Lipolysis

Lipolysis is a medical procedure of melting and removing unwanted fatty deposits on the body. This procedure can change the shape of our bodies and faces.

Which parts of the body are the most common for lipolysis application?

Lipolysis is commonly used on parts of the body that can’t be adequately shaped with persistent trainings or diet. Usually those are thighs, buttocks, hips, stomach and chin.

What subtances are used during the treatment?

Substances used for lipolysis treatment are 5% Phosphatidylcholine and Deoxycholate, enzymes that are in use for several years now, applied intravenously to incite liver to clean the blood from the fats, and to prevent fat embolism. During application, active substances lead to cracking of the membranes of fat cells in the treated zone and to outpouring of their content into the surrounding tissue. From there, in a natural way, via the bloodstream, the fat is transported to the liver and gets thrown out of our organism. It is necessary to emphasize that this procedure doesn’t change the level of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.

How long is the lipolysis treatment in use?

The listed active substances are used in aesthetic medicine for reshaping the body and the face with great success since 1995.

What does a lipolysis treatment look like?

A lipolysis treatment consists of lipolytic (phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate) application with microinjections directly into the fatty tissue of the treated region. The procedure of the lipolytic application itself is painless but after 15 minutes of the application a sense of itching, redness and swelling of the treated region appears. After two hours redness and pain disappear and the swelling can last up to two weeks after the treatment. In the next 6 to 8 weeks there is some sensitivity when the treated fatty tissue is pressed. The treatment effect is observed one month after the application and the final effect comes after two months.

How long does the lipolysis treatment last?

Lipolysis treatment lasts from 20 to 30 minutes and enables the continuation of the usual daily activities right after the intervention.

Is there an advantage to lipolysis compared to liposuction?

Yes. The advantage of lipolysis compared to liposuction is that bumps and fibrosis can’t appear on the treated parts of the body, if the lipolytic is adequately applied.

How many treatments are required?

One region is treated with 3 to 4 treatments until the wanted effect is achieved. The process of fatty cells breakdown is slow and the lipolytic affects the skin in such a way that makes it more firm and doesn’t allow an excess of skin to appear after the fat loss. Depending on the amount of fatty tissue on the  patient’s body, sometimes only one treatment is enough.

 

Are there any complications during or after the treatment?

During the treatment bruises may occur and that’s why it is advised to pause with taking substances that dilute the blood, like Andol, Acetisal, Ginkgo biloba, Vitamin E. An occurrence of painful nodules is usual and transient and it is a consequence of an inflammatory process that develops when fat is dissolved.

Three days after the treatment, massages and the usual exercises may begin. It is recommended to drink from 1.5 to 2 liters of fluids a day.

 

Is the lipolysis treatment permenent?

The effect is permanent in persons who do not gain weight again. There is a loss of 1 to 10 cm in volume depending on the treated region. About 6% of the population doesn’t adequately react to phosphatidylcholine and so in these patients the effect is reduced.

For persons allergic to soy and vitamin B, lipolysis treatments are not recommended.

 

Mesotherapy

NON- SURGICAL  , NO DOWNTIME, NO RECOVERY TIME 

 

Mesotherapy is the practice of injecting pharmaceutical grade vitamins ,enzymes,homeopathic and traditional medication into the mesoderm the second layer of skin. The medication is injected exactly where the person needs treatment to deliver rapid results.

Mesotherapy has a variety of applications and is used to treat many conditions both cosmetic and therapeutic.
Mesotherapy has an enviable track record ,its a preventative and curative modality.

It's being chosen over surgery and oral medication  because of the low risk and low cost. There is no down time or with Mesotherapy.  Some of the conditions treated with Mesotherapy include:

 

Fat Deposits                                 Chronic Pain   
Cellulite                                       Muscle spasms                                     
Acne                                            Arthritis (all forms)
Wrinkles                                      Insomnia/Anxiety
Stretch Marks                              Sports injuries
Thinning Hair                              Scar tissue/excess collagen 

Mesotherapy  is not a  painful procedure due to extremely small needles that are used , the injections are not deep they only penetrate the mesoderm, the sensation is more like a prick with minimal discomfort. A topical anesthetic cream can be applied for those with sensitive skin prior to injection, while liposuction often results in some pain after the surgery, as well as during the healing weeks that follow.
 
 
 Mesotherapy causes  no scarring although minor swelling and light bruising may appear in the area for a few days; liposuction can cause scarring ranging from moderate to severe.
 
 
Sedation is not necessary with mesotherapy, and the patient can walk out of the office a few moments after the treatment.
The following outline is a standard estimate of what each mesotherapy treatment entails
(the number of injections and amount of medication varies from patient to patient):
 
 
Fat Reduction/ Body sculpting:Usually 4 to 7 treatments (injections) are required at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks. Depending on the problem area, the number of procedures could increase. Because mesotherapy treatments are not for weight loss, it is generally recommended for patients who require a little fat reduction in specific areas, as with body contouring. A person with a body mass index of 30% or less is the typical candidate for this procedure.
 A soy based nutrient called phosphatidylcholine is injected into the localized fatty
deposits to break down the fat cells layer by layer with each treatment.
 
Cellulite Reduction:Approximately  4 to 10 treatments are necessary at intervals of  2 to 4 weeks. Mesotherapy for cellulite is more successful than topical creams, and treatments like endermologie. It is successful in dealing with mild to moderate degrees of cellulite.
 
 
Facial Rejuvenation: 4 to 8 treatments are required at 2 to 4 week intervals. It is one of the most popular mesotherapy treatments, as satisfied patients notice a substantial improvement in their facial appearance.Our fat reduction treatments are excellent for shrinking double chins and tightening sagging jowls. 
 
 
Hair Regrowth/Rejuvenation: 3 to 10 treatments are required at intervals of 1 to 3 weeks. This treatment is great for anyone one that is balding or has thinning hair due to a variety of reasons. The actual vitamins that are the building blocks for your hair are injected into the scalp.
