Mesotherapy employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients into subcutaneous fat. Causing fat cells to collapse and be flushed out the body by lymphatic system.
Mesotherapy is especially effective when combined with other treatments like:
The main advantage in doing injections of vitamin C is to rejuvenate the skin, so skin always looks fresh, clean, brighter, more youthful & glowing. Vitamin C is a natural skin lightener and brightener and will improve the damage caused by environmental factors like sun, smoke & pollution. Vitamin C is also an anti-oxidant so it helps fight the free-radicals in the skin that lead to premature aging.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance already in our body. It hydrates the skin by holding in water. It helps to plump the skin and softens fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid compliments other dermal fillers (restylane, juvederm & radiesse) between treatments.
Treatments most properly called “injection lipolysis” have been commonly associated with the term “mesotherapy” to reduce or eliminate unwanted local accumulations of fat.
Injection lipolysis is typically done with trade-named products such as Lipodissolve™ and Lipostabil™ or with proprietary formulations provided by compounding pharmacies. The one common ingredient in all injection lipolysis formulations is phosphatidylcholine (PPC).
Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) and sodium deoxycholate (DC) are both phospholipids, emulsifiers, and surfactants. PPC is the most abundant phospholipid component of cell membranes, a precursor to acetylcholine, and a constituent of lipoproteins. DC is a constituent of bile. Both substances are naturally present in the human body.
In contrast to injections into the mesoderm, injection lipolysis treatments are delivered into the subcutaneous fat. In both cases, the depth of injection is critical to prevent damage to fascia. It has been hypothesized that treatment with PPC and DC reduces subcutaneous fat by adipocyte necrosis due to direct toxic or surfactant effects.
In the use of PPC for aesthetic medicine one has to aware that the ideal candidate for this procedure is the patient close to the normal weight, that have a good diet and exercise and still have stubborn fat deposits. Before each session, the patient should consume large amounts of water and do a lymphatic massage and exercise. Usually between 6 to 9 sessions are needed two to three weeks apart.
