  Common Questions about Mesotherapy

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a safe, minimally invasive procedure used to "melt away" fat, and reduce fat and cellulite. Fatty areas, like the abdomen, upper arms, and thighs are often the problem targets. Mesotherapy is an aesthetic medical specialty. It involves injecting microscopic quantities of a variety of pharmaceutical agents, natural plant extracts, homeopathic agents, and vitamins into the skin.

Some patients see results after one treatment session while others may require four to five treatments to begin to see results.

Mesotherapy is extraordinarily different than liposuction. Mesotherapy differentiates itself by involving no anesthesia and no surgical risk (since it is not surgery), mesotherapy requires no recovery time. Mesotherapy also removes the fat from the adipose cells without completely destroying them. This assists mesotherapy in giving it's natural appearance. If you gain weight after having mesotherapy, the fat will simply return to the treated area, unlike liposuction, where fat can start to occur in places that had been thin in the past, such as the arms, neck, face, and calves.

What are the benefits of Mesotherapy over surgical techniques such as liposuction?

Mesotherapy reduces fat in specific areas, a common example are “love handles”.

It does not require a hospital admission, general anesthesia, or loss of productive post procedure time.
