However, it is recommended to take some measures:
- People who take medications that reduce blood clotting need to take a break between the course of treatment and mesotherapy (at least 2 weeks);
- For patients with increased capillary permeability and prone to the formation of hematomas, it is advisable to start taking Ascorutin or other means to strengthen the vascular wall;
- A few days before starting mesotherapy, you need to stop drinking alcohol and limit the amount of fatty and salty foods. This will help avoid swelling and other complications after injections.
During the preliminary consultation, you must inform the cosmetologist about existing chronic diseases, allergies to foods and medications.
What they can do and where they work
They are effective in areas of local fat accumulation that are difficult to correct. They are used mainly in areas of fat traps - in the area of the chin, knees, riding breeches, and lateral surfaces of the abdomen.
It is not advisable to treat large areas with lipolytics. The technique gives a more pronounced and faster result with an integrated approach, so it is rarely done as a single procedure, only if it is impossible to combine with hardware correction methods.
Remember that injections of lipolytics - special drugs for destroying fat cells - only fight local fat deposits and, as a rule, require an integrated approach.
Which procedures to combine with?
Additional methods allow you not only to speed up and obtain a more pronounced result of the main effect, but also to eliminate its consequences. After the destruction of fatty tissue, patients are faced with the fact that the skin becomes flabby and sagging. When drawing up a treatment plan, doctors evaluate skin turgor and prescribe a strengthening complex.
- Radio frequency lifting (RF-lifting);
- alter therapy (Ultherapy) is a microfocused ultrasound technique.
If we have a large area of fat deposits, for example, lipolytics are used in the abdomen, then it is justified to prescribe first a course of cryolipolysis, then lipolytics, and then, for example, a course of procedures using the Vela Shape device, which combines the effects of high-frequency current, infrared radiation, vacuum aspiration and massage rollers. This protocol provides faster and physiological weight loss.
How is the procedure done?
Lipolysis or the process of treating obesity using injections with a lipolytic drug includes several stages:
- Initial consultation and diagnosis. The doctor talks with the patient and measures volumes to collect anamnesis. The main goal is to collect as much detailed information as possible about the patient’s health status. This helps to identify possible contraindications at the initial stage, tell about the procedure and warn about the risks. At the first consultation, the goals of therapy and possible results are determined.
- Administration of the drug. The main stage includes the administration of subcutaneous injections. Injections are made into the problem area with a thin disposable needle.
- Rehabilitation therapy. To prevent skin irritation and side effects, a soothing cream is applied.
After the procedure, patients are advised to rest for half an hour. Also, to stimulate the process of breakdown and removal of fats from the body, you should drink at least 500 ml of clean water.
Let's be honest, these injections are quite painful. We studied reviews of injections for weight loss in the stomach and came to the conclusion that we will have to be patient. Of course, sometimes lidocaine is added to the syringe or the injection area is pre-treated with an anesthetic cream. Most often, this helps to avoid pain. The session itself lasts about 20 minutes. Up to three ampoules are used within one procedure - it all depends on the expected result and the skin surface being treated.
Nuances of carrying out
The specifics of a particular lipolytic drug determine the depth to which the injections will be performed (from 6 mm to 1.5 cm), how many procedures will be required, and whether recovery time will be needed.
To numb the skin puncture, we use local anesthetics. Some drugs add an anesthetic before injection to make the procedure comfortable. Injection cannulas are also used, which avoids several punctures and, accordingly, bruises.
For a pronounced result, it is necessary to carry out a course of 3 to 10 procedures with an interval of 10–14 days. The amount depends not only on the drug used, but also on the correction area and the amount of fat. Fat cells in the affected area die forever.
What determines whether the volume of fatty tissue will return?
- hormonal background.
Therefore, after lipotherapy, you should adhere to a certain lifestyle and diet so that the procedure is not useless.
