Fat Lipolysis is a treatment for stubborn fat pockets that do not respond well to dieting or other weight loss methods.
How does it work?
The solution, containing vitamin C and iron, uses the body’s metabolism by acting on the fat cells, causing natural fat cell destruction. The result is a reduction in those unwanted bulges and is most often used to reduce fat around the tummy, upper thighs, hips, love handles and saddle bags. It can also be used for excess fat under the chin, i.e. double chin as well as certain under-eye fat pockets.
How many Treatments are required?
This depends on the amount of fat in the area that needs to be dissolved. Usually 2 to 3 treatments are necessary if there is a moderate amount of resistant fat.
Treatments can be repeated every 2 to 4 weeks. In most cases, one treatment is sufficient but up to 3 treatments can be necessary over a 6 to 8 week period.
What is the down time after the treatment?
Some swelling and bruising are to be expected for about 3-7 days after the injections.
It’s necessary to keep hydrated to help flush out the toxins and melted fat for a few days afterwards.
Is fat lipolysis a substitute for Weight Loss program?
Fat lipolysis injections are used for body sculpting and NOT indicated for people who have a large amount of weight to lose, and have global weight loss to tackle. A weight loss program and exercise would be needed to trim down before injections can be performed.
