Localized fat: what is it and how to fight it

The excessive accumulation of fat in certain areas of the body, which ends up being unsightly, has not so much to do with the amount of fat contained in the food we eat but with the excess energy that we provide to our body.

Adipocytes: accumulate and mobilize fat

The fat in our bodies is a primary means of energy storage and also acts as insulation against the cold and as a protective tissue for many organs. The elements responsible for accumulating fat when the energy intake is excessive and for mobilizing it when the body requires energy are adipocytes. Adipocytes, which make up adipose tissue, are found (along with fibroblasts and macrophages) in the hypodermis or subcutaneous tissue.

White adipose tissue

There are two types of adipose tissue: BAT or brown adipose tissue and WAT or white adipose tissue. BAT in humans surrounds the heart and great vessels in infancy and tends to disappear as the individual grows. WAT, on the other hand, is the largest store of lipids incorporated through daily intake. The volume of white adipose tissue (WAT) depends on the number of adipocytes and their size, so its growth may be due to an increase in the number of adipocytes or to an increase in their lipid content.

Why we accumulate fat excessively

The excessive accumulation of fat in certain areas of the body, which ends up being unsightly, has not so much to do with the amount of fat contained in the food we eat but with the excess energy that we provide to our body. As we have seen, adipocytes are responsible for both storing fat and mobilizing it. Whether one or another process occurs will depend on the energy required by our body. Therefore, if we want to avoid excessive fat accumulation, it is very important to find a balance between the different factors (internal and external) that influence the configuration of our adipocytes: physical activity, toxic habits, hormones, genetics, age, rest, feeding, etc.

How to fight localized fat

A first step, certainly, is to review our habits globally (diet, physical exercise, toxic habits, etc.). There are hundreds of articles on the subject with many tips to act on this line. However, a healthy diet and lifestyle accompanied by a routine of regular physical activity are not per se guarantee of reducing accumulated fat deposits. It may be that, with effort and patience, a decrease in the percentage of total fat can be achieved, but to see any result in localized fat you would need to burn a lot of calories.

To help in this process and really directly affect the areas of the body where accumulated fat persists, there are different professional treatments that make a difference in a strategy to reduce and reshape the body contour.

BCN Lipid-Peptides, the definitive treatment against localized fat

BCN LIPID-Peptides is a powerful cocktail of active ingredients with synergic effect that gets a reducing action that remodels the body contour thus obtaining a reducing effect and a visible improvement in the quality of the skin. It uses a multi-target strategy perfect for shock therapy on localised fat deposits of the body contour, abdominal folds, uppers arms, saddlebags, thighs, buttocks, knees, and waist. Its novel formula contains classic active ingredients with recognised lipolytic and reducing action that are combined with an innovative cocktail of peptides to restructure the connective tissue and at the same time act on localised fat deposits. The result: a visible body silhouette remodelling and an improvement of the skin quality.

BCN Lipid-Peptides active ingredients

  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-39: This peptide has de dual capacity to intervene in the adipogenesis process and at the same time to decrease the fat accumulation capacity of adipocytes.
  • Caffeine: Due to its cell stimulant effect, accelerates circulation. It also has an effect on adipocytes that activates the release of fat accumulated in them in order to be burned more easily.
  • Carnitine: It helps to transport fatty acids to the inside of the mitochondria, accelerating their metabolism in order to transform them into energy. In the presence of Carnitine, cells turn to fat for energy.
  • Sodium desoxycholate: Is a sodium salt of the deoxycholic bile acid that emulsifies fats.
  • Phosphatidylcholine: Is a phospholipid with a surfactant effect that helps to dissolve fat content and turns it into an emulsion that is easy for the body to metabolize.
  • Pentapeptide-25: Promotes the mitochondrial disengagement that causes a reduction of the lipogenesis and the consequent decrease in fat storage in adipocytes.
  • Pentapeptide-52: Enhance lipid degradation by activating the enzyme lipase. Also, when acts in synergy with caffeine, the lipolytic effect increases and generates a strong lipolysis inducing effect.

Thanks to this synergy of active ingredients BCN Lipid-Peptides:

  1. Modulates the adipogenesis in order to achieve a slimmer figure,
  2. Enhances lipolysis to obtain a draining effect and
  3. Stimulates microcirculation.

The professional treatment with BCN Lipid-Peptides manages, on one hand, to destroy the fatty tissue that leads to localized volume loss and a remodeling of the body contour. On the other hand, it provides a visible improvement in the quality of the skin and in the appearance of cellulite, if it exists.
