Lipodissolve (also known as “Lipo Dissolve”) is a non-surgical fat reduction technique using microinjections. It is an injectable solution containing medications, multivitamins, alpha lipid acid, enzymes, plant extracts, and most importantly phosphatidylcholine, which is actually natural product found in our body. Injected directly into fat deposits. Lipodissolve helps breakdown and emulsify the fat deposits, which are then naturally flushed out of the body by the liver, bowels and kidneys. The injection is relatively painless, with no need for anesthesia. Lipodissolve is most ideal for treating small, localized areas.
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.
Patients generally have 2-4 treatments, spaced 3-4 weeks apart.

Upper and lower abdomen
Residual fat deposits post-liposuction

DOES IT HURT?We use very small needles as well as a very small localized numbing agent so you will feel virtually nothing. That being said, everyone has a different pain threshold. Some find it painless and others feel slight discomfort with the needle insertion. Most people find the IV infusion itself quite calming and relaxing. Some customers might feel some warmth as certain nutrients enter the bloodstream such as B vitamins or magnesium.
IS IT SAFE?Yes, vitamin IV therapy is very safe provided it is administered by a licensed medical practitioner and overseen by a Medical Director. We use high quality vitamins, minerals and amino acids sourced from certified suppliers. Also, IV therapy has been utilized for over 50 years and was developed by Dr. John Myers (the Myer’s cocktail).
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET AN IV FOR IT TO BE EFFECTIVE?Depending on your nutritional needs you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. People who get regular IVs will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance. Some get an IV weekly, multiple times a week, several times a month or as needed.
WHY NOT JUST TAKE SUPPLEMENTS?Many people do not absorb vitamins in their digestive track very well. For those dealing with digestive issues such as constipation, chron’s, celiac, IBS it can be helpful to bypass the digestive track and go directly to the bloodstream for high absorption at a cellular level.
IS THERE AN REASON I SHOULD NOT DO AN IV?We believe IV therapy can be beneficial for a wide variety of individuals. We also inform our customers of the fact that we are not a medical treatment center and therefore we do not treat or diagnosis health issues. Drip MB Hydration & Wellness offers a supportive therapeutic health and wellness service. If you have a major health condition please consult with your doctor before obtaining vitamin IV therapy.
