17 Aug Intralipotherapy against localized adiposity
Localized adiposities are accumulations of fat that deposit in specific areas of the body such as hips, thighs and buttocks, representing an annoying aesthetic and functional problem.
Today we present a non-surgical liposuction technique called adipocitolysis (or, more commonly, intralipotherapy), an aesthetic medicine methodology which, to date, represents one of the most effective medical techniques for the non-surgical treatment of localized adiposity in subjects who do not want undergo a lipoaspiration operation.
Intralipotherapy consists of the injection of a medical solution into the subcutaneous adipose tissue: this drug will generate the lysis of the fat cells which will be disposed of through the urine. Given the type of treatment, the same can only be performed by medical personnel.
Before carrying out this treatment, it is necessary to carry out a series of blood tests (for the evaluation of the liver, heart and kidneys) and it is advisable to analyze cellulite by contact thermography to determine its stage (this treatment, in fact, is not suitable in case of sclerotic cellulite).
The thermographic analysis is completely painless and free of contraindications, representing an excellent method for analyzing and classifying the condition of cellulite; it is based on the use of high resolution thermographic plates which, once placed on the area to be treated, reflect the condition of the underlying tissues.
Contact thermography can be used even when the presence of the imperfection is not noticed: indeed, it may happen that cellulite is not evident yet or detectable on palpation but already present in the underlying tissues: this allows you to be able to intervene immediately in a preventive perspective.
For intralipotherapy treatment, anesthesia is not necessary since microscopic needles are used, however it is normal to feel a slight burning or a tingling sensation both during the treatment and in the following hours. You can immediately return to your activities but we recommend wearing opaque clothes because small edemas or bruises may form as a direct consequence of the treatment.
At least 4 sessions spaced 15-30 days apart are required (also for this reason it is essential to use a medical center that can check the progress of the results through contact thermography).
Intralipotherapy is a definitive solution to the problem of cellulite but, we would like to remind you that, if you do not follow a healthy lifestyle combined with a balanced diet, the imperfection can recur.