Reviews with photos on lipolytics for weight loss
“No matter what diet I was on, the belly fat was not going to go away. I lost weight mainly in my legs and other parts of my body, but the hated fat did not come off from the sides. I already began to actively engage in sports, but still the result was not pleasing. I decided to undergo lipolysis. After consultation with a cosmetologist, 8 Dermastabilon procedures were prescribed. I noticed the effect after the second session, the fat began to slowly disappear. After all the treatment for my obesity, I finally had the outline of a normal belly and a slender body. The only thing I didn’t like was the pain after the injections. Bruises appeared at the injection site, but went away quite quickly. In total, during the entire course I lost 10 kg of excess weight.”
“I neglected myself, my weight and appearance. I tried to go on a diet, but I started having health problems, and I couldn’t play sports. My friends recommended lipolysis procedures. I contacted a cosmetology clinic; I had been looking for a suitable option with a good reputation for a long time. There I was prescribed injection procedures for the drug Revital Celluform. In addition to lipolytics, it also has other components for the skin. In 6 procedures I managed to get rid of fat in the abdominal area. In addition, the skin began to look much better. After the first injection, I was scared when inflammation appeared on the treated area, but the doctor calmed me down and said it was normal. I courageously endured all 6 sessions of painful injections and now I admire myself in the mirror - slim, as in my youth.”
“I was horrified when I saw cellulite on my thighs. It looked very bad, and I wanted to get rid of the unsightly crust as quickly as possible. An acquaintance, a very cool cosmetologist and weight loss specialist, recommended the MRX-lipolytic complex. I was initially afraid of injections, but here they also turned out to be painful. After the first procedure, I swore that I would never do this again. Then the injection site swelled, and I was completely in a panic. But after a few days everything went away, and the result appeared. I decided to have a few more sessions, and now I have thin, beautiful legs without a hint of cellulite. It’s worth being patient for such a good result.”
“For a long time I was looking for ways to lose weight, but the fat and cellulite on my thighs and buttocks kept growing and growing. I almost despaired until a friend advised me to try lipolytic injections. I started studying this topic and reviews with photos on lipolytics for weight loss. I made up my mind and performed several procedures in a specialized clinic. I can say that it probably feels like the most painful place where you can inject. We had several sessions, and at the end of the course there was nothing left of my cellulite. The legs and stomach became smooth and slender. I’m very pleased with the result, despite all the side effects and discomfort that occurred at the beginning of the therapy.”
“At my age it’s too late to play sports, and diets don’t give good results. In the area of the abdomen and hips, you can still somehow change something. But fat cheeks and a double chin are not going away. There is only one solution left - cosmetic procedures. I was advised to take a course of lipolytics, and I agreed almost immediately. At first I was tormented by doubts, and the side effects looked scary. But there was nowhere to go, I wanted to look good. I was given injections of the drug Aqualix. They say that it is most often used for problems in the facial area. He helped me great. Three months have passed, the double chin is not yet visible. The injections are, of course, painful, but beauty requires sacrifice, as they say. But there is certainly a result, and lipolytics are effective where even the strictest diets will no longer help.”
Reviews with photos of the abdomen before and after lipolytics for weight loss, as well as other problem areas, speak for themselves. Despite the fact that the procedure is not the most pleasant, many note positive results after several sessions. The main thing is to choose a qualified cosmetologist or a clinic with a good reputation.
Lipotherapy is an injection procedure, so after it, hematomas and swelling may appear. Adverse events and complications can only arise when working with direct lipolytics.
The main cause of complications is improper administration of the drug. They should be injected strictly into the subcutaneous fat, in small volumes.
The drug injected into other tissues, skin or muscles will cause tissue damage and destruction.
The second important point that must be taken into account when working with large volumes of direct lipolytics is the general condition of the body. There should be no acute liver diseases, since the fatty acids that come out of the destroyed cells will have to be utilized in it, which will create an additional burden.
Contraindications for use
Lipolitics should not be used if the following contraindications exist:
- Pregnancy and lactation;
- Allergy to the components of the drug;
- Oncological diseases (even those suffered in the past);
- Mental disorders;
- Infectious or viral diseases;
- Kidney and liver diseases;
To avoid complications, you must consult a specialist in advance. Before performing the procedure, the cosmetologist must know whether you have any contraindications.
