What is Mesotherapy Treatment?
Mesotherapy is a treatment used to reduce cellulite, encourage weight loss and rejuvenate the skin. It can also be used to combat hair loss by ensuring hormones are balanced around the hair follicle and there is sufficient nutrients present in the body.
It is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure and involves the injection of approved medicines, plant extracts and vitamins into the skin surrounding the subcutaneous tissue.
Mesotherapy differs from liposuction in the sense that liposuction is more intrusive and requires the use of an anesthetic. Liposuction is also most widely used to solely eliminate excess fat from the body. The fact that liposuction is more intrusive than mesotherapy means that there are more complications and risks involved in the treatment.
What to Expect During Treatment
Before the therapy begins, your doctor or dermatologist will carry out a test to see if you are allergic to the treatment being used. If the results come back clear, injections are then administered into the skin. The size of the needles used depends on many factors such as the colour of the patient’s skin.
The procedure usually lasts 30 minutes to an hour. Although you may feel some discomfort during the therapy, it is usually painless.
As with any cosmetic treatment, afterwards you may experience soreness, discoloration of the skin, swelling and burning but these side effects do not last very long.
