How does Lipodissolve / Lipostabil work?
Lipodissolve contains the active ingredient Lecithin also known as PPC (Phosphatidyl choline) which dissolves the fat cell wall and causes fat reduction. The long term results of the Lipodissolve procedure are very dependent on what active ingredients are present in the solution. At Body Renewal, we always use a combination of Lecithin and award winning growth factors and peptides. The growth factors & peptides present in the cocktail stimulate the production of collagen so that the dermis is strengthened and skin texture improved on.

Can Lipodissolve be combined with other treatments?
Body Renewal is excited to offer the next step in multi-modality therapy in treating resistant fat and cellulite. We call it the Bottom Line. Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it's not sufficient. Resistant fat and cellulite have different forms and grades and thus success needs a combination of treatments that include lymphatic drainage, reduction of fat cells, stretching of connective tissue and collagen stimulation.
At Body Renewal Lipodissolve is commonly performed with Lipomassage™, TriPollar Velashape and Carboxytherapy treatments for best results. All the above treatments improve lymphatic drainage and promote the metabolism and excretion of resistant fat which is released by the Lipodissolve procedure. At Body Renewal we pride ourselves on results. A highly professional team led by a medical doctor assesses every patient. Careful patient selection and adhering strictly to the Slender Wonder program and an exercise is of utmost importance in getting good results with our body shaping and fat reduction treatments A customized package is then prescribed for each patient.
At Body Renewal, with a combination of treatments, in 3 to 6 months we can take a good body and turn it into a Perfect body: slim, firm, smooth and sculpted
What To Expect After the Lipodissolve procedure?
A mild redness and swelling of the skin occurs following the procedure which usually resolves within 3 to 5 days. Mild bruising also occurs and this usually resolves after 7 days. At Body Renewal, since the introduction of a radiofrequency RF procedure after the Lipodissolve treatment there are only mild side effects such as swelling and bruising which resolve without any consequences. Long term results of a Lipodissolve treatment are also improved if a RF treatment follows a Lipodissolve treatment.
How many treatment sessions are needed?
Results can be seen after the third or fourth treatment. For best results 4 to 8 treatments are needed 2 to 4 weeks apart.
What is resistant fat?
Just about everyone is familiar with fat pockets that you cannot get rid of. No matter how much you exercise, eat healthily and maintain your body at a healthy weight, localized fatty pockets fat pockets will continue to be problematic.
A possible explanation behind this is that some fat cells have a predominance of beta receptors and others have a dominance of alpha receptors. Beta receptors are very receptive to the presence of adrenaline which is produced by exercise. Fat cell breakdown is triggered when adrenaline attaches to the beta receptors. Fatty areas with a predominance of beta receptors respond to exercise and a person on a regular exercise program will see noticeable results.
The opposite applies to fatty areas with a predominance of alpha receptors. When adrenaline attaches to alpha receptors, fat breakdown slows down and the fat tends to accumulate more. This explains why some people will experience problems in areas that just won't respond to a consistent and regular exercise. These problem areas are typically around the hips, tummy and upper thighs, leading to love handles, saddle bags, spare and tummy rolls.
Is Lipodissolve safe?
Lipodissolve safely treats all skin types without significant pain or down-time. It can erase centimeters of localised areas of fat and the appearance of resistant fat and cellulite is noticeably improved in 4 to 6 treatment sessions two weeks apart.
At Body Renewal hundreds of Lipodissolve treatments have been administered to our patients with great results. Since the introduction of a radiofrequency RF after the Lipodissolve treatments, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the side effect profile and long term results of a Lipodissolve treatment. To evaluate results, we have patients come in for follow-up evaluations visits six months following the treatments and recommend maintenance treatments for continued results.
Can all skin types be safely treated with Lipodissolve?
Yes, all skin types can be safely treated with Lipodissolve.
Body Renewal Tip;
If Carboxytherapy sessions are incorporated into your treatments, one can expect quicker results and 4 to 6 treatments are usually required for a cellulite and resistant fat reduction instead of the traditional 6 to 8 treatments. Carboxytherapy done before the procedure improves the circulation, metabolism and excretion of the resistant fat.
