Fat dissolving injections, sometimes known as injection lipolysis, is a treatment that breaks down adipocytes (fat cells) through the use of an injectable and is a non-surgical alternative to fat reduction. The main ingredient of these injections is a substance called deoxycholic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that helps digest fats. Kybella is currently the only form of fat dissolving injection that is approved by the FDA. It was originally meant for the reduction of submental fats or fats under the chin, also known as a double chin, but is now also used for other body parts.
One of the best things about fat dissolving injections, which is particularly beneficial for people who cannot afford to pause from work and daily activities, is that it does not have a downtime. Although it is normal to experience redness, swelling, and pain on the site of the treatment.
There is also a possibility that the treated area may feel hard, but it is nothing to worry about since it will soften over time. It takes around 6 to 8 weeks to see the results since the swelling and bruising subsides during this duration.
