Mesotherapy treats cellulite. Liposuction does not treat cellulite. In fact, liposuction often causes existing cellulite to appear more prominent. Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. Fat deposits are flushed from the body and do not reappear in other areas, which often occurs after liposuction. Mesotherapy does not require hospitalization, general anaesthesia or downtime.
Although mesotherapy is suitable to treat a broad spectrum of injuries, illnesses and medical conditions. Besides, it also treats cosmetic conditions, including acne, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles. It is also suitable to reduce and contour fat.
Subdermal vitamin injections rejuvenate the cells, making them more active, and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. You can begin anti-ageing treatments in your mid-twenties to prevent wrinkles from forming. Specialists recommend treatments for the face, neck, arms and hands several times each year.
Mesotherapy treats three factors involved in cellulite formation. Your practitioner creates a specific formula to reduce the fat in your cellulite, improve impaired circulation and break down damaged connective tissue – thereby smoothing the skin’s surface. Mesotherapy can treat cellulite located anywhere on the body.
Results variations depend on your body type and the condition you need to treat. On average, patients notice visible improvement in two to three sessions. For certain conditions, patients see results after the first session.
The results do last, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, we cannot stop the natural ageing that affects your appearance. For this reason, we recommend regular maintenance visits.
You may feel a slight pinching or burning sensation at the moment of the injection. However, we can provide a topical anaesthetic that makes the treatment virtually painless.
A common side effect of Mesotherapy is bruising, which generally resolves over one week. To speed up the healing process, we recommend that the homoeopathic supplement arnica be taken either orally or applied topically on a daily basis. Patients may experience temporary soreness. This will subside within 24-48 hours.
Restrictions vary, depending on the condition being treated. 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.