Recommendations after the procedure (they must be followed)
- Fat loss procedures require drinking plenty of fluids. This is especially true for those who do not follow the drinking regime in everyday life.
- Lymphatic drainage techniques are welcome.
- If large volumes of work are carried out, physical activity is required. It is necessary to “spend” the released fatty acids to produce ATP (energy). If they are not utilized, the body will turn them back into fat deposits.
- In the first days after the procedure, you should avoid overheating, hypothermia, and drinking alcohol, so as not to slow down the process of removing waste products from the body.
In general, modern lipolytic drugs in the hands of a competent doctor are a safe means for correcting small fat deposits and harmonizing the overall appearance.
PHDC - a drug for mesotherapy liposuction
An attractive figure is the dream of every woman. However, not everyone succeeds in achieving it - some cannot restrain themselves in nutrition, while others - due to a sedentary lifestyle. In addition, the process of losing weight can be slowed down due to metabolic disorders, in which no restriction will help you lose extra pounds.
Aesthetic cosmetology actively uses lipolytic preparations in body care practice - judging by numerous reviews, they help correct problem areas and obtain the ideal silhouette.
Injections of lipolytics injected into subcutaneous fat accelerate the process of lipolysis and destroy fat pockets in the subcutaneous layer. Fat burning injections are a procedure often called non-surgical liposuction.
What are lipolytics
Lipolitics (“lipo” - fat) are special preparations based on natural ingredients for the correction of facial oval, figure and the breakdown of local fat deposits, which are injected into the subcutaneous adipose tissue using thin needles and trigger the destruction of adipocytes (fat cells) with subsequent removal of products disintegration with the blood and lymph flow.
Fat burning injections PHDC Mesopharm
PHDC Forte is an initial acronym made up of the words phosphatidylcholine and sodium deoxycholate. A new lipolytic mesopreparation from the Mesopharm company (Russia) with an improved formula of professional preparations based on high-tech components.
PHDC Forte is a lipolytic that works more selectively and at the same time softer, with an improved formula based on high-tech components. The action of PHDC Forte is based on lipolytic mechanisms that exist and work in the human body.
The main goal of mesotherapy with lipolytic drugs including phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) and deoxycholate is to reduce local fat deposits on the body/face, the so-called “fat traps” that are very difficult to remove using conventional methods (diet, spot exercise, etc.). In addition, lipolytics are positioned as an anti-cellulite agent.
PHDC Forte combines the best direct and indirect lipolytics, minimizing side effects from the use of deoxycholate while maintaining all the working properties (similar to PHDC). The unique composition of the lipolytic meso cocktail is designed not only to get rid of fat, but also to improve the condition of the skin and restore metabolism in the dermal tissues. Since the procedure stimulates collagenogenesis, the skin does not sag.
The purpose of the lipolytic drug is to reduce cellulite and local fat deposits.
The drug can effectively remove fat in the following places:
- face, chin;
- stomach, sides;
- gluteal region;
- knee area.
The drugs in this series are recommended for the treatment of cellulite, improving results after liposuction and plastic surgery (surgical facelift, abdominoplasty, etc.).
Use of lipolytic
PHDC Forte is used for lipolytic stage III-IV degree of lipodystrophy. The physiological method of implementation is mesotherapy.
The use of lipolytics is rarely done in one session (of course, not if the problem is not yet too pronounced). A course of 4 to 6 procedures: the cosmetologist will select the number based on the individual characteristics of the client, which are carried out once every 14 days. PHDC Forte is injected in single injections into problem areas to a depth of 10-13 mm. The volume of PHDC Forte for one procedure is no more than 10 ml.
To speed up the removal of waste and toxins, cosmetologists recommend lymphatic drainage massage. If you follow all the specialist’s recommendations after the procedures, the results will last for at least several years.
