Do you have fullness under your chin? Do you have pockets or stubborn areas of fat?
Fat-dissolving injections are an effective, non-surgical way to create a more defined, aesthetically pleasing body by eliminating the fat cells that accumulate in problem areas. While diet and exercise can reduce fat in problem areas, fat-dissolving injections offer a non-invasive solution that targets a specific area and works to dissolve and destroy fat cells permanently.
A relatively new advancement available in Australia, our nurses are highly skilled and experienced in this procedure.

How do the Fat Dissolving Injections Work?
Our nurse administers a series of injections to the targeted area. This non-surgical process takes place during a short appointment and does not require any incisions.
The medication is a compound containing a synthesised deoxycholic acid and phosphatidylcholine, similar to that found in the digestive system. Phosphatidylcholine with deoxycholic acid (PC/DA) is widely used to reduce localised fat deposits with mild adverse effects. PC/DA works by breaking down fats in our digestive system, and when injected into fatty areas, it breaks down fat cells. The body then absorbs and expels the fat through the lymphatic system as a waste product. The result is a slimming of the treated area, and the destroyed fat cells will not regenerate.

Frequently Asked Questions about fat dissolving injections.
The juvaSlim treatment uses a fat dissolving medication to offer a non-invasive solution that targets a specific area and works to dissolve and destroy fat cells permanently.
Patients may experience some discomfort through the injection process; however, our nurses are highly skilled in this treatment and make it as painfree as possible. We can also use an anaesthetic to help reduce the discomfort of the procedure.
It is normal to experience pain, some redness and swelling after the treatment. This response is the body’s natural reaction to the broken-down fat cells and rejecting them, so they are expelled permanently. In most cases, any swelling or discomfort will subside after 1-2 weeks. Most people will return to work after a few days.
The number of fat-dissolving treatments required will vary from patient to patient. You should only need 3-4 treatments approximately six weeks apart to see lasting results in most cases.
Most patients will notice changes at around the 4-6 week mark. Once the fat stores have dissolved, the results are permanent.
Typical side effects of the medication include some pain, redness, swelling and discomfort after treatment. Rare serious side effects may also occur and include blood clotting, infection, nodules and skin sensitivities.
