Fat Dissolving Injections vs. The Latest Trend: Lemon Bottle Injections

Fat Dissolving Injections vs Lemon Bottle Injections | Dr. Fehmida

Fat Dissolving Injections are a type of non-surgical treatment that does exactly what the name suggests: it dissolves the fat cells. In recent years, the demand for non-surgical fat reduction treatments has grown significantly. Two popular options in this field are Lemon Bottle and liposuction fat dissolving injections. These innovative treatments offer individuals a non-invasive solution for reducing stubborn fat deposits. 

Different Type Of Fat Dissolving Injections

The different types of Fat Dissolving Injections are Aqualyx, Liposuction, Deso and Lemon Bottle Fat Injections. However, the two types of injections that we are comparing in this blog are Liposuction and Lemon Bottle Fat Injections.

Active Ingredients 

The biggest difference in these products is the active ingredient that acts as the dissolvent. Liposuction, for example, is the primary form of Deoxycholic Acid, an FDA-approved ingredient to emulsify fat. Deoxycholic Acid naturally occurs in the body, it’s a bio acid and by-product created during metabolic, intestinal activity. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into targeted areas, it disrupts the fat cell membrane, causing the fat cells to break down and be eliminated from the body through natural processes.

Lemon Bottle Injections, on the other hand, are formed of Lecithin, Bromeliad and Riboflavin which is a form of Vitamin B2. So, while Lemon Bottle Injections and Liposuction both contain a naturally derived fat dissolving agent

FDA Approval

The biggest difference between them is that Lemon Bottle Injections have not received FDA approval.The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is an important measure to hold your aesthetic treatments as this accreditation means that medical products are effective and safe to public health.

Fat Dissolving Injections were first invented in 2002 so there were a lot of product testing and clinical trials before it was brought into the clinics. They first became popular in 2019 and since then, they have steadily grown in appeal due our culture being more concerned with self-improvement and optimisation.

Why Are Fat Dissolving Injections So Popular?

As a Non-Surgical Treatment there is minimal invasiveness, effectiveness and affordability compared to Surgical Procedures, like Liposuction. It has become a popular ‘double chin’ treatment – a relatively quick fix to targeting the stubborn fat that can accumulate on both the face and body and seem not to budge through exercise or healthy eating alone.

But they really hit the latest trend of Lemon Bottle Injections going viral which has stirred a lot of opinion and thought-provoking pieces on their validity as a treatment.

Are Fat Dissolving Injections Safe?

With all treatments that trend online, it’s important to always do your research. Tried and tested Fat Dissolving Treatments, like Liposuction, have a high reputability by our Consultant Dermatologist & Laser Skin Specialist Dr. Fehmida Arif. At our clinic we only offer clinically proven, safe & effective treatments. Given that Lemon Bottle is not clinically proven, licensed not consider it a safe treatment.We would never risk the health of our clients by injecting something without knowing exactly what was in it. 

Before considering Lemon Bottle injections with another clinic we would urge you to do your own research, consider the potential risks involved and consider alternative fat reduction treatments. 

How many Fat Dissolving Injections do you need?

Often this depends on the size of the area you’re looking to treat. However, a general guide is that we require 3-8 sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart to ensure the fat cells have been broken down and have moved through your body’s lymphatic system.

Where can Fat Dissolving Injections be used?

Fat Dissolving Injections are used in areas of the thighs, knees, below the buttocks, hips, stomach, chin and back.

Who can’t have Fat Dissolving Injections?

Fat Dissolving Injections are not suitable for pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding can not get this treatment and for people under the age of 18. Aside from these two contradictions, Liposuction is safe to use on people of varying ages and skin quality.

Do Fat Dissolving Injections hurt?

There is some stinging that can be experienced during and after the treatment. This is because it activates a process called lipolysis. Lipolysis is the metabolic activity that causes the liquidation of fatty acids so some discomfort may be experienced.

When can you see results?

You can often see the results after the first treatment but generally the full result effects will be seen a few weeks afterwards once any swelling has gone down. Some of the factors that can affect the final result will be how much pre-existing fat you have, your age, lifestyle, the stability of cell membranes, and whether you gain weight after treatment.
