Lipo-Dissolution & Hydrolipoclasia
Hydrolipoclasia comes from the Greek word Hydro that means Water; Lipo that means fat; and Clasia that means “to break”, “to blow”.
Hydrolipoclasia. In a fast and natural way this procedure eliminates without scalpel the belly, fat folds, saddlebags.
The success of ultrasound hydrolipoclasia is due to the fact that this treatment eliminates localized fat areas with ultrasound and pharmaceutical substances that degrade fat.
• It is effective; it does not require hospitalization; it is not invasive.
• It is not risky.
• It is not based on diets, and it is the best option for people whose figure has changed due to fat gain in localized in small to medium sized areas
Ultrasound produces thermogenesis (heat) when the waves move inside water or sterile physiological solution they produce cavitation. This novelty technique is indicated for localized fatty areas because it has a similar effect to micro liposuction, but without the surgery. The sound waves generate very intense movement and the resulting cavitation produces excellent results. The waves move the fat and it gets loose and dissolves naturally into the lymphatic current; this way fat is eliminated in the urine. This phenomenon also brakes fibrosis, an important component of cellulite.
Cellulite or orange skin.- Where does this problem begin? All fat cells include receptors, and there are two important receptors: Alpha and Beta.
Men have more Beta receptors than Alpha receptors, while women produce more Alpha receptors.
Alpha receptors gather fat, while Beta receptors reject fat. Women have around 80% of Alpha receptors located around the hip, breast, and thighs, which contribute to the distinctive feminine body shape. However, for different reasons these cells are accumulated and deform the body making it to look fat.
How is this method administered?
Similar to a liposculpture, the doctor identifies the area with a skin marker and disinfects the zone. After that the area is infiltrated with a hypotonic physiological sterile solution and a combination of specific reducers that are well distributed in the subdermic tissue. In the abdomen for example, it is applied with special mesotherapy injectors in two sectors, one in each side of the belly button and the application does not last more than three to five minutes. In saddlebags the technique is applied one time and also in the internal side of the knees or in the hips. It can be applied in less traditional areas such as the neck or the higher part of the ankle or arms.
The treatment is provided with a powerful external ultrasound that provides up to 30 Watts/ cm2 of power and is delivered over the area that previously had the injections. The patient feels a massage in the treated areas.
However, this is the most important part where the fat cells are broken. Once the ultrasound application is over, the treated area remains swollen due to the liquid injected and in the following days the area can become even more swollen and somewhat painful but it will progressively improve with decreasing fat in the treated area and variable skin tightening.
The results are clear after the first session but some patients require several treatments! Some women notice a reduction of two sizes in two or three sessions only, but all, thin or not, see some reduction in a little time.
Are there any side effects or contraindications?
It is very rare to have any side effects but we have seen several patients with a more intense inflammatory reaction that has always subsided within 2 to 3 weeks. In rare cases there has been a greasy diarrhea and fever for the first 24 hrs. This is a treatment for cellulite or mild localized areas with fat. This is not a substitute for liposuction.
What does the patient feel during the procedure? A tickling sensation, or something like a needle puncture. Nevertheless, from the ultrasound part the sensation is fresh and nice and the patient will feel like a gentle massage with some heat sensation. This procedure might have to be repeated every 2 or 3 weeks for a total of 3 to 5 times until optimal results are obtained.
