Optilipo is a thigh cellulite treatment option that has recently been introduced to the market. During this procedure, small amounts of natural plant extracts, homeopathic agents, and vitamins are injected into a person’s skin. A physician based upon the seriousness of a person’s cellulite condition will determine the exact composition of the formula used on a patient. Optilipo can also be used to effectively treat sagging skin. Liposuction does not treat cellulite directly and can, inadvertently, enhancing preexisting cellulite.
By contrast, Optilipo treats cellulite directly. The ingredients used in Optilipo removes fat from targeted areas of the buttocks and thighs and prevents the reformation of fat in these targeted areas. This thigh cellulite treatment is non surgical and requires only a minimal amount of invasiveness. Furthermore, it does not require admittance to a hospital, anesthesia, or a recuperation period. It may take several sessions of treatment with Optilipo before a person’s body is able to block the formation of fat in the treated areas of the body.
On average, it will take two to four sessions of treatment before results are visible to others. Most patients describe the sensation of the injection as relaxing, similar to that of acupuncture. A patient may incur bruising at the injection sights; however, their physician should be able to provide oral or topical supplements which can be applied to reduce swelling or bruising. Certain medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, should be avoided for one week before the Optilipo treatments begin. Vigorous activity or strenuous exercise must be avoided for 48 hours after the initial treatment. The cost of Optilipo varies widely; however, a full course of treatment will generally cost between $2,500 and $7,000. A full course of treatment is generally comprised of five to fifteen sessions. Results are generally maintained for six to twelve months, and an individual’s doctor may recommend one to three maintenance sessions during the first six months after one’s treatment sessions are complete. Approximately twenty percent of patients will need to undergo a second round of Optilipo treatments after one year.
