Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic solution/medicine treatment. Mesotherapy employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients into subcutaneous fat. Mesotherapy is a common term describing a procedure/technique that employs a series of shots to perfuse liquid preparations inclusive of medications and other substances into the subcutaneous tissue (the “mesoderm”) to treat local therapeutic, medical and aesthetic conditions. It does not represent treatment of a particular medical or cosmetic condition, although it has commonly been publicized and employed as a method for anti-aging and as a means of “melting fat” for body contouring. The most distinguished indication seems to be for the reduction of adipose tissue including cellulite, lipomas and weight loss, for which it has been promoted as a “non-surgical alternative to liposuction.” Mesotherapy is different from a method of treating adipose tissue with subcutaneous injections of deoxycholate alone or in combination with phosphatidylcholine. We are at Dermesthetic have the experienced dermatologists and cosmetologists who have additional clinical and experimental studies necessary to more definitively establish the safety and efficacy of these treatments.

The alternative names of mesotherapy procedure are “ThinJection”, “Lipodissolve”, “Lipotherapy”, “Mesoplasty”.
