A curative conversation

Meant for the intermediate, yet intriguing, mesotherapy cellulite treatment has so far generated a myriad argument regarding its effective yet risky potentials. It’s a known fact that controversy fans the flames of popularity (read: curiosity) higher, so a look at its expansive nature might get rid of a dilemma or two.

What is mesotherapy cellulite treatment?

In simple words, it is a catchall term for a large number of treatments administered to the fat and connective tissue layer under the skin (the middle skin layer). The medications are injected to this particular layer and range from the pharmaceutical drugs to natural substances. Typically French in origin, mesotherapy is a popular treatment for cellulite reduction both in Europe and Latin America.

Effects of mesotherapy

Mesotherapy has been found to be effective against joint pains and psoriasis; it has also been found to speed up weight loss besides aiding to lessen cellulite. It is a less invasive treatment also fixes body contours gone bad by breaking and metabolizing body fat.

Techniques involved

Mesotherapy requires injecting a combination of different medications in the middle skin layer; these medications are known to break fat and metabolizing it. Ingredients vary from phosphatidylcholine (a natural phospho-lipid that breaks up dietary fat) to aminophylline (medication for asthma) to herbal and/or homeopathic substitutes; however, the lack of a set guideline regarding substance usage makes mesotherapy a hot target for the critics.

The controversy on mesotherapy cellulite treatment

The opposition is chiefly from the mainstream medical community; as for people, the majority is happy witnessing the results. However, despite the immediate beneficial effects of mesotherapy, it is wise to study upon its occasional allergic results as well as on the related toxicities.

As spoken extensively in the journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the safety and effectiveness of Mesotherapy patients have been highly questioned; while the studies speak about almost a 100 percent chance of developing infections, allergies and toxicity, it claims the way the ingredients of mesotherapy interact with cellulite is unknown. The effects; hence are dubious.

However, in reality, patients who have and are still undergoing mesotherapy are happy with the results and their chief concern remains on making sure that the injection devices are actually been sterilized, which always is (except if it is a shady setup); that alone is enough to drive away the fear of bodily infections spreading from one person to another.

As for the infections resulting from using adulterated chemicals, a person needs to check the credibility of the clinic offering this particular treatment for cellulite. As for its long-lasting effect, mesotherapy needs a proper diet structure to be followed besides appropriate exercises and plenty of clean water.

Most patients think the mesotherapy treatment to be a one-time solution and hence go easy on these. But truth remains that cellulite can be reduced and its development can be controlled but not entirely stopped.

Mesotherapy: The body parts treated

Several cosmetic procedures use mesotherapy when every other process for rejuvenating the face and neck skin fails; the method replenishes the essential requirements (minerals and vitamins) back to a disorderly skin. It is also used for creating the right body contours and used as an alternative to liposuction to remove excess fat from almost all the body parts in a far more fruitful yet less expensive way.

Conditions treated with Mesotherapy

Firstly, it is cellulite reduction and its elimination; as a secondary effect, mesotherapy opens up the blocked lymphatic channels and the capillaries to enhance microcirculation in a much less painful manner. The effects are longer lasting (the injected ingredients keep working on the fat tissues) than ordinary liposuction that just removes excess fat and does nothing to stop its build-up again. This is because mesotherapy removes the fat from the cells and not the entire cell itself, unlike liposuction. Thus, to summarize, mesotherapy is ideal for treating:

  • A poor blood and lymphatic circulation.
  • Defective connective tissues.
  • Cellulite and enlarged fat cells resulting from poor diet structures and inadequate nutrition.
