Mesotherapy 

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.

 

Mesotherapy is used to treat areas such as:

  • Upper and lower abdomen

    • Thighs

    • Upper arms

    • Fat bulges below the bra-line

    • "Love handles"

    • Saddlebags

    • Double chin

    • Residual fat deposits post-liposuction

  • reduce cellulite

  • fade wrinkles and lines

  • tighten loose skin

  • recontour the body

The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.

What's in the Injection?

The main ingredients used include:

- Phosphatidylcholine: natural lecithin which contains two unsaturated fatty acids ( Linoleic- and alpha Lionleic acids) extracted from the soy plant.

- Multivitamins

- Saline

What happens during the procedure?

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.

When injected into fatty tissue with very thin needles, the double layer of the fat cell membrane swell and harden and the agent,  begins the fat breakdown, transforming the fat cells into tiny little fat particles of nano-size (one millionth of a millimeter). The final process occurs in the liver where the fat is completely broken down into carbon dioxide and water.
