Lipolysis method

What is lipolysis?

Less burden on the body
Hard to rebound

Lipolysis is a treatment that involves injecting a drug that dissolves fat into the area that you want to lose weight and reducing subcutaneous fat in that area. Because the cost is reasonable, you can feel free to take it.

The principle of the lipolysis method

Drugs used for lipolysis are drugs used to treat hyperlipidemia and fatty liver. When injected into the area of ​​concern, the drug gradually penetrates the fat cells and breaks down the adipose tissue. Decomposed fat is absorbed by the blood and eventually excreted out of the body. Once you become an adult, the number of fat cells rarely increases or decreases naturally, so once the number of fat cells decreases in the lipolysis method / diet, it becomes difficult to rebound.

History of lipolysis

Lipolysis is an injection therapy developed by French doctor Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952 as a pain control (treatment of pain). Because the active ingredient is injected in small doses directly into the area to be treated, it is suitable for improving each part of the body, including the face and neck, and is recognized as a medical option in 19 countries worldwide. In Japan, it is widely applied to alopecia areata, aging care (wrinkles and sagging), skin scar treatment, sports medicine, and pain treatment for joint pain and forty shoulders. Skills are required to perform treatments, so training courses, lectures, and seminars on skills acquisition are held.

Risk, side effects, complications

After lipolysis treatment, swelling, internal bleeding, and dull pain (pain like muscle pain) at the injection site may appear, but they gradually relieve. Avoid intense exercise until the symptoms subside.

Although rare, allergic reactions (rash, sickness, itching, etc.) may occur as with other medicines. The possibility of allergic reactions such as discomfort, itching, nausea and vomiting is not completely zero. However, the treatment called lipolysis dissolves and absorbs fats, and in the process of being absorbed, if any allergic reaction causes mild itching or redness, it is absorbed and improved.

As a general rule, nausea and vomiting due to allergies usually improve within a few hours.


Oral medicines can be thinner overall, but the lipolysis method can partially thin the stomach, upper arms, thighs, etc., which are difficult to lose.

The injection is made shallowly under the skin to be thinned, but as a guideline, about 20 injections are made within the palm size range.

I do not feel any strong pain because it is performed while cooling.
However, due to individual differences, it is possible to apply anesthesia to those with weak pain after applying anesthesia.

Effective for partial thinning, such as upper arms, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen

The effect cannot be greatly expected with only one injection.
Since the effect usually comes out from the 5th place, we recommend the 6th course.

Because of the possibility of redness and internal bleeding, it is better to avoid treating the upper arm during the short sleeve season such as summer. (However, the fact that redness has come out means that the effect of the injection has come out, so on the contrary, the effect can not be expected unless redness comes out.)
Swelling ... 1 or 2 days to 1 week.
Internal bleeding ... 1-2 weeks.

You should avoid bathing and drinking alcohol. 
If you are pregnant, you can't do it.

Depending on the range, the injection itself takes about 10 minutes.
It will take about 20 to 30 minutes for the massage to be done after injection.
