Our Appearance Medicine Nurse, Brittany Fenwick, performs Lipo-Dissolve treatments in Nelson or at the Churchill Private Hospital in Blenheim.
Lipo-Dissolve utilises phosphatidylcholine (PPC). PPC is an enzyme that naturally occurs in our system to help break down fat in our diet. Importantly, Brittany harnesses the power of PPC by injecting it directly into the fatty tissue with tiny needles, permanently dissolving unwanted fatty deposits. We recommend multiple treatments for measurable loss and a smooth, natural look.
This is one of the best treatments to refine your profile by reducing excess fat under the chin, giving you a slimmer, more chiselled appearance.
A double chin affects many men and women regardless of age or weight. Excess fat below the chin may be a result of ageing, genetics or weight gain. Often exercise and diet are not enough to diminish the double chin effect. Double chin, or excess volume under the chin, is one of the most prevalent issues people have about their own appearance in both men and women.
FAQs about Lipo-Dissolve Treatments:
What can Lipo-Dissolve treat?
Firstly, this is a great treatment for double-chins. It’s also a good option for any other area with hard-to-shift fatty deposits. For example, a jowly neck area. It can also be used as a body treatment to target the abdomen, saddlebags, love handles, arms and knees. These body areas will invariably require more treatments.
What can I expect after this treatment?
You may experience some localised discomfort upon injection. We use a topical numbing cream and include a local anaesthetic in the medication we inject. The area treated may see swelling; you may also experience some soreness and inflammation for a few days after treatment.

How long does the procedure take?
This depends on the area that we are treating. But we will be able to give you an idea at your initial, complimentary consultation.
How quickly does it work?
Generally, a client will require one to three treatments for facial areas, like eyes, neck or chin. If you wish to target body areas, you’ll need more treatments. We would normally recommend your initial course of treatments are taken two to four weeks apart. Like all the cosmetic procedures we offer, treatment results vary to the individual.
