Mesotherapy Injections – Treatment
What happens during the procedure?
A special automatic needling gun or small needle with syringe administered by the doctor delivers very small quantities of the medical cocktail under the skin in the areas of concern. A strong local anaesthetic cream is used to minimise discomfort, along with cold ice compressors.
How long does the procedure take?
20-30 minutes per session, depending on the size of the area treated. You will require 6-12 sessions, 1-4 weeks apart, for best results.
How long will my recovery be and what can I expect?
Most people experience some soreness, redness, slight bruising and swelling and itching, which will subside in 1-2 days, but time off work isn’t necessary. Bruising is common, but will generally disappear after a week and can usually be covered by clothing. A rare side effect of Mesotherapy is nodules under the skin – in the form of small, pea-like lumps. Usually only noticeable by touch, they are not serious and will dissolve in a few weeks or months.
Mesotherapy Injections – Results
Mesotherapy has a long history of success and will work for everyone, however the results do vary from person to person. The results are long-lasting provided a regular good diet and exercise plan is adhered to.
Mesotherapy Injections – Safety
This procedure has been performed safely around the world since the 1950s, and has become increasing popular. Dr Kargin at Dr Kargin Clinc has been practicing mesotherapy for 12 years. She is one of the leading doctors who introduced mesotherapy in UK. She is the first doctor who introduced “NO NEEDLE MESOTHERAPY” in the world. She also developed protocols for different treatment conditions with needle or non-needle mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy is a series of micro-injections of a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, medications and amino acids into the mesoderm or middle layer of skin to deliver healing or corrective treatment to a specific areas of the body. The technique was invented in 1952 by French Physician Dr. Michel Pistor and has been described as being a treatment for bodysculpturing, cellulite reduction and skin rejuvenation.
It was discovered that when small amounts of medications were injected into the mesoderm, blood flow would increase to the treated area, dissolving excess fat deposits, improving lymphatic drainage and removing hardened connective tissue. The average number of treatments range from 6 to 10.
Mesotherapy is a safe, non-surgical procedure for reducing cellulite and localised small fat deposits. Cellulite is localised fat that appears as dimpling on the thighs, bottom, legs and arms. It affects the majority of women over the age of 30, and being overweight is not a cause. In fact, many people with cellulite are slim and exercise regularly. Cellulite is due to a combination of poor micro-circulation close to the skin’s surface, fat herniations, weakening connective tissue, lymphatic congestion and hormonal imbalance.
Mesotherapy targets the superficial layers of skin (the mesoderm) to promote the body’s circulatory, lymphatic and immune system and, in turn, reduce the appearance of cellulite. Problem areas are treated via a series of micro-injections of a cocktail of substances that help metabolise and dissolve unwanted fat, as well as improve the abnormal microcirculation under the skin that is a cause of cellulite dimpling. The result is that the overlying skin appears smoother. Mesotherapy is not a replacement for liposuction, which is a surgical procedure that removes large volumes of deeper fat.
Mesotherapy can be applied anywhere where cellulite and unwanted fat occurs on the body. The most common areas treated are the thighs and buttocks, abdomen and waistline. The upper arms and under the chin can also be treated.
