The fat cells that caused your double chins, love handles, and other problem areas will permanently dissolve with injection lipolysis. A healthy lifestyle can help avoid the creation of new fat deposits. Your doctor can also recommend ways for you to maintain your new appearance, but otherwise, you won’t have to worry about the fat coming back. When all fat cells have melted away and expelled by the body, they are gone for good.
If the problem areas have minimal fat deposit, melting all of it can be done in just one session. For multiple injection sessions, they are spaced at least a few weeks apart to account for other health factors. Results can be seen as early as a week after the first session, while the full effect can be noticed 2-3 months after treatment.
Fat dissolving injections are FDA-approved, which means that they have been thoroughly tested and are deemed safe for use. Apart from some swelling and bruising after the procedure, there are no dangerous side effects from using fat dissolving injections.
If you are scared of pain but still want to try fat dissolving injections, this is good news for you. Fat injections can sting for a few second since it involves needles, but is quite tolerable even without topical numbing ointments. You can, however, ask for topical anesthesia to help with any discomfort.
