What is 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 millimetres under the skin into the problematic area through a series of tiny and almost painless micro injections to deliver healing or corrective or corrective treatments. The technique was pioneered by Dr Michel Pistor in 1952 and was given formal recognition by the French academy of medicine in 1987. Mesotherapy is currently used by more than 15000 medical practitioners, throughout Europe, Great Brittan and South America. Mesotherapy has been used in the treatment of acne, arthritis, joint problems and sport injuries, as well as for cosmetic purposes, such as reducing cellulite and for weight loss. While each Mesotherapy treatment may involve a great number of small injections, these can be quickly administered. Mesotherapy blocks the body’s ability to store fat and stimulates the body’s ability to burn fat. It is not considered an alternative to an educated and healthy lifestyle, but it is a very useful tool to have in a weight loss and skin rejuvenating practise. Mesotherapy has a wide variety of other uses, depending on the needs of the patient. These include fighting infections, relieving pain and muscle spasms and re-growing hair. However one of the most common usages is for the treatment of cellulite, skin toning, removing stubborn fat and weight loss. Obviously the combination of substances injected would depend on the desired effect. Mesotherapy has a lot of advantages. It eliminates the side-effects and contra-indications associated with many medications. Often medications 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 downtime, no bandages or an anaesthetic.
