All You Need to Know about Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy involves the injection of small amounts of medication, vitamins and amino acids into the mesoderm (the middle layer of skin). The substance is placed just millimeters under the skin into the problematic area through a series of tiny and almost painless micro-injections to deliver healing or corrective treatments. Mesotherapy was pioneered by Dr Michel Pistor in 1952 and was given formal recognition by the French Academy of Medicine in 1987. It is currently used by more than 15 000 medical practitioners, throughout Europe, Great Britain and South America.
Mesotherapy blocks the body’s ability to store fat and stimulates the body’s ability to burn fat.
Mesotherapy has many advantages. It eliminates the side-effects and contra-indications associated with many medications. Often medication intolerance is due to the fact that medication reaches parts of the body that has no need for it. Because the target area is reached immediately and the substance is at the correct concentration, the amount of the drug needed is greatly reduced and the effects can be realized more rapidly. The only side-effect is the possibility of minor bruising. Mesotherapy is virtually painless, requires no down-time, no bandages or an aesthesia.
After a thorough evaluation by the medical practitioner, the target areas are administered, covering the whole of the area. There are various methods of injecting, such as injection guns, multiple needle administration apparatus and ordinary syringes and small gauge needles.
The injection procedure is carried out every two weeks for 8 to 10 sessions. In the week between the treatments, the patient must have an Endermologie® treatment to smooth the area and encourage circulation.
