Mesotherapy, a safe innovative technique that originated in France, treats many conditions. It has been practiced in Europe for over half a century and it is used by thousands of practitioners around the world. It is the practice of injecting a small amount of specific vitamins, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, minerals or medication in to the middle layer of the skin called the “mesoderm” and directly to the area of the body that requires treatment.
Lipodissolve Mesotherapy is an innovative alternative to liposuction that involves a series of micro-injections that dissolve unwanted areas of fat. The injection consists of a mixture of phosphatidylcholine (PPC) and deoxcholate (DC), which are substances that occur naturally in the human body.
Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) micro-injections are delivered into the targeted treatment areas. The fat cells absorb the PCDC and become slightly inflamed and then harden. The hardened fat cells break down within a few weeks and are eliminated via the body’s natural processes.
Lipodissolve Mesotherapy can also be used for localized fat deposit reduction (love handles and saddle bags), cellulite reduction, face, neck and hand rejuvenation, and hair loss reduction.
Frequently Asked Questions
On the average, patients begin to see noticeable improvement after 2-4 sessions. While many experience results sooner, we cannot guarantee this. For the first several weeks while the body’s inflammatory response is prominent, you may feel “bloated” in the treated area. This is expected and only temporary. Once the body begins metabolizing the fat, contour improvement occurs.
The average person is born with a certain number of fat cells and after adolescence does not develop more. Lipodissolve will permanently remove fat cells in the area of treatment, leaving only a thin layer of cells, unless a large amount of weight is gained, because the fat dissolving formula actually destroys fat cells. If a person gains weight, the treated area can become larger because some fat cells still remain. However, the treated area should remain proportionate with the surrounding areas.
Less than an hour.
Most people return in 2-4 weeks and require 4-6 treatments to achieve the results they desire.
There may be some localized discomfort upon injection, and a minor burning sensation immediately following the treatment. Swelling will occur in the treated area, and soreness and inflammation may be experienced for several days after treatment. It is important to bear in mind that these inflammatory side effects produce a tighter and smoother overlying skin, which is highly desirable. Localized bruising, nausea, headache, and diarrhea have also been reported. Your fat area becoming firm is a sign the treatment is working. As your body breaks down the treated fat cells, they are excreted through the body’s normal metabolic process.
