Fat Dissolving Shots

PCDC Lipodissolve

When it comes to stubborn fat pockets,  lipodissolve treatments can assist by reducing fat cells in those areas. 

Also called Lipolysis, this involves injecting fa at dissolving  medication such as Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) micro-injections which are injected locally into the targeted treatment areas. The fat cells absorb 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.

How is lipoDissolve performed?

During the lipodissolve procedure, your doctor injects the cocktail into the fat layers and connective tissue. The injection is relatively painless, with no need for anesthesia.  The medication produces a chemical reaction to dissolve localized areas of fat.  Typically, benefits are seen within three weeks of the treatment. Several treatments, four to six weeks apart, are often required to produce the maximum result.  Lipodissolve injections are not meant to replace healthy diet and exercise however, they are purported to reduce excess fat in small, localized areas of the body.

  • Chin

  • Inner and outer thighs

  • love handles

  • Upper and lower back

  • Abdomen

  • Jowls

  • Back of arms
