LipoTherapy, a form of mesotherapy, is an alternative treatment for cellulite and localized fat deposits. Injections of phosphatidylcholine, a fat melting substance, mixed with powerful enzymes and other medications are given every other week for 2-8 treatments. While this therapy is new in the United States, the French Society of Mesotherapy has been in existence since 1964. Mesotherapy is an effective way to lose fat without surgery, anesthesia or dieting. Multiple injections force the fat from the adipose site, which is melted away and excreted by the body. Dr. Simmons is one of a select few Physicians to be board certified in mesotherapy.
