Injection Lipolysis

Lipolytic injection is a medical procedure indicated for the treatment of localized fat resistant to physical exercise, healthy eating and other treatments. These injections use an active substance that contains deoxycholic acid resulting in the breakdown of adipocytes (fat cells) leading, consequently, to their destruction.

This acid is also produced naturally by our body to aid in the digestion of fats, which makes this product totally biocompatible and resorbable by our body.

It consists of a potent lipolytic treatment where an aqueous solution, together with a biological solute, is injected into the adipose tissue in small amounts and in various locations in the area to be treated. The progressive release of this biological solute breaks the cell membrane of the adipocytes causing its content (glycerol and fatty acids) to be released into the surrounding subcutaneous space, being subsequently metabolized and, consequently, eliminated via the liver and kidneys.

These injections are currently approved by the FDA for the treatment of the submental area (usually known as “double-chin”), proving its effectiveness and safety. However, this procedure can also be performed in other areas of our body such as arms, abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, breeches, glutes, among others.

How many sessions are needed?

Most people have seen improvements since the first treatment session.

The number of sessions required varies individually.

The time interval between sessions must be at least 4 weeks.

Is there any recovery time?

After the procedure you may experience some discomfort, burning or pain in the treated area, and there may also be the formation of edema, hematoma and erythema.

With the exception of edema which can take up to 4 weeks to disappear completely, all other effects are temporary and do not interfere with your daily routine and, after treatment, you can resume your normal activities.

You should only pay attention to the practice of physical exercise that cannot be performed on the day of application of the product.

Do adipocytes that are dissolved by lipolytic injections disappear permanently?

Once eliminated, adipocytes are not reproduced by our organism again, which means that the results achieved are permanent. However, if you start eating less and have a less healthy lifestyle, you can put on weight again although the distribution of fat is different.

The adipocytes that still remain in our body can increase and may result in new deposits of fat in other areas of the body.

Do lipolytic injections lose weight?

Lipolytic injections are not a method of slimming, they are only used to dissolve some fat deposits in specific areas of the body. People who are subjected to this procedure must have a stable weight.

What is the difference between lipolytic injections and liposuction?

Until very recently, surgery – liposuction, was the only effective technique in removing fat. However, over the years, several studies have been carried out to develop a minimally invasive technique that, through the injection of a substance, would lead to the effective and safe destruction of adipocytes, in patients with small fat deposits.

Thus, lipolytic injections have been indicated as the ideal technique for obtaining these results, being the most sought-after solution as a way to avoid plastic surgery. Through its administration through microneedles, in a non-surgical way, we are able to give people the desired body contours and a gradual change in their self-image.

Lipolytic injections can also serve as an additional treatment after liposuction, in cases of people who are left with irregular body contours and remaining fat deposits (“dimples”), so that these are removed.

It is advisable to combine treatments such as radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to optimize results.
