Lipodissolve Post-Care Guidelines


Please follow these instructions after your LipoDissolve treatment. If you have any questions, please call our office at 610-518-7546.

  • Massage the treated area for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days. A good way to remember this is to massage:
    • as soon as you wake up
    • at breakfast
    • at lunch
    • at dinner
    • before bed
  • After twelve (12) hours, you can use Arnica gel as a base for the massage. Arnica topically will help your body heal from bruising and swelling.  
  • It is normal to experience the following symptoms, which can last from several hours to seven (7) days, depending on the areas treated and medication used:
    • bruising
    • redness
    • itching
    • soreness
    • significant swelling
    • nausea
  • Claritin can be used to help with itching if needed. 
  • Drink at least 64oz of water daily, preferably more, the day of treatment. Continue for one (1) week after treatment. 
  • Do not wash the treated area or take a shower for at least four (4) hours after your treatment. 
  • Do not use any lotions, creams or make-up on the treated area for twelve (12) hours after your treatment. 
  • Do not take any supplements until 48 hours after your procedure.
  • Avoid sun exposure for at least 48 hours after your treatment.
  • Avoid exercise for 48 hours – exercising causes you to sweat, which will decrease the effect of the solutions that have been injected into your tissue.

Eye Fat Treatment

With eye-pad (under eye bag) treatment, expect swelling for at least seven (7) days. You are to remain in a 60 degree vertical position for 20 minutes and sleep on three (3) pillows for two (2) days following the treatment. If pain develops in or around the eye, call the doctor immediately.
