WHO CAN HAVE LIPODISSOLVE?
Generally, most healthy adults may undergo lipodissolve for body sculpting and weight loss, cellulite treatment, and mesolift skin rejuvenation. It is important for you to fully discuss your medical history and current medication with your doctor. Patients who are immuno-compromised or who suffer from cardiac arrhythmias, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension or bleeding disorders should not have lipodissolve. Medications such as aspirin, blood thinners and some supplements can increase bleeding and bruising. Pregnant and nursing mothers should wait till they have completed breast-feeding before starting treatment.
WHAT ABOUT SAFETY OF LIPODISSOLVE?
Safety is excellent. Lipodissolve or Mesotherapy, as it is known in Europe, is one of the safest cosmetic procedures. The treatment has been used in Europe since 1922 and is now one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the world. Lipodissolve can be used in smaller, more specific areas than liposuction, and is frequently used to correct uneven lumpiness sustained from previous liposuction.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The most frequent side effect is localized bruising and swelling, which resolves over approximately one week.
ARE THE TREATMENTS PAINFUL?
No. Well, hardly any. We use a state-of-the-art, gas-propelled injecting gun to deliver the medication in the fastest and most precise fashion possible. Patients feel little discomfort, even without any analgesia.
WHEN CAN I RESUME MY NORMAL ACTIVITIES?
You can resume normal activity as usual. There are no special requirements after this procedure. You may continue to experience some mild discomfort and swelling after the treatment, but such feelings are normal for 1-3 days.
WHAT SHOULD I AVOID AFTER TREATMENT?
Avoid heat, saunas and heavy exercise for 48 hours.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The Lipodissolve procedure takes between 15min to 1 hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I REQUIRE?
The number of treatments differs from person to person, depending upon body region and body size. Generally, 5-15 treatments are required to achieve optimal results.
HOW FAST WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results vary according to the severity of the cellulite or fat pockets, your body type and treatment goals. Patients often report seeing changes within two to three sessions. Clients with regular exercise programs tend to achieve optimal results faster.
WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Yes, Lipodissolve is a permanent solution for bodysculpting, cellulite and spot fat reduction. However, maintaining your weight loss and optimal sculpting result requires consistent exercise and food management discipline. Patients may elect to have touch up treatments from time-to-time.
