Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) micro-injections which are injected locally into the targeted treatment areas.
The fat cells absorb the PCDC and become slightly inflamed and then harden. The hardened fat cells break down within a few weeks and are eliminated via the body’s natural processes.
Using a fine needle, the PCDC solution is injected into fat deposits, typically in the abdomen, face, hips or back. For large areas such as the stomach, as many as 120 injections may be required at one time. Sometimes the shots are administered using a rapid-fire instrument called a “mesogun” rather than a syringe.
