What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a technique, invented in 1952 by Dr. Michel Pistor, where medication is injected into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. Over the past 50+ years, an excess of 15,000 physicians world-wide have used Mesotherapy on a daily basis for a variety of purposes, including overall weight loss, spot weight reduction, cellulite reduction, hair loss, scar revision and wrinkle elimination. Mesotherapy is also used to correct unevenness, lumps, or divots that develop after liposuction.
The medications that are used in Mesotherapy melt the fat beneath the skin and shrink the fat cells in the Scarpa’s fascia layer. The fat dissolves and is excreted by the kidneys and the bowel without any changes in your bowel habits.
Cellulite is caused by connective tissue bands that hold down the skin, trapping the fat and thereby causing the “dimpling” effect. The medications used in Mesotherapy destroy the connective tissue bands and melt the trapped fat, creating a smooth, dimple-free appearance.
For cellulite, weight loss, and spot weight reduction, the medications are injected directly to the areas being treated. Treatments are administered weekly, and patients usually begin seeing results by the fourth treatment. After 10 treatments, patients see a significant decrease in size, improved skin tone, and smoothing of cellulite. Typically patients lose 4 to 10 inches in 10 weeks.
Many patients develop unevenness, divots, or lumps after undergoing liposuction. These areas can be successfully treated with Mesotherapy. The scar tissue that forms under the skin after liposuction is directly targeted and dissolved. Patients see and feel smoothing of divots and lumps, and the unevenness resolves.
