Mesotherapy

What is mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment technique for body shape issues. The technique aims at fixing cellulite, fatty areas, and more with simple injections containing a combination of medications and natural ingredients, which may include:

 

  • Vitamins

  • Minerals

  • Plant extracts

  • Hormones

  • Enzymes

  • Antibiotics

  • Vasodilators

 

During your mesotherapy treatment, your provider at South Florida Preventive Care Group delivers several injections deep into the tissues under your skin using thin needles. 

 

The team might place the injections at different depths or angles depending on what you’re treating. In any case, you’ll likely need to return to South Florida Preventive Care Group for additional mesotherapy sessions to get your desired results.

What does mesotherapy do?

The components of physicals are mostly the same in each case, but your physical might become more rigorous and involved as you age. Your physical may involve:

 

  • A discussion about your personal health and family history

  • A review of your lifestyle and habits (e.g. job type, smoking, alcohol consumption)

  • Weight and height check

  • Blood pressure and heart rate check

  • Purified protein derivative (PPD) test for tuberculosis and other screenings if needed

  • Immunization updates

  • Bodily inspection for unusual growths

  • Stethoscope listening to your heart and lungs

  • Reflex testing

 

You should also mention any recent or recurrent symptoms to your provider during your physical, especially if it’s your first medical visit in a long time. Depending on your current symptoms and medical conditions, your physical may involve additional tests like blood work or a urinalysis.

 

Your physician may also recommend changes to your lifestyle and adjustments to your medication doses to make sure you’re working toward wellness in your daily life.

What are the benefits of mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is often noted as an alternative to liposuction and other surgical fat reduction and reshaping methods. When compared to such treatments, mesotherapy is the preferable option for many patients who would rather not deal with the complications of surgery. 

 

Mesotherapy’s many benefits compared to treatments with similar goals include:

 

  • Minimal discomfort

  • No recovery time

  • No scars

  • No sedation

  • Cost-effectiveness

 

As long as you get your mesotherapy injections from a trained professional, you’ll notice very few, if any, side effects. They might include nausea, pain, or itching, but you can continue going about your day as normal immediately after your appointment. 

How should I prepare for my upcoming mesotherapy appointment?

To prepare for mesotherapy, your provider might advise you to stop taking pain relievers. These medications could put you at risk of bleeding heavily or bruising after your injections. 

 

However, if you stop taking them for just a few days or a week before your appointment, your recovery may be faster and simpler.

 

If you’re not happy with your body fat or cellulite but don’t want to get surgery, mesotherapy is a great treatment option with few, if any, complications. Book your consultation for mesotherapy by phone or online at South Florida Preventive Care Group today.
