My name is Christine Marquette and I'm a registered and licensed dietitian with Marquette Nutrition and Fitness and I'm going to talk to you about Mesotherapy. Mesotherapy is actually a type of therapy that was originated in Frances. It was actually recognized as part of traditional medicine in around 1985 in France and it actually incorporates a variety of different types of herbs and medicines. They are all injectables that are injected under the epidermis into the fatty tissue and can be used to treat a variety of conditions. However, in the United States it is most associated with reducing body fat and one of the major products in this line of Mesotherapy is called Lippodissolve. This particular type of therapy injects a variety again of different medications and herbs under the skin into the fatty tissue and it basically dissolves the fat. However, there isn't a lot of knowledge in exactly what happens to this fat. It actually has been shown that it does dissolve the fat but we don't really know where it goes. We don't know if it goes into the liver, if it goes into the kidneys, if it goes into the blood stream. We really don't know what is happening to that dissolved fat. So for that reason it is still considered an experimental procedure. The side effects or potential side effects are really unknown. There haven't been any human trial to determine if there are any negative side effects from this particular therapy so it is something that if you choose to use Mesotherapy for reduction of body fat do so with extreme caution, make sure that you have it done by a licensed physician, make sure you ask what exactly is being injected into your body because again we don't really know as far as Mesotherapy and losing body fat what the potential side effects are.
