Lipolysis treatment

What is injection lipolysis?
Injection lipolysis is used to remove fat tissue permanently by injecting appropriate agents. It is particularly recommended for small and medium sized fatty acids in “problematic” areas such as the abdomen, outer thighs, knees, shoulders and hips.

What does the lipolysis treatment involve?
Preparation is injected directly into the fatty tissue to be reduced. This substance penetrates through the cell membranes into the fat cells, and when administered in larger quantities it tears down their structure. When it penetrates the cell, it helps break down triglycerides. Then, together with the lipoproteins, it is transported straight to the liver, where the fats are broken down and then expelled from the body.

There is no specific number of treatments needed. It all depends on the thickness of fat tissue in the treated area. After the treatment, the skin is firm and smooth, because the disintegration of cells accumulating fat causes local elimination of cellulite. Clients who chose this treatment usually describe the pain level as medium. In places covered by lipolysis a few days after surgery, temporary redness, swelling, discomfort and slight pain or bruising may occur. In order to accelerate the effects of the treatment it is recommended to perform lymphatic drainage or dermomassage.

The injection lipolysis treatment takes from a few minutes to half an hour. The duration depends on the area undergoing the treatment.

What effects can be expected after injection lipolysis?

How long do the effects last?
The effect after the treatment is permanent. For a better effect it is recommended to use lymphatic drainage (e.g. dermassage). This will result in more effective removal of fat from the cells.
