What is Lipolysitherapy?

Pharmacological lipolysitherapy is a non-surgical method that exploits the action of certain active ingredients that can be injected dermally and subcutaneously in order to reduce the volume of localised adiposity.

Lipolysitherapy involves the mesotherapeutic injection of phosphotidylcholine- and deoxycholic acid-based solutions into the subcutaneous panniculus adiposus. These solutions have a high fat-emulsifying capacity with a progressive lytic effect on the treated fat cells.

The treatment is reserved exclusively for localised fat deposits such as:

  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Underarms region
  • Inner knees
  • Arms
  • Legs

The technique involves injecting a cockail of drugs with lipolytic capabilities into areas of localised fat accumulation using small needles.
The treatment is quick and absolutely tolerable.

At the end of the treatment the patient will feel a pleasant warmth and itching at the treated site, symptoms that subside within a few hours.

Wearing elastic stockings for 1 week leads to a considerable reduction in post-treatment oedema and bruising.

The treatment lasts a few minutes and is carried out at the doctor's office.

The result is appreciable after 4 to 6 applications depending on the degree of fat accumulation, which can be carried out 15 to 21 days after the previous one.

The result is not immediate but the result of systematic stimulation and will therefore be appreciable after a few months.

The result is strongly correlated with the number of sessions performed.
