Lipodissolve is a safe and non-surgical cosmetic approach for reducing localized fat deposits. This procedure involves of a series of small injections of phosphatidylcholine used to sculpt areas where stubborn body fat accumulates and does not easily respond to exercise and diet alone.
By breaking down fat cells, the fat is emptied from the areas where it has lead to unsightly fat accumulations and is metabolized and released through your kidneys and digestive tract. The procedure generally takes 30 minutes or less and requires no preparation or recovery time.
Because there is no surgery, there is no risk from anesthesia and no post-surgical downtime. Patients can expect normal signs of inflammation around the injection area including redness, swelling, itching, and tenderness. This typically lasts for 2 to 3 days.
Generally, patients require 4 to 10 treatments depending on individual sensitivity to phosphatidylcholine. Patients generally begin to see changes in the treated area after 4 treatments, typically spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart.
Phosphatidylcholine is the chief component of soy lecithin, a natural ingredient that breaks down fat. Phosphatidylcholine has proven to be safe and effective for breaking down fat in localized areas of the body.

Mesotherapy is a safe, highly effective body contouring solution for reducing fat and removing cellulite in targeted body areas without going under the knife. Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, mesotherapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures including liposuction. In fact, mesotherapy is often the treatment of choice to correct lumps, divots, and unevenness that can develop as a result of liposuction surgery.
Mesotherapy treatments involve injecting a specific combination of natural plant extracts, pharmaceutical agents, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into your skin. When injected into targeted areas—such as love handles, belly pooch, saddle-bag thighs, or even a double chin—mesotherapy ingredients break down the fat cells in the layer of fat and connective tissue called the mesoderm. In addition, mesotherapy treats the cellulite directly by breaking up the connective tissue bands that trap fat and cause the dimpled effect. This helps prevent accumulation of new fat, leaving a smooth, dimple-free appearance on your skin.
Given its exceptional fat-reducing and rejuvenation capabilities, we have developed specific mesotherapy protocols to:
- Reduce cellulite and contour fat.
- Tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms, and hands.
- Treat stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles.
- Rejuvenate and hydrate aging skin.
For cellulite and spot fat reduction, patients typically see results after 3 to 4 treatments with a more smooth, firm, and slim appearance of the skin.
Skin Tightening & Rejuvenation
Genetics, aging, and weight loss all can leave you with areas of uneven skin texture or that “orange-peel” appearance. Our laser skin tightening and skin rejuvenation treatments use laser energy to stimulate your skin’s natural regeneration of collagen and elastin. The resulting increase in collagen helps minimize sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, and other irregularities, giving you more youthful-looking, smooth, and healthy skin.
We often recommend a series of laser skin tightening treatments in conjunction with our weight loss programs and cellulite treatments to produce the most dramatic results.
These laser treatments are perfect for all skin types and almost anywhere on your body, including face, neck and décolleté, abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, and knees. Treatment programs vary with each patient, but we typically recommend 4 to 6 treatments that are spaced one month apart to achieve optimal results.
