If you want to get rid of your stubborn fats and cellulites but is afraid to go under the knife, there is natural cosmetic treatment for you --- Mesotherapy. Mesotherapy is a safe, non-invasive, no downtime, no discomfort form of treatment for men and women. It is used generally for body sculpting and weight loss, cellulite treatment and “mesolift” skin rejuvenation. It get rids of fat under the chin, in the abdomen, back, buttocks, inner or outer thighs, knees and love handles. It is also an effective remedy for eye bags and fat around the mouth and in the jowl areas. Mesotherapy has no downtime since the treatment only takes 30 minutes or less. It involves no anesthesia and no preparation time. You can go back to work, school, etc. right after the treatment. The treatment involves series of injections (in small amounts) of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other ingredients into the subcutaneous fat. Mesotherapy injections specifically target adipose fat cells by inducing lipolysis, rupture and cell death among adipocytes. These series of treatments are given spaced 1 week apart. Dr. Alonzo states that the number of injections or treatments varies from patient to patient. Usually, average patients need eight to ten, while thin people with problem areas like love handles or saddle bags may require less. It depends on how much fat you have to lose or if you are treating more than one or two areas. Your treatment program will be customized for you. Unlike liposuction, mesotherapy result is not measured by loss of pounds or kilos, but is measured by loss of “inches”, and visible result will be achieved gradually, not instantaneously. It also removes the fat from the fat cell without destroying it. We believe this helps give mesotherapy its natural appearance. Mesotherapy results are permanent as long as you will maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Treatments for cellulite and for mesolift will require maintenance on a six-month to one-year basis. Should you gain weight after completing your program, touch ups will be required. There are only a few possible side effects of mesotherapy treatments, such as short period of burning and itching, flushing, nausea, temporary swelling and soreness but will lasts for a few minutes to maximum of two days. Minimal bruising associated with the injections will gradually disappear within 1 to 2 weeks. Other side effects are vagal response, allergic reaction, infections, hematoma abscess and necrosis. Your medical and health history will be assessed evaluated by Dr. Alonzo during your initial consultation to determine if you are right candidate for this treatment. Generally, you cannot undergo mesotherapy if you are pregnant, diabetic, on multiple medications for heart disease, and with stroke, cancer and blood clots history.
