Weight Loss Q & A
What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a cutting-edge treatment developed in France. It uses a series of safe injections to permanently melt away fatty deposits and soften skin irregularities that cause cellulite. Dr. Chitalia and his team use mesotherapy to improve:
- Double chin
- Fat pockets under eyes
- Soft, sagging jawline
- Fatty bulges on the abdomen
- Hip and leg fat
- Buttocks fat
- Underarm and bra fat
Mesotherapy is significantly less invasive than surgical liposuction and has no downtime.
How does mesotherapy melt away excess fat?
Dr. Chitalia injects a safe, food-grade emulsifier called PC/DC (50/42) into the layer of fat and connective tissue that lies beneath your skin. The emulsifier bonds with fat molecules in the treated bulge. Your body then absorbs and processes the emulsified fat, eliminating it through excretion.
You may need a series of five or more treatments to achieve your ideal results.
What are lipotropic injections?
Lipotropic injections include fat-burning ingredients such as the amino acid methionine, a form of Vitamin B called inositol, and the essential nutrient choline, which is also related to the B vitamins. The injections speed up your metabolism and boost your energy levels by increasing your liver’s efficiency and controlling the distribution of cholesterol.
Lipotropic injections help your body release and process excess fatty deposits in your abdomen, thighs, double chin, and other areas. Dr. Chitalia recommends combining lipotropic injections with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
How can I eliminate cellulite?
Cellulite isn’t just a type of fat, it’s a condition that affects your skin. Cellulite dimpling begins in the fatty layer beneath your skin. When the fat cells expand, they create pressure on connective tissues called septae.
The pressure causes the septae to stiffen and pull downward on your skin, which in turn pushes the fat upward. Mesotherapy injections break up the fat and revascularizes the stiffened septae. The rejuvenated tissues soften up, the excess fat is whisked away, and your skin softens and smooths out.
How can I keep my new figure?
If you have a history of yo-yo dieting, Dr. Chitalia helps you make lifestyle changes to better regulate your weight. A healthy diet and regular exercise are essential parts of benefitting from mesotherapy or lipotropic injections.
