Fat Dissolving Injections

We all have areas of stubborn fat that we struggle to get rid of. For some of us, no matter how much we diet or exercise, we simply can't rid of certain pockets of fat. Some fat deposits are actually genetic too.


If those fatty deposits knock your confidence on a daily basis, and you find yourself feeling self-conscious because of them, maybe it's time for a change?

Please allow between 3-6 month sessions for the best results.

Tips for fat dissolving

For the first 5 days:

  • Drink 3 litres of water

  • Wear a wrap/waist trainer

  • Avoid alcohol

  • Massage the treated area

  • Most importantly, it is vital to complete 3 sessions to witness the best results.


Lipolab is an injectable solution used to dissolve localised fat deposits in areas such as the hips, saddle bags, thigh, knees jowls and chin. The body then expels the released fatty deposits naturally in the lymphatic system.


The number of treatments required varies depending on the thickness of fat to be removed.


Typically 1-3 treatments for small areas (e.g. jowls) and 2-8 treatments for larger areas (e.g. thighs) at 10 day intervals.



Recovery instructions:

Drink plenty of fluids following treatment; aim for 2 litres a day minimum. After the treatment area may redden and swelling and bruising may be experienced. 

Lipolab works by causing an inflammatory reaction in the fat cells which can result in swelling that lasts 3-5 days. This swelling can be obvious when having facial treatments (e.g. chin).

Swelling can be reduced with the use of a cool pack wrapped in a clean cloth and used for a maximum of 20 mins. Do not use any anti-inflammatory tablets for 48 hours. Do not apply make-up or skincare to the treated area for 12 hours - then only used a clean brush or sponge for application until day five.



Avoid for:

1 days- Avoid alcohol/ non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication or aspirin

3 days- Extreme temperatures, swimming pools/ spas/ saunas.

10 days- Extreme physical exercise.

14 days- Laser, cryolipolysis or radio-frequency treatments.


Common side effects:

  • Red, tight and itchy skin

  • Swelling

  • Soreness

The treated area may feel tender and firm for up to 1 week after your treatment.

Adverse reaction awareness:

Pain and discharge is not normal. If you experience these please call the clinic immediately for advice.
