Liquid Lipo (PCDC)
Liquid Lipo (PCDC)
PCDC ‘Liquid Lipo’ is a minimally-invasive fat-dissolving treatment that can be used to target problem areas. Also called Lipolysis, this form of Mesotherapy involves injecting fat dissolving medication such as Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) micro-injections into fat deposits resulting in a slimmer and more toned appearance. Schedule a consultation today to see if Liquid Lipo is right for you.
Areas treatable with PCDC lipolysis include:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Love handles
- Upper and lower back
- Back of arms
A photofacial treatment takes between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the areas to be treated. With this treatment, there is no downtime. However, the broken melanin will rise to the skin’s surface. Giving the skin’s surface a coffee grind or peppering appearance. Your body’s “clean up” system absorbs the fragmented pigmented melanin particles and eliminates them. This peppering is easily concealed with foundation.
Commonly targeted areas are the face, chest, back of the hands, arms, top of the shoulders, and back.
An injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of unwanted fat using PCDC (Phosphatidylcholine and Deoxycholic Acid).
By combining Phosphatidycholine and Deoxycholic acid and injecting it into areas of unwanted fat, Liquid Liposuction has the ability to destroy fat cells during an in-office treatment, without anesthesia or an extended recovery. It can be used in areas such as under the chin, bra fat, abdominal fat, etc. Multiple sessions may be required. Pricing is modified based on surface area and number of vials used. Please book a consultation for further information.
PCDC injections, often labeled as lipodissolve, mesotherapy, or PCDC lipolysis, are a combination of two substances, phosphatidylcholine (PC) and deoxycholate (DC). These substances naturally exist in our bodies and when combined and injected, they can help reduce and dissolve stubborn body fat permanently.
Some common mild side effects include redness, swelling, stinging, bruising, and general soreness that may last a few days after the procedure. Although rare, more serious side effects can include infection, skin necrosis, and lumps at the injection site.
The exact number of treatments needed may vary from person to person, but typically, patients require around 3-5 treatments for optimal results. Treatments are generally spaced about 4-5 weeks apart, which allows most people to easily accommodate multiple procedures into their schedules.
The process begins by identifying the area that needs treatment. Once this area is determined, the PCDC solution is injected into the fat just beneath the skin following a grid-like pattern. It works by breaking down the walls of the fat cells, which then absorb the PCDC. This results in temporary swelling, hardening, and eventual bursting of these fat cells. The released fat and cell debris are then naturally broken down and removed by the body’s defense mechanisms.
Yes, similar to liposuction, this procedure can permanently remove fat cells from the treated areas. However, if you gain weight, any remaining fat cells in the treatment area and throughout your body can still grow, which could lessen the effectiveness of your results.
