What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is an aesthetic medical specialty, which involves injecting microscopic quantities of pharmaceutical agents, natural plant extracts, homeopathic agents, and vitamins into the skin. The Physician selects a custom formula to treat your condition. Mesotherapy can be effectively used to treat cellulite, body sculpting, weight loss, and rejuvenation of the skin. Meso pain management is evaluated on an individual basis.
What are the benefits of Mesotherapy over Liposuction?
Liposuction cannot be used to treat cellulite and in fact often ends up making the cellulite more prominent. Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, resulting in a smoother skin surface. Mesotherapy is effective in targeted fat reduction or body sclupting, like “love handles” or "saddlebags". Liposuction removes fat cells and subsequent weight gain is mal-distributed in the remaining adipose fat cells such as arms, neck and axillas. Mesotherapy removes fat from the cells and subsequent weight loss is symmetrical. Liposuction requires three weeks of downtime and elastic garments, Mesotherapy requires no downtime and loose, comfortable clothing. Liposuction has significant bruising and post-operative pain, Mesotherapy minimal bruising. Liposuction is a surgical procedure requiring general anesthesia, surgery center admittance, and surgical recovery. Mesotherapy is a non-invasive procedure performed in the privacy of The MesoSphere™ Medical Center.
How Does Mesotherapy Work On Cellulite/Fat?
Cellulite treatment includes treating several factors. The physician will create a personalized custom formula specific to your graded stage of cellulite. Components of the solutions utilized with the MesoJect System™ dissolve the fat (induce lipolysis) in the cellulite, invigorate the impaired circulation with venous and lymphatic flow, and induce cellulysis of the damaged connective tissue. The aesthetic appearance is smoothing and contouring of the skin surface. Mesotherapy is the most effective Cellulite treatment available today and may be performed on any affected part of the body. Meso-Cellulite™ treatment is a more permanent solution.
How Does Mesotherapy Work On Skin Rejuvenation & Wrinkle Prevention?
Meso-Skin™ mesotherapy utilizes Vitamin and antioxidant injections under the skin to makes the cells more active metabolically, stimulate both collagen and elastin production, creating a skin rejuvenation process. For wrinkle prevention, you can start in your mid- twenties with Mesotherapy vitamin treatments to prevent wrinkles from forming. Meso-SkinRejuv™ Treatments of the face, neck, and hands are recommended up to four times per year. The physician will recommend topical agents for daily care between mesotherapy treatments. The facial Brow MesoLift is performed in conjunction with facial rejuvenation and may be combined with Botox Cosmetic® and Hylaform® fillers.
How Does Mesotherapy Work On Weight Loss & Spot Reduction?
Meso-Sculpt™ mesotherapy may target specific areas or spots where your body stores excessive fat. The Meso Vari-Ject System™ disperses customized formulas as medically directed micro-injections to a specific area, blocks the cells from storing new fat and helps break down the existing stored fat cells, and metabolize the fat (lipolysis). Your body then metabolizes the dissolved fat products of fatty acids, glyerol and water via invigorated venous and lymphatic circulation. Meso-Sculpt™ spot reduction can be used for double chins, love handles, saddlebags, inner thighs, inner knees, and any other area where your body stores fat.
How many treatments will I need?
It will vary based on your personal treatment goals, medical recommendations, and areas of the body and extent of the cellulite/fat/skin/weight to be treated. The number of visits ranges from approximately six to sixteen. Longterm weight loss from exogenous obesity levels may require weekly treatment for several months, personalized to the client's specific goals, supported by daily exercise, diet management, and personalized vitamin supplements.
How fast will I see results?
Results vary, according to your body type, treatment goals, and the severity of the problem. Often, clients report seeing results within two or three sessions. For certain conditions, you may appreciate immediate results. Clients with regular exercise programs and responsible food management habits seem to achieve optimal results sooner.
Will the results last?
Yes, the results will last. Meso-Cellulite™ is a permanent solution to cellulite. Meso-Sculpt™ or targeted body sculpting and spot fat reduction, including weight loss are effective treatments. However, keep in mind that maintaining your weight loss and optimal sculpting result requires consistent exercise (with cardio and light resistence training) and consistent food management discipline (emphasis on lean protein and low glycemic carbohydrates). You may elect to have touch up treatments from time-to-time. Although aging is a dynamic process, you can benefit from mesotherapy as an important anti-aging and preventive medicine strategy.
Are the treatments painful?
We use topical triple anesthetic gel on all of our patients to assure a comfortable mesotherapy treatment. Intravenous conscious sedation, including pulse oximetry, is also available at The MesoSphere™ Medical Center. Clients who have treatment au natural sans gel may slightly feel the 4 mm - 6 mm micro injections with the "le pinch an inch" technique. We strive to assure your Mesotherapy experience will be comfortable, considerate, and effective.
Are there any side effects?
The most frequent side effect is bruising. You may experience some bruising, which resolves over approximately one week. The MesoSphere™ recommends using arnica tablets sublingual, and grape seed extract supplements to minimize any bruising. Topical ointments such as hydrocortisone and Traumeel are further used to decrease bruising events.
Who Can Have Mesotherapy
Generally, most healthy adults between 18 to 80 may have mesotherapy for body sculpting and weight loss, cellulite treatment, and mesolift skin rejuvenation. Exclusion criteria are in place and preclude those patients confronted with moderately severe heart disease, insulin-dependent diabetes, on blood thinners or arrhythmia medications, immune-compromised and/ or organ transplant recipients, and pregnancy. Cancer patients in remission must be carefully evaulated in conjuction with their personal oncologist's recommendations. With occasional exception, most likely this group is excluded from treatment. You may be asked for a medical clearance letter from your personal physician for more complex problems. Hypertension must be controlled on medication. Thoughtful consideration is given to every patient request for treatment.
