Cellulite is a skin condition affecting over 90% of most women and men. Those with a slim figure often complain about cellulite's external visible symptoms: lumpy, dimpled, often discolored appearance. Cellulite can commonly appear on the hips, buttocks and legs, but is not caused by being overweight, as many believe.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive procedure that involves injections into the mesoderm, the middle layer of skin, to stimulate the removal of cellulite, wrinkles, excess fat, and sagging skin. The treatment involves localized injections of homeopathic and traditional medications in addition to vitamins. Each injection offers freedom from more invasive treatments that require anesthesia and surgery and helps the body to heal itself from the inside out.
Who is an ideal candidate for Mesotherapy?
Anyone seeking a treatment option for cellulite, wrinkles, excess fat and sagging skin is a potential candidate. Anyone who is interested in removing these without the use of anesthesia or surgery should also consider Mesotherapy.
What areas of the body does Mesotherapy treat?
Mesotherapy can be used on various parts of the body. Most generally, treatments under the chin, arms, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and sagging skin in other areas may be treated. Wrinkles on the face may be treated and there are a number of other areas that may be treated. Discussing what options are available with a trusted physician is always a great idea.
Are Mesotherapy treatments permanent?
As with any cosmetic treatment, there are limits to effectiveness over time. Age and the elements can affect all skin types eventually, but Mesotherapy offers a way to help preserve the health within the skin over time, thus potentially helping to prevent future skin damage. Of course when it comes to unwanted body fat, a healthy diet and lifestyle will determine whether or not the treatments are long lasting.
How is the Mesotherapy treatment performed?
Mesotherapy injections are of course discussed with the patient and treatment areas are decided upon. Injections into the mesoderm layer of the skin ensue and patients may feel a bit of heaviness or discomfort associated with the treatment. Each patient’s side effects differ however.
What is the recovery period like after Mesotherapy treatments?
There really is no “recovery period” with Mesotherapy other than the body working to alter its internal structures over time, which ultimately affects the outward appearance of the skin, such as the removal of cellulite, excess fat, and a tightening of skin, as examples. There may be minor discomfort associated with the injections, but there is nothing invasive to heal from.
How many treatments are necessary and when do I see results from Mesotherapy?
Results appear gradually over a matter of weeks to months. Since the changes are not invasive, the results will occur more gradually and patients will notice that the results come after about 10-15 treatments. This number of course varies from patient to patient and may be more or less depending on the area being treated.
Is Mesotherapy covered by health insurance providers?
Mesotherapy is considered to be a cosmetic procedure so most health insurance providers will not cover the treatment. It is always a good idea to see what one’s health insurance may cover and to speak with a dermatologist about what options are available.
