Fat Dissolving

Do you suffer from a stubborn double chin that won’t go away, no matter how hard you exercise and diet? Some people’s genetics will always be fighting against them, but luckily we can help! Lipo injections can literally melt your unwanted fat away, permanently! 

What is PCDC Lipolysis?

The name PCDC Lipolysis comes from a combination of phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid (PCDC) and lipodissolve also known as lipolysis or mesotherapy. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The PCDC Lipolysis treatment is intended to reduce and destroy unwanted fat cells.

How can it help?

The medication destroys the cell membrane causing lysis when injected into the tissue. The fat cells absorb the medication, become temporarily inflamed and harden, and then are broken down and eliminated by the body’s natural processes.

What areas can be treated?

PCDC Lipolysis is administered via  micro-injections which are injected locally into the subcutaneous fat found in the targeted treatment areas. This treatment is currently used in treatments of the unwanted fat found in the submental area (double chin).

How long will the effects last?

Depending on the amount of submental fat, you may need multiple treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart in order to achieve the desired look. However, once the fat is dissolved, the results are permanent as long as your weight doesn’t fluctuate significantly!

What is the downtime?

There is no downtime for lipo injections, after treatment you can return to your daily activities. You will experience hardening, swelling, redness and bruising in the area for a few days to a few weeks, with complete swelling resolving around the 4-6 week mark. At this point we can reassess and complete another treatment if required.
