Mesotherapy treatment is a non surgical cosmetic solution aimed at diminishing problem areas in your body, such as cellulite, excess weight, body contouring, and face/neck rejuvenation, just to name a few. It is administered via numerous injections containing various type of CE approved medecines, vitamins and minerals.
It is introduced into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and tissue underneath the skin.
The content mixture of the injection varies in accordance with each unique case and specific area to be treated.
Mesotherapy can also assist in reducing pain, and in replenishing hair loss in both men and women.
The immediate weight loss results associated with liposuction cannot be compared to the results of Mesotherapy treatments. However Mesotherapy is less expensive and less invasive.
The Mesotherapy is a relatively painless procedure due to the use of anesthetic creams applied to the area prior to injection, cause no scarring, sedation is not necessary.
Though it is new in United Kingdom, Mesotherapy has been widely used for the last 50 years in France and South America. The reviews in UK and USA are outstanding though controversial, as many practitioners firmly believe that cosmetic surgery is the better option.
The exciting field of Mesotherapy is a new trend in modern medecine. patients not only want to be in good health, they also want to enjoy life, to be fit and minimise the effects of ageing.
Indeed, Patients are now requesting quick, non-invasive procedures with minor downtime and very little risk.
However, every practitioner has his « own cocktails » of drugs.
The fear is that they don’t know what they are injecting, or the quantity to inject.
At this time mesotherapists in UK don’t have to be licensed, although efforts are under way and conduct by the SoMZA to establish a diploma in Mesotherapy by offering proper training.
