Lipolysis

Lipolysis is used to dissolve localised fat deposits targeting deeper layers underneath skin.

It refers to small to medium unwanted localized areas of fat (stubborn fat) that is difficult to remove with diet and exercise.

How does Lipolysis work?

An active substance is injected directly into the subcutaneous tissue with aiming to destroy Localised fat deposits, without affecting surrounding fat tissue. The main role of Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) that is usually used, is to help emulsify and break down fat and cholesterol.

How many lipolysis sessions do I need?

The number of sessions needed differs from one person to the next due to individual responses to the medication and the type of fat being treated. Soft stubborn fat is easier to treat than fibrous fat. During the consultation, you will be informed as to how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired result. Results can be expected after 2-3 treatments.

However, during consultation you will be medically examined to find out do you have any underlying medical condition that keeps you from not being able to get rid of localised fat. We could offer Integrative medicine approach, and supportive aesthetic procedures such as VelaShape for body contouring, Cavitation for stubborn fat, Tripollar for sagging fat etc. to achieve desirable results.
