Fat Dissolving Injections
Fat dissolving injections remove small pockets of stubborn fat from the body without the need for surgery. They involve the injection of a synthetic bile salt solution, which selectively kills the unwanted fat cells being targeted.
These injections are best suited for the removal of specific pockets of stubborn fat from areas including the chin and jawline, bra bulges, knees and calves.
