The lipophilic fatty acids and hydrophilic phosphoric acid based esters together contribute an amphiphilic character. They are bipolar and act as an emulsifying agent.
Phospholipids when hydrated have a unique property of self assembling into vesicles. These vesicles known as LIPOSOMES are promising systems for drug delivery and can be unilamellar (single phospholipid bilayer) or multilamellar (two or more phospholipid bilayers). They can encapsulate both, drugs and phyto-actives or phytonutrients.
They are highly biocompatible, biodegradable with no toxicity & high aptitude to entrap both hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs and have site specific drug delivery.
It is the latest range of lipo-sculpting (removing) fat accumulations i.e. to reduce or eliminate unwanted localized accumulated fats. It is non-surgical, relatively painless injection technique.
