The latest trend on TikTok is the fat-dissolving Lemon Bottle. It claims amazing results and has sparked a widespread conversation. Fat-dissolving treatments, like those involving lemon-infused bottles, claim to reduce localised fat. However, scepticism about their results and effectiveness persists among the public.
To find out more we spoke to Dr Toni Phillips, Group Clinical Director at sk:n clinics...
The current appeal of fat-dissolving injections, specifically the Lemon Bottle trend, lies in their perceived low-key, non-invasive, and convenient nature. Unlike other fat-dissolving injections, Lemon Bottle stands out for being relatively affordable and requiring minimal downtime, making it more attractive and accessible to a broader audience.
Today, individuals prefer quick beauty fixes, the fat dissolving Lemon Bottle has gained popularity for its claim to deliver remarkable results, igniting widespread conversations on social media and sparking a trend of providers showing its effectiveness in dissolving bacon fat!
Although discussions around the Lemon Bottle have garnered a lot of attention there has also been a lot of apprehension associated with safety concerns, the genuine outcomes of the procedure, and its effectiveness. Dr Toni Phillips, Group Clinical Director at sk:n clinics provides insight into the benefits and potential risks associated with fat-dissolving treatments.
Have you heard of Lemon Bottle? 
Yes, it's an injectable system for localised lipolysis (fat dissolving).
Lemon Bottle is a newer formulation supposedly using organic compounds rather than synthetic chemicals such as PPC or Sodium Deoxycholate.
The idea is that is it a safer, cleaner way to destroy the fat cells and remove them from the body.

What are your thoughts on injectable fat-dissolving products? 
The main indication of injectable fat-dissolving products is for minimal facial or body contouring. These products are not designed to remove large areas of fat or to be used as a weight loss system. The best results are achieved when dealing with stubborn small areas of fat resistant to a well-balanced diet and consistent exercise program. For example, sub-mental fullness (fat under the chin); bra bulge; abdominal fat (stomach roll or love handles); upper inner and outer thighs and arm fat. To maintain good results, it is recommended to continue to follow a healthy, active lifestyle, with good nutrition and plenty of exercise.
Are they safe? 
Yes, it is fair to say that injectable lipolysis systems are safe, as long as they are administered by a fully qualified, trained and certified medical injector. Lipolysis systems such as Lemon Bottle have been around for 10 years which is how we know that the above-mentioned factors are extremely important for an effective, lasting result.
How do they dissolve the fat? 
Lemon Bottle uses ingredients to break down the membranes of the fat cells to release the fat (apoptosis) and then maintains liquification of the fat (and decomposed cellular products) until it is removed naturally through the body's lymphatic system. This process can take up to 12 weeks.
How can patients be sure that the areas of fat they want will be targeted? 
There is never any guarantee of a result with this type of fat removal when compared with treatments such as targeted surgical liposuction. It is important to choose a qualified medical injector with the appropriate training for the use of this product. The technique is very specific for each different area to be treated and should be fully discussed at the consultation.
What are your recommendations for people wanting to slim down certain areas of their body? i.e. chin, stomach, arms etc 
Proper nutrition and an active lifestyle; smaller areas or stubborn small pockets of fat are suitable for Lemon Bottle; for larger areas, I would recommend surgical liposuction or cryofreezing performed by a doctor.
Do you offer this treatment or anything similar in the clinic? 
I don't personally carry out any fat-dissolving procedures, but they are very popular.
We have recently spoken to Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, Mr Naveen Caval who has issues a warning against this latest TikTok trend:
"It's being touted as the fastest fat dissolver there is, but it doesn't appear to have clinical evidence behind it to lay claim to this," states Mr Cavale. "My advice would be don't rush in for it. It still needs assessing and regulating before it would appear on my personal roster of treatments. It might turn out to be great, it might also be a disaster, so I would personally say it’s not worth rolling the dice.”
