What is Mesotheraphy?
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical medical technique which was first introduced in France over 50 years ago. It is a virtually painless injection of vitamins, minerals medications and amino acids placed just under the surface of the skin to deliver corrective treatment to a specific area. With the skin as the direct vehicle by which the body receives its treatment, quick results are achieved. Mesotherapy has been used in Europe for different purposes, such as overall weight loss, spot weight reduction, hair loss, scar revision, cellulite reduction, wrinkle elimination and chronic pains like muscle spasms, migraines and arthritis, and even erectile dysfunction.
How does Mesotherapy work?
Fats in specific areas to be treated are dissolved by medications used in Mesotherapy. Dissolved fats are carried through the bloodstream and excreted by kidneys and bowel.
What is the procedure?
Mesotherapy treatment is a simple procedure. Once the skin is cleansed, a micro needle and syringe with the customized medications are placed into the skin over the problem area almost painlessly. The patient then lay still for few minutes to allow absorption of the medication. After a while, the treated area is dried and the patient may return to usual daily activity. Some patients may experience slight bruising, swelling and tenderness that disappear within few days.
What are the typical results of Mesotherapy?
For Body Sculpting (Lipodissolve/MesoSculpting): Mesosculpting is a virtually painless alternative to liposuction. It is a non-invasive procedure which removes fat from fat cells without the patient's downtime. Microinjections of individualized “fat burning” formula are given to melt down the fats into the areas being treated such as saddle bags, hips, thighs, waist, love handles, back fat and chin. A series of treatments (2-8) are given spaced one week apart. Results are considered permanent as long as the patient adheres to a proper nutrition and exercise regimen.
For Skin Rejuvenation (Mesolift): Mesolift infuses the dermis with potent vitamins, proteins and anti-oxidants to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. These facilitate the skin's ability to build collagen and elastin as well as hold onto moisture. Through direct application at the mesoderm for about 4-5 sessions, spaced one to two weeks apart, the skin becomes noticeably firm, youthful, radiant, and more hydrated.
For Cellulite: Cellulite commonly appears on the hips, buttocks and legs, but is not caused by being overweight. It is caused by connective tissue bands that hold down the skin, trapping the fat which caused the “dimple” effect. With Mesotherapy, these bulges are treated by removing the fibrotic, hardened connective tissue, dissolving excess fat deposits, improving blood flow to the area and lymphatic drainage. In about four weeks, the patient's skin appears significantly smoother, and dimple-free.
For Hair Restoration (MesoHair): Mesotherapy also works well in restoring thinning hair. Medications which are traditionally applied topically and/or taken orally are injected into the scalp where the extensive microcirculatory system then bathes each follicle. Through this, the medication is at full strength and does not get broken down by the liver or kidneys prior to reach the target hair follicle. The result is a significant decrease in hair loss and a fuller head of hair.
