Lipolysis / Fat Dissolving Injections
Fat collections in some areas of the body are harder to get rid of and even when the patient follows a healthy diet and exercise regime, the stubborn fat may dissolve slowly. With lipolysis injections, the process is accelerated allowing for faster fat removal without any invasive procedures. The treatment is not meant to replace healthy eating and exercise but can be used to aid fat loss.
The non-surgical procedure involves injecting lipolysis into the problem areas to diminish localized fat deposits. The injections contain the active ingredient, Lecithin, also known as PPC (Phosphatidyl choline), together with a cocktail of growth factors and peptides which dissolve the fat cell wall which results in fat reduction. The growth factors & peptides contained in the cocktail stimulate the production of collagen so that the dermis is strengthened and skin texture is improved.
Lipolysis injections are best suited for people who have small areas of stubborn fat. The best areas for treatment include the abdomen, hips, waist, double chin, bra bulges and arms. The treatment is not recommended for overweight patients as the procedure results in centimetre loss rather than weight loss.
In effect, it helps to tone the body by breaking up the fat cell walls. Once the walls are broken down, fat is released and removed from the body through normal body metabolism. Movement and water intake will help speed up results. The number of sessions required depends on the patient profile and assessing things such as size, weight and area to be treated, as well as the patient’s willingness to following a healthy lifestyle. Results can usually be seen after the third or fourth treatment. For best results, 4 to 8 treatments are required, 2 weeks apart. Lipolysis can be combined with Velashape, another treatment we offer to improve resistant fat pockets.
