What is Lipodissolve?
Lipodissolve is an innovative alternative to liposuction that involves a series of micro-injections that dissolve unwanted areas of fat. The injection consists of a mixture of phosphatidylcholine (PPC) and deoxcholate (DC), which are substances that occur naturally in the human body.
How does Lipodissolve work?
Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) micro-injections are delivered into the targeted treatment areas. The fat cells adsorb the PCDC and become slightly inflamed and then harden. The hardened fat cells break down within a few weeks and are eliminated via the body's natural processes.
What is PCDC?
Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) is a naturally occurring substance within the body that comprises up to 60% of cell membranes., facilitates cell membrane transport, and is a component in bile that is responsible for emulsifying the fat we consume in our diet for absorption. The PPC used in most injectable fat reducing formulas is derived from soybean lecithin. Deoxycholate, present in the body as sodium deoxycholate, is a bile salt that functions to make PPC soluble in water. It acts as a detergent and also aids in the breakdown of fat consumed in our diet.
What body parts can be treated and how often?
Areas that can be treated with Lipodissolve include the inner and outer thights, buttocks and love handles, back of the arms, the upper and lower abdomen, the chin and jowels, knees, and upper and lower back.
