What Is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is still one of the most popular procedures for cellulite removal. Mesotherapy is a non surgical, natural way of targeting the fat layers under the skin. With mesotherapy, a qualified practitioner will use a needle to inject a natural solution just under the skin. This solution helps your body remove cellulite creating smoother skin. It can work on the arms, belly, chin, and  love handle. Mesotherapy helps your body to detoxify, since many of your toxins are stored in your fat cells.

Mesotherapy has been featured on television shows such as 48 Hours, The View, 20/20, and in national newspapers such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, and USA Today, as well as many woman’s magazines including People Magazine, W Magazine, Allure, Elle, among others.

With the explosion in awareness about cosmetic enhancement many people are looking for a kinder, gentler way.  Less is more.

Mesotherapy seems to fit that bill.

LipoBodySculpture of Houston Announces New Location

LipoBodySculpture of Houston – experts in Smartlipo, VASER lipo, and mesotherapy – have announced the opening of a new location, providing the perfect locale for both men and women in the Houston area looking to dramatically sculpt their bodies – without dramatic surgery.

Dr. Raul Rodriguez of LipBodySculpture of Houston and his expert staff who specialize in Smart Lipo, VASER Lipo, and mesotherapy are pleased to announce the opening of their doors at a new location – 546 Waugh Drive, Houston, Texas. Houston residents as well as out of town patients now have equal access to some of the country’s most advanced body fat sculpting services in a quaint and tranquil setting that will literally make one stop and take a deep, relaxing breath.

The expertise of Dr. Rodriguez and his staff combines over 20 years of surgical experience and the advanced laser lipolysis technologies of Smartlipo as well as VASER Lipo. While most people are familiar with traditional liposuction and tummy tucks, increasingly women and men are seeking less invasive alternatives to conventional body shaping techniques. Reasons most cited by patients selecting less invasive procedures include reduced downtime and less risk than conventional invasive procedures.

For example, traditional liposuction requires bulky tubes to suction away fat. The result is more pain, bruising, larger scars from incisions and a lengthy recovery period.

Smartlipo, known as laser lipolysis, laser liposuction and VASER Lipo, an innovative ultrasound technology, are two exceptional and popular alternatives to conventional liposuction – especially for those seeking a solution for troublesome fatty areas without a drastic interruption in their lifestyle.

VASER Lipo is more suitable for larger fatty areas. Ultrasonic energy targets fat tissue, emulsifies it, and through gentle suction and massage, the fat is removed from the body. Because the ultrasound is tissue selective, other tissue such as connective tissue, nerves, and veins are left intact.

Both Smartlipo and VASER Lipo are performed at Dr. Rodriguez’s new Houston clinic and do not require a general anesthetic such as used in conventional liposuction. This means a more rapid recovery without painful or potentially dangerous side effects associated with more invasive procedures.
Dr. Rodriguez is a member of The French Society of Mesotherapy and has over seven years of experience implementing the Mesotherapy procedure. He helped introduce the technique to the United State and was featured by Barbara Walters on ABC News 20/20 in 2003.

Smart Lipo (SmartLipo) Is Gentler Than Traditional Liposuction

Smart Lipo (Smartlipo) is gentler than traditional liposuction. Most doctors state patients have less blood loss, down time and only need a local anesthetic. The biggest bonus appears to be that Smartlipo promotes skin tightening. Within the next 6-8 weeks, the skin and surrounding areas will remodel and adjust to the body contour. This is a gradual process and the best results are seen after 2 months. The downtime is minimal and the patient can usually return to work within 24 hours.

Smart Lipo Costs

The SmartLipo (Smart Lipo) cost will depend on the size of the area being treated and the number of areas treated in one session. Price is something that you will need to work out with your physician at the time of your consultation. Costs can range from $3000-$4000 for an area.

Los Angeles Laser Liposuction Offered By Dr. Kendrick Ng

Dr. Kendrick NgDr. Kendrick Ng, los angeles laser liposuction (Smart Lipo) expert, states:

Laser Liposuction, also known as Smart Lipo, is the most advance laser that vaporizes fat by using a tiny laser tip probe that dissolves fat without the need to perform painful suctioning. The procedure is bloodless, allows skin retraction and is performed under local anesthesia. No stitches are required and therefore virtually no unsightly scars. Laser Lipo sculpts fat bulges such as eye bags, tummy, love handles, thighs, bra bulges, double chin, upper-arms and unsightly cellulite. Laser lipo can also remove excess fat in your face!

Laser lipo treats:

  1. Extra fat in cheeks and jowls
  2. Double chin
  3. Remove extra fat in body
  4. Tighten skin in any parts of body without surgery
  5. Permanently decrease excessive sweating in arm pits.

Breast Augmentation Overtakes Liposuction as Top Cosmetic Procedure for 2008

ASAPS, working with an independent research firm, compiled the 12-year national data for procedures performed 1997-2008. A paper-based questionnaire was mailed to 16,000 Board-Certified physicians (6,000 Dermatologists, 6,000 Otolaryngologists, and 4,000 Plastic Surgeons). A total of 894 completed and valid responses (461 Plastic Surgeons, 277 Dermatologists, and 156 Otolaryngologists) were received in time for tabulation.

Final figures have been projected to reflect nationwide statistics and are based exclusively on the Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons; Otolaryngologists; and Dermatologists. The findings have been aggregated and extrapolated to the known population of 23,600 physicians who are Board Certified in these specialties. Though the confidence intervals change by procedure, depending on the grouping’s sample size and the response variance, the overall survey portion of this research has a standard error of +/- 3.21% at a 95% level of confidence.

The top five surgical procedures in 2008:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Liposuction
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Abdominoplasty

The top five non-surgical procedures in 2008:

  • Botox
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers (Juvederm, Restylane)
  • Chemical Peel
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing

Media Obsessed with American Idol Kelly Clarkson’s Weight

Is Kelly Clarkson pregnant? After Kelly Clarkson appeared on American Idol last time, many are left wondering is Kelly Clarkson pregnant? Just because Kelly Clarkson is not stick thin America automatically assumes she is pregnant. I do not believe she is pregnant or has any intentions of getting pregnant anytime soon. Kelly Clarkson gave an interview to USA today and stated the fact she did not want any children. When asked about wanting children she said “Oh, my God, I have no desire.” This article was just published on March 8, 2009, I think that confirms the fact Kelly Clarkson is not pregnant.
