What is Mesotherapy?

Effective treatment for cellulite! 

Discovered in 1952 by French Physician Dr. Michael Pistor, Mesotherapy is an exciting medical procedure used by women worldwide to help improve their skin texture, to treat abnormal fat accumulation, along with cellulite on parts of the body. A course of mesotherapy treatments is always recommended to give optimum results.

How does Mesotherapy work?

Mesotherapy melts the fat in the skin and breaks up the network of connective tissue fibres that form trapping fat cells and resulting in cellulite. The medicine is injected into the cellulite or fatty tissue to improve circulation of lymphatic and venous drainage by increasing metabolism of the injected area. The fat dissolves and, as occurs when fat is broken down during typical weight loss, is carried through the bloodstream and excreted by kidneys and bowel. Therefore, very little, if any medicine reaches the general circulation.

What is cellulite? 

The medical term for cellulite is Dermatomyoliposclerosis (DMLS). Cellulite results from a combination of fatty tissue and water retention. Typically (although not exclusively) a female problem, it can affect women of all ages irrespective of their weight. In women, fat cells on the lower part of the body store fat six times more readily than those on the upper body. They also release them six times less readily.

Cellulite appears in the subcutaneous level of skin tissue and is often visible on the hips, buttocks and legs. Fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by connective tissue called septae. As water is retained, fat cells held within the perimeters of this area expand and stretch the connective tissue. Eventually this connective tissue contracts and hardens (sclerosis) holding the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissue continues to expand with weight, or water gain. This results in areas of the skin being held down while other sections bulge outward, resulting in the lumpy appearance.

  • Genetic predisposition to fat accumulation
  • Inevitable hormones changes throughout life

Following your initial consultation, in some instances treatments can be carried out immediately. Your individual treatment plan will detail how many treatments you require. Mesotherapy treatment is performed once or twice per week over a period of 4 to 8 weeks. Mesotherapy treatment is recommended for all types of cellulite.

When the desired effects are achieved, all that is required is annual maintenance over a 4 - 6 week period. Overall, with a moderate amount of lifestyle change, Mesotherapy can provide long lasting and measurable improvements.

Are there any side effects of treatment? 

A common side effect of Mesotherapy is bruising, which generally resolves after a week. Mesotherapy can be a little uncomfortable, but not painful. It is best to avoid contact with the sun directly after treatment as this may produce pigmentation.

Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. The procedure can be used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms, and hands.

How much does Mesotherapy cost?

Prices start from as little as £100
