The name PCDC Lipolysis comes from a combination of phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid (PCDC) and Lipodissolve also known as lipolysis or mesotherapy. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The PCDC Lipolysis treatment is intended to reduce and destroy unwanted fat cells.
The medication destroys the cell membrane causing lysis when injected into the tissue. The fat cells absorb the medication, become temporarily inflamed and harden, and then are broken down and eliminated by the body’s natural processes.
PCDC Lipolysis is administered by way of micro-injections which are injected locally into the subcutaneous fat found in the targeted treatment areas. This treatment is currently used in treatments of the unwanted fat found in the submental (double chin) and other small areas.
PCDC lipolysis is suitable for patients who prefer a non-surgical fat reduction treatment. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations. Patients who are at a relatively stable weight and have no plans to gain significant weight are excellent candidates. Candidates must not be not pregnant or breastfeeding.
During your consultation, we will examine the areas where you want to remove unwanted fatty tissue. We will evaluate your medical history to ensure you are safe for the PCDC lipolysis treatment.
We will create the appropriate treatment plan. We will explain the treatment plan, including the number of injections necessary for each treatment area and the estimated cost of the entire treatment.
PCDC lipolysis treatment can last from 30 minutes up to 1 hour.. Local anesthesia may be administered, as well as 4 to 5 minutes of icing. A specific amount of PCDC will be injected based on the treatment area and amount of excess fat.
The client can go home right after the treatment. A stinging sensation may be experienced for around 30 minutes or less after the procedure. Some patients can go back to work. Patients may experience temporary redness, itching, swelling, or bruising during the downtime or for the first week. Swelling can be significant. You may use ice topically and take Tylenol for the discomfort.
The cost of PCDC Lipolysis injections varies based on the number of injections and the dosage needed to resolve your concerns. Pricing information will be provided at your consultation once your treatment plan has been developed.
