For those who wish to rid themselves of small amounts of body fat but do not want to undergo liposuction surgery there are other options available. The most popular of these alternatives to liposuction is a method that uses a chemical injection. It is very effective and much safer than any surgical procedure. Since it is an easier treatment than surgery and the areas of the body requiring treatment are smaller, many people find that the costs are usually more affordable.
There are several advantages to this method of fat reduction in the body. It is minimally invasive since the only penetration of the skin is the needle used to inject the chemical directly into the area where the treatment is desired. The injection is made up of enzymes and other ingredients designed specifically to target unwanted body fat while leaving other tissue unharmed. The body fat is dissolved by this chemical solution and the liquefied fat is picked up and removed naturally by the body as waste.
The treatments are marketed under different names but the principle remains the same. In North America the popular treatment is known as Lipodissolve while in most parts of South America and Europe patients are frequently treated with a treatment known as Mesotherapy. Both are also useful in different aspects of cosmetic and health procedures such as reducing cellulite or rejuvenating the skin.
It is very popular for facial treatments and often is cheaper than something like chin liposuction cost. By removing fat from the face it can produce smoother, tighter and younger looking skin. It is great around places like the face where only very small amounts of fat need to be removed. Some boney areas that make it difficult to treat with liposuction is also a good candidate for this method of non surgical fat removal.
