What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy treatment is a non surgical cosmetic solution targetted at diminishing problem areas in your body such as cellulite, excess weight, body contouring, and face/neck rejuvenation, just to name a few. It is administered via numerous injections containing various types of CE marked vitamins, and minerals.
What are the benefits of Mesotherapy over surgical techniques such as liposuction?
Liposuction will not clear cellulite. Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas..
What can Mesotherapy treat?
Although Mesotherapy is used to treat a broad spectrum of injuries, illnesses and medical conditions, it is also employed to treat cosmetic conditions, including acne, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles. It can also be used to reduce and contour fat.
Can Mesotherapy reduce or eliminate cellulite?
Mesotherapy treats three factors involved in cellulite formation. The formula will reduce the fat in your cellulite, improve impaired circulation and break down damaged connective tissue – thereby smoothing the skin’s surface.
How does Mesotherapy promote weight loss and spot reduction?
It prevents cells from storing fat, and helps break down existing fat cells. Spot reduction targets double chins, love handles and any other areas displaying fat pockets.
Is there a use in anti-aging and skin rejuvenation?
Subdermal vitamin injections rejuvenate the cells, making them more active, and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. You can begin anti-aging treatments in your mid twenties to prevent wrinkles from forming. Treatments for the face, neck, arms and hands are recommended several times each year.
What happens at the consultation and follow-up appointments?
After filling out a series of forms, we will review your medical history and give you an in depth explanation as to what Mesotherapy is. Photos will be taken to chart your progress.
In most cases, patients are not treated at the time of the Mesotherapy consultation in order to allow time to see if there are any allergic reactions to the two injections. The patient is required to call 24 hours later to report if there is any negative reaction.
You may schedule a Mesotherapy appointment for treatment one day later at the time of your consult allowing for the 24 hour period need for allergy testing.
Patients typically sign up for advance Mesotherapy appointments in order to best accommodate their schedule. Most come once a week for Mesotherapy but on occasion a treatment may be skipped–this will not affect your progress.
You will be offered a topical numbing cream which you can apply 45 minutes prior to your appointments.
When Will I see Results?
Results vary depending on your body type and the condition being treated. On average, patients notice visible improvement in two to three sessions. For certain conditions, patients see results after the first session.
Do the results last?
The results do last, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, we cannot stop the natural aging that affects your appearance. For this reason, we recommend regular maintenance visits.
Are the treatments painful?
You may feel a slight pinching or burning sensation when the injections are administered. However, we can provide a topical anesthetic that makes treatment virtually painless.
Are there any side effects?
Bruising, which generally resolves over one week. To speed up the healing process, we recommend that the homeopathic supplement arnica be taken either orally or applied topically on a daily basis.
Temporary soreness. This will subside within 24-48 hours.
Are there any Restrictions?
We discuss these with each patient before treatments commence. In general, patients are advised not to wear makeup for at least 4 hours after facial treatments, not to take hot showers for at least 6 to 8 hours. We recommend that patients eat a high-protein meal, and avoid caffeine or other stimulants before treatment.
What are the Costs?
The total cost depends on the nature of the medical condition and the number of sessions needed to achieve the desired results.
