Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment used for skin rejuvenation and slimming, as well as to treat hair loss and cellulite. A cocktail of vitamins, amino acids, anti-inflammatories and homeopathic medicines is deposited into the skin through a specific technique. This medication stimulates the middle layer of skin, improving microcirculation and drainage of toxins in the area treated.
Treatments are usually a course of about ten for fat and cellulite reduction and six for skin rejuvenation, given once a week. The patient is then assessed to determine an on-going programme of maintenance. In some cases, a further full course of treatment may be recommended.
Cellulite is caused by poor circulation, fat build up, a weakening of connective tissues, lymphatic congestion and hormonal imbalances. Cellulite is classified into four stages, based upon its appearance while standing, laying, and pinching the skin. Mesotherapy treatment is targeted to correct these problems by improving circulation, strengthening connective tissues, and dissolving excess fat.
For weight loss, mesotherapy works to modify the biology of fat cells. It does so by blocking the signals of fat accumulation and simultaneously triggering the release of stored fat. The desired area of treatment can be very specific, targeting the most problematic areas. Additionally, a complete dietary and nutrient evaluation is needed to help maintain weight loss goals.
Alopecia, the loss of hair, affects both men and women. Alopecia results from poor circulation, nutritional imbalances and the excess of a hormone known as DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Mesotherapy can correct these problems, stimulating the body to naturally grow lost hair.
Ageing, sagging and wrinkling of the skin occurs from accumulation of fat, loss of skin elasticity and excessive free radical damage. Using antioxidants and amino acids, mesotherapy aims to remove fat from under the neck, remove free radical damage, and tighten loose skin. The effects are said to rejuvenate the face, eyelids, and neck without the unnatural appearance and painful recovery of surgical face lifting.
Contouring of the abdomen, arms, back, legs and hands can be obtained with mesotherapy. Vitamins and amino acids are used to tighten sagging skin while other agents are used to remove areas of fat, restoring a more youthful and athletic appearance to the body’s contours.
