Breaking down fat reduction treatments

Fat freezing, fat burning, fat dissolving – we now have a multitude of non-invasive fat reducing treatments available to us. So, what’s the difference and which one’s best? To help you select the treatment that’s right for you, here’s our handy guide to fat reduction treatments: 

Fat Dissolving

Fat dissolving injections target and effectively reduce small and stubborn fat pockets by injecting a substance called phosphatidylcholine (PC) into the treatment area. PC is a natural compound derived from soybean. When it’s injected directly into fat pockets, it causes the fat cells to rupture and breakdown via the body’s usual metabolic process, resulting in a more contoured shape. The treatment delivers long-lasting results (up to two years) and is best for anyone with small stubborn areas of fat around the hips, thighs and stomach.  

Chin Sculpting

Similar to our fat dissolving injections, our chin sculpting injections target and effectively reduce stubborn fat under the chin and around the neck and jawline. The injections contain a synthesised deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected below the chin, it begins to destroy and permanently eliminate fat cells. Again, the treatment delivers long-lasting results of up to four years and is best for anyone who just can’t shift that dreaded double chin, no matter how hard they exercise or how healthy they eat.  

Fat Freezing

Fat freezing treatments, such as CoolSculpting®, uses controlled cooling via a hand-held device to target stubborn fat cells underneath the skin. These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, via your body’s usual process, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. It’s a painless treatment with zero downtime and is great for people looking to reduce stubborn fat, without injecting a substance into the area. Unlike fat dissolving injections, fat freezing can treat wider areas. Again, results are long-lasting as the fat cells are permanently destroyed.   

Fat Burning

Fat burning treatments, like truSculpt® 3D, are also highly effective in not just reducing stubborn fat, but firming and tightening the treatment area. A handheld device, truSculpt® 3D emits radio frequency energy deep below the skin’s surface to heat and damage fat cells, which the body will then naturally eliminate over the course of approximately six to 12 weeks. Once again, it’s a great treatment for people who would prefer not to inject substances to dissolve fat, or who want to treat a wider range of areas. truSculpt® 3D can treat arms, thighs, abdomen, love handles and a double chin, to name a few. Typically, a series of treatments are required to achieved the best result, which is long-lasting when supported by a healthy diet and exercise.
