Intralipotherapy (Fat Dissolving Injections)
What is Intralipotherapy?
Intralipotherapy or fat dissolving injections contain a natural product named Deoxycholate which is more commonly known as Bile Acid. Bile Acid is produced by bacteria in the gut,it helps to emulsify fat and aids in digestion.
Deoxycholate disrupts the fat cell membrane and thus melts the fat, this process is called cell lysis and is a permanent method of fat removal.
Intralipotherapy uses a naturally occurring substance found in the human body and is therefore hypoallergenic and bio compatible.
Whereabouts can I have Intralipotherapy?
Intralipotherapy or fat dissolving injections are compatible with the following areas:
Upper and lower back
Who can have intralipotherapy or fat dissolving injections?
Both men and women over the age of 18 are suitable candidates for Intralipotherapy
How many treatments will I need?
For the face, neck and chin, two treatments are required 6 weeks apart. For all other areas a course of 4 treatments are often required with 6 week intervals.
What are the side effects of Intralipotherapy?
Side effects can include transient swelling and bruising which can persist for several weeks. However as part of your treatment you will be invited back into clinic for lymphatic drainage and cavitation where necessary. Temporary nausea can be a common side effect experienced by patients who have chin and neck treatments. This is not always needed by patients but is an option to those who would prefer clinical support and management by our expert team of friendly, professional staff. We also recommend our patients wear compression garments post procedure to aid quicker recovery.
