Fat Dissolving Injections

Fat dissolving injections are a popular and way to eliminate stubborn fat in localised areas.

What to expect

Before any injectable appointment, patients must present to one of the doctors at Advantage Skin Clinic to obtain a script. An injectable script is valid for up to 6 months. During your initial consultation with our experienced cosmetic nurse, a personalised treatment plan will be created to meet your individual needs. The treatment involves injecting a solution containing deoxycholic acid into the targeted area, which causes the fat cells to break down and be eliminated by the body’s natural processes.


The procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes. For optimal results, we recommend a series of 2-3 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. It may take 6-12 weeks to see the full effects of the treatment.


Some mild swelling, bruising, and redness may occur at the injection site as well as a firm feeling in the injection site for up to 4 weeks.


The cost of fat-dissolving injections varies depending on the area being treated and the number of injections required. Our cosmetic nurse will provide a detailed treatment plan and a customised quote during your consultation.


When will I see the results?

Depending on the individual and the areas treated, visible results can be seen from 4-6 weeks after treatment.

How long do the results last?

The results of fat-dissolving injections are permanent as the treated fat cells are permanently eliminated from the body.

What is the pre and post-treatment care?

Immediately after the treatment you may experience swelling, bruising, itching, pain, sensitivity to pressure and warmth at the injection site. This is normal and generally disappears within 1-2 weeks. Avoid scratching/picking around the treated area and keep the area dry for at least 4 hours. You can continue your usual daily activities after treatment however it is best to avoid strenuous exercise for 2 days post-treatment. For 14 days after treatment avoid extreme temperatures such as saunas and hot baths which can affect the treated areas.
