Mesotherapy is a cosmetic treatment which is most commonly used for resolving issues with excess body fat and cellulite, but can also sometimes be used for treating skin ageing problems, stretch marks, hair loss etc. During mesotherapy, various cocktails are injected in the deepest layer of your skin, hypodermis. These injections may include vitamins, hormones, minerals, plant extracts and other substances which are usually known for their power to induce breakdown of lipids. Body areas which are most often treated for excessive fat and cellulite using mesotherapy are buttocks, upper arms, thighs and abdomen. This cosmetic procedure is also used on the face and neck in order to make them look younger and fresh.

Cocktails used for mesotherapy, which are injected directly into your skin, are based on mixture of homeopathic substances, such as various plant extracts, medicines, vitamins, minerals and hormones. For example, one of the medications which is often used in these cocktails is aminophylline, an emphysema medication, which is also known for its ability to break down fat cells.
Other substances which are being used include:
- Vitamins ACE;
- Gingko biloba extract;
- L-carnitine etc
The mixture which will be injected into your skin during mesotherapy is determined by a professional according to your personal characteristics and needs. This way complications and contradictions are prevented. As the idea of needles and injections may also give you a shiver, it is important to say that needles used for this treatment are very short and thin, so you can feel discomfort, but usually not pain. A mesotherapy treatment usually needs to be repeated 6 to 12 times, depending on the problem you want to solve, each session usually lasting 30 minutes.
Although this treatment is still considered as a type of alternative procedure, it is safe for patients. As this treatment was firstly developed for the purpose of pain relief, its effectiveness in cosmetic purposes still hasn’t been researched enough, and mesotherapy efficiency is thus inconclusive. Still, mesotherapy is very popular and widely spread in treating cosmetic and esthetic problems. If practiced by a skilled professional, this technique can lead to no side effects. Even if they occur, side effects are very mild, and usually include swelling and bruising of treated area, minor rashes and itches and small bumps. All of this disappears after a day or two.
