Frequently Asked Questions About Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments
What are Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments?
Lipolysis Mesotherapy treatments are an innovative alternative to liposuction that involves a series of Mesotherapy treatments that dissolve unwanted areas of fat. The Mesotherapy treatment consists of a mixture of hosphatidylcholine (PPC) and deoxcholate (DC), which are substances that occur naturally in the human body.
How do Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments work?
Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) micro-treatments are delivered into the targeted treatment areas. The fat cells absorb the PCDC and become slightly inflamed and then harden. The hardened fat cells break down within a few weeks and are eliminated via the body’s natural processes.
What is PCDC?
(PPC) is a naturally occurring substance within the body that comprises up to 60% of cell membranes, facilitates cell membrane transport, and is a component in bile that is responsible for emulsifying the fat we consume in our diet for absorption. The PPC used in most injectable fat reducing formulas is derived from the soybean lecithin.
Deoxycholate, present in the body as sodium deoxycholate, is a bile salt that functions to make PPC soluble in water. It acts as a detergent and also aids in the breakdown of fat consumed in our diet.
How does it work?
First, the Mesotherapy treatment disrupts the fat cell membrane. This causes the cells to burst, releasing their enzymes and fatty content. Second, an inflammatory response ensures, allowing the debris to be “cleaned up” by the macrophages that have migrated to the area. This inflammation is responsible for the redness and soreness but also allows for tissue retraction. Lastly, new collagen is deposited in the area, causing skin retraction with denser, firmer skin character. The fat and cellular debris that are removed are collected as waste and excreted through the body’s normal metabolic pathways, through the urinary and bowel systems.
What body parts can be treated and how often ?
Areas that can be treated with Lipolysis Mesotherapy treatments include the inner and outer thighs, buttocks, and love handles, back of the arms, the upper and lower abdomen, the chin and jowls, knees, upper and lower back. It can also be used for various conditions such as localized fat reduction, skin-retraction, stretch marks, cellulite, fatty breast reduction in men and cellulite. It also improves skin tone and elasticity, and increases collagen production and require 6 treatments “1 Treatment Per Week” (DEPENDING ON CLIENTS BODY FAT) to achieve the results they desire.
Please note: Treatments For extreme weight loss requirement might need extra treatments to reach desired Results.
Are the treatments painful? What are the side effects?
There may be some localized discomfort upon injection, and a minor burning sensation immediately following the treatment. Swelling will occur in the treated area, and soreness and inflammation may be experienced for several days after treatment. It is important to bear in mind that these inflammatory side effects produce a tighter and smoother overlying skin, which is highly desirable. Your fat area becoming firm is a sign the treatment is working. As your body breaks down the treated fat cells, they are excreted through the body’s normal metabolic process.
Any activity restrictions after treatment ?
For the first 2 to 3 DAYS after a treatment, vigorous physical activity or exercise/alcohol consumption is not recommended. Also heat like sauna’s, sun bed, direct sun, warm water and massages. After that time period, playing sports or exercising is acceptable. Please consume 2litre water per day for your first 5 days and if you can keep this up for every day there after.
When will I see results?
On the average, patients begin to see noticeable improvement after 3 – 5 days (please bear in mind everybody’s body differs from one another). For the first several weeks while the body’s inflammatory response is prominent, you may feel “bloated” in the treated area. This is expected and only temporary. Once the body begins metabolizing the fat, contour improvement occurs.
Is it permanent?
The average person is born with a certain number of fat cells and after adolescence does not develop more. Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments will permanently remove fat cells in the area of treatment, leaving only a thin layer of cells, because the fat dissolving formula actually destroys fat cells. However, the treated area should remain proportionate with the surrounding areas.
Does it result in weight loss?
Yes. Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments helps dissolve stubborn fat deposits.
How many procedures have been performed?
More than 50,000 procedures have been done internationally since the mid 90s.
How does it differ from Liposuction?
Both procedures permanently remove unwanted fat. However, Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments are non-invasive procedures; unlike liposuction, there is no anaesthesia, no surgery, and no downtime.
Who is a good candidate?
The best candidates for Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments have a body mass index (BMI) of 20 – 60kg, unwanted deposits of fat that have responded poorly to diet and exercise.
Candidates with the following conditions should NOT be treated with Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments:
- Allergic to Soy/eggs
- Multiple Cardiac Drugs (Hepherin/wharphiren)
- Acute Febrile Illness
- NIDDM *obtain approval of patients physician
- Under 18 years of age
