Lipodissolve™ is an advanced non-surgical treatment designed to treat patients with excess weight or cellulite in problem areas like the hips, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms. LipoDissolve is considered an ideal alternative to liposuction, as it treats fat buildup without the patient having to go under the knife. It involves a series of injections containing a fat-melting solution. It’s similar to the popular cellulite treatment Mesotherapy, but LipoDissolve uses a different combination of ingredients to reduce the look of excess weight and cellulite.
How does LipoDissolve work?
A patient undergoing LipoDissolve will experience a series of injections to their problem areas. These injections contain a special formula that liquefies the fat, making it easier to drain out of the body. Rather than using a surgical cannula to remove the fat (as in liposuction), the excess fat naturally drains itself from the body non-surgically over time.
Am I a candidate for LipoDissolve?
Candidates for LipoDissolve are people in generally good health who wish to lose weight and cellulite from certain areas of their body that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. While LipoDissolve and Mesotherapy are similar, LipoDissolve is newer and considered more advanced than Mesotherapy.
Visiting a LipoDissolve specialist for a consultation is the best way to learn more about the procedure and to find out if you’re a candidate.
How much does LipoDissolve cost?
The average cost of LipoDissolve is about $700. However, treatment cost can range from as low as $375 to as much as $1,000. It’s important to note that these numbers reflect just one LipoDissolve session, and most patients will need about six sessions total. Factors that will affect price include the size and complexity of your desired treatment area, your geographical location, and the LipoDissolve practitioner’s individual rates.
How long is a LipoDissolve session?
The average LipoDissolve session takes about an hour. Small areas like under the chin will take less time, whereas large sections like the thighs will take longer.
Does LipoDissolve hurt?
LipoDissolve injections may cause minor discomfort. Anesthesia isn’t necessary, but most practitioners use a topical numbing cream to decrease the skin’s sensitivity. Afterwards, any soreness may be treated with an over-the-counter pain medication.
What is the recovery time for LipoDissolve?
There is no recovery time associated with LipoDissolve. Many patients report that they are able to undergo a LipoDissolve session and then returned to their normal schedule. Minor swelling, redness, and bruising may occur in the few hours after treatment.
Are there any side effects to LipoDissolve?
LipoDissolve does not carry the risk of any serious side effects. As stated above, minor bruising and swelling at the injection site is normal and temporary. Diabetics and patients with cardiovascular disease have also experienced some complications with LipoDissolve, which is why it’s important to inform your doctor of any existing health conditions.
How long do LipoDissolve results last?
The results of LipoDissolve are indefinite—they will last as long or as little as you make them. Following a diet and exercise plan to keep the weight off after LipoDissolve is highly recommended.
Does insurance cover LipoDissolve?
