There will be a numbing cream and ice applied before the injections. A small needle is used and patients report a burning or “spicy” sensation while the medication is being injected. This usually lasts for about 30-45 minutes post treatment. You will experience some soreness over the next couple days to weeks. Ice for comfort (not swelling) and Tylenol (not Advil) will help.

 The medication will slowly break down the fat cells over the 5 week period in between treatments.

Most common are moderate swelling for 7 days or longer, bruising and discomfort. Swelling is expected, which means the treatment is working! More rare side effects will be discussed at your consultation.

Thyroid cancer treatment within the last year, swollen lymph nodes, infection or skin breakdown in the treatment area, pregnant or breastfeeding, bleeding disorder, history of swallowing difficulties, and kidney or liver dysfunction.
