A non-surgical, professional aesthetic medicine treatment called injection lipolysis, also known as intralipotherapy, involves injecting a special formulation which chemically dissolves fat cells. The fat cells decomposed after the injection are naturally metabolised by the body. This ensures a slimming effect and non-surgical and non-invasive body contouring. You can use the therapy in our clinics in Poznań next to Podolany and Piątkowo.

Recommendations for injection lipolysis
Intralipotherapy is a perfectly safe treatment and a good starting point take further care of our body. Nothing as motivating for further work on fitness as a fast loss of some unwanted centimetres. When we lose weight, we often get rid of kilograms also from the curves we would prefer to keep. A series of treatments guarantees the effect of removing fat tissue only from the selected area. Injection lipolysis can be applied in the thighs, hips, abdomen or chin, for example:
Examples of lipolysis applications:
- removing a double chin,
- slimming the abdomen area (getting rid of fat folds);
- slimming the lower body (hips, thighs, knees);
- contouring the buttocks;
- slimming the arms in the triceps and armpit area;
- reducing the so-called buffalo hump;
- removing back rolls;
- male gynecomastia.
Effects of a professional injection lipolysis treatment
A visible effect can be seen even after a short series of injection lipolysis. Usually 2-3 sessions are enough to reduce a selected area by 4-5 cm. However, if fat tissue is too thick and abundant, we will need more appointments. In order to boost and speed up the process of centimetre loss in the areas subject to injections, we recommend supplementing the therapy with lymphatic massage, which is also called lymphatic drainage massage and for a good reason. During the massage the therapist will speed up lymph flow and improve fat cell transport through lymph vessels. Thanks to this unwanted fat will be sooner removed from the body. The injections should be taken at 3-4 week intervals, even if fat tissue is thick and abundant.
How is intralipotherapy done
The number of injections is determined by the doctor during an initial consultation. Injecting a special substance which leads to fat dissolving is performed as delicately as possible, as the patient’s comfort is our absolute priority. A special safe substance with phosphatidylcholine as the main component (a chemical compound present in human body, also called lecithin) helps to dissolve and remove unnecessary fat, so a slight reddening and swelling may occur where it was administered. This a good sign of proper operation of the substance. The released fat tissues are transported to the liver and removed from the body. After the treatment the area of injections may be temporarily sensitive to touch. Also itching or slight pain of the skin may occur. The symptoms disappear after several days.

- allergy to the formulation applied,
- pregnancy and breast-feeding,
- liver and kidneys insufficiency,
- acute inflammations,
- illnesses related to blood coagulability problems.
