What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a technique that uses subcutaneous injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat.
Mesotherapy is used to:
- remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
- reduce cellulite
- fade wrinkles and lines
- tighten loose skin
- recontour the body
- lighten pigmented skin
- treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss
The technique uses subcutaneous needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (subcutaneous) of skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.
Are the treatments painful? What are the side effects?
There may be some localized discomfort upon injection, and a minor burning sensation immediately following the treatment. Swelling will occur in the treated area, and soreness and inflammation may be experienced for several days after treatment. It is important to bear in mind that these inflammatory side effects produce a tighter and smoother overlying skin, which is highly desirable. Your fat area becoming firm is a sign the treatment is working. As your body breaks down the treated fat cells, they are excreted through the body’s normal metabolic process.
Any activity restrictions after treatment ?
For the first 2 to 3 DAYS after a treatment, vigorous physical activity or exercise/alcohol consumption is not recommended. Also heat like sauna’s, sun bed, direct sun, warm water and massages. After that time period, playing sports or exercising is acceptable. Please consume 2litre water per day for your first 5 days and if you can keep this up for every day thereafter.
When will I see results?
On the average, patients begin to see noticeable improvement after 3 – 5 days (please bear in mind everybody’s body differs from one another). For the first several weeks while the body’s inflammatory response is prominent, you may feel “bloated” in the treated area. This is expected and only temporary. Once the body begins metabolizing the fat, contour improvement occurs.
Is it permanent?
The average person is born with a certain number of fat cells and after adolescence does not develop more. Lipolysis Mesotherapy Treatments will permanently remove fat cells in the area of treatment, leaving only a thin layer of cells, because the fat dissolving formula actually destroys fat cells. However, the treated area should remain proportionate with the surrounding areas.
