New Solutions for Stubborn Fat

New Solutions for Stubborn Fat

Do you have cellulite or an area of stubborn fat that won’t budge no matter what you do?  Did you know that about 80% of women have cellulite and it’s a normal part of the way we’re made?   I will be offering a new treatment to improve the appearance of cellulite and reduce areas of fat accumulation.   If you are most women out there, and probably 50% of men out there, you likely have one of those problem areas and LipoDissolve Lipotherapy may be for you.   No, it is not Cool Sculpting.  It is way cooler!  LOL.  It can actually do larger areas than Cool Sculpting.  Each 1 body area is about the size of a sheet of paper.  Two body areas are allowable to be done in one session at a time.  If you want more done, then at least a week needs to be between sessions.   The largest applicator Cool Sculpting uses is about the size of a stick of butter.  I don’t know about you but I have a fat pad on my inner thigh bigger than that.

This treatment is ideal for those of normal body weight and in the overweight category only (except the double chin/jowls and undereye fat pads, which anyone can do) and are dedicated to eating a high protein, low fat diet to help maintain and continue to improve their lean body weight to fat ratio.  The following areas and others can be treated with this injectable treatment:

  • Double chin and Jowls
  • Eye Pads (if you have that bulging fat in the under eye area all the time)
  • Upper Arms
  • Armpit Flank
  • Bra Bulge Area
  • Buffalo Hump
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Love Handles
  • Hips
  • Thighs (fat accumulation areas)
  • Saddlebags
  • Knees

This treatments consists of injecting a solution into the fatty tissue in several places.  This is done in 3-6 sessions on average to cause fat to dissolve in the areas desired about every 4-5 weeks until the desired effect is met.    This is not done for weight loss, but for spot fat reduction.  If you are obese, then weight loss through a healthy diet and exercise plan is key for weight loss.  Other exclusions for treatment are pregnancy and breastfeeding or desiring pregnancy within the next 3 months.  There are others as well, and a full list can be given if requested, but this is a wonderful treatment for those who have stubborn areas of fat accumulation that just don’t want to budge and don’t have loose skin with it or just prefer to lose the bulge and want to look good in clothes. 

It is a quick, easy treatment with nice results. 

If you’d like to come in for a visit or consult to see if you’d be a good candidate, winter is the perfect time to get started with this new treatment I’m offering.

We hope to see you or hear from you soon.
