Mesotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that is used to sculpt the body and get rid of cellulite. If you consider this procedure, you should also know that your lifestyle after the procedure can influence the durability of the results of Mesotherapy. If you don’t have a balanced diet and you don’t exercise, you run the risk of gaining back fat.
The Myth of Weight Gain and Fat Migration
A lot of people mistakenly believe that once a slimming treatment such as Mesotherapy is applied, the fat cells are completely removed and weight gain won’t be possible in the treated areas. The truth is that a few fat cells will still remain in the treated areas, so if you gain weight, you will deposit this in all areas of the body. You may have the tendency to deposit fat in certain areas, so you may deposit more fat in these areas.
But, if you opt for a sensitive diet and exercise on a regular basis, you will not gain weight.
Exercising is important to keep the results of Mesotherapy. The procedure sculpts the body so you will want to maintain your figure. Mesotherapy also has the advantage of tightening the skin, so you won’t have to undergo additional treatments to get rid of the saggy skin.
A few minutes of exercise 2 or 3 times per week can help you preserve your figure. Choose activities that you are likely to enjoy. You only need 30 to 50 minutes of exercise, depending on the intensity of the workout.
Your diet after Mesotherapy should change if you are used to overeating. Overeating will quickly restore your eliminated fat deposits, and you may need a new slimming treatment. Count your calories and make sure not to eat more than 2000 calories if you are a woman or 2500 calories if you are a man.
You should also balance the proteins, fats, fibers and carbohydrates in your diet. If your diet is filled with unhealthy carbohydrates, you will always feel hungry and are more likely to overeat. As you get older and less active, your metabolism will slow down, so you will have to make a few adjustments to avoid gaining fat. You may also opt for periodical detoxifying cures, which will clean your body from toxins and help you keep fit and healthy.
To maintain the effects of Mesotherapy for longer, you may also opt for a few additional treatments that will keep your body slim. Massage therapy can be applied once or twice per month and may eliminate small deposits of fat or cellulite. The results of Mesotherapy should be visible for several years, but it is up to you to maintain these for longer.
You may opt for a new Mesotherapy treatment as soon as 6 months after the first.
