Fat dissolving injections – Intralipotherapy
Localised fat deposits are subcutaneous adipose tissue accumulations in specific anatomical areas that alter body silhouette. They are unsightly and unresponsive to the normal signals to activate the metabolism (low-calorie diet, physical exercise).
They can be successfully treated with intralipotherapy (fat dissolving injections). This treatment is a widely used technique in aesthetic medicine. It uses adipocitolytic solutions, that are solutions containing natural cleansers that cause fat cell lysis. Using intralipotherapy, the solution is released parcel-style and evenly, directly into the fat layer, gradually reducing its size.
The treatment can be repeated after a suitable period of time. The solution is slow acting and the gradual action needs time to achieve the treatment aim.The fat cells in the layer treated with sodium deoxycholate will undergo lysis and then a process of degradation and disposal through the lymphatic system.
Intradermotherapy or Mesotherapy is an injected form of treatment that includes inoculation by intradermal injection in the specific area being treated, for the purpose of concentrating the product where needed, extending the duration of permanence and therefore, of increasing the action of the specific pharmacological effect.
