What is Mesotherapy?
For those who find liposuction to be “too much”, or those who have already had liposuction, and now find fat depositing in other areas as well as cellulite that is now worse than before, mesotherapy is a noninvasive technique that allows for fat loss, and body contouring.

Mesotherapy is one of the most popular and most successful alternatives to plastic surgery for dramatically reducing cellulite and reshaping those infamous problem areas. Why is it so popular? Because it works! It promotes weight loss, body sculpting, and targets fat reduction and rejuvenates the skin of the face, neck, and hands.

Dr. Michel Pistor of France discovered this breakthrough medical approach in 1952, and Mesotherapy was given formal recognition by the French Academy of Medicine in 1987.

Over the past 50 years, in excess of 15,000 physicians worldwide have used a form of mesotherapy daily in their medical practices. While the procedure has been practiced widely in Europe for years, Mesotherapy is now available in the United States from a few highly trained and specialized physicians. Mesotherapy currently represents the latest breakthrough in fat and cellulite reduction.

How Does Mesotherapy Work?
Through the use of microinjections using all FDA approved solutions given in a proprietary individualized “fat burning” formula, these injections are given directly into the areas being treated and can be used to “spot reduce” specific areas such as love handles, saddlebags, buttocks, arms, double chins, sagging eyelids, or any area where your body pockets fat.

The fat dissolves and is carried through the bloodstream and excreted by the kidneys and bowel, leaving a smooth, firmer, and younger appearance.

Mesotherapy has been clinically proven to reduce areas of fat and cellulite that do not typically respond to diet and exercise. Many experts claim that Mesotherapy is the most successful fat reduction treatment available today. In addition to fat reduction, the procedure has been touted for rejuvenating collagen, toning, and tightening the areas being treated.

Is Mesotherapy safe?
Mesotherapy is a safe technique using all FDA approved pharmacological agents, homeopathic formulas, and natural plant extracts. The medications have been used successfully in France since 1952 with no known harmful side effects. Most people will require 5 to 10 sessions to achieve results. Dieting and exercise will definitely help to maintain the overall results over the long term.

Who can have Mesotherapy?
Adults between the ages of 18-75 in good health are candidates for Mesotherapy. Patients who are pregnant, have severe heart disease, or are insulin dependent diabetics are not candidates. It is also not advisable for patients taking certain medications such as those who have heart arrhythmias, seizures, strokes, or blood clots.
