Fat Dissolving Injections at our Clinic in Hazlemere, High Wycombe
At Javaani we use the new generation of fat-dissolving injections designed to treat difficult localised pockets of fat. Areas that can be treated include a ‘double’ chin, the arms, abdomen, “love handles”, buttocks, knees, thighs and back or “bra rolls”. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve the desired result depending on the area treated and the amount of fat involved.
The active ingredient in the injections is Deoxycholic Acid, which acts on the cell membrane and causes the breaking down of the fat cells. This releases microdroplets of fatty liquid which are cleared by the body’s drainage system and eventually eliminated from the body.

Fat Dissolving Injections FAQS
Are there any Side Effects & Complications?
Common side effects include redness, burning sensation, soreness and swelling at the site of treatment. These symptoms last from a few hours to a few days and do not require any specific treatment. Serious risks of fat dissolving treatment are extremely rare, and these include allergic reaction, pigmentation, tissue necrosis (very rare) and temporary nodules.
Fat Dissolving Injection Contraindictions?
- Acute/untreated hormonal disorders (e.g., untreated Thyroid disease)
- Advanced organ disease (e.g., renal/hepatic failure),
- Severe autoimmune disease
- Active infection
What is the aftercare?
Following fat dissolving injections, we would advise that you:
- Use paracetamol for pain or discomfort.
- Avoid aspirin or ibuprofen for pain for 5 days.
- Avoid direct sunlight and sunbeds for 5 days.
- Avoid hot baths and showers (tepid water only) for 5 days.
- Nodules are not uncommon. They can last up to a month and usually disappear without any intervention. However, the doctor would need to assess anything unusual.
- A compression garment may be worn for 2-5 days following treatment (this will be guided by your Practitioner’s recommendation).
- Contact Javaani if you have any concerns without delay.
How will I feel after the treatment?
Redness in the affected area is common. You may experience bruising and/or swelling. Mild discomfort is common, but some may have more prolonged pain. This can be managed, and we provide guidance and support throughout your treatment journey. Occasionally, small fatty lumps may form, but they disappear within 3-4 weeks without any treatment.
What is the downtime for fat dissolving injections?
Usually, no downtime if treating a body area. Double chin treatment may cause visible redness, bruising or swelling and it’s better to organise a few days off work.
Is the treatment safe?
This treatment is very safe if performed by a qualified doctor however no injectable treatment is completely risk-free. The absolute risk of serious complications however remains very low.
What is the cost of fat dissolving injections?
Are the results permanent?
Yes, the fat cells in the treated areas are destroyed by the treatment and expelled by the body. However, it is not the treatment for obesity, and you may grow fat deposits if you gain weight.
When can the results be seen?
Results are noticeable in 3 to 4 weeks after your 1-2 sessions.
How long do the results last?
Results are permanent unless you gain weight.
Is the procedure painful?
There can be slight discomfort but usually very well tolerated.
