Injection lipolysis or lipodissolve is an increasingly popular technique to treat localized fat accumulation . It is the practice of injecting phosphatidyl choline/ sodium deoxycholate (PDC/DC) compounds in the subcutaneous fat for dissolving unwanted body fat almost instantly in parts of the body where exercise doesn’t work. Lipotropic substances are injected into the body mainly to reduce excessive, stubborn fat in parts like the double chin, stomach, thighs, buttocks , hips, love handles and arms.
Lipo dissolve injections are different from liposuction. They differ because while liposuction is a surgery which removes fat from the body, lipo injections don’t remove fat; they just help the fat to dissolve. The main advantage of this treatment is that it allows the patient in avoiding surgery, is less expensive and less invasive than liposuction. Lipo Injection is a perfect solution for those looking to treat small pockets of fat. Average number of treatments required is 3-5 at a gap of 4-6 weeks.
By definition, a lipotropic substance dissolves the excessive deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat by the liver. The vitamins and amino Acids in the injections increase the function of the liver which prevents additional accumulation of fat by breaking it down.
The key ingredients compounded in Lipo injections are:
Phosphatidylcholine is naturally found in the body as a phospholipid in cell membranes. Phosphatidylcholine injections( made from soy bean-oil) is a phospholipid that functions as an emulsifier in bile.
a bile salt used to solubilize the natural phospholipid in water.
