What is PCDC Lipolysis?

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.

How can PCDC Lipolysis help?

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. 

What areas can be treated?

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, such as the inner or outer thighs, love handles, back of upper arms, jowls, upper back, abdomen and more. 

Who is a good candidate?

As long as you’re over the age of 18 and are in good health, you may be a candidate. Ideal candidates:

  • Have small pockets of fat
  • Want to avoid surgery
  • Get no results from diet or exercise

How many PCDC treatments do I need?

Depending on the constitution of your fat pockets and your body’s unique response to the treatment, you’ll probably need to come in for multiple treatments. On average, most people need between three and six sessions to get the best results. 

What can I expect after a treatment?

After each injection, it’s likely that you’ll experience some bruising, redness, and swelling but there’s no need to worry. These are normal reactions to the medicinal solution and injections. You may have mild swelling for up to a month, but when it subsides, you’re left with beautiful results and a more contoured you.
