Introduced to the United States in the 1990’s, Mesotherapy has a diverse range of uses. The process can be used to fight the signs of aging, reduce the appearance of cellulite, promote weight loss, and eliminate localized fat deposits. “Medicinal bullets” are delivered directly into the middle layer of the skin specific to the area and condition wishing to be treated.
How Does It Work?
When administering Mesotherapy, doctors will formulate a specific combination of medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids specially designed to achieve your desired results. Mesotherapy gets its name from “mesoderm,” the layer of the skin in which this formula is injected. It is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures and requires no anesthesia or lengthy recovery time.
Areas of Improvement
The natural process of Mesotherapy can be used in a number of ways to treat a number of areas. Patients often get injections into their face and skin to fight the signs of aging. When administering the formula into larger areas like the buttocks and thighs, Mesotherapy can reduce the visibility of cellulite and fatty deposits. Your doctor will discuss with you a plan of action to achieve your desired results.
How Popular Is It?
Mesotherapy was first recognized by the French National Academy of Medicine in 1986. In the 25 years that it has been available, the popularity of the procedure has grown at a staggering rate. Each day, thousands of doctors worldwide use Mesotherapy to help tens of thousands of patients
Risks and Recovery Times
Mesotherapy is all natural, and one of the only side effects reported has been bruising of the injected area. This usually resolves itself within a week. Patients may experience soreness, but it will subside in 24-48 hours. Recovery time depends on the procedure, but you will not feel any discomfort afterwards and will be able to resume all normal activities within a day.
