In topical preparations, the active ingredient paeoniflorin may be contained within nanospheres, such as albumin nanospheres. The PF-containing preparations may also include a permeant, such as azone. The method may be accompanied by the application of ultrasound to the area being treated prior to, during or after, or prior to, during, and after application of the paeoniflorin preparation to an area of the body in which fat reduction is desired. By way of example, the methods and preparations are effective for reducing targeted fat deposits at various anatomical sites of the body, such as the midsection ("love handles"), jowls, hips, arms, thighs and buttocks area.
