Lipo-Dissolve for Fat Reduction in Rochester, MI

While we don’t offer Lipo-dissolve, we would like to take the opportunity to explain why. Many of the ingredients are no longer available and the compounded ingredients are not well regulated even at an FDA-approved pharmacy. Also, transport may affect the viability of the medication. In addition, the side effect profile is steeper than the FDA-approved Kybella treatment, which we do offer. While the medical community has known this procedure worked in the past, as medicine has evolved we have found better alternatives.

Kybella is FDA-approved for chin fat and is efficacious in other areas with much less of a side effect profile than the generic compound Lipodissolve. Also, patients can earn Alle points with Allergan for credit toward more or another Allergan service, including botox, Juvederm suite of fillers, CoolSculpting Elite, Diamond Glow facials, and Skin Medica skin care products

What Is Lipo-Dissolve?

Lipo-Dissolve is also known as “meso therapy”, which means injecting medicine into the “middle layer” to destroy fat cells. This Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate is an FDA-approved medication but IS NOT FDA approved for fat reduction.

It has been used for decades to reduce fat, in 1988 Sergio Maggiore described the use and effectiveness in Europe, and as early as 2004 it was being used in the United States.

There are several studies published on its efficacy, but because it is generic, the cost to get FDA approval for this fat reduction indication is prohibitive.

This non-surgical procedure uses a series of injections to contour as well as destroy fat cells. With Lipo-Dissolve, we’re able to target fat deposits that may be resistant to weight loss through diet and exercise.

The medication deoxycholate destroys fat cells and phosphatidylcholine helps facilitate the clearing of the dead fat cells.
