It is not a medical treatment and falls into the non-invasive Mesotherapy range of treatments.
SCIENCE BEHIND LIPOLYSIS
Lipolysis for fat removal and cellulite treatment uses a mixture of fat-dissolving phosphatidylcholine and Deoxycholate saline solution, injected to the localised regions of the body. The treatment is performed by a specially trained professional and involves virtually painless micro-injections into the targeted fat layer beneath the skin.
The active ingredient is Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) a component of Soy Lecithin, which has the ability to remove fat permanently. Lecithin prevents the body from storing fat in the targeted regions and improves the fat burning capacity of the body.
The second component is Deoxycholate (DC) saline solution that keeps PPC in a soluble, injectable state. During application, active substances lead to cracking of the membranes of fat cells in the treated zone and to outpouring of their content into the surrounding tissue. From there, in a natural way, via the bloodstream, the fat is transported to the liver and metabolised. Transportation takes place via the lymphatic system, therefor the need to drink a lot of water.
The Skin Revival difference comes into play due to the fact that we add a cocktail of herbs and seaweed to speed up fat metabolism, general metabolism and movement of the emulsified fat into the lymph system. It is necessary to emphasise that this procedure is not an alternative to a healthy diet or exercise, but helps to target areas not easily affected by regular exercise and dieting.
Phosphatidylcholine has been successfully used around the world for almost 16 years as part of intravenous treatment of cholesterol related illnesses and more recently, also for the reduction of fat deposits in targeted regions of the body. It was first used in Italy and became popular in Brazil, the USA, and recently also in South Africa.
EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TREATMENT
The technique has been successfully applied in the treatment of more than 8500 patients in Latin America without any complications or side effects. According to a study conducted and published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal in 2006, 88% of the 17, 376 patients treated from 17 different countries were satisfied with the results of Lipolysis.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
People who would like to remove small to medium size fat pockets in targeted areas of the body, but don’t want to undergo surgery. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as anyone who is allergic to soy, has stroke histories or those who recently recovered from cancer, those with blood clotting history, as well as those on heart disease medication, should not consider the treatment. People with iodine or caffeine allergies should not use the cocktail

THE SHORT STORY OF LIPOLYSIS
Lipolysis is an innovative, gentle and non-surgical method to remove the accumulation of fat deposits in specific regions of the body.
It is one of the safest methods for removing double chin, and fat around the waist, inner thigh and abdomen, under the upper arms, knees and ankles.
It is also an extremely effective method for combating cellulite and to tighten sagging, loose skin.
Lipolysis is used to improve the effects of dieting and exercise.
Safe to use on men and women over the age of 16.
IS THE LIPOLYSIS TREATMENT PAINFUL?
As there are few nerve fibres in the subcutaneous tissue, the injections are not painful. Patients only feel a slight initial prick and, for the first 2 hours, a slight sensation of itching and burning. Only 4% of all patients need a pain-killing tablet on the first night after treatment.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
Since it is a non-invasive procedure, patients can return to work immediately after the treatment.
• Avoid hot showers and baths should best be avoided for eight hours after treatment.
• Refrain from excessive exercising and massages for the first week after treatment.
• It is a relatively painless procedure although patients may experience discomfort from the initial injection pricks. Light swelling, redness and a burning sensation may be experienced at the targeted areas for one to four days. Light bruises will disappear within a week.
• In rare cases, some hardening may occur (deep haematomas, bruises), but these disappear by themselves
after 2-6 weeks.
Altogether, the therapy can be regarded as low in side-effects. If a person has a low pain threshold it is recommended that the patient takes a light pain killer after the treatment.
• Lipolysis contains no animal products.
• It is not a hormonal treatment and contains no hormones.
• It is not a medical treatment and falls into the meso- therapy range of treatments.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS ?
Lipolysis requires 1-3 treatments per body area over a period depending on the results required.
The cost is normally calculated according to the targeted areas at a fixed rate. It is an extremely popular method because of its affordability.
One comes for the injections once a month.
