Fat Dissolving Injections Geelong
We’re excited to introduce a new treatment to the Cosmetic Refinement Clinic. Fat Dissolving Injections are used to reduce the fat deposits below the chin, where a double chin occurs, giving the patient a more pronounced and contoured jawline.
The treatment works by an acid called deoxycholic acid being injected into the treatment area. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring acid in the body that works to break down dietary fat. The injected acid then breaks down and dissolves the fat cells in the treatment area. Because the fat cell has been totally destroyed this form of treatment has long-term results.
How many Fat Dissolving Treatments are required?
This varies dependent on the patient and the amount of fat that needs to be dissolved.
At CRC we use fat dissolving injections in conjunction with our ulthera treatments. This combination provides the best results for our patients and means they only need to have only one session of both fat dissolving injections and ulthera treatment.
For patients who just want the injections, a typical patient should begin to see results after 2-4 treatments. However, up to 6 treatments may be required. These treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
At an initial consultation, Dr. Niamh Corduff will assess your situation and design a treatment plan, in consultation with you, which is suited to your anatomy and circumstances, to achieve the desired result.
How long do Fat Dissolving Injections last?
After the prescribed number of treatments have been performed by Dr. Niamh Corduff, and the desired results have been achieved, patients can expect the results to last for at least 4 years.
