Lipotherapy is a cosmetic procedure used for areas of fat and cellulite that do not respond to diet and exercise. This is a non-surgical method for spot-fat reduction. It permits the physician to target specific areas for lipolysis. It consists of small, almost painless injections into the stored fat just underneath the skin in order to smooth out cellulite, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate body fat in specific area. The ingredients injected have been found to actually cause a dissolving effect upon the fat and can permanently remove fat cells. The fat dissolves, is metabolized, and is then safely excreted by the kidneys.
What areas can be treated?
This treatment can be applied to areas such as saddle bags, eye bags, love handles, abdomen, inner thighs, outer thighs, chin, and arms. Lipotherapy is an excellent means of body contouring.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments differs from person to person, depending upon body region and body size. It is recommended to have 4 treatments in intervals of 3-4 weeks in order to have satisfactory results.
What Happens After Treatment?
While there is no down time, it is normal for the patient to experience minor itching, bruising, and redness for a few days following treatment. Swelling is also to be expected for a few days after Lipotherapy treatment. Depending on the patient, soreness may be present up to 14 days after the treatment. After the swelling subsides, there is a noticeable reduction of localized fat in the treated area. The skin of the treated area then naturally retracts, without need for surgery or other treatments.
What are the possible side effects?
There may be minor pain, throbbing and tenderness in the treated areas with some bruising following the procedure.
Why choose Lipotherapy over surgical techniques such as liposuction?
Lipotherapy treats fat deposits directly and the result is a smoother skin surface. Lipotherapy locally reduces fat in specific areas and is a non-surgical procedure that does not require hospital admittance, general anesthesia, or downtime.
