FAT LOSS WITH A HELP OF LIPOTHERAPY INJECTIONS OR LIPOSUCTION?
Today, there are many different ways to lose weight. Many of them require exhausting exercises in the gym and/or strict diets, the effect of which is not always obvious and lasting. In such moments, words “liposuction” and “lipotherapy” start popping into our minds.
What is hidden behind the words “liposuction” and “lipotherapy”? Lipo meaning fat. And this is the only similarity.
Lipotherapy is a non-surgical treatment, which doesn't require general anesthesia or of time for recovery.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, which requires using general anesthesia. It is associated with multiple risks.
As you can see, these two procedures are significantly different. Obviously, the first options seems safer. In addition, cost of lipotherapy is significantly lower than the cost of liposuction. This is why the majority of people choose the former, rather than the latter.
Lipotherapy is perfect for those of us, who are concerned with their persisting fat deposits. Series of microinjections is performed into the subcutaneous fat. To do this, doctors can use special lipotherapy machines.
Fat cells are destroyed in localized areas of the body. After that, the lymphatic system quickly absorbs fats.
SUBSTANCES USED FOR LIPOTHERAPY INJECTIONS
Lipotherapy should not be confused with mesotherapy, where cosmetic dermal fillers are usually used. Such fillers often contain Hyaluronic Acid (hyaluronan), which remains under the skin for a long time.
EFFECTIVENESS OF LIPOTHERAPY INJECTIONS
Lipotherapy is performed in various body parts, including those, in which it is very difficult to get rid of fat. The treatment shows good results in such areas, as chin, upper arms, stomach, inner side of knees, thighs, hips and so forth.
Treatment has shown excellent results for smoothing out and even removing cellulite. In contrast, liposuction is not intended for the treatment of cellulite, and may even make it more noticeable.
Effectiveness of lipotherapy may depend on the number of treatments performed, the location of fat deposits and their size.
Therefore, you can immediately notice the results, as well as before and after difference. To achieve the full effect, you need to complete the entire treatment course.
During and after the procedure, you may feel discomfort, burning and slight swelling. Such side effects of lipotherapy are usually mild and short-term.
RESULTS & CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR LIPOTHERAPY INJECTIONS
Each body is different, so individual responses to treatment will differ. However, most people experience inches of fat loss in the treated areas.
Before you start the treatment, make sure that lipotherapy is not contraindicated to you. This treatment is not recommended for pregnant women, those who take blood-thinning medication or suffer from cardiac problems, diabetes or HIV.
An ideal candidate for non-surgical fat elimination is a person aged 18 or more, who exercises on a regular basis and is in good health. If your fat deposits are not very large, the results will be very noticeable, and vice versa.
Just as dermal filler injections, lipotherapy injections are often referred to as a “lunchtime treatment”, because it is an outpatient procedure, meaning you can normally leave within 15 to 30 minutes of undergoing it.
