Fat-dissolving injections are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. The procedure involves injecting a unique solution into fat cells so that they can break down and go away. It’s been known to work well on stubborn areas like love handles and thighs, but it can be dangerous if done incorrectly. This is why you need specialized training before becoming an expert in this field—precisely what I will tell you about in this article!
Requirements for Training
Be a medical professionalYou will require a medical degree and registration with the General Medical Council to perform this service.
Be trained in the use of facial aesthetics by injecting botulinum toxins.
- It would help if you were trained in using facial aesthetics with injecting botulinum toxins.
- It would be best if you were introduced to fat-dissolving injections.
- By undertaking a course in facial anatomy, you will be able to identify which areas of your face can benefit from fat-dissolving injections and which areas should not have any treatment due to their sensitivity or other factors.
You must undertake a live patient demonstration of facial anatomy and cannula insertion techniques and record it.A cannula is a small tube that is inserted into your skin. The fat-dissolving solution can then be injected into the treated area, or liposuction may be performed, depending on your goal. For best results, it’s essential to understand how to use a cannula and inject HA filler safely. You will need to complete a live patient demonstration of facial anatomy and cannula insertion techniques, record this, and then pass the examination with flying colors.

Who Can Get Fat Dissolving Injection Training?Fat-dissolving injection training is serious, and only select professionals are allowed to administer it.
DoctorsFat-dissolving injections are a medical procedure, and only licensed doctors can perform them. To become a doctor, you must attend medical school for at least four years; pass the appropriate exams; complete an internship or residency program, and be licensed by your state’s board of medicine.
- Doctors who have completed these requirements have earned their MD (doctor) title.
NursesAs a nurse, you must know that you cannot administer fat-dissolving injections alone. There have been cases in which nurses have performed the procedure without proper training or supervision. This means that even though you may be able to help with the procedure, a doctor must always be present when administering fat-dissolving injections. If you are a nurse who wants to get more involved in this type of treatment and become an expert at administering fat-dissolving injections yourself, then make sure that any training you receive includes hands-on experience with actual patients.
Physician assistantsPhysician assistants are trained in the same way as doctors. They’re qualified to administer and interpret the results of all tests, including body fat measurements. Additionally, they can perform many other medical procedures, such as suturing wounds, taking blood pressure readings, and performing electrocardiograms (EKGs). In some states, physician assistants can prescribe medication for their patients.
Practitioners who have been trained in the procedure by certified doctors
- You must attend a training program by a certified doctor.
- It would be best if you were certified by the FDA to administer fat-dissolving injections.
Things to Learn at the Fat Dissolving Injection training
What is Aqualyx?Aqualyx is an innovative, non-surgical procedure that dissolves fat in your abdomen. The treatment uses Aqualyx and infuses it into the fatty tissue underneath the skin to remove excess fat. It’s used to treat fat in the area of the abdomen and can help you achieve a flatter stomach without having to undergo surgery or liposuction.
What are the side effects of fat-dissolving injections?
- Pain and swelling: As with any injection, there is a slight chance of bruising and swelling at the injection site. The good news is that these side effects are temporary (usually lasting less than 48 hours) and will go away as soon as the area heals.
- Bleeding disorders: If you have a bleeding disorder, such as hemophilia, or blood clotting disorders like von Willebrand’s disease or thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), you should not have fat dissolving injections because they can increase your risk of bleeding excessively.
- Silicone allergy: Fat-dissolving injections use silicon oil as an active ingredient. Some people may be allergic to silicone—if this is true for you, inform your doctor before having fat-dissolving injections done on yourself so they can avoid using anything containing silicone in their treatment plan.
Who can have fat-dissolving injections, and who can’t?Aqualyx is not suitable for everyone. Aqualyx is not ideal for people who have allergies to the ingredients.
- People with a history of blood clotting disorders, such as deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, should not use Aqualyx without medical advice. The risks of using Aqualyx may be higher than other procedures and need to be assessed by your doctor before treatment can proceed.
- If there’s any sign of infection at the injection site, please let your practitioner know immediately so they can assess where it came from and whether you are at risk of further infections or complications related to this area (such as cellulitis)
What aftercare do I need to follow after the fat-dissolving injections?Aftercare is crucial to follow and will help to ensure you heal quickly, safely, and efficiently. After your treatment, we recommend that you:
- Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours. Only lift to 10 pounds (or 5 kilograms) for the first two days after your procedure.
- Avoid alcohol or smoking for 48 hours. These products can disrupt blood clotting in the area where you had injections and may cause discomfort or swelling in the treated area of your body.
- Avoid hot baths or saunas for 24 hours after having a fat-dissolving injection treatment.
