Am I a Candidate for Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy does not require sedation or general anesthesia, which broadens eligibility to include many patients who may not be good candidates for more invasive procedures, such as conventional liposuction treatments. Additionally, patients who may have negative reactions to one or more of the ingredients used in mesotherapy may still be good candidates for the procedure, because the injections include such small amounts of each conventional medication, amino acid, mineral, vitamin and homeopathic medication.

To determine your candidacy for receiving mesotherapy treatments, it will be necessary to schedule a pre-procedure consultation with your chosen provider. During the consultation, the provider will review your medical history and specifically ask about allergies to medications. In most cases, an allergy test will also be completed, which includes administering one or two injections and waiting 24 hours to monitor your reaction to the ingredients. This will help to determine if you are a good candidate for this minimally invasive procedure and ensure that you will not have a negative reaction after the treatment. Because each injection is individually customized by the provider for each patient, a consultation and allergy test are critical to determining candidacy.

Good candidates for mesotherapy should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the results that are possible to achieve. Patients should not expect to see immediate, significant results similar to what is possible with more invasive procedures, and should understand that the best possible results will be achieved when the patient has small fat deposits and minimal body contour issues to correct. Because mesotherapy is a simple procedure that requires only minimal amounts of the injectable solution to be administered, most patients will find that they are likely to be good candidates for treatment.

If you are interested in receiving mesotherapy treatments, schedule an appointment with a local provider to discuss the procedure and complete an allergy test. This is the only way to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this procedure.
