Injection lipolysis is a safe, non-invasive procedure used to reduce unwanted body fat build-up, in areas where healthy lifestyle changes have not been effective for reducing fatty tissue.
Injection lipolysis can be used to target many problem areas in males, such as a double chin, man boobs or a soft abdomen.
The process uses a combination of mild, fat-dissolving medication micro-injected directly into the unwanted fat layer under the skin.
As the chemicals dissolve the fat, it is flushed from the patient’s system through urination. There is mild post-treatment swelling, possible mild bruising but no need to wear any uncomfortable undergarments.
How does injection lipolysis work?
The active substance used for the injection lipolysis procedure, Phosphatidylcholine (PPC), is a lecithin extract taken from the soy bean. This extraordinary nutrient is responsible for the structural and mechanical element of every biological membrane. Emulsifying fat, lowering cholesterol, and activating the immune system response are just a few life sustaining properties of PPC. PPC is also the communicator molecule that regulates and controls what physically enters and exits each cell via its membrane.
Today, the PPC extracted from the soy bean is in such high purity that it contains no proteins and therefore triggers no allergic responses.
PPC injected into fat deposits has a detergent like effect, causing fat cells to rupture and dissolve. Fat released by the cell is metabolized by the liver and excreted by the body. There is also tightening of the skin in treatment areas, which may be more than would be achieved by liposuction of the fat deposit.
Depending on the body area treated, one to four treatment sessions are necessary. The majority of patients (89%) need either one (17%) or two (72%) injection sessions to achieve the desired results. Treatment sessions are taken 8 weeks apart. Results are typically seen 4 – 6 weeks after treatment.
