This is a mixture of iron, vitamin C and lignocaine.  It is injected into fat cells and allows those fat cells to die.  

Ceccarelli Fat dissolving injections

How does Cecarelli cause

fat to disappear

The combination of vitamin C and iron stimulates complex metabolic reactions in fat cells.  Calcium ions rush into fat cells causing the ultimate destruction of the fat cell through a number of reactions.  Effects are on fat cells only and no other cells are damaged.

​Ceccarelli can be injected into any area of the face or body including:

  • Double chin

  • Under eye fat pads

  • Jowls

  • Jaw line

  • Neck

Numbing cream is optional as there is a numbing agent in the solution that is injected.
