Mesotherapy involves the application of a series of micro-injections of a cocktail made up of natural extracts, amino acids, minerals and vitamins into the middle layer of the skin. The uses of Mesotherapy in aesthetic medicine include reduction of cellulite and fat on the legs, buttocks and abdomen. It is also used in the treatment of wrinkles, scars, blemishes, stretch marks, and to stop hair loss. When we inject small amounts of the product in the skin, we increase blood flow in the treated area, improving lymphatic drainage, dissolving excess fat deposit and removing the hardened old tissue from the skin.
Mesotherapy is used as an alternative to the liposuction in people who don’t want surgery.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, and itching. These tend to disappear after a few hours.
The majority of patients have no complications and they only feel mild pain during the procedure.
Mesotherapy is frequently combined with Microneedling to obtain a better result.
