Mesotherapy FAQ

What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a technique which has been used in France for over 50 years, where small amounts of natural compounds including vitamins and supplements are injected into fat and the connective tissue of the skin (called the mesoderm) typically for cosmetic reasons including reduction of cellulite and fat.
What does the procedure involve?
An injection is administered just below the surface of the skin at the location of the problem area. It can be used just about anywhere on the body, but is mostly used to treat the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, knees, and ankles.
What are the ingredients in the injections?
The solution consists of various vitamins, minerals, enzymes, plant extracts, anesthetics, medications and amino acids. The ingredients vary depending on the needs of the patient and the effect desired while allowing for a greater level of safety when issues such as drug interactions and allergies exist.
How many treatments are required before the results are visible?
A treatment cycle could require as few as 4 and as many as 10 treatments or more depending on the size of the area being treated and the results desired.
Are the treatments painful?
The procedure has minimal discomfort, but if a patient is sensitive to needles, local anesthetic or numbing cream can be used. The discomfort level is often compared to that of waxing.
What benefits does Mesotherapy have over surgical techniques such as Liposuction?
The primary advantage of Mesotherapy over Liposuction is that it is a non-invasive procedure and therefore does not have the risks and downtime associated with surgery. Liposuction permanently removes the fat cells and is arguably a more permanent solution; however, it is a frequent problem with liposuction to have visibly uneven results which can be treated with Mesotherapy.
How much does Mesotherapy cost?
A treatment may run anywhere from $350-$600 per area per treatment with discounts for packages. Please consult the doctor for a free consultation to determine your individual needs and cost.
What are the side effects and risks?
The side effects of Mesotherapy are extremely minimal and usually are limited to minor bruising.
Can I go back to work after the treatment?
There is no need for recovery time and you should be able to return to normal activities immediately.
How long do the benefits last?
Patients who make a commitment to maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle following treatment should see their results last. Some patients require some maintenance every six to twelve months.
