What is Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a medical specialty treatment  aimed at eliminating fat pockets in  problem areas of your body. It is also used to diminish wrinkles and unwanted signs of aging in the face and neck area.  It is administered via various microinjections containing various types of homeopathic medicines, vitamins, amino acids and minerals. It can be used to eliminate cellulite, promote weight loss and rejuvenate the hands and neck.

Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. The fat deposits are flushed from the body and do not reappear in other areas, which can happen with liposuction.

Mesotherapy is a painless procedure with no scarring,  although swelling and light bruising may appear in the area for a few days. You might feel a light pinching or burning sensation when injections are administered.

How does it work:  Mesotherapy treats three factors involved in cellulite formation. A specific formula is created to reduce the fat in your cellulite, improve impaired circulation and break down damaged connective tissue.  It also increases the blood and lymphatic flow, therefore smoothing the skins surface and reducing cellulite. The formula prevents cells from storing fat and helps break down existing fat cells. We can target love handles and any other areas that display fat pockets.

Sedation is not necessary and the patient can walk out a few moments after treatment and go on with their daily activities. Therefore there is no “recovery”  period with Mesotherapy other than the body working from the inside structures over time, thus affecting the outward appearance of the skin, such as tightening of the skin, removal of excess fat and cellulite.

Anyone is a candidate who is seeking a treatment option for cellulite, wrinkles, excess fat and sagging skin. Anyone who is interested in removing these without the use of anesthesia or surgery should consider Mesotherapy.

Results vary depending on body type and lifestyle. On average patients notice  a visible improvement after 2 to 3 sessions and gradually over a matter of weeks to months. Results will last especially if combined with proper nutrition and exercise. When it comes to unwanted body fat a healthy lifestyle will determine whether or not the treatments are long lasting.

Even though mesotherapy is new to the United States it has been used for the last 30 to 40 years in Europe and South America. Mesotherapy originated in France in the 1950’s and is quickly becoming the safer alternative to liposuction and plastic surgery.
