Liposolve micro-injections are a physician-administered treatment that uses an organic human compound to gently dissolve fat cells anywhere in the body without the surgical trauma of liposuction surgery. Common treatment areas include under the eyes, abdomen, thighs, necks, jowls, and- of course- those ever-pesky love handles. Best of all, there’s no recovery time and the fat cells are gone forever. Three to four treatments are usually scheduled at intervals. This “time lapse” method provides many advantages during the course of treatment to achieve optimal results.
Liposolve micro-injections are a form of mesotherapy designed for body sculpting. Mesotherapy was originally developed in France in the 50’s with the objective of delivering medicines directly to the treatment area. There are currently more than 15,000 European and South American physicians practicing mesotherapy for a variety of conditions.
Liposolve got its start from an unusual direction for cosmetic treatment. A life-saving treatment designed to dissolve fat that had been released into the bloodstream and caused a blockage of the arteries in the lungs and brain. The forerunner to Liposolve was injected directly into the blood stream to dissolve these fat emboli. Surface adapted and refined this treatment to dissolve fat cells anywhere in the body.
Liposolve works by disrupting the cell wall of Lipocytes (fat cells) at the injection site. Disrupting the cell wall kills the cell and releases the cells contents into the bloodstream where it is excreted harmlessly in the urine. (To prevent the body from reabsorbing the fat, patients are instructed to reduce their caloric intake by around 500 calories a day.) The destroyed fat cells are gone forever. The patient experiences some tenderness and swelling that disappears after a few days.
