FAQs

The procedure takes about 15 minutes. Dr Aaron injects local anaesthetic first to significantly reduce pain and discomfort. Many other clinics rely on ice only, but Dr Aaron believes that his patients should be as comfortable as possible, and has had very positive feedback regarding this approach. The product is then injected. The anaesthetic will last around an hour, and mild discomfort will be noticed thereafter. It has been described as a tightness, and bruised sensation. Dr Aaron may follow up his Fat Dissolving patients at the 8 week mark for a repeat treatment. All patients will require at least 2 treatments to achieve the best results.

Dr Aaron will discuss the details of this option during a consultation, and will only use this if the implications are clearly understood by you.
