Lipodissolve has become increasingly popular with the demand for non-surgical weight loss procedures. It’s not as well known as some other weight loss techniques such as laser liposuction or even acupuncture weight loss, but patient reviews seem to shed a great amount of positive light on the procedure.
A form of injection lipolysis, Lipodissolve uses a series of injections to help reduce unwanted, localized fat deposits. These are generally zones such as love handles, muffin tops, cellulite, or saddlebags. In terms of weight loss on a larger scale, Lipodissolve can help break down fat cells and make them easier to burn away.
Lipodissolve is commonly confused with mesotherapy, but the two are actually different procedures. Mesotherapy is a holistic treatment, and it does not use any medically active ingredients.
Lipodissolve, on the other hand, uses phosphatidylcholine/deoxycholate (PC DC) to help break down these fat cells, and the other ingredients that make up the injection solution are variable. They may include vitamins, minerals or even hormones. It is said that this concoction of ingredients is customized by each practitioner in order to produce the best results possible for each individual patient.
There haven’t been too many published studies on Lipodissolve to date, so the risks and side effects thus far are mostly speculated. However, there’s no question that the injections do actually liquefy fat, but one must wonder where the liquefied fat goes if it does not remain in its original zones. Some potential new homes for the fat include the liver, the heart, blood vessels, or it may simply shift. While your love handles or bra roll may have disappeared, now you run the risk for premature heart attack or liver failure.
Treatments usually consist of ten to twelve sessions, each occurring at four to six week intervals. Roughly one Lipodissolve treatment should occur over the course of about ten to fifteen months. It is no quick and easy weight loss fix. It’s also very important for anyone considering lipodissolve to remember that their desired outcome will only be achieved if they incorporate daily exercise and healthy eating habits into their lives.
