Cellulite (often described as “orange peel”) is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue and is mainly due to the disorder of microcirculation and lymphatic drainage.
Although cellulite can affect both sexes, it is much more common in females. Areas like thighs and buttocks are especially prone to cellulite.
Injection Lipolysis therapy started in 1995 by Dr. Rittes (Dermatologist from Sao Paulo – Brazil).
She developed the procedure in which the substance phosphatidylcholine (obtained from soybeans) is injected directly into undesired fat deposits.
Phosphatidylcholine is effective in lipolysis but it is not the “miracle drug” in case that you don’t follow a healthy weight loss plan and change your fitness routine.
What areas can be treated?
The most common areas that are treated are love handles, abdominal bulges, thighs (inner and outer), buttocks, arms, double chins. It can also be injected into lipomas to dissolve them non-surgically.
At least 4-6 sessions every 3-4 weeks are required to obtain excellent results.
