“I Feel Fat and Unattractive.”
A shapely body is everyone’s desire. No doubt that healthy diet and exercise are the keys to a supermodel body, but there are just some fat pads on our body that are extremely difficult to get rid of.
If you are worried about the surgical risk of liposuction, lipolysis injection which is minimally invasive, safe and with minimal downtime is there for you.
What is Mesolipolysis and How Does it Work?
Lipolysis injection simply means injecting a cocktail of vitamins, enzymes, hormones and plant extracts, particularly phosphatidylcholine, deoxycholic acid and levocarnitine into specific area of the body to achieve a fat burning effect.
These injections emulsify fat, increase fat cell metabolism and breaking down fat cell, which will eventually be excreted from our body.
When Will I See the Result?
The whole process will take up to 8 weeks to give the result and generally requires at least 4 sessions to achieve desirable result. The number of sessions depends the amount of fat that has to be removed.
Interestingly, some parts of fat pads like double chin and bra roll, are more sensitive towards the treatment than the others, and therefore requires relatively less sessions to achieve satisfactory result.
You may appreciate some result with each session, but the result is cumulative in nature and are best appreciated at the end of multiple treatment sessions and not in between. The key is to be patient and consistent!
Is it Painful?
The procedure is relatively comfortable with minimal pain as fine needle is used. Numb cream is applied before procedure to minimise any discomfort. You should expect some tenderness and swelling over the injected area for the next few days.
Is it Safe?
Clinical efficacy and safety of mesolipolysis injection have been established in many studies and it is FDA approved! Tracking back to the history, this formulation was used intravenously from early days to treat medical condition such as fat embolism and slowly advances into aesthetic world.
Is it Suitable for Me?
Here we need to set clear and proper expectation of the treatment outcome of mesolipolysis treatment. Mesolipolysis treatment is only effective towards subcutaneous fat, i.e. soft pinchable localized fat pad and is meant for body contouring rather than weight loss.
It is the best treatment for overweight/obesity is still proper diet and exercise!
Is There Any Side Effects? Will it Rebound After I Stop The Treatment?
Generally, mesolipolysis treatment is very well tolerable and side effects are rare. Once the fat cells are broken down by mesolipolysis treatment, they will be eliminated from our body and therefore it will not rebound even after stopping treatment, given that no extra calories is taken and cause new fat cells to grow.
Before & After of Mesolipolysis Treatment
In a nutshell, mesolipolysis is a good treatment option for individual who wish to get rid of stubborn fat as it is minimally invasive, less downtime and effective.
