Fat-dissolving injections with Juvalsim are, a non-surgical way to eliminate the fat cells that accumulate in problem areas. While diet and exercise can reduce fat in problem areas, fat-dissolving injections offer a non-invasive solution that targets a specific area and works to dissolve and destroy fat cells permanently.
To ensure you’re the right candidate for this treatment, a consultation with our Registered Nurses is recommended. All procedures involve risks and side effects. No guarantees are made on expected outcomes.
How does it work?
Our nurse administers a series of injections to the targeted area. The medication is a compound containing a synthesised deoxycholic acid and phosphatidylcholine, similar to the found in the digestive system. PC/DC is widely used to reduced localised fat deposits with mild adverse effects.
Is there any downtime?
It is normal to experience pain, some redness and swelling after the treatment. This response is the body’s natural reaction to the broken-down fat cells and rejecting them, so they are expelled permanently. In most cases, any swelling or discomfort will subside after 1-2 weeks. Most people will return to work after a few days.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of fat-dissolving treatments required will vary from patient to patient. You should only need 3-4 treatments approximately six weeks apart to see lasting results in most cases.
When will I see results?
Most patients will notice changes at around the 4-6 week mark. Once the fat stores have dissolved, the results are permanent.
What are the side effects?
Typical side effects of the medication include some pain, redness, swelling and discomfort after treatment. Rare serious side effects may also occur and include blood clotting, infection, nodules and skin sensitivities.
