What Are PCDC Treatments?

April 25, 2022

Do you have a little bit of excess weight that you can't seem to shake? Are you considering liposuction or another surgical option to get rid of it? Well, before you go under the knife, you may want to consider something a little less invasive: PCDC treatments. This fat-dissolving procedure has become increasingly popular over the years, due to its nonsurgical nature and effective results. That's right - you can get rid of those stubborn fat pockets without having to go through surgery! Keep reading to learn more about PCDC treatments and how they can help you achieve the body you've always wanted.

What is PCDC?

PCDC, or phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid, is a fat-dissolving treatment. This nonsurgical procedure breaks down fat cells in targeted areas, resulting in a slimmer and more toned appearance. One of the best things about PCDC is that it doesn't contain any harmful chemicals, as deoxycholic acid already naturally occurs in the body. Its normal job is to help break down and absorb dietary fat, making it the perfect molecule for this type of treatment!

How Does It Work?

During a PCDC treatment, the doctor will inject a solution of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid into the target area. The solution works to break down the fat cells, which are then eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. 

PCDC not only gets rid of fat cells, but also tightens the skin in the treated area. This is because the solution helps to stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. 

What Areas of the Body Can Benefit from PCDC Treatment?

It can be used to target a variety of areas, including the:

  • inner and outer thighs
  • chin
  • jowls
  • back of arms
  • upper and lower back
  • abdomen
  • love handles

Is PCDC Safe?

Yes, PCDC is an FDA-approved treatment that has been proven to be safe and effective. However, as with any procedure, there are always some risks involved. The most common side effects include bruising, swelling, and pain at the injection site. You don't need to worry about these too much, though -  side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of PCDC treatments are long-lasting, but it's important to remember that this does not mean that the fat cells are gone for good. If you gain weight the fat cells will grow larger, and you may start to notice it building up again in the treated areas. To maintain your results, it's important to lead a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight.

Who is a Good Candidate?

PCDC treatments are ideal for those who are relatively fit, but just can't seem to get rid of certain pockets of fat on their body. In contrast, it is not recommended for those who are obese or suffering from obesity-related health problems, so talk to your doctor about other options if this sounds more like you.
