Mesotherapy for Fat Loss: What You Need to Know

Dissolve Fat with Mesotherapy Injections

Despite following a healthy diet and increasing your exercise, you’re struggling to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat from specific areas of your body. Mesotherapy can help you eradicate fat from specific parts of your body so that you can achieve your desired physique. New Medical Spa offers mesotherapy throughout the Richmond area to assist our clients with meeting their aesthetic goals. Here’s what you need to know about this fat removal procedure. 

What is Mesotherapy?

Originally developed in 1952 by a French physician, mesotherapy uses injectable medications to remove fat from specific areas of the body. Mesotherapy uses small needles to inject the appropriate combination of ingredients into your desired treatment spot. The fat is then excreted from your body. 

What Areas Can Mesotherapy Treat?

It’s possible to treat several areas of the body with mesotherapy, including the legs, arms, stomach, buttocks, and neck. While many patients see ideal results after a few sessions, it’s possible to undergo several mesotherapy sessions for more dramatic results.

In addition to fat removal, mesotherapy can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What are the Benefits of Mesotherapy?

One advantage of mesotherapy is that it’s a non-surgical treatment for removing fat from specific areas of the body. This means that there’s no downtime associated with the procedure. The needles used for mesotherapy are small, making the procedure as minimally painful as possible. 

It’s possible to customize your mesotherapy injections to better suit your needs. For example, if you want to remove fat while tightening loose skin, your injections may contain ingredients to help smooth and firm the skin. Or, if fat removal is your primary goal, your injection will use ingredients that dissolve fat.

As long as you maintain your weight, the results from mesotherapy are permanent.

What Can You Expect During a Mesotherapy Appointment?

A mesotherapy session is performed in-office. If you’re sensitive to injections, we’ll apply a numbing cream 10 to 15 minutes before beginning your injections.

Your appointment will usually take less than 30 minutes, making it a terrific alternative for clients with busy schedules. You may resume your normal activities after your appointment. Some individuals experience a little swelling or soreness, but this should go away within a week. 

How Does Mesotherapy Compare to Other Fat Removal Options?

There are a couple of other non-surgical options for spot-reducing fat. BodySculp uses laser energy to permanently destroy fat cells; these cells are then eliminated through your body’s lymphatic system. Mesotherapy injects fat-dissolving ingredients into your body rather than relying on laser energy to destroy fat cells. Both fat removal treatments are minimally painful and require no downtime.
