Fat dissolving injections aim to destroy fat cells by damaging the fat cells plasma membrane, allowing the fatty acids inside the cell to be broken down and be naturally removed by the lymphatic system. In simple terms they liquify fat and allow the body to remove it naturally. The fat dissolving product is injected directly into the subcutaneous fat with either a needle or cannula.

It is important to use fat dissolving injections in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular physical exercise. Fat dissolving injections are not a substitute for lifestyle measures however they are useful at helping to remove stubborn localised fatty deposits that have been difficult to lose with diet and exercise measures alone.
