What is lipolysis injection?
Lipolysis injection is a treatment that which, through the injection of a special active ingredient, causes fat to melt away in specific areas of the body.
Who is suitable for the lipolysis injections?
Lipolysis injection is used to melt away circumscribed, smaller fat depots that cannot be removed by either changing your diet or exercising. Lipolysis injections are not used for weight loss.
How does the lipolysis injection treatment work?
The drug is injected directly into the fatty tissue by using the finest needles. The melting process reaches its peak after 4 to 6 weeks. The injections by the attending physician induce a slight inflammatory reaction, which leads to an additional tightening of the skin. The fat disappears and the skin tightens over it.
Which regions are suitable for a lipolysis treatment?
Upper / Lower abdomen
Gynecomastia in men
Accumulation of fat under the axilla
Fat pad above the knee
How many treatments are necessary?
2 to 4 treatments are necessary to achieve the best possible results.
What does a treatment cost?
Depending on the size of the area, the lipolysis treatment costs from 200 euros.
Does the lipolysis treatment work equally for every patient?
Like any other treatment, the effect of the therapy can't be precisely.predicted. The success of the treatment depends very much on the consistency of the treated fat pads. About 80% of the treated patients are very satisfied with the treatment.
A small proportion of the patients (approx. 5%) showed little to no reaction. The NETWORK doctors are currently investigating why this is so.
