Have you ever looked at superstars and models and wondered do they really invest time in vigorous exercises and religiously follow the long skincare routines that they promote? With the busy work schedules they have, it is hard to believe that they are left with any time for self-care. Truth is, they have a team of stylists, aesthetic doctors, and beauticians working for them to make them look perfect. One of the aesthetic treatment all these celebrities are receiving is mesotherapy, that is ideal for skin rejuvenation and fat loss.
Mesotherapy is popular for improving your skin texture, diminishing the pigmentation, marks, scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections.
What is Mesotherapy?
It is a treatment plan for skin in which a series of micro-injections deliver high-value nutrients in the intradermal layer of the skin. The droplets of vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, and other nutrients are pushed underneath the skin layer using fine needles on a mechanized gun. These injections can be administered to cover the entire face or selective focused areas.
The cocktail of nutrients used in mesotherapy has no FDA-approved formula therefore the treatment must be supervised by a certified and experienced doctor. Only FDA approved products must be used.
Do Mesotherapy Injections hurt?
Minor bleeding and discomfort are to be expected during the procedure but as the treatment is given after the application of topical anesthesia patients are unlikely to experience any pain. After the topical anesthesia wears off, there is some inflammation and discomfort (rarely minor bruising), but these side-effects go away on their own within a day or two.
What are the benefits of Mesotherapy Injections?
Mesotherapy is an established treatment for nourishing the skin as the nutrients are directly administered under the skin from where they are readily absorbed. It helps to maintain youthful skin with a rich supply of nutrients. It is also referred to as Meso Glow therapy because of the glossy and glowy look it gives to the skin.
Mesotherapy reduces the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. The fine needles of injection puncture tiny holes in the skin which trigger collagen production. This also helps in the formation of supporting tissues under the skin uplifting and firming the facial skin. It also triggers the self-healing process, increasing the cellular turn over thus rejuvenating the dull and aging skin.
This same technique can be used for reducing cellulite and fat from various body parts, but a different set of nutrients will be injected under the skin to meet that goal.
Does mesotherapy work for belly fat?
Yes, mesotherapy helps in the reduction of fat from the neck, chin, abdomen, thighs, and other parts of the body.
How long does it take to see results from mesotherapy?
After your first session of mesotherapy, you will see the most significant improvement after two weeks. To receive the best results you must have four to six sessions of mesotherapy at least three weeks apart from each other. Using this protocol you will be able to achieve results that will last for 12 to 18 months. Using sunblock, eating healthy, and maintaining an active lifestyle can help you maintain the results even longer.
Sure it feels great to look good but it is also important to understand that many sub-standard saloons and beauticians are offering the mesotherapy. These self-proclaimed beauticians and quacks can do more harm than good. Please make sure you are consulting a certified doctor with an apt amount of experience in the service you are seeking.
