Our Slim-It solution is also known as fatdissolve, which is an injected form of fat reduction. Fat dissolve injections can be used to reduce the amount of fat in various places around the body including the chin, stomach, hips, thighs, back, neck and arms.
Fat dissolve has also been know to be a type of mesotherapy. These are a form of injection lipolysis that reduces the amount of fat in the treated areas. Unlike mesotherapy, our Slim-It solution has defined components which break down fat whereas it helps in the digestion and drainage of the broken down fats.
WHAT TO EXPECT
During the treatment no topical anesthetic is needed, however, icing the treatment area for 4-5 minutes prior to injection can reduce patient discomfort. The treatment area will then be injected in various locations for even coverage. Depending on the size, as little as 3-6cc may be injected whereas a larger area such as the stomach may receive 40-60cc. Once injection is complete, most patients are able to resume all normal activities. For optimal results, 4-10 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart will be needed.
The goal of the SLIM-IT procedure is to reduce the amount of unwanted fat in areas around the body including the chin, abdomen, hips, and thighs ect.. as well as reduce the appearance of cellulite.

POST TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Immediately after the treatment, the most commonly reported side-effects were temporary redness, bruising and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within 5 to 10 days. Cold or ice compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling. We at Skin Deep Cosmetics and Aesthetics recommend the use of compression garments post procedure. You can purchase one at the office or online.
We recommend taking Arnica for up to 7 days after each treatment to decrease bruising and inflammation.
Apply 1% Hydrocortisone cream, Benadryl spray or gel on treated areas to reduce itching or redness if occurs.
To minimize bruising, avoid all Aspirin related drugs, Anti-inflammatory drugs, Garlic, Flaxseed Oil, Vitamin E, Alcohol, spicy food, salty food and cigarettes 48 hours to 1 week after your treatment.
It is normal to feel “firmness” in the injection site first day after treatment. In some cases, a lumpy formation can be felt on the injected area. If necessary, massage area gently 2-3 times a day up to 72 hours
Do not exercise for 24 hours after treatment. Avoid strenuous exercises, sunbathing or tanning. Do not submerge in any water for 24 hours including (bath, sauna, pools, body of water, ect.)
