If you haven’t heard of it already, intralipotherapy is a popular and relatively new treatment that’s used to target those pesky pockets of fat that gather on your stomach, thighs, upper arms, buttocks and back – and even your face. 

The injection ‘dissolves’ and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge, no matter how much you exercise. 

Fat Dissolving injections have benefits not only appearance-wise, but also to your overall health physically, mentally, and even financially. Fat-dissolving injections can increase your confidence because they make you satisfied with how you look. Another benefit is that they are gentle and non-invasive.

FAQ'S (Frequently Asked Questions) 

How does the treatment work?

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance called sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area using a needle or cannula which, over time, destroys the fat cells in this area. These are then removed from the body by its very own lymphatic system – a network of tissues and organs that rid the body of unwanted toxins and waste. And just like that, the fat is gone!


Is this the treatment right for me?

If you suffer from low body confidence as a result of stubborn fat that’s near impossible to remove through exercise or weight loss, this treatment is the answer to your prayers.

However, it’s important to bear in mind that one thing fat dissolving injections are not is a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight, and are most effective on small pockets of fat stored on the hips, thighs, knees, ankles, upper arms, stomach and chin.


What results can you expect?

Sodium deoxycholate works its magic at a slow, leisurely pace – so the results won’t be instant. In fact, it usually takes several weeks for changes to become fully visible, which makes it all the more exciting when you start to notice the fat shrinking away.

And the best bit? The results are permanent (assuming you don’t gain weight), as once the unwanted fat has been processed through your lymphatic system, it’s gone.


How many sessions will you need?

For the best results, at Estee Beauty I recommend a course of at least 4-6 sessions, held six weeks apart. Of course, this is dependent on the amount of fat you want to remove, and the part of your body you’re targeting. For more information about recommended dosages, contact me at Estee Beauty Clinic.
