How Does Kybella & LipoDissolve Work ?

Kybella & Lipodissolve are minimally-invasive fat-dissolving treatment that can be used to target problem areas on the face, hips, back, and abdomen. The Lipodissolve sometime referred as Mesotherapy solution is injected into fat deposits using a fine needle, and the fat cells absorb the solution and become slightly inflamed. This inflammation then hardens the fat cells, which break down within a few weeks and are eliminated via the body’s natural processes.

How does it work?

The phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate are working as detergents causing the oily cell wall and other fats to be dissolved in the watery fluid around the fat cell. This causes the cells to burst and release their enzymes. The immune system, led by white blood cells migrating into the fat tissue, is then activated to clean up the debris from the dissolved cells. This inflammatory response of the body is responsible for some of the soreness felt after an injection. Soreness can last several weeks. The inflammatory response not only completes the destruction of the fat cells; it also causes some collagen and other proteins to be deposited in the area leading to the tightening and compacting of the subcutaneous tissue. Biopsies of sites show that the destruction of the fat cells is permanent. The fat and cellular debris that have been cleared are returned with the immune cells as waste into the normal metabolic pathways.
