So-called injection lipolysis is another method which the doctors at HAUT- UND LASERZENTRUM AN DER OPER were the first to introduce in Germany. Our doctors coined the term “Fett-weg-Spritze” which has been adopted by their colleagues and the national press.
The origins of the lipodissolve injection can be traced back to Brazil. We have been using this method successfully in our medical office since 2000 as an alternative and an addition to liposuction. The active ingredient is derived from soy beans and was originally used to lower lipids and as a therapeutic agent against fat embolisms. Subsequently, the ingredient has been tested and approved in Germany for many years.
Another more gentle version of the lipodissolve injection is the injection lipolysis method known as Aqualyx. It uses dihydroxycholan acid, a bile acid which, just like the ingredient derived from soy beans, softens the fat cell’s membrane, dissolving fat from the inside.
The lipodissolve injection is applied several times with an interval of two to six weeks. Tiny needles are injected directly into the fatty tissue. After just a few weeks, the fat tissue dissolves and fat reduction is accelerated. Thanks to the special injection technique, the body is shaped according to the patient’s wishes and the fat cells of the treated area disappear.
To keep the side effects such as reddening, swelling and itching to a minimum, we administer carefully monitored doses at each session. An anesthetizing cream can be applied beforehand if required, which numbs the skin and makes the tiny injections virtually painless. As we dissolve the fat extremely carefully, several sessions are necessary. Injection lipolysis is a gentle, effective and long-term method for reducing fat. This method is best-suited to treating small, defined fat deposits for both men and women.
At HAUT- UND LASERZENTRUM AN DER OPER, we also apply injection lipolysis as part of an Advanced Cryolipolysis and Advanced Ultherapy treatment to achieve better results for our patients.
The lipodissolve injection originates from Brazil. The injection method dissolves stubborn fat deposits permanently and leads to a reduction in the existing problem areas. An active ingredient derived from soya beans is used. Alternatively, dihydroxycholanic acid, a bile acid, is used. The term “Aqualyx” therefore refers to a more gentle version of the lipodissolve injection, which also softens the fat cells’ membrane and dissolves the fat from within. The results are effective and lasting and are even better and more consistent than with conventional lipodissolve injections.
The lipodissolve injection is particularly suitable for defined, smaller fat deposits in men and women, which persist despite a balanced diet and regular exercise. Such problem zones are mainly found on the hips, lower abdomen, saddlebags, inner thighs, upper arms and knees. But fat deposits under the buttocks or around the male breast can also be successfully treated with the lipodissolve injection.
The lipodissolve injection is injected virtually painlessly into the fat deposit being treated using a blunt cannula of seven to ten centimetres in length. Thanks to the special injection technique, the body can be contoured in a very targeted way. An anaesthetic is not necessary. With very sensitive patients it is possible to mix the lipodissolve injection with a local anaesthetic.
A session only takes about 15 minutes. As we dissolve the fat very carefully, two to six treatments are necessary, at least 14 days apart.
We only administer precisely controlled amounts of active ingredients per session to keep the side effects to a minimum. Nevertheless, slight redness, swelling and itching may occur in individual cases. The skin may also be a little sensitive to pressure for a few days.
We advise not to apply any cosmetics to the treated area for about twelve hours. Exercise and exposure to extreme heat (sauna, solarium, steam bath) should also be avoided for three days.
The lipodissolve syringe can be used to permanently melt the fat deposits. However, a bit of patience is required before the effect is visible. The result is visible three to four weeks after the last injection.
The active ingredient extracted from soya beans was originally used as a lipid reducer and therapeutic agent against fat embolisms. For this reason, it has been tested and approved in Germany for many years.
Yes. We use the lipodissolve injection at the HAUT- UND LASERZETRUM AN DER OPER, for example, to supplement cryolipolysis or the Ultherapy procedure.
No, unfortunately not. The lipodissolve injection is more intended for the smallest, extremely persistent fat deposits, the size of your palm at most, and not for extensive areas.
Basically, yes. However, it should be noted that the degree of efficiency may differ. This can be regulated by the number of treatments though.
No, the injection is not painful. Usually just a slight burning sensation is felt and in some cases a feeling of pressure at the injection sites.
We do not treat pregnant women as a matter of principle. Diabetics should also refrain from this treatment. We also advise patients who want to reduce fatty tissue over a large area against lipodissolve injections. In this case classic liposuction is a more suitable alternative.
