Mesotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that is classed as an effective method to reduce the appearance of cellulite, rejuvenate the skin as well as to sculpt and contour the body. Dr Michel Pistor invented the procedure in 1952 and it comprises of a number of injections into the middle layer of your skin, known as the mesoderm.  This allows for localised application of numerous nourishing products such as amino acids, drugs, minerals and vitamins. This allows treatment to be directed at a specific problem area of the body.

As mentioned, mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that requires the injection of nourishing ingredients, such as medications, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. These ingredients are combined in different ways to make the procedure unique and suited to the patient.

The mesotherapy treatment is a method used by many in an attempt to:

  • Stimulate weight loss
  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks that may be a result of pregnancy or rapid weight change
  • Reduce the appearance of natural lines and wrinkles that occur over time
  • Improve the appearance of cellulite and consequently make the skin smoother
  • Eliminate acne scars

The procedure originated in the 1950s in France but now it is available all over the world. Therefore, there are many clinics and surgeons for you to consider when contemplating undergoing mesotherapy. This can be done through the consultation procedure, which is in place in the vast majority of clinics. Here you can meet your surgeon and ask as many questions as you wish about mesotherapy. You will also have the risks and benefits explained to you. This is very important as the procedure has yet to be approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

The general idea behind mesotherapy is that the medication ingredients in the injections boost blood flow to the area. Apparently the medications also eliminate fat deposits, hard connective tissue and stimulate the amount of lymphatic drainage. The overall result of the mesotherapy treatment is that skin that previously looked dry, dull and tired will appear younger and healthier in appearance. This process can be carried out on its own or post-operatively to further improve appearance after another cosmetic procedure.

It is believed that mesotherapy is especially effective against cellulite and has many advantages over other cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction. Other benefits include the speed of the actual procedure and recovery time.

For most people, it takes a number of treatment sessions to obtain the desired results. Despite this, many notice a difference after the first mesotherapy appointment. Once the result has been achieved, you will be given advice about the type of diet and lifestyle you should adopt in order to maintain the effects. You will also be required to have subsequent mesotherapy treatments, on a relatively regular basis, in the future.
