The Mesotherapy Program
Mesotherapy has many clinical and cosmetic uses. Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used in Europe and elsewhere to treat various injuries and medical conditions. This medical specialty targets problem areas with microinjections of conventional medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Among its many applications, Mesotherapy can be used for the following:
- Eliminate Cellulite
- Eliminate Localized Fat Deposits
- Provide Anti-Aging Benefits
Mesotherapy treats three factors involved in cellulite formation. Your doctor creates a specific formula to reduce the fat in your cellulite, improve impaired circulation, and break-down damaged connective tissue, thereby smoothing the skin’s surface. Mesotherapy can treat cellulite located anywhere on the body.
Typically, cellulite appears between the ages of 25 and 35, and progressively worsens with time. Although it’s easily treated with a few Mesotherapy sessions in its early stages, once cellulite progresses to more advanced stages, treatment usually requires a greater number of Mesotherapy sessions.
Different stages or grades of cellulite include the following:
Grade 0: No dimpling when pressure is applied
Grade 1: Dimpling when squeezed or pressure is applied to the skin
Grade 2: Dimpling is visible when standing, but not when lying down
Grade 3: Dimpling is visible when standing and lying down
2) Eliminate Localized Fat Deposits
Mesotherapy is a procedure used for weight loss and body sculpting to reduce, eliminate and contour specific areas of undesired fat pockets. This method targets the receptors on fat cells that produce lipogenesis (fat production) and lipolysis (fat breakdown). Receptors that aid in the breakdown of fat are known as beta-receptors; those that aid in the production and storage of fat are alpha-receptors. Alpha-receptors are stimulated to produce fat when you ingest food containing carbohydrates, fat, amino acids, hormones or alcohol.
Mesotherapy is helpful in eliminating fat in those hard to target areas such as the buttocks, inner and outer thighs and lower abdomen.
3) Provide Anti-Aging Benefits
Mesotherapy is a natural and safe alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesolift process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin, which in turn aids the skin to rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. As your skin ages, circulation decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hinders your body’s ability to flush out toxins. The inability to flush out these toxins drives premature aging and causes the skin to develop an “ashy” appearance.
Subdermal vitamin injections rejuvenate the cells, making them more active, and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. You can begin anti-aging treatments in your mid twenties to prevent wrinkles from forming. Treatments for the face, neck, arms and hands are recommended several times each year.
After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Mesotherapy can be used as a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimens, including botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts.
Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. Mesotherapy helps tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms and hands. In Europe, women often start treatments in their thirties, but Mesotherapy can prove valuable during any stage of a woman’s life.
