Mesotherapy is a relatively new slimming technique that was developed in the 1950s in Europe. In addition to being a cosmetic procedure for eliminating fat and reducing cellulite, Mesotherapy has also a few alternative medical uses.
Mesotherapy hasn’t been always used to eliminate fat cells and reduce the appearance of cellulite. In the beginning, Mesotherapy was used to administer medications to treat various illnesses. The medication was administered in the middle layer (the mesoderm) of the skin and would travel into the patient’s system. Mesotherapy was used to reduce intolerance to certain medications and to minimize the side effects.
Today, Mesotherapy is administered as a formula made up by medications, vitamins, minerals and amino acids in different percentages, depending on the condition it is used for and the patient. Mesotherapy is also used to promote hair growth in men with alopecia. The injections will be administered in the scalp.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Another use of Mesotherapy is that of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, as the Mesotherapy injections will promote the formation of collagen and this will have a skin tightening effect in the areas that are treated. This effect will be visible a few weeks after the injections are administered.
