Non-Surgical Facelift – Get the Best Fat Dissolving Injections for Face in Islamabad

Ever wished you could spot-reduce stubborn fat deposits on your face? Fat dissolving injections, also known as injection lipolysis, might be the answer you’ve been seeking.

These injections are noninvasive procedures that aim to melt away small amounts of fat from under the skin. Injections are typically administered in areas more commonly known as the problem areas such as the chin, legs, arms, and abdomen. 

Skinsmith can help you explore if fat dissolving injections are right for you and your facial sculpting goals.

What are Fat Dissolving Injections for Face?

These injections contain a cocktail of ingredients, typically including deoxycholic acid, that target and break down fat cells in specific areas. Deoxycholic acid is naturally occurring, produced within the human body by the liver. By injecting this acid in higher concentrations into specific areas, this acid can target and destroy fat cells. The fat cells are then naturally released through your lymphatic system. 

Face fat-dissolving injections in the jaw and cheek area can significantly slim the face and change the facial profile. These injections can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers to remodel the face. 

How Do Fat Dissolving Injections on Face Work?

Fatty deposits build over time, in certain areas especially around the jawline and under the chin. The solution from the fat dissolving injection disrupts the fat cell membrane, causing the fat to be released. This released fatty acid is then processed and eliminated by the body. However, multiple sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results, depending on the amount of fat reduction desired.

At SkinSmith, we understand that surgery isn’t for everyone, and therefore we provide a wide range of non-surgical facial treatments such as face contouring through fat dissolving treatments.