Lipolitics are not intended for general, but for local weight loss.
Lipolitics can improve facial contours or remove small fat deposits. However, they are not able to turn a plump woman into a slender woman.
The main advantages of PHDC Forte lipolytics
- restoration of metabolism and lipid metabolism;
- the ability to correct individual small areas, such as a double chin;
- lipotherapy can be combined with other weight loss methods;
- allow you to get rid of cellulite, reduce the fat layer by several centimeters, and improve the condition of the skin;
- with the help of lipolytics you can reduce the volume of the abdomen, remove folds on the sides, and outline the waist;
- minimal recovery period, no need to fall out of your usual life for a long time.
Like any invasive intervention, injections of lipolytic solutions have their contraindications.
PHDC Forte is not used during pregnancy, autoimmune diseases, liver diseases, biliary system diseases, diabetes mellitus.
An allergic reaction to the components of the administered drugs is also a contraindication to injection activities.
During a consultation with a cosmetologist, when collecting an anamnesis, it is unacceptable to hide facts about your state of health, chronic diseases and medications taken. This can lead to the fact that injections of lipolytics for weight loss will lead to undesirable consequences that are dangerous for the patient.
Composition of drugs
PHDC Mesopharm lipolytic preparations are distinguished by high quality, carefully selected ingredients and a balanced composition.
Composition and description of the components of the lipolytic mesococktail
- Organic silicon 1%
- Sodium deoxycholate
Non-direct acting lipolytics
❶ L-carnitine is a metabolic, stimulates the excretion of triglycerides, has a detoxifying effect. The main function of L-carnitine is the transport of fatty acids into mitochondria through membranes for their subsequent processing into energy (fat burning).
❷ Caffeine, an alkaloid obtained from tea leaves and coffee beans, helps accumulate cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), which improves the utilization of free fatty acids. Caffeine activates lipases in mitochondria.
❸ Silicon reduces reactive fibrosis of subcutaneous fat (SAT). Silicon is a structural component of connective tissue. It has a restoring, regenerating and moisturizing effect on tissues. Regulates the proliferation of fibroblasts, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Silicon reduces the degree of lipid peroxidation and has a lipolytic effect: it burns fat, activating lipase and enhancing the synthesis of adenylate cyclase and cyclic adenazine monophosphatase.
❹ Rutin belongs to the vitamin P group. Reduces venous hyperemia, increases the elasticity of the walls of blood vessels. Rutin is also an antioxidant.
❺ Sodium deoxycholate is a salt of bile acid, has direct lipolytic activity, has a destructive effect on adipocyte membranes and removes fat molecules from the cell. Sodium deoxycholate has another valuable property: it increases urination by blocking the reabsorption of sodium in the kidneys. Thanks to this, there is a significant reduction in the volume of intercellular fluid and suppression of processes leading to swelling of the tissues of the face and body.
❻ Phosphatidylcholine is the main phospholipid in all cell membranes; it is obtained from soy lecithin. Phosphatidylcholine carries out direct lipolysis: penetrating inside the fat cell, the drug transforms refractory fat into a liquid emulsion, which is easily removed from the body naturally.
PLC and experience in performing procedures
PFA or adipose tissue consists of lobules of fat, which are located in the interweaving of connective tissue fibers. Fat portions of the accumulation of fat cells - adipocytes. A vacuole is part of an adipocyte or fat sac of a cell.
In the methodological manuals of cosmetologists, two types of fat are distinguished:
The difference between the two types is determined by the appearance and tactile sensation of the cosmetologist.
— Soft fat contains large lobules of fat, connective tissue, and the vascular network are poorly expressed. Soft fat is relatively easily destroyed by lipolytics with good drainage.
“Dense fat, on the contrary, has a significant mass of connective fibers that compress fat vacuoles and the vascular network; cosmetologists wage a more difficult fight against this fat. Fibrosis of fat is accompanied by cellulite and in this case, it is corrected according to a separate program and only then lipolytics are added.
