What is intralipotherapy?
It is a removal of unwanted fat deposits by using a special solution called Deoxycholic Acid at the clinic we use DESOBODY, which is injected into the fatty areas of the body or face using a needle or cannula.
After the injection the cell wall of the fat cell is damaged and it withers away releasing the fat acid which is then ejected from the body through urine.
After marking the areas of unwanted fat deposits when in a standing position, the skin is disinfected and I inject the solution by a cannula directly into the fat tissue.
Other methods used for cellulite treatment only affect the superficial layer of fat and cannot penetrate the deeper layers of fat within the tissue.
With intralipotherapy the solution is placed directly in all layers of the fat tissue and thus fat tissue is destroyed more thoroughly.
Is the treatment painful?
Because of using needles and the length of the cannula used there may be some discomfort, however local anaesthetic is used to make you as comfortable as possible.
To whom do we recommend the treatment?
The treatment is recommended to people who wish to rid themselves of unwanted fat deposits.
This is not a weight loss treatment however, nor a skin tightening treatment but a volume reduction treatment which dissolves fat deposits.
Weight loss can be carried out along with the treatment if necessary and advice is available.
Which body parts can be treated?
- Double Chin
- Upper arms
- Inner side of the knee or Thigh
Can cellulite be treated as well?
The treatment is not intended for cellulite removal but an excellent cellulite reduction effect has been noted.
How many treatments are needed and in what intervals?
2-5 treatments are recommended in average, depending on the region and the amount of fat tissue although minor deviations are possible. It is not possible to predict the exact number of treatments. The interval between the treatments is 2-3 weeks. If we are dealing with smaller areas sometimes 1 treatment may be enough, but cannot be guaranteed.
When are the results visible?
According to the manufacturer initial results are usually visible after the second treatment although minor changes can be visible immediately after the first treatment if a smaller area. It is necessary to take into account individual reactions.
What are the side effects?
Redness, haematoma (bruising), sensitivity and swelling of the treated part are all possible.
In order to prevent swelling, respectively improve the results, a lymphatic drainage or support garments are advised after the treatment although it is not necessary.
Is there anyone unsuitable for this treatment?
It is unsafe for anyone who is:
- pregnant or breastfeeding
- has an autoimmune disease
- has any liver conditions
- or are under anti coagulation therapy
