The injection of Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) to reduce fatty deposits.
It is now possible with Injection Lipolysis Therapy to dissolve the smaller fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, non surgically and permanently.
What is Lipolysis?
Lipolysis is a non surgical injection therapy that removes fatty deposits that are resistant to diet or exercise. It is not a method of weight loss but rather a treatment for body sculpting or contouring. Many people have a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly but have soft fat in areas that are impossible to target for example, the neck area under the chin, inner thighs or love handles.
How does Lipolysis work?
Lipolysis is a non surgical injection therapy. PPC (Phosphatidylcholine- a liquid lecithin product produced from soy beans) is used to inject the superficial fat layer. This substance causes the fat cell walls to dissolve, the fat is then eliminated by the body’s metabolic process. By reducing the number of fat cells in the area the amount of fat stored in the area is reduced.PPC is a safe substance that has been used therapeutically for over 15 years originally for intravenous treatment of cholesterol level disorders.
What areas are especially suited for Lipolysis?
The localized areas of soft fat not targeted by diet and exercise such as the double chin, jowls, upper arm, the inside of the thighs, hip pads (love handles), the back (saddle bags), knees and abdominal area. Lipolysis in Perth is ideal for treating these smaller clearly defined areas of fat.
How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments depends on your body’s individual response to the treatment, generally, 2-4 treatments at 6-8 week intervals are ideal. Results are not immediate but are evident after 10 weeks. If you would like multiple areas treated, we recommend treating one area at a time. Many patients have confirmed that the slower rate of change they experience is positive as they are not confronted with the psychological effects of abrupt change in their physical appearance.
What can I expect during treatment?
The needles used are very fine so as to minimize discomfort. Immediately after the injection the area becomes warm, red and an uncomfortable prickling sensation is experienced. The level of discomfort can range from mild to intense depending on each individual’s response. This ache can last for minutes or a few hours. Swelling begins almost immediately after the treatment and is a normal response. Tenderness, swelling and a general numbness in the area can last a few days. Some bruising can also occur. All of these are normal responses following this procedure. Complicated pre- or post-treatment is unnecessary and the ability to work is not impaired. Clients can return to their daily duties after treatment, without the need of special clothing or apparatus.
Are the results permanent?
According to the current state of knowledge, fat cells that have been dissolved do not return. This means that the fat deposits concerned are permanently reduced. Provided your weight remains the same and a positive lifestyle is maintained the results of lipolysis should also remain the same.
Who is not suitable for Lipolysis?
Lipolysis is NOT suitable for:
- those allergic to B group vitamins or soy beans
- those on warfarin
- pregnant or breastfeeding
- those with poor liver function
- certain auto-immune diseases such as dermatomyositis scleroderma,SLE
How much does it cost?
A consultation with Dr Narulla will determine the cost as it depends on the number of areas to be treated.
