Have you been working out, eating healthy, and losing weight, but can’t get rid of that stubborn cellulite?

Fat Reduction Q & A


The reduction of localized fat or mesotherapy is a minimally invasive method to remove fat cells. Many very small injections of a lipolytic agent are made into the fat pockets under the skin. This liquefies fat cells and ejects them from the body through the lymphatic system. Synergism of two components of Phosphatidyl Choline and Deoxycholic acid is used in this combination. This approach is effective in removing excess fat anywhere in the body, it also could be used to eliminate lipomas as well.

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a medical procedure for the treatment of cellulite. It involves the application of appropriate cocktails directly to the middle layer of the skin (mesoderm) where the problem originated. By combining several different substances, we get a cellulite cocktail that is tailored to each client individually. The anti-cellulite cocktail is applied with thin needles. The injections can cause a slight redness that passes quickly and after which the bruises disappear after a few days.

Mesotherapy against cellulite is done once a week. For a longer-term effect, it is necessary to do a series of 6-10 treatments.

 

Get Rid of Cellulite With Mesotherapy

In a cellulite-free body, there are five to six millimeters of adipose tissue between the skin and muscle. When cellulite is present, that layer is enlarged by one to six inches.

Cellulite is a deformity that forms under the skin on a woman’s body. It is made up of fats and accumulated toxins. Cellulite is always accompanied by poor venous and lymphatic circulation. It is referred to as the orange peel because its texture is irresistibly reminiscent of the fruit.

Cellulite occurs more commonly in women. Cellulite is most common on the thighs and gluteus, although it can also occur on the abdomen and arms. Men experience cellulite less frequently. Modern lifestyles, lack of movement, and inadequate nutrition have dramatically increased the number of women who have persistent cellulite.

The removal requires long and serious treatments. Cellulite is a disease that is a major aesthetic problem, it has a great impact on women’s confidence, so it is necessary to start with adequate therapy as soon as possible. Anti-cellulite treatments are much more effective in combating cellulite than exercises for cellulite and diet against cellulite.

What Are the Main Causes of Cellulite?

The main culprits for cellulite are genetics, sedentary life, insufficient physical activity, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, stress, consumption of industrial foods with additives and preservatives, etc.

The longer you leave cellulite untreated, the more difficult it is to deal with it. With time the skin becomes thinner and weaker. Cellulite doesn’t have much to do with your age or weight. It occurs in slim girls at puberty also.

Recesses and bulges on the skin cause insecurity for many women. Whether it is barely noticeable or very visible, cellulite requires serious treatment.

How to Remove Cellulite?

The combination of several different procedures gives the best results in the fight against cellulite. After years of experience, we can say that mesotherapy against cellulite is a winning combination.
 

How Is Mesotherapy Procedure Performed?

Thin, elastic needles introduce a cocktail to different skin depths, depending on the severity of the problem and the type of skin.

Cellulite mesotherapy, depending on the region, lasts from about fifteen minutes to an hour, after which the patient can return to his or her usual appointments. The procedure itself may be a little painful, but it is possible to use an anesthetic cream in patients who are sensitive.

What Are the Side Effects and Complications of Mesotherapy?

If performed by trained specialists, mesotherapy is a safe procedure with minimal or no risks. However, just like any other medical procedure, there are possible side effects that should be considered.

Side effects that have been reported following a mesotherapy treatment for cellulite removal include:

  • itching
  • redness
  • rash
  • swelling
  • pain
  • nausea
  • dark patches on the skin
  • bumps at the injection site
  • infection
  • bruising
  • formation of scar tissue, etc.

Our doctor will evaluate for each patient. She will recommend a number of treatments to get the desired look. The effect will be visible after two or three treatments. The optimum number of treatments is generally six to eight, after which the skin appears firmer, safer, and the region is reduced in circumference.

It is desirable to maintain the achieved effect with one mesotherapy per month for the next several months. To maintain the results, it is necessary to change your diet, drink enough water, and introduce physical activity.

Who should not undergo mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is not recommended for:
  • pregnant women
  • people with autoimmune diseases
  • people with a blood clotting disorder
  • people who are allergic to any of the cocktail ingredients
  • people with bacterial skin infections

Mesotherapy vs. Liposuction

Mesotherapy compared to liposuction is a non-surgical alternative for the removal of unwanted fat from certain body parts. Liposuction is a much more expensive surgical procedure. The liposuction recovery period is also longer, up to six weeks. Mesotherapy is less traumatic and more affordable, with a significantly shorter recovery period. Usually, a couple of sessions are needed in order to achieve the desired results.

Can Mesotherapy Be Combined With Other Rejuvenation Procedures?

Certainly. Depending on what you want to achieve, mesotherapy gives excellent results in combination with laser rejuvenation, PRP method, hyaluronic fillers, etc.

How Much Does Mesotherapy Procedure for Cellulite Cost?

The exact cost of mesotherapy for cellulite treatment will depend on the type of treatment you are getting and the number of sessions you will need to reach the desired results. On average, a single mesotherapy procedure costs ranges from $200 to $600. Keep in mind you will need more than one session.

As mesotherapy for cellulite treatment is a cosmetic procedure and not a medical necessity, insurance companies don’t cover its expenses.
