Injection lipolysis is a relatively new, popular treatment that we offer at City Clinic. Essentially a fat removal treatment through lipolysis, it provides a solution for those unwanted and difficult-to-shift fat deposits that cause patients distress. Diet does not always improve these stubborn areas, but these injections can improve these problem areas. It is always advised that patients maintain a good exercise regime and healthy diet for longer-lasting results.
What is injection lipolysis?
Lipolysis solutions is a specially-formulated compound which is introduced to the problem area, via injection. It attaches to fatty deposits and works to break them down over time. The body flushes out the solution and the dissolved fat naturally, over time.
After the treatment the treated area will look smaller, with less fat build-up. Please note that it may take up to three weeks for you to notice the full impact. The treatment uses a special formula to break down fat cells in the affected area, and your body works to flush out the fatty acids itself; therefore, depending on your own body, the process may take a short while, or a longer period of time.
What areas can be treated?
Small deposits of fat can be treated with injections. The most common treatment areas are the tummy, thighs, arms (bicep area) and the chin.
How many sessions will I need?
On average, our patients will have 1-6 sessions to see the desired result. It is advised that patients have treatment every 4-8 weeks.
Am I a suitable candidate?
Injections can be used on a wide range of patient types. It is primarily used for small pockets of fat, not for larger areas.
