mesotherapy for spot weight reduction:
The medications used in Mesotherapy destroy the connective tissue bands and melt the trapped fat, creating a smooth, dimple-free appearance. In Mesotherapy, very small doses of different medications are administered in specific areas, depending on the condition being treated. The medicines and plant extracts that we use at Mesotherapy Associates, P.C. is obtained from local pharmaceutical companies in the United States. All medicines used are FDA-approved for their use.
Mesotherapy is a painless alternative to liposuction. Fat are eliminated from targeted sites using the same techniques as above. Unlike liposuction, only the fat (not the fat cells) is removed. After ten sessions, patients can lose two to six inches in their saddle bags, hips, thighs, waist, love handles, back fat and chin when medicine is placed in those areas. Mesotherapy is not used to reduce fatty tumors or breast tissue in women.
how does it work?
Using a very tiny needle (0.4 to 0.6 cm or the size of an eyelash), the medication is injected into the mesoderm painlessly. This occurs because the needle is specially manufactured to deliver the medicine in a series of painless injections in a typical treatment. Sometimes the technique of “multi-pricking” is used, where a number of swift, painless injections are concentrated in a specific area. Although “multi-pricking” can be done by hand, we at Mesotherapy Associates employ a mechanical delivery system that delivers the medicine in a more accurate fashion with even less discomfort to the patient. Patients have universally responded that the treatments cause less pain than a momentary, light pinch.
All patients undergoing Mesotherapy will be asked to follow a natural healthy diet, which will be easy to follow; And because toxins are eliminated, lots of water is used to flush these substances, along with dissolved fat, out of the body. Exercise is needed to circulate the medications used, with walking or another form thereof.

Mesotherapy has numerous advantages. It eliminates side effects and contraindications associated with many medications. Often times, the intolerance of medications has to do with it reaching parts of the body that have no need for it. Thus people who ordinarily could not be treated with a medication they need, because of an adverse reaction will be able to tolerate the drug in the Mesotherapeutic form. And because the target area is reached immediately and undiluted, the amount of the drugs needed is greatly reduced and the effects can be realized more quickly. Due to the efficiency of the method, the applications are extremely extensive. The only side effect is the possibility of minor bruising. Mesotherapy benefits include:
- Improved blood flow to the area
- Dissolving excess fat deposits
- Removing fibrotic hardening connective tissue
- Improved lymphatic drainage
- Get rid of love handles, bra bulge, saddlebags etc.
