Injection lipolysis – what is it?
Injection lipolysis, also called intralipotherapy, is a modern, non-surgical method of removing local body fat. It allows for precise modeling of the body by removing excess fat in areas where it is difficult to get rid of it with diet or physical activity.
Injection lipolysis – the principle of action
Injection lipolysis allows the membrane to dissolve the fat cells, resulting in degradation and then being transported to the liver and excreted from the body. The preparation used in injection lipolysis is precisely injected directly into the area with excessive adipose tissue, causing the intentional and controlled inflammation within it.
Injection lipolysis – possible side effects
The normal side effect of injectable lipolysis may be bruising, swelling, and subtle pain in the area undergoing surgery that disappears within a few days.
When to apply?
Injection lipolysis is a procedure that can not be performed on any part of the body. It is only used in the following locations:
- Double chin (jaw contour modeling)
- Around the neck,
- Upper limbs
- Arms around triceps
- Abdomen and abdomen
- Hips “love handles”
- Hips, “breeches”
- Inner thigh
- The inside of the knees
- Folds on the back (so called bumps)
- Gynecomastia for men
Number and frequency of treatments
When injecting lipolysis, too much preparation can not be given at once, so the procedure should be performed in stages. The amount of preparation used in one treatment varies and depends mainly on the patient’s expectations, but also on the amount of fat stored there.
Necessary for injection lipolysis, the amount of product is determined each time during individual consultation before the procedure. For a visible and lasting effect, it is usually necessary to perform 2 to 6 lipolysis treatments at intervals of 3-6 weeks. Already after about 3 weeks after each procedure you can feel and see a significant decrease in body fat, to the extent that most patients are happy with the effects after 2-3 sessions.
Contraindications for lipolysis
The medical contraindications for injection lipolysis are:
- Liver disease,
- Cardiological diseases,
- Blood clotting disorder and skin disease.
- Pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Active substances used for injection lipolysis
Phosphatidylcholine – liquid lecithin
Phosphatidylcholine, originally used in medicine, mainly to protect the liver and reduce blood fat content since the mid-1990s, has also found use in cosmetology when Patricia Rittes, a French doctor of dermatology, first applied lipolysis in 1995, based on The assumption that redundant fat can be dissolved by injection.
Lipid injection with phosphatidylcholine based on a 2002 study by the European Network-Lypolisis Research Group was found to be completely safe. Phosphatidylcholine easily penetrates the cell membranes into the fat cells, leading to the breakdown of their structure and the breakdown of triglycerides. Then the substance is transported to the liver, where the fats are broken down, and then they are naturally excreted from the body. Phosphatidylcholine has been used in thousands of treatments around the world without the risk of overdose, and the end effect of injectable lipolysis with its use can be described as astounding.
If not phosphatidylcholine, will help Aqualyx
For injectable lipolysis, Aqalyx is often used, for example: Motolese solution or “M solution” being a modern injection preparation approved as a medical device.
The mandatory insertion technique for Aqualyx involves the injection of a fatty tissue with a special needle – from one or possibly two puncture sites. This means that the patient is pinched 2 – 4 times during surgery. This eliminates the risk of complications that are quite common during other body modeling procedures.
