Mesotherapy Treatment

By Alan Hood

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a fat and cellulite treatment that is practice by over 20,000 doctors in France. The Mesotherapy treatment consists in injecting a micro amount of medicamentous substances right under the skin, in the direct vicinity of the problem to be treated. Mesotherapy is used for a variety of things including, weight loss, cellulite removal, face and neck rejuvenation, and hair loss.

Mesotherapy origins

The origins and principle of mesotherapy is a medical treatment consisting in managing drugs by microinjections in the skin. This technique was developed in 1952 by Doctor Michel Pistor a French doctor. The overall philosophy of Mesotherapy treatment translated from French is: "To inject little, seldom, at the good place". In other words, a drug must traverse the smallest possible way. This philosophy is key to insuring that the solution is injected to benefit the problem which one wants to deal with, versus treating the entire body.

By using the localized mesotherapy treatment philosophy a mesotherapy doctor avoids the problem of substances passing in blood and from going in the stomach or the liver. With other type treatments the body can be faced with unintended damage that is often caused by the sometimes aggressive drugs.

What occurs at the first consultation?

This is necessary because it helps the doctor decide when and if to begin the treatment.

What is the cost of Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy treatments range from $300-$550 per area per treatment. An initial consultation and examination is needed. The costs for these initial consultations typically run $250 to $275. As with any treatment, mesotherapy in Houston will cost less than Los Angeles mesotherapy.

Are there Mesotherapy side effects that I should be concerned with?

Barring allergy to a Mesotherapy ingredient, the side effects are usually limited to bruising. The bruises as a rule fade within one week. It is recommended that allergies and other sensitivities should be discussed during the first consultation.

Can I go back to work after the treatment?

The patient is able to return to work immediately after treatment.

How long do the benefits last?

Doctors practicing mesotherapy treatment claim that the areas undergoing Mesotherapy treatment areas will remain free of undesired fat as long as the patient continues to practice healthy dietary habits and ongoing exercise.
