What Is Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic solution that is designed to diminish certain problem areas in the body that require cellulite reduction, body contouring, or neck and face rejuvenation. The treatment is administered by way of injection and introduced into the mesoderm. The mesoderm is the layer of tissue and fat that just lies beneath the skin.
The injections that are used for mesotherapy contain FDA-approved vitamins, minerals, and medicines. As a result, the mixture used in an injection may vary depending upon the area that is being treated. Mesotherapy can also assist in the reduction of pain or in replenishing hair loss in women and men.
Mesotherapy Versus Liposuction: The Differences
The instant weight loss results related to liposuction cannot be compared with the results achieved from mesotherapy. That is because liposuction is more invasive and therefore the results are seen more easily. However, that being said, mesotherapy is much more affordable and, as indicated, less invasive.
Mesotherapy, such as the therapy featured at the Lucia Aesthetic & Dermatology Center, is a process that is relatively painless. Anesthetic creams are applied to the area before an injection is administered. Liposuction, on the other hand, frequently results in some level of pain after the procedure. Pain can also be experienced during the healing process.
Mesotherapy causes little scarring, although light bruising and swelling may appear at the site for a couple days. Liposuction, on the other hand, can cause some scarring, ranging from moderate to severe. Whilst sedation is not needed in mesotherapy, liposuction is more invasive and therefore does require the use of a sedative and a numbing agent or anesthetic.
Using Mesotherapy for Fat Reduction and Weight Loss
Mesotherapy has been widely used for the last four decades in France. The therapy is primarily used for cellulite reduction or fat reduction and weight loss. When used for fat reduction and weight loss, the patient usually undergoes four sessions of treatments or injections.
The process is followed at two- to four-week intervals. Depending on the problem area, the number of sessions may increase. Because the therapy does not produce drastic alterations, it is usually advised for patients who need a small amount of fat reduction in specific regions of the body, such as what is achieved with body contouring.
When mesotherapy is used for cellulite reduction, approximately three to four treatments are needed at three- to four-week intervals. Whilst cellulite treatment is the least effective of the options available, it is still very helpful in reducing mild amounts of cellulite.
The therapy is also used for lower blepharoplasty treatments. Blepharoplasty is normally a process that is used to repair droopy eyelids and therefore entails removal of excess skin, fat, or muscle. This type of procedure is frequently used to correct bags under the eyes or droopy upper lids. When used for this purpose, mesotherapy usually requires up to two treatments, recommended at intervals of six weeks. In some cases, a second treatment is not necessary.
For facial rejuvenation, typically four treatments are needed at intervals of two to three weeks. Many customers are well pleased with the results when mesotherapy is used for reinvigorating the facial area.
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive skin care approach that is welcomed by many of its users. The non-surgical procedure can be applied to the arms, thighs, or face.
