Mesotherapy is a hotly-debated technique which claims to reduce fat and cellulite by injecting various substances directly into the fat layer of the body. It was developed in the 1950s in France, and has since become very popular throughout the world, with particular popularity in the United States. Mesotherapy has a range practitioners, with many cosmetic surgeons offering it as a specialty. Pricing varies depending on the area targeted by the procedure and the number of treatments purchased, but is generally comparable to other minor aesthetic surgeries.
Mesotherapy is touted as being able to reduce fat in 'spot' treatments, with particular focus on notorious problem areas such as the buttocks, love handles, inner thigh, neck and chin. Many practitioners also claim that mesotherapy can help drastically reduce cellulite, eliminate wrinkles, remove scars and even stimulate hair growth.
The procedure itself is fairly straight-forward. A special 'cocktail' of vitamins, minerals and medications is injected directly into the layer of fat located just beneath the skin. The mixture injected is different for each area being treated, and is tweaked depending on the desired effect the practitioner. Once injected, this cocktail theoretically 'melts' away the fat by breaking fat cells down to the point where they can be flushed out through the bowels and kidneys. In the case of treating cellulite, the injection serves to weaken the connective bands of tissue which pin fat down, reducing dimpling and resulting in a cleaner appearance.
