About Injection Lipolysis
Injection lipolysis is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to target and reduce localized fat deposits. It involves injecting a solution into the targeted area, which works to break down and eliminate fat cells.
Commonly asked questions about Injection Lipolysis
Before undertaking any procedure, you will want to be confident in your knowledge. Find the details on Injection Lipolysis here.
1. What is injection lipolysis?
Injection lipolysis is an advanced technique that effectively targets stubborn fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Fat-dissolving injections (injection lipolysis) can effectively eliminate the fat from stubborn areas of the body by breaking down and eliminating fat cells under the skin.
2. How does injection lipolysis work?
A specialized solution is injected into the targeted fat deposits, which breaks down the fat cells. The body’s natural processes then eliminate these broken-down fat cells over time.
3. What areas can I treat with injection lipolysis?
Injection Lipolysis is primarily used for targeting and reducing fat cells in specific areas of the body. The most common areas that can be treated with Injection Lipolysis include:
- Underneath the Chin (Double Chin)
- Face and Chin
- Upper Arms
- Flanks (Love Handles)
- Knee Area
4. Am I a good candidate for injection lipolysis?
Ideal candidates for injection lipolysis are individuals with stubborn, localized fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Injection lipolysis treatments are not a substitute for diet and exercise, nor are they a fat-loss solution for individuals who are excessively overweight.
5. How is injection lipolysis performed?
Before injection lipolysis, a local anesthetic is often applied to the treatment area to ensure minimal discomfort. Using fine needles, a pharmaceutical solution is injected into the targeted fat deposits. Over approximately two weeks, the fat breaks down and is gradually absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system. This procedure typically takes less than an hour.
6. What is recovery like after injection lipolysis?
After injection lipolysis, mild swelling and bruising at the injection sites can occur for a few days. Some warmth and discomfort are normal in the treated area immediately post-treatment, with potential redness, stinging, or itching. While normal activities can be resumed right after treatment, strenuous activities should be avoided for a few days.
7. How soon will I see results?
Results can become noticeable within two to a few weeks as the body eliminates the treated fat cells. However, studies indicate that multiple sessions may be required for optimal results. Additional treatments are carried out for areas with larger fatty deposits in order to achieve the desired outcome.
8. How long do results last?
The fat loss achieved through injection lipolysis is generally long-lasting. Combining proper exercise and diet with treatments can lead to extended results. However, new weight gain can lead to the accumulation of fat in treated areas over time.
9. How much does injection lipolysis cost in Canada?
The cost of injection lipolysis varies based on factors like the treatment area, the number of sessions needed, and geographic location. In Canada, the cost of injection lipolysis can range from approximately $550 to $1,500 per session.
10. What are the risks of injection lipolysis?
While considered generally safe, injection lipolysis can have potential risks, including:
- Uneven results
