What Is Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy was discovered by a French doctor Dr. Michael Pistor in 1952. A non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment, mesotherapy involves dissolving of ugly cellulite in the body. Over the years, the procedure has gained immense popularity and is increasingly used for body sculpting, skin rejuvenation and cellulite reduction. Mesotherapy targets the problems with microinjections of conventional medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. These injections contain medicines that are highly specific to the condition being treated, making the treatment faster and more effective. Mesotherapy involves injecting small quantity of drugs into the middle layer or mesoderm of the skin, at multiple points on the affected area. These drugs are a combination of plant extracts, minerals, enzymes and fat-dissolving elements that help in nourishing and rejuvenating the metabolism of the body and promoting the production of collagen and elastin. The treatment is becoming increasingly popular because of its less painful and more effective methods.

Mesotherapy Uses
Body Contouring
Mesotherapy helps in the delineating of arms, abdomen, legs and the entire body. Lipodissolve agents are used in mesotherapy to remove the fat by blocking the internal signal of fat uptake. The process helps in triggering the fat release, improving blood circulation and burning energy. Vitamins and amino acid, on the other hand, are used for tightening the sagging skin, giving you an athletic and improved appearance.
Cellulite Reduction
Cellulite or adipose tissue is a problem that affects majority of women over 20 yrs of age. It is caused because of poor circulation, fat herniation, weakening of connective tissue, lymphatic congestion and few hormonal changes. Cellulite appears in the subcutaneous level of the skin tissues, where the fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by connective tissues called ‘sepatae’. Cellulite occurs when the fat cells in the area, retained with water, expand and make the connective tissues stretch.
The connective tissues contract and harden because of the pressure implied on them by the fat tissues. This impact on the connective tissues hold the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissues continue to expand with weight gain, causing certain areas of the skin to bulge outside. Mesotherapy is used to correct these weight gain problem by improving the circulation, strengthening the connective tissues, removing fibrotic and hardening connective tissues, by improving lymphatic drainage and dissolving excess fat.
Hair Restoration

Hair fall generally occur due to poor blood circulation to the scalp, nutritional imbalances and excess of DHT, a hormone in men. Mesotherapy treatment can help you get rid of the hair fall problem, by improving the circulation to the scalp and by stimulating the scalp to naturally grow the lost hair.
