Fat dissolving injections are for ideal for areas where there are resistant pockets of fat that do not respond to dieting or other weight loss methods.
The solution that contains vitamin C and iron, uses the body’s metabolism by acting on the fat cells, causing natural fat cell destruction. The result is a reduction in those unwanted bulges and is most often used to reduce fat around the hips, tummy, upper thighs, love handles and saddle bags.
It works well as a stand-alone treatment for unwanted fat, but can be combined with the Slender Wonder program. This will give you have a winning combination for weight reduction and re-sculpting the body.
Are the results permanent?
The resultant fat melting is permanent (if you keep up a healthy lifestyle, and don't create the deposition of NEW fat), and the effect can be seen as early as 1 week after the injections.
How many sessions will I need?
Usually 1-3 sessions are needed for an area depending on the thickness of the fatty layer. Sessions are spaced 1-4 weeks apart, depending on various factors.
Is the treatment safe?
Yes. No synthetic chemicals are used in the solution, and a medical assessment before will make sure this is a safe procedure for you to have. A healthy lifestyle will promote removal of the dissolved fat is essential while having the treatment course.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Some swelling and bruising are to be expected for about 3-7 days after the injections. It's necessary to keep hydrated to help flush out the toxins and melted fat for a few days afterwards. Fat dissolving injections are NOT indicated for people who have a large amount of weight to lose, and have global weight loss to tackle. A weight loss program and exercise would be needed to trim down before fat dissolving injections would be indicated.
Who is the ideal candidate?
The fat dissolving injections are indicated for people with localised fatty areas they would like to disolve.
Like a muffin top, love handles, bra bulge or inner thigh.... and on the face, a pesky double chin or fatty jowls can also be decreased!
This is body sculpturing - dissolving small areas of what is often diet-resistant fat. The resultant effect is more defined and toned silhouette.
