What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a natural, safe, and minimally invasive alternative to liposuction. This cosmetic therapy originated in France in 1952 and has been gaining popularity in the United States. Mesotherapy involves a series of micro-injections into the mesoderm (middle layer of the skin) to stimulate lipolysis (the breakdown of fat). This treatment not only helps to dissolve localized fat, it treats the underlying conditions that cause fat to accumulate in certain areas, preventing it from returning. A randomized, double-blind clinical trial concluded that “mesotherapy is safe and effective in the treatment of localized fat deposits” (Intong, et. al).
What is injected?
Mesotherapy incorporates the use of plant extracts, homeopathics and/or vitamins. In our office, we use a clinically-proven, safe, and natural homeopathic injectible formula called Omeoformula 1, which is formulated specifically for localized adiposity. Omeoformula 1 addresses the major factors that contribute to fat deposits. It works on multiple body systems to remove waste products from the body, stimulate the breakdown of fat cells, improve sluggish metabolism, tone the skin, support the tissues, and drain excess fluid.
What are the treatments like?
With mesotherapy, short and very thin needles are used and only small amounts of the injectible solution is needed to create the desired effect. The insertion of the needle is shallow compared to other injections, and fatty areas are less sensitive, so the process is quite painless. A series of micro-injections target your problem areas: the abdomen, back of the arms or legs, buttocks or “double chin”. Additional Omeoformulas may be combined together in one injection (if needed) to tighten the skin and/or break up cellulite.
How many treatments do I need and how long does it last?
For optimal results, a series of 10 treatments is required at 1-2 times per week for 8 weeks. Maintenance injections may be done once a month, if desired. As long as the patient does not gain excessive weight, results are permanent.
Our mesotherapy injection series may be used alone as a part of New Direction’s Ultimate Slim Down Program for weight loss. To learn more, contact our office at 321-972-2940 and schedule your consultation with the doctor today!
