Many women are talking about the amazing benefits of mesotherapy. If you haven't heard mesotherapy is considered the most affective and long lasting cellulite treatment available today.
If you have heard about mesotherapy and are interested in learning how it works you came to the right place. Below I've provided a brief overview on mesotherapy, what it is, how it works, the costs, risks, and so much more!
Let's get started.
Mesotherapy is a technique invented by Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952 to deliver medications below the skin's surface. Today this technique is being used to treat cellulite. In mesotherapy, very small doses of different medications are administered in specific areas of the body to burn fat. Theses medications are administered through an injection.
The medications and nutritional supplements that are used in mesotherapy work to melt the fat beneath the skin and shrink your fat cells aka cellulite.
Since there are different levels of cellulite, your doctor will develop a formula based on your grade of cellulite. During treatment, the formula is painlessly injected into the cellulite at regular intervals along the affected area. The process of correcting cellulite typically requires 10 to 15 sessions per area.
Here are the different levels of cellulite:
Stage 0: No visible cellulite, even when skin is pinched.
Stage 1: No visible cellulite when standing or lying down, however cellulite can be seen when skin is pinched.
Stage 2: Visible cellulite when standing, but not when lying down.
Stage 3: Visible cellulite when standing and lying down.
Since there are four stages of cellulite, each patient has different dosages of medications. Let's take a look at common medications used in mesotherapy and how they work.
