Fat Dissolving Injections

Lipodissolve - reduces fat in the chin.

In our image conscious society, achieving a slim, toned body has become the holy grail of health and beauty. Many people (women and men) are plagued with stubborn areas of adipose tissue (fat deposits) that even zealous and targeted diet and exercise cannot shift. Getting rid of fat is often an issue that dieters and exercisers despair about. Here at Woodford Medical we are able to help.

Lipotherapy – Dissolving fat by injection

Lipotherapy, using small injections of a drug called Phosphatidylcholine, has now become a popular and highly effective method for reducing fat in areas such as the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, love handles and arms. Again it can also be used for facial contouring and sculpting in areas where there is unwanted fat such as under the chin and the jawline.

Please note at Woodford Medical we only offer this treatment for the chin area.

What is being injected?

Phosphatidylcholine is a natural bi-product derived from the Soya bean. Taken orally, in tablet form, it enhances the body’s ability to reduce unwanted fat levels and to slim down. Further research has seen the intravenous mode used as a way of treating fat deposits within the vascular system. Clinical trials as far back as 1996 showed that these injections placed under the skin had a dissolving effect on fat, helping expunge adipose tissue. The use of lipotherapy (for the removal of fat) has been adopted widely throughout Europe with much of the lead research and clinical trials being conducted in Germany. The overwhelming conclusion of this work is that the treatment is safe, effective and permanent.

What are the benefits?

When injected just under the skin into fat deposits this is a highly effective, proven and tested non-surgical treatment for fat reduction in targeted areas that are resistant to weight loss or exercise.

Very happy with my treatment at Woodford Medical! I’ve recently had Lipo-dissolve injections into my chin and jawline and couldn’t be happier!
