I Want to Get Rid of My Double Chin, But I don’t want Surgery.

So, you want to get rid of that double chin, but don’t want to go under the knife. Then look no further, we now offer Fat dissolving injections. That blast the fat away to give you a perfectly sculpted jaw-line.

Fat dissolving, also known as Lipolysis treatment, refers to the reduction of localised fat deposits via subcutaneous injections of an active ingredient solution, which causes the permanent destruction of adipocytes (fat cells).

How does it Work?

After the lipolytic solution is injected, the adipocyte cell membrane (fat cell) is destroyed.

The body will then respond with a cascade of inflammatory necrosis of cell, which will be eliminated in the lymph nodes.

The inflammation process also causes fibroblast migration and stimulation, resulting in the build-up of more collagen and potential local skin reaction.fat dissolving injections | baulkham hills nsw | martina lavery dental and skin studio

Emulsification is the next stage. This is where the fat detergent effect of active ingredients; the dismantling of the fat by enzyme cascade, is then transported to the liver.

Your metabolism via beta oxidation in your kerb cycle turns it to CO2 and water; which is excreted in urine and through your lungs.

This whole process occurs with the cell wall lysis, in the first 24 hours. And the rest taking place over the next 8-10 weeks.

Is it Safe?

Fat-dissolving injections contain deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body. It is generally a compound mix of phosphatidylcholine and sodium deoxycholate. These products are TGA approved and registered, meaning they are completely safe to be used by a licensed practitioner.

As with any skin piercing there are some low-grade risks like bruising, but all of these will be discussed with you at your consulting appointment beforehand.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

We always recommend a consultation first with Dr. Martina, as this will give you the best indication of how many appointments you would need to reduce all the Fat in the area you are concerned with. Generally, 3-4 treatments are needed with 8-10 weeks in between each treatment.

Does it work on other areas?

YES! Fat dissolving injections not only work on your double chin, but they work in other small areas like the cheeks, jowls, and under eye fat bags.

Are Fat Dissolving Injections Permanent?

YES! The good news is after your treatment, those fat cells are destroyed for good. However, if there are remaining fat cells, they can grow larger. Or if you were to start gaining weight, new fat cells can be deposited in that same area.

Here at the studio, Dr. Martina can recommend you ways to get your diet back on track to not only keep your skin healthy, but your teeth as well.  

What Does It Cost?

We always recommend having a consultation first, as Dr. Martina can then evaluate the best way to address your concerns, and address a package that suited to your needs. Dr. Martina recommends following a healthy life and lifestyle to maintain a healthy weight (BMI). Additionally, we offer carboxytherapy and do chin and jawline fillers for a more sculpted jaw profile.
