Fat Dissolving Injections

What are Fat Dissolving Injections?

Injection lipolysis, which is also called intralipotherapy, is a medical procedure that minimally invades the body to specifically reduce fat. Often referred to as injections that dissolve fat, intralipotherapy falls under the category of mesotherapy and serves as one of the nonsurgical alternatives for reducing fat.
Fat Dissolving Injections are a secure and efficient solution that effectively diminishes fat cells in the targeted region.

What can Fat Dissolving Injections Treat?

These injections can effectively address stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to reduce through exercise alone. These troublesome pockets can appear around various regions such as the chin, chest, underarms, bra area, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It greatly helps in body contouring but is not an effective solution for weight loss.
