Mesotherapy: The Non-Surgical Way to a Slimmer You

Updated: Jan 2

Mesotherapy, sometimes called Fat Dissolve Injections or Lipo Shots, is a minimally invasive contouring procedure that has become increasingly popular in recent years.

The goal of mesotherapy is to reduce the appearance of cellulite, contour the body, and promote fat reduction in localized areas.

The injections used in mesotherapy can vary depending on the specific needs and goals of the patient. Some common ingredients used in these injections include phosphatidylcholine, which is a natural substance found in the body that can dissolve fat, and deoxycholic acid, which is a chemical that can break down fat cells. Other ingredients may include amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.

How does it work?

Mesotherapy aims at fat reduction by introducing a solution (PCDC) directly into targeted fat areas. This disrupts the fat cell membranes, leading them to release their contents. Consequently, fat cells diminish in both size and quantity. The body naturally processes and expels these released components. For optimal results, the procedure can be repeated as needed.

Is it safe?

Mesotherapy is generally considered safe when administered by a trained and licensed professional. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort at the injection site. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of mesotherapy with a qualified healthcare provider before undergoing the treatment.

Who should avoid Mesotherapy?

Safety always comes first! Individuals with the following conditions or circumstances should avoid Mesotherapy:

  1. Active cancer

  2. Diabetes

  3. Liver disease

  4. Renal disease

  5. HIV

  6. Skin infections in the treated areas

  7. Cardiac problems

  8. Taking anticoagulants

  9. History of keloids, scarring, or pigmentation changes

  10. Pregnant or breastfeeding

Is it effective?

As with any medical treatment, the effectiveness of mesotherapy can vary depending on the individual and the specific condition being treated. However, many people have reported positive results from mesotherapy, particularly for reducing the appearance of cellulite, spot fat reduction, and skin rejuvenation.

How many sessions are needed?

You may see some results just after one session. But at least three sessions are recommended to get more visible results. Each session must be four weeks apart.

Do I still need to exercise or diet after getting Mesotherapy?

While mesotherapy can help break down and dissolve fat cells, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is necessary to prevent the formation of new fat cells. A balanced diet and regular exercise can also help improve overall body composition and enhance the results of mesotherapy treatments.
