Some fat deposits are often impossible to shift even with a well-balanced diet and exercise regime. Fat deposits commonly occur on parts of the body such as the chin, referred to as “double-chin”, hips, stomach, or flabby thighs.

Lipolysis is a non-surgical fat dissolving treatment that targets stubborn fat deposits. This treatment won’t necessarily reduce the number on your scale but will help you achieve a more contoured body when combined with a strict workout regime, clean nutritional plan, and drinking plenty of water.

Our very own Dr. Bassant Morsy, Cosmetic Dermatologist at The Elixir Clinic in Abu Dhabi, answers the most frequently asked questions about this treatment. Watch the video to learn more about Lipolysis.

Lipolysis uses a combination of active ingredients injected safely and effectively using a micro-needle to eliminate small, stubborn pockets of fat which resist controlled diet and exercise.

The effects are long-lasting and best results can be achieved with post-treatment maintenance that includes a healthy clean diet, daily exercise regime, and skin tightening treatments such as our BTL Exilis Ultra™ 360 machine.

The BTL Exilis Ultra™ 360 combines radio-frequency and ultrasound to precisely tighten skin with no downtime. This treatment is recommended before your Lipolysis sessions for maximum results. Discover how this treatment works: SKIN TIGHTENING AT ELIXIR



This treatment is quite effective in areas where smaller fat deposits collect such as:

  • Cheeks (sagging)

  • Hips (love handles)
  • Upper armS

  • Knees OR Ankles
  • Thighs (saddlebags)
  • Corrective measures after liposuction



For Lipolysis, we recommend four to six sessions every 2 weeks and will be dependent on the area being treated.

Results may be noticed immediately after the first session but it varies from one client to another. Other factors in results being noticed are the amount of fat deposit in the area and how the client’s body reacts to the product.

On average, results are noticed after the third session, while others notice results after their third session. Best results can be achieved when combined with exercise and diet, in addition to combining with treatments such as body skin tightening.



During the procedure, there is minimal pain or discomfort at the points of injection; varies for each client and their level of tolerance to pain.


The risks are extremely low in comparison to surgical liposuction, and even bruising and swelling are far more common during surgical liposuction.

During the consultation, prior to the procedure and upon completion of treatment, clients are always advised on all potential post-treatment side effects such as potential swelling, warm sensation in areas of the injection site, bruising, itching, and discomfort or sensitivity to pressure. Most side effects, if any, will usually resolve within 3- 5 days post-treatment.


There is no down-time with Lipolysis when compared to surgical liposuction. Downtime varies on the area of treatment, for example in areas such as the abdomen, hips, back, or arms exercise can be resumed immediately after treatment.

Certain areas may cause more swelling than others but it always varies from one client to another.


Yes, fat dissolving injections can help reduce cellulite by firming the skin but this will all depend on the post-care maintenance.


Treatment costs vary for each client as it is dependent on the area and size being treated. For more information on pricing, we recommend booking a consultation at one of our branches nearest to you.

EDIT: Unfortunately, since they started their move to Harrods, the service has been appalling. I have tried to be... understanding and patient, but it is impossible to get in touch with them, despite them sending out regular mass emails with new offers or services. I used to go for Ozone Therapy, but they suddenly stopped their service, upon which I am quite dependant, and they did not inform me of this in advance nor did they offer me the money back for money I spent on pre-paid services I am now no longer able to receive. It would be lovely if someone from your team will be in touch. I feel a little foolish having to leave a bad review in order to get in contact with someone. I have always been met with exceptional service, professionalism and kindness from everyone at the Elixir Clinic. Have been going there monthly for about three years now, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I get their Ozone Therapy treatment once a month and it has truly changed by body and mind for the better. I also have not been sick in three years, and I used to be sick all the time, so this is definitely down to Ozone. Benefits of Ozone are that you get more oxygen into your blood, which boots your immune system. It has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Ozone basically breaks down the bacterial cell walls, inhibits fungi growth and stops viruses from reproducing. Ozone has the properties to heal you from the HSV (herpes), HIV, SARS, arthritis, viral diseases etc. Before I got Ozone, I had HSV outbreaks monthly, but I have not had any since my first treatment. Ozone is incredibly popular in many Eastern European cities, but for some reason it isn't widespread (I am guessing because there's no money in healthy people...?). Anyway, the Elixir Clinic has provided me with help, knowledge, support and laughs every single time I have visited, and I am so grateful for them. They also provide a huge variety of other treatments that I know others have been incredibly pleased with, and I am going to be trying the Vitamin drips soon as well!read more

Thank you to The Elixir Clinic, with what is going with the pandemic I was very worried about my immune system. They... have amazing IV's especially the immunity which I believe has helped me, not only with boosting my immune system but providing a general energy boost whilst working long hours from home.read more

A welcoming experience that was ideal for helping to solve my jet lag after a work trip the the states. I had a... "VitaDrip" infusion that lasted around 45 minutes and to be honest, I was already feeling improvements such as increased energy levels and less muscular fatigue. This will now be a monthly visit!read more
