what is LipoTherapy?
LipoTherapy is a treatment utilizing a combination of naturally occurring compounds administered through a series of micro-injections for the purpose of fat reduction. LipoTherapy injections reduce the size of localized fat deposits in body regions where treated. It is an excellent non-surgical alternative for those patients seeking minimally invasive techniques to improve body contour. It is not a treatment for weight reduction but rather a procedure for improving shape and reducing targeted fat.
What does LipoTherapy do?
- Dissolves Fat
- Quick Results
- Targets Problems Areas: Double Chin, Stomach, Thighs
- Improves The Appearance Of Cellulite
- Improves Self Esteem And Confidence
What is being injected?
LipoTherapy is a compounded solution that consists of naturally occurring substances within the body. The solution comprises up to 60% of cell membranes, facilitates cell membrane transport, and is a component in bile that is responsible for preparing the fat we consume in our diet for absorption. As with most injectable fat reducing formulas, our solution is derived from the soybean lecithin. Other components aid in the breakdown of fat consumed in our diet.
How does it work?
First the injected solution disrupts the fat cell membrane layer. This causes the cells to burst, releasing their enzymes and fatty content. Second, an inflammatory response develops allowing the debris to be “cleaned up” in the injected area. This inflammation is responsible for redness and soreness, but also allows for tissue retraction. Lastly, new collagen is formed 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 (urine and feces).
is the procedure safe?
LipoTherapy is very safe when injected inappropriate candidates by trained health professionals, like ours, that use a compounded solution. It is supported by clinical studies and research in the United State, Europe, and South America. In 1988, the first injections for cosmetic uses where reported with success. As of 2005, in the U.S. and other countries, more than 50,000 patients have been treated with successful cosmetic improvement and no long-term side effects or complications.
What areas can be treated?
LipoTherapy is ideal for treating areas such as:
- Upper/Lower back
- Upper arms
- Love handles
What to expect with downtime and results?
One of the advantages of LipoTherapy versus surgical alternatives is that it is minimally invasive and patients can typically return to normal activity immediately. While some tenderness and discomfort is to be expected, overall the treatments are very tolerable. Perhaps that is why some have dubbed this procedure “lunchtime lipo”. The minimal disruption in their daily schedule is why most find this procedure very appealing. On the average, patients begin to see noticeable improvement after 2-4 treatments. While many experience results sooner, we cannot guarantee this. Often, we inform patients that for the first several weeks while the body’s inflammatory response is prominent, they will feel “bloated” in the treated area. This is expected and only temporary. Once the body begins metabolizing the fat, contour improvement occurs.
