Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment for localized fat areas. It is an effective process that enzymatically shrinks fat and cellulite through a series of micro-injections of very small doses of Mesotherapy medications by one of our medical providers. The affected fat cells are removed by body naturally. It has been very popular in Europe for years. It is minimally invasive, affordable and safe.
How the Mesotherapy Body Contouring Works
Mesotherapy involves the injection of certain medications into the mesoderm layer of the skin. The medication is used to emulsify and destroy fat cells by destroying the fat cell membrane. Once the mechanism of action occurs, the fat is absorbed back into the body. Phosphatidylcholine is the active ingredient and each injection covers a treatment area about the size of a quarter. Multiple injections (# of treatments) are required and may not work effectively on older patients, lax skin, and for patients looking for instant gratification. The treatments are very effective but are a series of injections over a period of at least a month. This is one of the most effective treatments for localized fat and results are dependent upon compliance of following through the series of injections.
Mesotherapy is a very good treatment for localized fat deposits of the chin, saddle bag, abdomen, and thighs.. Most areas that of unwanted fat treated are:
- Lower eyelid fat pad
- Love Handles
- Bra Lines
- Saddle Bag Areas
What does the Treatment Involve?
The procedure itself takes around 5-10 minutes and involves tiny injections into the mesoderm (fat layer under the skin). Mesotherapy starts to work within days, with visible results by 30 days when the treatment can be repeated until the desired results. The number of mesotherapy sessions depends on the area treated, with most results achieved after 3 treatments.
We administer the treatments every 4 weeks, and many patients report that they have lost anywhere from two to three inches off of their abdomen, hips, and thighs after few sessions. It is a very well tolerated procedure by most and clients report only a pinprick feeling during the procedure due to the fine needles used. After the procedure one can experience temporary itching and redness at the injection site and bruising that if it occurs, fades within a week.
This is a no down time, very affordable non-surgical option to treat localized fat pockets and allows patients to return to their normal routine immediately.
