Mesotherapy refers to several different types of treatment which induce fat mobilisation or lipolysis, via the delivery of active ingredients into the deepest layers of the skin.
What is Mesotherapy Treatment?
Mesotherapy’s delivery of active ingredients to the skin’s dermal layer has a positive impact on skin physiology. The treatment delivers the ingredients to the base of the epidermis, where the division of cells takes place and fibroblasts are located.
Common mesotherapy treatments include: electrical needle-free methods, micro-needling methods, and medical mesotherapy.
How Mesotherapy Work
Ahead of the procedures, each individual will be evaluated in order that a customised formula can be created for the injection – this can include several ingredients. The area targeted for treatment will be cleansed before the injection is administered into the subcutaneous fat layer. Typically, several sessions will be needed,
depending on the nature of the issue which is being addressed. You might have anything from one to 15 sessions, spaced over several weeks, and ‘upkeep’ treatments can be scheduled about every six months. A little swelling following the procedure is considered normal and generally subsides within 48 hours.
Who Can Benefit from Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy can be beneficial for healthy adults between the ages of 18 and 75. If you want to achieve spot weight reduction, weight loss or cellulite reduction, you could be a good candidate for mesotherapy. It is normal for your medical history to be reviewed during an initial consultation to ensure that there are no previous conditions, or current medications you are taking, which could prevent you from having mesotherapy treatment.
You may not be able to undergo mesotherapy treatment if; you have a history of heart disease, stroke, cancer or blood clots; you are currently taking insulin-dependent diabetics, or you are taking several medications for heart disease.
