Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that was pioneered by a French physician in 1952 and integrated into traditional medicine in the mid 80”s. Micro-injections of conventional medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids are directed into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) to rejuvenate aging skin, for spot weight reduction or cellulite. The treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones.
Mesotherapy is a highly effective rejuvenating treatment that can tone and tighten sagging skin on the face, neck and chest. The combination of ingredients nourishes the skin, promotes the production of collagen and elastin, inhibits melanin and regulates microcirculation.
For those patients seeking weight loss, Mesotherapy is a revolutionary and essential tool. In blocking the signals of fat accumulation simultaneously triggering the release of stored fat it modifies the biology of the fat cell. Treatment can be targeted at the most problematic areas (saddlebags, hops, thighs, waist, love handles, back and chin).
Cellulite affects the majority of women and is caused by poor circulation, fat herniation, a weakening of connective tissues, lymphatic congestion and hormonal imbalances. Mesotherapy can assist in correcting this problem by improving circulation, strengthening connective tissues, and dissolving excess fat.
What results can I expect?
The results obtained with Mesotherapy can be dramatic. After a series of treatments, generally over a three month period, patients notice improvement in skin quality, reduced dimpling of the skin and weight reduction.
How often is Mesotherapy administered?
For the face, 1 treatment every 1-2 weeks for a total of 4-10 sessions with maintenance every month. For weight reduction or cellulite, about 10 treatments over 20 weeks.
There is no downtime, but you should avoid sun exposure for some days after treatment.
Possible side effects?
Risks include bruising and allergic reactions to the injected mixture. Allergies to any medications must be mentioned to the attending therapist. For this reason, Mesotherapy should only be administered by a trained specialist.
