the amount of fat in the treatment area and the desired outcome. Typically, a series of 2 to 4 sessions is recommended to achieve the most noticeable and significant results.

For areas such as a double chin, treatments are typically spaced out at least 4 weeks apart to allow for proper healing and to assess the progress between sessions.

However, it’s essential to remember that the number of treatments required may differ for each person, and your healthcare provider will customize a treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals. Additionally, factors such as lifestyle habits and overall health can also influence the number of treatments needed to achieve the desired outcome.

During your initial consultation, your healthcare provider will evaluate your individual situation and provide personalized recommendations regarding the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired results. They will also discuss any potential risks and address any questions or concerns you may have about the treatment process.

The timeline for seeing results from fat dissolving injections can vary from person to person and depends on several factors, including the individual’s metabolism, the area treated, and the specific formulation of the injection. In general, noticeable results typically begin to appear within a few weeks to a couple of months after the initial treatment.

Initially, there may be some swelling and inflammation in the treated area, which can obscure the results. As the swelling subsides and the fat cells gradually break down and are eliminated by the body’s natural processes, the treated area will start to appear more contoured and toned.

Most individuals will see significant improvement within 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment, with continued progress over the following months. However, full results may take several months to become apparent as the body continues to metabolize the treated fat cells.

It’s important to note that fat dissolving injections are not a quick fix for weight loss but rather a gradual process of targeted fat reduction. Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can help optimize and prolong the results of the treatment.

Post-Injection Care Instructions:

Following the injection procedure, it’s crucial to adhere to the following guidelines for optimal recovery and results during the two weeks post-treatment:

1. Avoid High Temperature Stimulation: Steer clear of activities that involve high heat exposure, such as sauna sessions, steam rooms, hot tub baths, and the application of hot packs. These can potentially interfere with the healing process.

2. Day of Injection: On the day of the injection, you may engage in cleansing, apply makeup, and take light showers as usual.

3. Limit Exercise and Sweating: Refrain from rigorous exercise and activities that induce excessive sweating. Additionally, it’s advisable to avoid sports massages during this period to prevent any disruption to the treated area.

4. Be Gentle with Treatment Area: Resist the urge to touch or exert excessive pressure on the treated area, as this may hinder the healing process and affect the outcome of the procedure.

5. Avoid Drinking and Smoking: Drinking alcohol excessively and smoking should be avoided post-treatment, as they can impede the body’s natural healing process and may affect the efficacy of the injections.

6. Maintain a Balanced Diet: Opt for a balanced and healthy diet to complement the treatment and achieve the best possible results. Nutrient-rich foods can support the body’s healing process and promote overall well-being.

7. Hydration: After the treatment, consume at least 0.5 litres of water, followed by a daily intake of 2 litres of water for the subsequent week. Proper hydration aids in flushing out toxins from the body and supports the healing process.

By following these post-injection care instructions diligently, you can enhance the effectiveness of the treatment and promote a smooth recovery process. If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us for further guidance.
