Mesotherapy is a cosmetic, non-surgical treatment created to reduce problem areas found in the body. This includes neck and facial rejuvenation, body contouring, excess weight and cellulite. The treatment uses several different types of minerals, vitamins and FDA approved medications. These components are injected into the layer of tissue and fat beneath the skin called the mesoderm. The exact contents of the injection are dependent on the areas being treated and the unique needs of each individual.
This treatment is not meant to be used for extreme weight loss. This requires exercise and a healthy diet. The treatment will remove some excess weight and is ideal for cellulite reduction. It is also important to note mesotherapy is much less invasive and expensive than traditional liposuction.
Although mesotherapy is still relatively new in the United States, the treatment has been widely used in France for thirty to forty years with great success. The reviews within the United States have been excellent and numerous physicians believe this is a good option for cellulite reduction as opposed to cosmetic surgery. There are different treatments available. Each one requires the medication and number of injections to be customized for the patient.
