Injection Lipolysis is a procedure where a substance is injected directly into undesired fat deposits. This active substance is a natural compound made from soybean along with an enzyme for breaking down fat. The body uses these substances especially in the field of fat metabolism.
Lipolysis injections initiate a process during which fat is dissolved and then eliminated from the body via the metabolic process. Areas that can be treated by lipolysis include double chin, jowls and other areas which are usually fairly small and localized. Larger areas are better treated with procedures such as CoolSculpting™.
As a rule 2-4 treatments in intervals of 8 weeks are necessary to finish the therapy with success, depending on the size of the fat deposit.
Some temporary side-effects after treatment include: redness, swelling, bruising and muscle ache-like discomfort.
