What is an injection lipolysis?
Injection lipolysis is a procedure of injecting special preparations into the fatty tissue, which contribute to the reduction of local fatty tissue deposits. The treatment can be applied topically to those areas of the body that are distinguished by the presence of fat deposits that are difficult to remove.

Celluform injection lipolysis is designed for modeling such body parts as buttocks, arms, thighs or abdomen, supra-knee area, hips, bull’s neck.
The preparation for injection lipolysis contains the following active substances:
- soybean extract, which is a source of phosphatidylcholine, supporting the metabolism of fat released from adipocytes
- deoxycholic acid, which acts on fat cells like a detergent, leading to the disruption of cell membranes and the release of fat from them
- vitamin PP, i.e. nicotinamide, which widens blood vessels and improves cellulite reduction.
The preparation permanently destroys fat cells, and also improves the reduction of fat stagnation after the treatment, while oxygenating and firming the skin. This translates into slimming the figure and smoothing cellulite.

What does the injection lipolysis treatment look like?
Injection lipolysis of the abdomen or other parts of the body is a local slimming and shaping therapy, consisting in injecting selected parts of adipose tissue with an appropriate preparation. The treatment is always preceded by a medical consultation, during which contraindications to the procedure are excluded and the treatment plan is discussed. The procedure involves introducing the preparation with a thin needle, and the number of punctures depends on the area of the body to be treated. The injection lipolysis procedure takes several dozen minutes. When injection lipolysis is performed, the effects in the form of slimming and firming the figure are noticeable after 4-8 weeks. In order to obtain the best effect, it is recommended to perform a series of treatments. Usually 4-6 treatments performed every 6 weeks are enough.
After injection lipolysis, the skin may be red and swollen, and slight bruising may appear. These symptoms disappear spontaneously after 3-4 days. For three days after the treatment, you should avoid intense exercise, and for a week you should refrain from sunbathing, using the sauna or swimming pool. It is advisable to drink plenty of water as well as follow a low-fat diet. In order to improve lymphatic drainage contributing to the removal of fat released from adipocytes, it is worth performing endermologic procedures. This advanced body massage treatment firms the skin, smoothes it, and speeds up the removal of fat from the treatment sites by directing it to the liver where fat is metabolized.
