Q. How does mesotherapy work

A. Mesotherapy is a procedure designed to be delivered by two transdermal techniques. The first involves injecting a small customized mixture of conventional medications, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes into the mesoderm or middle layer of skin with tiny needles. The second procedure delivers the same mixture through a needless procedure of introphoresis by incorporating traditional Microdermabrasian with Dermoelectroportaion. Both procedures dissolve your fat cells but Needleless Mesotherapy minimizes skin trauma and possible infection disease hazards. Below are answers to some of the most common patient questions.

Q. Is mesotherapy different from liposuction

A. Yes, Mesotherapy is a non-surgical medical treatment that removes the fat from the fat cell where as Liposuction removes the entire fat cell. Also, Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and recovery time, while Mesotherapy does not require either. Even with these advantages, Mesotherapy is not a replacement for liposuction, it is simply a reduction of small areas of unwanted fat spots, cellulite, and is a more gradual fat reduction process compared with the immediate results of Liposuction.

Mesotherapy has shown excellent results to smoothen and reduce uneven fat spots that may persist after liposuction, avoiding the need for additional touch-up liposuction procedures. Mesotherapy and liposuction are not competitive procedures but, rather, they complement each other. In our experience, mesotherapy injections have shown great results when combined with liposuction. Mesotherapy is an excellent initial alternative to liposuction for minor to medium body sculpting of specific areas of the body like stomach, upper arms, thighs, chin, hips, and so forth. Mesotherapy is best suited for men and women who are not excessively overweight but instead have certain problem areas with stubborn fat that can no longer be reduced by diet and exercise. Patients who are hesitant to undergo a surgical procedure find Mesotherapy to be a better option to Liposuction.

Q. Will the fat in the treated areas return?

A. Mesotherapy does not destroy the fat cell but simply removes the fat from the cell. As a result if there is weight gain after the treatment, fat may return to the treated area. The failure rate of mesotherapy has shown to be low (8%). Exercise and diet in addition to mesotherapy have shown the best long-term results.

Q. Can I go back to work after the treatment?

A. Yes, this office procedure takes about 30 minutes per session and requires little preparation or recovery time. No heavy bandage or compression girdles are required.

Q. How many treatments are required before I see results?

A. It depends on the patient's body and extent of the fat/cellulite/skin to be treated. While some patients may see results after one treatment most patients require three to five before they see significant results. Mesotherapy is more about losing inches than losing large amounts of weight so the course of the treatments patients will notice their clothes becoming looser and they will appear to get thinner.

Also, proper dietary lifestyle, nutritional supplementation, and keeping up with treatments are essential to achieve the best long-term results. Even though aging is a dynamic process that cannot be stopped, Mesotherapy is a wonderfully affective technique to slow it down.

Q. Who is not a candidate for mesotherapy?

A. Patients who:

  • Are pregnant
  • Are dependent on insulin
  • Suffer from severe heart disease
  • Taking blood thinning medications
  • Have a history of stroke or ischemic attack
  • Have been recently diagnosed with cancer
  • Have cutaneous lesions
  • Have an allergy to mesotherapy components
