Lipodissolve / Injection Lipolysis
Lipodissolve – a non-surgical option to liposuction.
With Lipodissolve a series of micro-injections are injected to dissolve fat deposits on the face and body. It is an effective treatment option for treating localized fat reduction without surgery.
Lipodissolve micro-injections target the fat deposits. When injections are done to the fat area you wish to have reduced, the medications in the injections initiate the fat to gradually loosen, liquefy and finally dissolve and eliminate through the natural process.
With Lipodissolve, the different injection techniques can be applied either for skin retraction or fat reduction. Often Lipodissolve has been used to correct uneven effects from other procedures, such as surgical lipoplasty and cellulite.
Which part of the body can be treated with Lipodissolve?
Lipodissolve can be used to address fat deposits of the following areas: Thighs Hips Double chin/neck Fat of the cheeks and midface Fat deposits of the lower eye pads Upper arms Lower arms Upper abdomen Lower abdomen Love handles Fat deposits of the back Knees and legs.
Lipodissolve can also help to treat the following conditions: Gynecomastia Cellulite Xanthelasma Lipomas Fat of the pubic/genital area Skin retraction Scar reduction Surgical deformities or ‘ripples’ from surgical liposuction Some areas of use may require surgeon use to ascertain safety. Lipodissolve is sometimes used by plastic surgeons to mobilize fat during liposuction, or after liposuction to correct surgical deformities such as increased cellulite from liposuction of thighs, dogears and ‘ripple’ effect from surgery.
What can I expect from the procedure?
The procedure is seldom very painful, with exception to some body areas and body types, which may cause a bit more ache after therapy. Common side-effects are some light burning in the area injected, bruising, swelling and aching. Women should avoid Lipodissolve right before and during their period, as this will increase the sensation of discomfort dramatically. Cellulite treatment can contain a little more discomfort which can be reduced by ice or local anesthetics (creams).
Minimal downtime – Depending on body area treated, patients often return to normal activity immediately after treatment. Patients having facial treatments for double chin or facial fat will have extensive and unattractive swelling and may wish to stay off from work 3-4 days although this is not necessary. The normal time for swelling and soreness to disappear is one week. Some minor swelling may persist longer.
How does Lipodissolve differ from mesotherapy?
Injection technique and medications are unique for Lipodissolve. Mesotherapy is a slower imitation of Lipodissolve with stronger medications and may require as many as 20 sessions and can become very expensive. Lipodissolve contain a standardized mixture of pharmaceutical agents that have been monitored and researched for safety. The general response time is 1-4 sessions for results, depending on body type and metabolism and whether the patient is the right candidate.
