What is Lipodissolve or Fat Dissolving?

Lipodissolve is a term used to describe the process of dissolving fat by means of injection.

How does Lipodissolve work?

Lipodissolve uses Phosphatidylcholine [PTC] as the main ingredient to breakdown fat. Although PTC is naturally found in the body, the PTC used in lipodissolve is derived from soybeans. Clients should not consider this treatment if they are allergic to soybeans. PTC is injected with very fine needles directly into the unwanted fat deposits. The fat is broken down into a soluble form and removed by normal liver and kidney function.

Is this treatment safe?

Unlike liposuction and surgery, Lipodissolve does not have the same risks associated with general anaesthesia or sedation, and the other complications of surgery.

Are the results permanent?

If an appropriate diet and exercise program is conducted in association with Lipodissolve treatment, the results of the procedure are permanent.

Are there any side effects?

Most clients experience discomfort after treatment and side effects can include

  • Bruising

  • Swelling

  • Tenderness and sometimes pain in the treated areas.

These side effects can last up to 2 weeks and as the symptoms are mild, most clients continue their normal activies after the procedure.
