While a nutritionally balanced diet and exercise offer a clear path to weight loss, often times it’s not enough to eliminate those stubborn fat pockets around the midsection, buttocks, thighs, and arms or reduce unsightly cellulite. Why not get your body bikini-ready now by taking the fast track to losing excess body fat, reducing cellulite and tightening and firming your entire body?
At The Laser & Skin Care Clinic, we offer both women and men several safe and effective non-surgical cosmetic approaches for reducing localized fat deposits, sculpting areas of fat accumulation, and removing cellulite to promote a smooth, slim appearance. Our body-shaping programs also include laser treatments and mesotherapy to help tone and tighten loose skin.

Mesotherapy and Lipodissolve
Mesotherapy and lipodissolve are safe and non-surgical cosmetic approaches for reducing localized fat deposits, reducing cellulite and tightening and firming skin. Lipodissolve involves a series of small injections used to sculpt areas where stubborn body fat accumulates and does not easily respond to exercise and diet alone. 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 targeted areas—such as love handles, belly fat, saddle-bag thighs, or even a double chin. In addition, mesotherapy treats cellulite 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 lipodissolve and 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.
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. Generally, patients require 4 to 10 treatments typically spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart and they begin to see changes in the treated area after their 4th treatment.

Laser Skin Tightening & Rejuvenation
Genetics, aging, and weight loss can all 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.
Medical Weight Loss
Whether you have been battling your weight for a long time or simply wanting to drop those extra pounds that never seem to go away we offer medically based Real Weight Loss solutions. Our weight loss program is called just that “Real Weight Loss.” It is a scientifically focused, customized weight loss program that addresses the underlying issues that have caused people to gain weight, make them unable to lose weight, or lead them to unhealthy choices to lose or maintain their weight such as fad diets and excessive exercise. “Real Weight Loss” offers answers to questions such as:
“Why did I gain all this weight when I don’t overeat?”
“Why do I lose weight so slowly or not at all?”
“What is the role of exercise in weight loss?”
“Why do I eat less than everyone else and still gain weight?”
“Why am I gaining weight as I’m getting older when I’m eating less and exercising more?”
“Why do I gain weight when I’m stressed even though I don’t over eat?”
“Why are my post-pregnancy pounds so hard to get rid of?”
Dr. Ruthie Harper offers the most advanced and successful medical weight loss program available today. She has had both short and long term success with hundreds of patient through her customized weight loss solutions. She focuses on the causes of weight gain rather than simply “cutting calories and recommending more exercise” and shows you how current weight loss science supports the fact that cutting calories and increasing exercise simply does not work for long term “Real Weight Loss”.
“Real Weight Loss” is a medically supervised program that delivers the following significant health benefits:
- Lose fat quickly, on average .5 to 2 pounds per day, without hunger or craving issues.
- Reset your metabolism to a higher level that works more effectively and efficiently to burn excess body fat and stay lean long after completing the program.
- Lose unhealthy body fat while maintaining healthy lean body mass.
- Decrease risk of disease (hypertension, diabetes, heart disease) by reducing unhealthy abdominal fat around your organs.
- Promote healing of your thyroid, adrenal, and immune systems by eliminating food allergy triggers and reducing stress on your gastrointestinal tract.
- Identify and address the underlying behavioral and metabolic issues that caused you to gain weight in the first place.
- Keep the weight off that you lose—making you one of the few to achieve long-term weight loss success!