Injection areas fat traps
For each area of the body there are “favorite” places where fat deposits accumulate and its own mesotherapy technique.
✓ The longest work is carried out on the hips and buttocks. This area consists of hard fat and is often accompanied by cellulite. As a rule, hard fat is first softened, after signs of improvement in veno- and lymphatic flow, lipolytic drugs are added. If necessary, supportive procedures are used.
✓ The abdominal and lateral surface area mainly consists of soft fat without swelling and connective fibers are poor. Working with these areas begins immediately with lipolytics. The volume of fat deposits is reduced easily and quickly.
✓ The next area includes the face. Here, local fat deposits in the chin area, called the “double” chin, and “jowls” on the cheeks are corrected. The depth of the injections is 6–8 mm, less than on the body. The volume per procedure is no more than 5 ml of the drug. To restore the treated area, creams or gels are used for hematomas and swelling.
✓ In the shoulder girdle area, fat deposits on the shoulders and in the fatty “mound” in the area of the seventh cervical vertebra are corrected. The insertion depth is minimal – 6 mm. The volume of the drug per procedure is no more than 5 ml.
The interval between injection punctures should not be less than 20 mm. The entire area is processed according to this principle.
Recommendations for patients
The day before the injections, the patient should exclude:
- thermal effects (hot bath, sauna, steam bath, any type of tanning);
- excessive physical activity and sports;
- visiting swimming pools, water parks, i.e. places with chlorinated water.
It is recommended to drink at least two liters of clean drinking water daily throughout the course. Some of the water can be replaced with green tea. This drinking regime stimulates lymphatic drainage and diuresis.
After the introduction of a lipolytic solution into adipose tissue, an active process of splitting adipocytes begins. The fat burning effect continues for several days. Since the body requires time to completely remove lipid breakdown products, the aesthetic result can be finally assessed only 2-4 weeks after completion of the injection procedures.
After mesotherapy with lipolytic drugs, no other correction procedures are carried out for three days, this is the rule. The reverse order of procedures is appropriate, according to which massage is allowed before mesotherapy. For the correct combination of procedures, consult your cosmetologist.
According to aesthetic cosmetology specialists, a course of mesotherapy procedures with PHDC lipolytics allows one to achieve significant results in correcting the volume of problem areas. It is very important that the patient follows the recommendations and rules and then the desired effect will occur.
The method is minimally invasive
It does not require anesthesia or long-term rehabilitation.
For this reason, “slimness injections” are often called the lunch break procedure. Within 3-6 hours (rarely - 12 hours), a moderate burning sensation and sometimes a feeling of itching are noted in the area of lipolytic injections. Redness of the skin may occur within 12–24 hours, and moderate swelling in the injection area may persist for one to three days.
Possibility of correcting the most “stubborn” and delicate problem areas
You can remove fat deposits in the area of the inner shoulder, flanks on the back, pads above the knees and fat deposits associated with hormonal disorders (including the so-called widow's hump).
It is also possible to use lipolytics for the face - this will correct the swollen contour.
The effect is quite durable
Even if you recover, the “fat traps” will not return, because there are significantly fewer fat cells in this area.
Limitations on the volume of fat that can be destroyed
The reason is that the contents of fat cells are excreted by the liver.
Otherwise, serious intoxication may develop, manifested in a general deterioration in health: nausea, dizziness, indigestion, and even the appearance or aggravation of serious systemic diseases, primarily atherosclerosis. The settling of unresolved fat cells on the walls of blood vessels contributes to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.
If the administration technique is violated (the drug gets into the skin) and the dosage is exceeded, ulcers, inflammatory reactions, and skin unevenness may occur (as with classic liposuction).
Some patients may develop scars. As practice shows, complications mainly occur in people with large local fat deposits.
According to surgeons, when treating two symmetrical zones (for example, zones of breeches), a not very uniform effect is possible. One zone may turn out fuller, and another - thinner.
In older patients, sagging and sagging skin may appear in the thinned area. In this case, hardware cosmetology comes to the rescue.
