Mesotherapy is a non-surgical weight loss procedure.
It is administered by injection of a custom-made mixture of ingredients that are designed to meet the specific patient’s desires. This mixture may include, but is not limited to, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. As more people are looking for aid in weight loss that does not require surgery, options such as mesotherapy are becoming common choices for people wanting to reduce cellulite.
Cellulite is a common affliction among many men and women across the world. Not only for aesthetic value in ourselves, people are looking to be rid of these fat deposits and mesotherapy can help. Cellulite appears as lumpy fat deposits on the upper thighs, buttocks and lower abdomen, more commonly in women than men. Cellulite pockets often have a texture similar to cottage cheese or orange peels.
Although not considered medically abnormal, cellulite can be unsightly and it is difficult to be rid of. Many products are on the market today that claim to reduce or remove cellulite, but every product works different on every person’s skin. There is no way to know what product will work for any particular person outside of spending a lot of time and money trying different products.
Unlike massage creams, which are applied topically, mesotherapy involves injection treatment. The needles used to administer the injection are normally .4mm to .6mm in length, roughly the same length as an eyelash. Many people who have undergone mesotherapy say the procedure hurts no more than a quick pinch.
Mesotherapists create the fluids injected into the mesoderm based on each patient they are treating. The mixture the mesotherapist creates for his patient is designed to break down the cellulite into a substance the body can excrete through the kidneys and bowel. By injecting this mixture into the scarpa’s fascia layer, fat cells are shrunken down or eliminated all together.
Mesotherapy doesn’t work alone, however. Before and after undergoing this kind of cellulite removal treatment, patients are asked to follow a healthy diet. This includes drinking lots of water to flush the body of toxins and exercising regularly to ensure that the medications injected are circulating through the blood stream.
Anyone considering mesotherapy as a cellulite removal option should also consider that one treatment will not produce results. This type of mesotherapy requires an average of eight to ten visits, sometimes up to fifteen or more. The number of treatments required to produce the desired results depends on how much area is being treated and how densely populated with cellulite the area is.
It is important to maintain realistic goals from procedures such as mesotherapy, or any alternative weight loss program. All weight loss programs must be accompanied by a healthy lifestyle and frequent exercise to ensure optimum results and the healthiest outcome possible. A discussion with a physician regarding the best weight loss options for an individual should occur before any final decision is made.
