Mesotherapy Defined

Mesotherapy is a new technique used by cosmetic surgeons to reduce the appearance of aging, rejuvenate the skin, treat minor blemishes and target cellulite. Mesotherapy is popular is eliminating the visible signs of facial aging.

A Good Candidate For Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a suitable treatment for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin or remove cellulite. Treatment can be started at any age and as it is not a one-time cure, to see the results you want you will likely need more than one session.

Mesotherapy Procedure

Mesotherapy treatment works by injecting small amounts of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins and minerals into the skin. The injections are given using a Meso gun which allows multiple injections to be performed at one time with no pain. Patients may be given 50 to 150 injections during one session.

The combination of medicines injected are specifically formulated for each problem. Mesotherapy can be used as an alternative to Botox to reduce fine lines and the appearance of tired, aging skin or can be used instead of liposuction to remove cellulite and localized deposits of fatty tissue.  
Mesotherapy is becoming increasingly common for people who want to help the skin repair itself naturally. The combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids injected during Mesotherapy increase the circulation of oxygen around the body making skin appear refreshed and younger.

Mesotherapy can provide a solution to weight loss by completely breaking down localized deposits of fat which naturally drain out of the body. As a treatment for cellulite, mesotherapy is the only cosmetic procedure believed to provide permanent results. 

Mesotherapy can also be used to firm and tighten the skin instead of more invasive cosmetic surgery procedures.
