The body shape is able to say a lot about the person. It provides the impression about who the person is and how s/he takes care of her/himself. It is possible to correct some areas of the body with the help of common exercises and a diet. Nevertheless, there are some areas that do not respond to these methods. Sometimes it is very difficult to remove cellulite, fat deposits in a chin, neck, hips, cheeks, jaw line and “love handles”. Mesotherapy procedure is a solution to all these problems.
Mesotherapy procedure has been used since 1952. It was invented in Europe by a French physician. The aim of the invention was pain management. The procedure consists in the injection of chemicals, minerals and vitamins, approved by FDA, just under the skin. The chemicals can differ depending on the area treated as well as on the condition.
Mesotherapy procedure has a number of medical applications including spot body contouring, neck and face rejuvenation, weight loss and cellulite reduction. The chemicals used in mesotherapy procedure melt the fat under the skin and shrink fat cells that are located deeper. After the fat is dissolved it is absorbed by the bloodstream. Further, it is carried and removed through the kidneys. The chemicals used in the procedure are aimed at treating cellulite, destroying the connective tissues, which cause dimpling effect, and dissolving fat cells, which are trapped. The result is smooth and dimple-free appearance.
During the procedure, a doctor uses a very small needle and makes injections into the treated area. Thanks to the tiny size of the needle the procedure is almost painless. In order to provoke general weight loss, the doctor may make injections into larger areas. It causes fat dissolution all over the body.
While treating cellulite, it is possible to use one formulation of chemicals to dissolve fat and the other one to crush fibrous bands binding the skin. Sometimes the doctor may use a special device for delivering the injections.
In spite of the safety and efficacy of mesotherapy procedure, it has some side effects. It is necessary to say that the side effects of the procedure are limited because the chemicals are delivered to the targeted area. It helps reduce interaction between drugs as well as the amount of the medication required for every procedure. One of the most common side effects is bruising. It is possible that the doctor may advise that the patient should stop taking blood thinners some time before the operation.
Mesotherapy is often compared to liposuction. It is necessary underline certain differences between them. Mesotherapy dissolves fat, but not fat cells, and removes it from the body painlessly. The procedure is performed in a series of sessions. The procedure shows rather quick and effective results. For example, some patients lose two sizes after only ten procedures.
It is necessary to remember that mesotherapy is not a surgery. The procedure requires no incisions or sedation. It necessitates no recovery time either.
