Fat Dissolving Injections

Lipotherapy - Dissolving fat by injection

Lipotherapy using small injections of a drug called Phosphatidylcholine has now become a popular method for reducing fat in areas such as the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, love handles and arms. It can also be used for facial contouring in areas where there is unwanted fat such as under the chin and jawline.

What is being injected?

Phosphatidylcholine is a natural bile product derived from the Soya bean. In tablet form it enhances the body’s ability to reduce unwanted fat levels. Further research has seen the intravenous form used as a way of treating fat deposits within the vascular system. Clinical trials as far back 1996 showed that injections placed under the skin had a dissolving effect on fat. The use of lipotherapy for the removal of fat has been adopted widely throughout Europe with much of the lead research being conducted in Germany. The overwhelming conclusion of this work is that the treatment is safe, effective and permanent.

What are the benefits?

This is a highly effective, non-surgical treatment for fat reduction in targeted areas that are resistant to weightloss or exercise.
