Mesotherapy involves a simple series of injections which help break down unwanted small localized areas of fat. This process of breaking down body fat is referred to as lipolysis.
This method of spot fat reduction by injecting solutions into the skin is incorporated in many name-recognized procedures.
Today, mesotherapy is used to:
remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
fade wrinkles and lines
tighten loose skin
recontour the body
lighten pigmented skin
During your treatment, the solution is injected directly into the fat layers and connective tissue. The injection is relatively painless though some patients prefer the use of a numbing cream. The medication produces a chemical reaction in conjunction with the body's physiology to harden the fat cell wall and begin a breakdown of localized areas of fat.
Benefits from each injection should be evident within three weeks of the treatment. Several treatments, four to six weeks apart, are often required to produce a fully satisfactory result.
