Ever wished for a magic wand that would smoothen out those uneven bumps under your clothes? Injection lipolysis may be the magical treatment that you were wishing for. Most people are aware that inspite of a good diet and exercise programme, there are some areas which are prone to stubborn fat, especially the belly, sides and thighs. Lipolysis uses some active metabolites which are deposited into the problem area, causing the fat in the fat cells to be dissolved, reducing inches from the circumference. This gives visible improvement on the surface, making you look great in figure hugging clothes.
How does Injection Lipolysis work?
Injection Lipolysis uses active metabolites like Phosphatidyl Choline (PPC) which has been used from many years for the treatment of fat emboli. This substance dissolves the fat inside the fat cell or the adipocyte, and then the dissolved fat is excreted from the body.
What results can I expect?
Results of Injection Lipolysis usually take 4 to 6 weeks to show. A single session of treatment over the abdomen can show upto 2 inches if combined with exercise and diet.
