It is being revered as the new liposuction, but in reality what exactly is this mesotherapy treatment? Self image is a one of the leading concerns of women in the UK and US. Less than three percent of the population of either country is happy in their own skin. In certain commissioned studies, it was determined that three quarters of women have their own body shape cross their mind every day. Nine out of ten women are not satisfied with thighs, hips, and abdomen.
Regardless of sizes and shapes (including women who are slender), cellulite is a problem that affects nearly 90% of British and American women of various age ranges. The beauty cosmetic industry sees millions of dollars being spent on products and surgeries. These include gels, creams, tools, and procedures of all kinds to rid the body of stubborn fat deposits trapped by under-toned skin that cannot be metabolized with exercise or diets. The problem with cellulite is it makes these women feel incredibly insecure about their appearance. This is especially true for the spring and summer months where clothes are more revealing.
Most that have tried beauty products created to reduce cellulite know that they have minimal to no effect. Hence, cosmetic surgery now has a surge of patients turning to minimally invasive technology, such as mesotherapy, for both the body and face.
Mesotherapy is a cosmetic procedure first invented in the 50’s in France to enhance blood circulation to treat rheumatism, sport traumas, and vascular conditions. With its success, it now is predominantly utilized in the cosmetic industry to address weight or skin conditions including rosacea, wrinkles acne, and localized fat deposits and cellulite in the body. This specific procedure involves the injection of a mix of vitamins, medicines, amino acids, and homeopathic ingredients to eliminate problem areas of the body or face. In the instance of cellulite, the fat deposits are metabolized to break away from connective tissue.
Dr. Ray Markowski of Mesotherapy Atlanta, comments on this exclusive treatment for facial conditions, named ‘mesohyal’, and for the body, named ‘mesolipolysis’.
What is ‘Mesohyal’?
Mesohyal, similar to botox, is a minimally-invasive treatment concentrating on the fundamental elements that lead to aging, while at the same time targeting the skin at the surface. It helps to restore the skin’s elasticity and smooth, natural, youthful look.
During aging, the skin beings to lose nutrients which leads to it becoming wrinkly and saggy with the appearance of fine lines. The procedure includes and utilizes fifty-eight of highly effective ingredients that include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, cytokines, peptides, coenzymes, and natural moisture factor hyaluronic acid (HA) for rejuvenation of the skin. HA is naturally found in nearly every cell in the body where the tissues of the skin have the highest concentrations. It happens to be found in the deeper dermal layers and also the surface layer of the skin known as the epidermis forming the smooth, elastic properties of youthful skin. HA is known to bind up to a thousand times its own weight in water, and this is the reason it is frequently regarded as the internal moisturizer of the body. With aging, the skin’s own ability to produce this essential substance.
What are the results of mesohyal?
Mesohyal is not something that will replace a face lift. It is designed to improve skin tone and texture and most patients claim to feel their skin to be tighter and more lifted along with a rejuvenating and natural glow. Patients aiming for a beauty boost that goes above and beyond a manual facial with longer lasting effects should look into a procedure like mesohyal.
What is ‘Mesolipolysis’?
Mesolipolysis is a minimally-invasive treatment, that necessitates several small injections of the aforementioned ingredients into the problem areas beneath the skin to metabolize and eliminate those stubborn, small, unwanted deposits of fat that are resistant to removal by just diet and exercise alone.
Gradually the fat dissolves and is moved through the bloodstream where it is then excreted by kidneys and bowel. Hence, an extremely small amount of medicine reaches the general circulation. If it were to reach the general circulation, the level of medication is so low that it does not have any effects on the rest of the body.
Unlike surgical procedures, these mesolipolysis treatments are generally very simple, and require no almost no post-treatment recovery time, heavy bandages, or anesthesia. Numbing gel is applied if necessary, but the pain level, if any, is extremely minimal.
What parts can be treated?
Mesolypolisis can be used to treat the cheeks, neck, double chins, outer and inner thighs, buttocks, arms, upper and lower parts of the abdomen, shoulders, joints, and back to remove excess fat and provide better skin tone and texture. A physician uses micro injections to insert the active ingredients using a tiny needle directly into the fat deposits. This leads to a natural, gradual dissolving of the fat.
Are there any side effects to this treatment, and do the results keep?
Mesolipolysis can be a little uncomfortable, but not painful. The treatment is painless and requires no anesthesia. Following the procedure, you should relax for approximately 15-30 minutes and to drink 64 ounces of water every day. In the first few hours and days you may experience some itching, swelling, and redness of the areas that were.
There might be some sensitivity to touch, minor bruising, pain at the injection site, and higher fever in the treated area. Those symptoms generally subside quickly and should completely disappear within two to three days. However, if you feel unwell or your condition worsens in any way after this time, you should contact your doctor.
To get the maximum desired results of this treatment, it is recommended to implement changes in your lifestyle and diet alongside your initial treatment. Most patients experience results after just the first or second treatment. However, for optimal results, extra treatments may be necessary.
It is a good idea to avoid direct contact with the sun immediately following the treatment as the sun may increase the possibility of uneven pigmentation. We recommend to keep the treated areas cool for at least 24 hour.
