WHAT IS LIPODISSOLVE?

Lipolysis fat dissolving injections reduce small and stubborn fat pockets for a smoother look. Lipodissolve is often described as ‘non-surgical liposuction’ because it effectively reduces fat without surgery or downtime.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES LIPOLYSIS WORK?

The treatment involves a series of small injections of the substance phosphatidylcholine (PC) directly into unwanted fat pockets. Once injected, the active ingredient causes fat cells to rupture. The fat cells then die and are metabolised. You will begin to notice a reduction of fat as the body continues to process the dead fat cells.*

WHO CAN HAVE LIPOLYSIS?

Ideal candidates typically have small fatty pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. Lipolysis is particularly appealing to patients who don’t want to have surgery. Lipolysis is suitable for many people and is even used to smooth post liposuction irregularities.

Consult with your Artisan Doctor to see if this treatment is right for you.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Often 1-3 treatments are needed to achieve your desired effect. Consult with your Artisan Doctor to receive a tailored treatment plan.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TREATMENT? IS THERE DOWN TIME?

Down time is minimal so you are able to return to your normal activities straight after treatment. However many patients will experience temporary side effects like swelling, redness, sensitivity & bruising. These are all normal reactions and will usually subside after a few days.

Your Artisan clinician will provide you with full details of side effects and benefits of treatment upon consultation.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Most clients begin to notice an improvement 4 weeks after the initial treatment. However, the most noticeable difference in fat reduction occurs from 4-8 weeks after the initial treatment. Your body takes time to remove dissolved fat, so you may continue to see improvements for up to 12 weeks.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?

We usually allow 30-45 minutes for your appointment however the treatment itself is over within minutes.

WHO WILL DO MY TREATMENT?

As with all medical procedures, your results will depend on the experience of the person doing your treatment. At Artisan a qualified clinician will perform your treatment. Our injectors have the experience and technique required to achieve ideal results.*
