Frequency asked questions

Fat dissolving injections are medicines and are often composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance produced by our liver. Its role in the body is exactly what we are achieving with the treatment, to dissolve fat. Fat dissolving injections work by breaking down the membrane of fat cells, which then get absorbed by the body and progressively eliminated by the kidneys. It is hard for fat cells to be replaced, so the number of fat cells decreases permanently.
