Fat-dissolving injections in Korea is often used for the face. It is used in order to improve facial contours by (as the name suggests) dissolving the fat or reducing the size of fat cells in the injected area. The injection is appropriate for smoothing the facial line. It’s a quick and easy procedure for those with smaller, quite symmetric faces who are looking to make small improvements in their facial line.But have you ever wondered about its composition? But first of all, what exactly are fat-dissolving injections and why can't I seem to be able to find it?
In Korea, the quirk is that apart from specific brands like Belkyra (or known as Kybella in the United States), fat-dissolving injections in Korea are almost never called “fat-dissolving injections”. But instead, they all have different names and recipes depending on clinics. V-line injection, sculpting injection, contouring injection, even names such as egg injection (referring to an egg-shaped face) are just a few of such names. Clinics try to differentiate their injection with their own recipe of around 5 to 10 ingredients (which most often they do not disclose as it’s their “own special recipe”) and market them with their own naming. This is why, especially for foreign patients, it can be very confusing what the injections names actually are for. But the more pressing question that patients should be asking is: What’s actually in the injections? Are they safe? What should I be careful of?
