No matter the season or what the weather, extra fat and cellulite are never welcome to a spa girl. And, if hitting the gym and eating healthily aren’t producing the results you’re looking for, medical spas are where it’s at for offering slimming treatments to keep your bum looking less bumpy and thighs looking a little less thick. One such treatment is Mesotherapy.

What it’s all about:
A Mesotherapy treatment consists of any injection of medication into the skin, fat or other tissues of the middle layer of skin (the mesoderm). After being developed by French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in the early 1950s and modified up until present day, Mesotherapy has become a popular non-surgical offering in medical spas worldwide. 

Medical spa Mesotherapy generally introduces microscopic quantities of homeopathic medications, traditional pharmaceuticals, vitamins, minerals and amino acids through multiple shallow injections into the skin. Most commonly, though, Mesotherapy is used to reduce the appearance of cellulite, promote weight loss or revitalize aging skin. It has also been used to treat acne, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles.

Therefore, depending on the desired result, different types of medication or vitamin-rich substances are injected into the mesoderm. For example, the emphysema medication Aminophylline is used in Mesotherapy to treat cellulite because it has been proven to break down the fatty tissue that causes cellulite.

What to expect:
During a Mesotherapy consultation, your Health Care Professional will determine what sort of medication will best suit the area you are treating. So, Mesotherapy injections are not one-size fits all; Mesotherapy “cocktails” should be formulated specifically for those receiving the injections.

Once the Health Care Professional determines the best medication (or combination of medications) for you, he or she will numb the area to be treated with a topical anesthetic. The anesthetic will dull the slight burning sensation common to Mesotherapy injections. Next, the Health Care Professional will perform anywhere from 20 to 50 swift injections (depending on the size of the area to be treated) at the site of the procedure with a small, thin needle.

Following the procedure, most patients experience a bit of discomfort, and may also experience swelling, bruising, tenderness and itching to varied degrees.

Keep in mind:
Before you rush out to your favorite spa to indulge in a Mesotherapy treatment, ensure that your Mesotherapy treatment is the best it can be. Because all people react differently to medications and substances, be sure that your physician performs an allergy test before trying a full Mesotherapy treatment if the drug Procaine will be used in your treatment. This will help avoid any serious allergic reaction. Also, most Health Care Professionals who administer Mesotherapy suggest their clients undergo five Mesotherapy treatments at two to four week intervals to see optimal results. So, stick with a medical professional who is able to perform all treatments personally. Plus, be sure to choose an experienced Medical Professional who can show you “Before and After” photos from the clinic’s own procedures.

Finally, stay active after your procedure. Medical professionals encourage patients to  exercise regularly and keep a healthful diet to maximize the effects of Mesotherapy treatments.
