Mesotherapy injections are a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for removal of isolated pockets of fat. Also known as spot fat reduction therapy, Mesotherapy is a treatment in which a combination medication consisting of vitamins is injected into the fat and tissues that make up the middle layer of the skin.
Mesotherapy is the ideal treatment for reversing the effects of unsightly cellulite deposits. Mesotherapy is also ideal for removal of fatty deposits under the eyes (treatment of puffy eyes). Mesotherapy has been around for nearly 50 years but it has been recently approved in North America. Mesotherapy injections work by increasing the flow of blood to injected areas which helps dissolve excess fatty deposits, strengthens connective tissues and produce a smoother overall tone.
Many people undergo Mesotherapy as an alternative to liposuction for removal of localized fat deposits - sagging chins and eyelids, cellulite on heavy thighs, abdomen, hips and buttocks are ideally treated. Mesotherapy is a safe non-surgical option and will not require invasive surgery or a lengthy recovery period. Mesotherapy injections are performed in a series of 3 or more treatments.
