What Is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy (Meso-thera-pie) is a medical procedure that allows patients a non-invasive remedy to a variety of conditions, including
Unwanted fat
Wrinkles and aging of the skin
Redundant (sagging) skin
Aged hands
Excessive skin or fat on the neck
Mesotherapy involves injecting microscopic quantities of traditional medication, homeopathic medication, and vitamins into the mesoderm, or middle layer of skin, acting as a “medicinal bullet” that is delivered directly to a target in the body.
Orally administered medication, on the other hand, is distributed throughout the body. Mesotherapy allows a much smaller dose of the same medicine to be injected directly at the site of the problem, into the skin, with the skin acting as an efficient time-release delivery system. This stimulates the body to heal itself in those targeted areas.
Mesotherapy can be used to treat cellulite on the legs, buttocks, and various parts of the body. By repairing the connective tissue, shrinking the fat cells and increasing circulation, it can rid these areas of the “orange peel” like skin, thus revealing a smoother and more even-toned appearance.
The same principles that help to reduce or eliminate cellulite can be used to treat other areas of the body of excess fat, for example, double chins, “love handles” and any other area where your body pockets fat.
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical procedure that does not require hospital admittance, general anesthesia, or downtime. It can promote weight loss. The fat deposits flush out of specific areas and the body does not gain the weight back in other areas.
Is Mesotherapy and
Lipodissolve the same therapy?
Mesotherapy and lipodissolve are entirely different. Mesotherapy refers to the process of injecting vitamins, homeopathic, or pharmaceutical agents to treat a specific region of the body. Lipodissolve is a term used to describe a formula that is used in mesotherapy.
When will I see results?
Results vary based on your body type and the condition being treated but on average, patients notice visible improvement in two to three sessions. In some instances, patients see results after the first session.
Will the results last?
The results do last, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, we cannot stop the natural aging process that affects your appearance. For this reason, maintenance visits are recommended.
Are there any side effects?
A common side effect of is bruising, which generally resolves over one week. To speed up the healing process, we recommend that the homeopathic supplement, arnica, be taken either orally or applied topically on a daily basis. Temporary soreness may also occur.
Are there any restrictions?
General restrictions vary with conditions treated and will be discussed before treatments are administered. Patients are advised not to wear makeup for at least four hours after facial treatments, not to take hot showers for at least six to eight hours, and not to exercise vigorously for at least 48 hours after Cellulysis treatments. Prior to treatment, patients are recommended to eat a meal high in protein and to avoid caffeine.
