ENZYME THERAPY – REMOVAL OF DOUBLE CHINS, SUNKEN BODY CONTOURS AND SCARS
Enzyme therapy is a modern method that injects local enzymes such as lipase, collagenase, hyaluronidase and lyase into the skin and subcutaneous tissue to reduce localized fat, collagen remodelling and swelling reduction. These applied recombinant enzymes of non – animal origin, are stored by lyophilisation without the addition of preservatives, which ensures a low risk of allergic reaction. Every enzyme only works on a certain component without negatively affecting the other structures. Lipase degrades triglycerides from adipocyte fat cells, reduces their volume without them damaging, thereby reducing the risk of inflammation and pain. Collagenase breaks down non-functional, possibly accumulated pathological collagen, which leads to the formation of a functional collagen, the firming of sagging skin and reduction of scars. Hyaluronidase and lyase break down polysaccharides, which cause increased fluid retention in a certain area e.g. under-eye bags. Enzyme cocktails contain various combinations of these 4 enzymes depending on the problem waiting to be solved. They are injected by several small punctures into the chin area, sagging jawls, and onto acne scars. And with a needle or a cannula into the area of the under-eye bags. This procedure must be completed 2-5 times with an interval of about 2-3 weeks, with gradual reduction after each session of fat in the area, strengthening of the contours of the jaw and cheeks, the reduction of under-eye bags, and the smoothing of scars. Enzyme therapy can also be used in other areas of the body for the purposes of body contouring and elimination of stretch marks and scars.
