Lipodissolve treatment involves the removal of fat using chemical injections. The needle used in the lipodissolve treatment is very fine, about the size of an acupuncture needle. Once the lipodissolve treatment is injected into the targeted fat deposit, the fat molecules are dissolved, causing the fat to change from solid to liquid.
The body will then naturally flush the fat out of the body over the next few weeks to months. Most patients observe improvement in their treated areas after about four weeks. Multiple treatments are often needed for optimal results with treatment sessions spaced between six to eight weeks apart.
Lipodissolve is often used to diminish the appearance of a double chin, jowls, and even lipomas.
Lipodissolve treatment is not effective in the treatment of large fat deposits which require a different path of treatment such as one of our safe and minimally invasive liposuction procedures.
