CoolSculpting Vs Fat Dissolving Injections In VIC

When it comes to talking about fat reduction procedures, most people immediately think about ‘going under the knife’. Until recently, this may have been true, but modern contouring and shaping techniques are designed to be non-invasive and non-surgical. At Dr Tass Cosmetic and Skin Clinics, we take great pride in providing Melbourne patients with convenient and effective procedures like Coolsculpting and fat dissolving injections.


What Is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that freezes fat cells away through extremely precise cooling applied to specific areas of the body. The procedure is used to help patients achieve a toned, tight physique. It breaks down fat tissue under the skin by drawing the skin up into an application and crystallising fat cells.


What are Fat Dissolving Injections?

Fat dissolving injections use a solution of deoxycholic acid which liquifies cells in the targeted area permanently. Fat dissolving injections are extremely effective at breaking down fat cells in smaller areas for a smoother, more youthful look.


Which Areas Are Best for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is often preferred when targeting larger parts of the body. It is ideally suited for:

  • Under arms
  • Double chin
  • Love handles
  • Belly fat
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Back


Which Areas Are Best for Fat Dissolving Injections?

Fat dissolving injections are best for smaller areas such as:

  • Double chin 
  • Knees
  • Ankles
  • Stomach fat 
  • Hips
  • Thighs


Which Is Less Invasive?

Although both treatments are categorised as non-invasive procedures, the use of injections in the fat dissolving process means that it is marginally more invasive than CoolSculpting.


Which Is More Comfortable?

Fat dissolving injections involve multiple injections that are inserted into the areas being treated. Although the needles cause minimal pain, it is generally accepted that CoolSculpting is a much more comfortable procedure since the cold temperatures have a numbing effect on the area.


When Will I See Results?

The slimming effects of CoolSculpting treatment become visible within four to six weeks after treatment, with continued results for up to 16 weeks as the body flushes out fat cells.

Fat dissolving injections administered by one of our expert injectors will show visible results within 4 to 6 weeks after treatment.
