How does it work?
Intralipotherapy is the process of dissolving fat in those difficult localised areas such as under the chin, stomach, back rolls, flanks, thighs, buttocks and around the knees. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid (we use Desoface and Desobody) which encourages the fat cells to degrade and drain away naturally through the lymphatic system.
What concerns does it address?
The best candidates for treatment are those with a medium body weight (BMI), slightly overweight with localised fat deposits. It is not a weight loss solution or a slimming aid.
How is it administered?
Using a thin cannula (non-sharp needle) placed under the skin through a single insertion point. The active ingredient can then be evenly delivered in a fan-like pattern across the whole area being treated. There may be localised swelling and redness in the treatment areas which are usually resolved in 3-4 days. Minor bruising, tenderness and sensitivity in the areas treated will generally resolve after 10-14 days.
How long before I see results?
Everyone is individual but usually between 2-3 weeks after treatment. A course of treatment is required for optimal fat reduction results. This is discussed with clients at the consultation stage to ensure that a bespoke treatment plan is created.
How long will the results last?
Results are permanent with a sensible lifestyle, as the fat cells are being destroyed.
