What is Mesotherapy?
Aesthetic Mesotherapy is a safe, non-surgical technique which was originated in France by Dr. Michel Pistor and has been performed with great success on both men and women throughout Europe since the 1950's.
Over the past 50+ years, in excess of 15,000 physicians world-wide have used Aesthetic Mesotherapy on a daily basis for a variety of purposes, including spot weight reduction, cellulite reduction, scar revision and wrinkle elimination.
The treatment itself consists of a series of tiny injections (about the size of an eyelash) of a mixture made up of medicines and natural remedies, such as vitamins and plant extracts, each formulated differently to treat a specific condition at the site of the problem..

Sometimes, when two or more problems exist within the same area, a mixture can even be derived to treat both at the same time!
Fore instance, in the case of fat and cellulite reduction, two of the more common uses of Aesthetic Mesotherapy, the specially formulated mixture first enters the layer of fat and connective tissue within the problem area (which is located directly below the skin's surface) and begins to slowly dissolve the surrounding fat, causing the fat cells themselves to actually shrink! This is known as "spot fat reduction" and is the optimal non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Simultaneously, in addition to melting the trapped fat, the fibrous connective tissue bands that cause the cellulite and "dimpling" effect throughout your problem area is destroyed as well, leaving behind smooth, dimple-free skin that you'll love to show off!

Typically, 8 to 12 visits are required to achieve this goal, with many patients noticing visible changes within the treated area after just the first visit! Furthermore, as with all types of Aesthetic Mesotherapy treatments, since the medicines continue to work even days after a treatment is given, the results are progressive, with the effects being more and more noticeable as the treatments go on. And there's more good news...

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, in excess of 15,000 physicians world-wide have used Mesotherapy on a daily basis for a variety of purposes, including weight loss, spot weight reduction, cellulite reduction, scar revision and wrinkle elimination.
In 1987, the French Academy of Medicine recognized Mesotherapy as an inherent part of traditional medicine. The International Society of Mesotherapy encompasses 14 countries throughout Europe and South America.
In Mesotherapy, very small doses of different medications are administered in specific areas, depending on the condition being treated. The medicines and plant extracts that are used are obtained from pharmaceutical companies in the United States. All medicines used are FDA-approved for their use. In combination, medicines for Mesotherapy are used for off-label purposes. A recent illustration of this distinction is Botox. Although Botox was FDA approved for controlling muscle spasms, the medical community embraced it for its cosmetic properties of controlling wrinkles. For many years, plastic surgeons and dermatologists used Botox for off-label purposes.
HOW DOES MESOTHERAPY WORK?
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, as occurs when fat is broken down during typical weight loss, is carried through the bloodstream and excreted by kidneys and bowel.
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 can help destroy the connective tissue bands and melt the trapped fat, creating a smooth, dimple-free appearance.
TECHIQUES OF MESOTHERAPY
Using a very tiny needle (0.4 to 0.6 cm or the size of a eyelash), the medication is injected into the mesoderm relatively painlessly. This occurs because the needle is specially manufactured to deliver the medicine in a series of painless injections in a typical treatment. Sometimes the technique of "multi-pricking" is used, where a number of swift, painless injections are concentrated in a specific area. Although "multi-pricking" can be done by hand, a mechanical delivery system may also be used that delivers the medicine in a more accurate fashion with even less discomfort to the patient. Patients have universally responded that the treatments cause less pain than a momentary, light pinch.
All patients undergoing Mesotherapy will be asked to follow a low glycemic index,, natural healthy diet, which will be easy to follow. Because toxins are eliminated as fat is broken down lots of water compsumtion is needed to flush these substances out of the body. Exercise is needed to circulate the medications used, with either walking or another form of aerobic activity, three times a week.
WHO CAN HAVE MESOTHERAPY?
Adults over the ages of 18 and in good health are candidates for Mesotherapy for weight loss, spot weight reduction, and cellulite reduction. Patients who are pregnant, on blood thinners, are insulin-dependent diabetics, on medication for heart arrhythmias, have severe heart disease or have cancer are not candidates for cosmetic Mesotherapy. We are happy to discuss your medical problems and medications during a consultation.
WHO CANNOT HAVE MESOTHERAPY?
- Patients Who Are Pregnant Or Breastfeeding
- Insulin Dependent Diabetics
- History Of Stroke
- History Of Recent Cancer
- History Of Blood Clots
- Patients On Multiple Medications For Heart Disease; any Active Skin Or General Disease
TYPICAL RESULTS OF MESOTHERAPY
Mesotherapy For overall weight loss:
As mesotherapy dissolves fat, inches can be lost. With those loss of inches goes the loss of weight from the reduction of fat and water retained in the tissue.
Mesotherapy is an effective solution that reduces dimpling and misshapen fat under the skin. Cellulite is an accumulation of fat, fluid, and toxins trapped in a hardened network of connective tissue fibers in the Mesoderm layer. The fat cells inflate, causing a rippling and puckering of the skin, commonly referred to as orange peel skin. Lymphatic and venous circulation is poor in these areas. Mesotherapy is used to cause an increase in venous and lymphatic flow, as well as the elimination of fat and dimpling in the area. A patient's skin appears significantly smoother.
