Beauty and Cosmetic Treatments - Mesotherapy

Updated on September 18, 2012

How Can Mesotherapy Affect Your Appearance

Many individuals have the desire to appear at their their finest as well as feeling attractive and healthy. To achieve the sought after looks they want, they will go to great lengths. At times, surgical procedures will be used to address an issue which they find troubling. Others will partake in strenuous exercise programs to reshape their bodies. There are some who feel that cannot change they way they look and simply give up any efforts at trying to look like they want to. However, there is another method now being employed that can help people will certain problems that can be done in a few visits to a cosmetic physician to undertake mesotherapy treatments. This naturally leads one to wonder what is mesotherapy and how does it help someone.

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy a method that uses injections from a small syringe. A doctor will place materials and medicines into the mesoderm layer to achieve desired results. The mesoderm is an area of the body that lies between the skin and fatty tissue.

Cosmetic results are achieved by the process of injection. There are medications and substances a body can receive that will produce various cosmetic changes that one may find favorable. There are areas around the thighs that cellulite can collect and produce an undesirable appearance. This is a method to reduce that appearance.

Some of the Advantages

There are a couple of advantages of using this method of removing fat over other ways such as liposuction. Liposuction generally requires that someone become sedated to a point here they are unconscious. They will normally have to deal with some pain that can last for weeks after the procedure has been performed.

There is no use of medication to sedate someone. This means that a person will not have the same drowsy affects that could limit their ability to drive home alone safely. Using lotions that work on the specific area of treatment allows someone to leave the clinic almost immediately without complications.

Since only a small needle is used for the procedure only a little scarring may occur. About the only thing one might have to worry about is some yellowing that may result from the treatment. This would not be true for other types of treatment that use surgical knives to remove the flesh.

There are a number of concerns this new treatment technique can address for a person. They can have minor cosmetic work done that will make look and feel better. When they are asked what is mesotherapy, they will be able to show and tell another person who may be seeking the same results.

What will happen during the treatment?

A dermal roller is used to administer Mesotherapy. This penetrates the skin at the mesoderm layer, which is just below the skin surface.

More Questions

Is treatment painful?

It can be uncomfortable so an anesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment.

How long does treatment take?

Approximately 30 minutes.

What is the recovery time?

As mesotherapy has no side effects, day to day activities can be resumed straight away. Sometimes there may be minor swelling or bruising but will disappear quickly.
