What is injection lipolysis?
Lipolysis is an innovative alternative to liposuction that involves a series of micro-injections that dissolve unwanted areas of fat. The injection consists of substances that occur naturally in the human body.
How does it differ from liposuction?
Lipolysis by injection is a non-invasive procedure; unlike liposuction, there is no anaesthesia, no surgery, and no downtime.
How does lipolysis work?
Micro-injections are delivered into the targeted treatment areas. The fat cells absorb the solution and fat cells break down within a few weeks and are eliminated through the body's natural processes.
When will I see results?
On average, patients begin to see noticeable improvement after 2-4 sessions.
How does it work?
The injected solution causes the cells to burst, this inflammation causes new collagen deposition in the area, causing skin retraction with denser, firmer skin character.
What body parts can be treated?
Areas that can be treated with lipolysis include the -
Inner and outer thighs,
Back of the arms,
Upper and lower abdomen, the
Chin and jowls,
Upper and lower back.
It also improves skin tone and elasticity and increases collagen production.
Are the treatments painful? what are the side effects?
There may be some localized discomfort upon injection, and a minor burning sensation immediately following the treatment. Swelling n soreness can occur in the treated area after treatment.
Does it result in weight loss?
No. Lipodissolve helps dissolve stubborn fat deposits, but it does not result in weight loss.
Is it permanent?
Lipodissolve will permanently remove fat cells in the area of treatment, leaving only a thin layer of cells, if a person gains weight, the treated area can become larger because some fat cells still remain.
Who is a good candidate?
The best candidates for lipodissolve have a body mass index (bmi) of less than 30 and unwanted deposits of fat that have responded poorly to diet and exercise.
