How Does Mesotherapy Work?
Mesotherapy is the micro-injection of traditional medication, homeopathic medication, and vitamins into the mesoderm, or middle layer of skin, acting as a "medicinal bullet" that is delivered directly to a target in the body.
Orally administered medication, on the other hand, is distributed throughout the body. Mesotherapy allows a much smaller dose of the same medicine to be injected directly at the site of the problem, into the skin, with the skin acting as an efficient time-release delivery system.
Developed in France by Dr. Michel Pistor, Mesotherapy has been performed there since 1952 with great
success. Only recently has it migrated to the U.S. where practitioners and patients sing its praises. Originally Dr Michel Pistor devised this medical technique to treat such conditions as Rheumatology, Sports Traumatology, Infectious diseases, vascular diseases and the improvement of circulation, Mesotherapy has subsequently been extremely successful in the treatment of aesthetic conditions. Cellulite/Orange Peel Effect and Weight loss can be effectively managed with the use of Mesotherapy. The treatment stimulates the mesoderm, or middle layer of the skin, which in turn helps to disburse the cellulite.
Mesotherapy for Getting Rid of Cellulite
Mesotherapy can be used to eliminate cellulite on the legs and buttocks. By repairing the connective tissue, shrinking the fat cells and increasing circulation, Mesotherapy can rid these areas of the "orange peel" like skin, thus revealing a smoother and more even -toned appearance. The average patient generally requires 10-15 weekly treatments in order to achieve these results.
Mesotherapy for Weight Loss and Spot Reduction
The same principles that allow Mesotherapy to eliminate cellulite can be used to rid other areas of the body
of excess fat. Mesotherapy can be used to eliminate double chins, "love handles" and any other area where your body pockets fat. Mesotherapy is a vast improvement over other treatments such as liposuction
because it is a non-surgical procedure that does not require hospital admittance, general anesthesia, or downtime. The fat deposits flush out of specific areas and the body does not gain the weight back in other ares, which often happens after liposuction.
Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation
Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesolift process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. As your skin ages, circulation decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hinders your body's ability to flush out toxins. This is what drives premature aging and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.
After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Mesotherapy can be used a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimens, including Botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts.
Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. The procedure can be used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms and hands. In Europe, women often start treatments in their thirties, but Mesotherapy can prove valuable during any stage of a woman's life.
Using a Mesotherapuetic process known as Mesolift, vitamin injections under the skin rejuvenate cells, activating them metabolically by stimulating natural collagen and elastin production. This process not only reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles, but also helps prevent new ones from forming. Mesolift can help "age-proof" patients of any age
- some patients start in their mid-20s, others in the 60s or 70s. Approximately 4-6 consecutive treatments on the face, neck, arms and hands are recommended to maintain the skin's youthful appearance, with a follow-up visit once every three to four months.
