Mesotherapy, also known as Lipodissolve, is a series of injections in a particular area in which the patient would like to sculpt. While the Lipodissolve treatment isn’t necessarily FDA approved, the treatment is still well-known and commonly practiced around the world and safely in our office. This treatment is not meant to reverse obesity, but rather assist patients that have met their desired weight and are looking to tone. The preferred candidate would have a BMI that’s less than 30. It’s commonly used on the arms, chin, stomach area and legs- making it a great option for removing cellulite.
The procedure itself involves the use of a chemical solution that is injected into targeted areas for treatment; which takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the treatment area. The solution dissolves the bonds between fat molecules, thus turning the fat into a liquid. The fat will be disposed of naturally with the rest of the body’s waste gradually in the weeks following the treatment.
