What Is PCDC Lipolysis?

The name PCDC Lipolysis comes from a combination of phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid (PCDC) and Lipodissolve also known as lipolysis or mesotherapy. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The PCDC Lipolysis treatment is intended to reduce and destroy unwanted fat cells.

I used to think negatively about injectables until I came to Enfuse Med Spa. Kevin was so welcoming and accommodating, which made me feel at ease making my first reservation in 2021. But it was Diana who really changed my perception about the experience. She explained, in detail, what was possible and what was not necessary. In the last year she has truly enhanced my natural beauty and I encourage anyone who is curious to seek out her services to feel their most beautiful. Thank you Enfuse!

How Can It Help?

The medication destroys the cell membrane causing lysis when injected into the tissue. The fat cells absorb the medication, become temporarily inflamed and harden, and then are broken down and eliminated by the body’s natural processes.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

PCDC Lipolysis is administered by way of micro-injections which are injected locally into the subcutaneous fat found in the targeted treatment areas. This treatment is currently used in treatments of the unwanted fat found in the submental (double chin) and other small areas.

Am I a Good Candidate?

PCDC lipolysis is suitable for patients who prefer a non-surgical fat reduction treatment. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations. Patients who are at a relatively stable weight and have no plans to gain significant weight are excellent candidates. Candidates must not be not pregnant or breastfeeding.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, we will examine the areas where you want to remove unwanted fatty tissue. We will evaluate your medical history to ensure you are safe for the PCDC lipolysis treatment.

We will create the appropriate treatment plan based on the body areas you are concerned about and the amount of fat you want removed. We will explain the treatment plan, including the number of injections necessary for each treatment area and the estimated cost of the entire treatment.

Specific instructions may be given, including changing or stopping certain medications. Before we schedule your treatment sessions, we will address all your concerns so you can make a sound decision for your fat reduction goals.

Your Treatment Session

PCDC lipolysis treatment can last from 30 minutes up to 1 hour. The exact duration will depend on the number of treatment areas and the treatment plan. Local anesthesia may be administered, as well as 4 to 5 minutes of icing. A specific amount of PCDC will be injected based on the treatment area and amount of excess fat.


The patient can go home right after the treatment. A stinging sensation may be experienced for around 30 minutes or less after the procedure. Some patients can go back to work, while others will need 1 to 2 days of downtime/recovery. Patients may experience temporary redness, itching, swelling, or bruising during the downtime or for the first week.

Specific aftercare instructions will be provided, along with the schedule for the next treatment session.

How Much Does PCDC Lipolysis Cost?

The cost of PCDC Lipolysis injections varies based on the number of injections and the dosage needed to resolve your concerns. Pricing information will be provided at your consultation once your treatment plan has been developed.
