Cellulite Reducing Injections
Burlington Med Spa
Cellulite treatment with deoxycholic acid injections have been proven to reduce cellulite on the body. You may have heard of brand names like kybella® and belkyra®. Injections are preferred by patients over other therapies such as radiofrequency and laser because of faster results, less pain and lower cost.
Lower Cost Injections
Cellulite injections are less expensive and chemically reduce (dissolve) the number of fat cells around each injection site. The chemical, called deoxycholic acid, results in fat cell disruption and fat cell elimination.
Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid, naturally found in our body, which breaks down and absorbs fats in our diet. It simply aids in the digestion and absorption of dietary fats.
When injected into the desired area, it literally melts away the fat by destroying fat cell membranes. Read a professional medical article about non-surgical cellulite injections.

Get Ready For Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite in your skin leads to skin dimpling, sometimes referred to as orange peel or cottage cheese looking skin texture. Whatever it is called, women do not like it.
Within our skin layers, fibrous bands of collagen, known as fibrous septae, connect the skin to the underlying muscle. These septae partition off lobes of fat located in the sub-dermis, the third layer of skin.
Cellulite forms when bands of fibrous septae thicken and shrink. The deformity causes the fiber to tug down where it attaches to the skin. This tension causes lobes of fat to protrude around the septae. This leads to the dimpled appearance associated with cellulite.
Cellulite is completely harmless. However, the appearance causes concern for most women. Fortunately, there is a better solution that reduces cellulite without the use of scalpels, painful freezing or intense lasers.
Cellulite injections work most effectively as a package of three sessions spaced at consecutive monthly intervals. What happens during your treatment? First a numbing cream is used for patient comfort.
A precise amount of medication is injected in a grid pattern on the skin area to be treated. The medication is injected in a targeted area of the body. Most patients prefer to have 2 areas areas treated during a single visit.
Our licensed practitioner marks a grid pattern on the skin which ensures the injections are adequately spaced for optimal results. Normally there is swelling afterwards and this is expected. Some discomfort will be felt for a couple of days as excess fat cells begin to dissolve.
Patients who have undergone injections typically have bruising that can last one to two weeks. Patients report mild to moderate soreness alleviated with acetaminophen or ibuprofen. There is mild to moderate swelling for the first few days, as well. You can go to the gym and lead an active lifestyle the day after being treated.
