Injection lipolysis chemically reduces the number of fat cells around the injection site. The chemical, called deoxycholic acid, results in fat cell disruption and death.
Which areas can be treated?
Lipolysis injections are especially effective in areas where smaller fat deposits collect. These problem zones usually affect the abdomen, hips, knees, upper arms or upper legs (saddlebags), and are often impossible to shift even with a healthy diet and exercise. Facial issues can also be alleviated (deep ‘puppet’ smile lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth, eye bags, double chin, hamster cheeks) making lipolysis treatment an invaluable aesthetic option.
