Mesotherapy is a non-surgical way to promote weight loss through injections. The injections are a mixture of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, FDA approved medicines and vitamins. Mesotherapy can help to remove cellulite, kick-start weight loss, and rejuvenate the skin. It is a safe, non-invasive alternative to liposuction that has been used for over 50 years.
Mesotherapy techniques work by injecting this mixture under the skin to target the surrounding fat and cellulite. It then causes the targeted tissue to die. The dead tissue naturally dissolves and is removed from the body through the waste system. Patients normally see results within two to three visits, though some patients have seen results after the first treatment.
After receiving mesotherapy treatment, your skin will be tighter, smoother and slimmer. This treatment focuses on losing inches around the waist, rather than over all weight loss. To maintain the lost inches, it is important to exercise, eat healthy and take nutritional supplements if directed to by your doctor.
Additionally, mesotherapy is painless, due to the fact that anesthetic creams are applied to the skin prior to the injection. No scarring will occur from the treatment, though you may experience swelling or bruising. There is no need to be sedated for the procedure. After a treatment, you may be asked to avoid caffeine and to eat a high protein meal to assist with the effectiveness of the procedure. Depending on what area of the body the treatment focuses on, you may be asked to avoid a hot shower for six to eight hours and refrain from using makeup for at least four hours after the visit.
Mesotherapy is normally used on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and sometimes on the face. However, it may be appropriate to use other places. To determine where it can be used, you need to speak with a doctor.
