Mesotherapy was invented by a French doctor, Dr. Michel Pistor, in the early 1950s. The treatment is employed in variable medical conditions, but it is also a helpful cosmetic treatment. There are numerous reasons to opt for Mesotherapy.
1. Versatile Treatment
Mesotherapy may be used for various cosmetic purposes including:
- Reduction of adipose tissue from areas such as the stomach, chin, face, neck, thighs, buttocks
- Reduction of cellulite on thighs, buttocks or stomach
- Anti aging (skin softening and tightening though the stimulation of collagen production)
The patient can take advantage of all these treatment benefits at the cost of only 1 treatment.
The treatment involves injections containing homeopathic medicine, minerals, amino acids and certain vitamins. The name Mesotherapy is given due to the fact that the injections are administered in the mesoderm, which is the middle layer of skin. The procedure is non invasive.
The injections will have the desired effects, which will occur within 4 to 8 weeks of the administration of the treatment.
2. Non Invasive Treatment
Mesotherapy is a non invasive treatment, so it will not involve surgery, anesthesia and the risks associated with these procedures.
The injection containing the suitable compounds is injected and the body is left to react. The fat will be naturally eliminated and the skin will regenerate gradually eliminating deep wrinkles and other skin defects.
3. No Scarring
As Mesotherapy is a non invasive treatment, it will cause no scarring. A lot of cosmetic procedures that have slimming or anti aging effects may cause scarring.
4. No Damage to Skin
Mesotherapy is an injectible treatment and this will not affect the skin in any way. The injection is administered intradermally, in the middle layer of the skin, and this will cause no skin dimpling or skin burns. Other more aggressive cosmetic procedures may potentially cause skin dimpling or skin burns.
5. Quick Recovery
After the administration of the Mesotherapy injection, there may be minimal swelling and irritation, but these will subside within a few days.
Physical activities are allowed after the Mesotherapy treatment. A lot of plastic surgeries will require a recovery period that will not allow strenuous activities.
6. Minimal Pain
The Mesotherapy is administered through 1 or several injections. The pain involved is minimal compared to the pain after a plastic surgery.
There is no need for pain medication after the Mesotherapy treatment. Other surgical procedures will require pain killer administration post surgery.
7. No Risks
The injection site may get irritated, but in rare cases. Mesotherapy involves no risks such as infections, blood clots or embolisms, which may be experienced after other invasive plastic procedures.
The cost of Mesotherapy is less than the cost of any liposuction technique or skin resurfacing and rejuvenating treatments.
In addition, Mesotherapy will also have several cosmetic benefits (fat reduction, cellulite reduction, skin softening and anti aging).
