For our valued clients in the Greater Waco, TX area, Skin and Body Refinery offers mesotherapy. For those are interested in this treatment method to enhance your body’s image, we would like to elaborate on the basics of mesotherapy.
How Does Mesotherapy Work?
As a French-imported medical technique, mesotherapy was developed firstly in 1952 by Dr. Michel Pistor in France. It was originally designed for treatment of vascular and infectious diseases, sports injuries, and the improvement of circulation as the treatment involves the injection of small amounts of various medications into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. When these small amounts of medication are injected into the mesoderm, the underlying fat is melted. Over 15,000 doctors in France and South America have been using the technique since its development and now the U.S. is taking advantage of mesotherapy treatments.
Mesotherapy for Cellulite, Weight Loss & More
With amazing results, mesotherapy is effective in up to 95% of patients according to experts. With the quick fix for cellulite, overall weight loss, or spot weight reduction, patients are delighted with the results. The compounds injected are dictated by the circumstances of treatment, cellulite VS fat targets. In addition to plant extracts and vitamins, a combination of medications like aminophylline and Novocain are generally used. Mesotherapy can treat nearly anyone from those who are frustrated in dealing with stubborn fatty areas such as saddlebags or love handles, to obese people who need treatment on the abdomen, trunk, buttocks, arms, and legs. After the fat melts, it is naturally excreted. Patients don’t gain the weight back as mesotherapy is permanent. Most generally need four treatments to see the dress size reduction or belt notches being lost, though some people can see results after the first treatment. The number of injections at each session varies, being anywhere from 50 to 150 for the weight loss and/or cellulite reduction and professionals recommend 5 to 10 sessions. Being commonly given with a chemical injector or “meso-gun” using a very tiny needle, patients generally report feeling no more sensation than an ant bite at the site of injection. Those that are not ideal candidates are people that are pregnant or undergoing treatment for diabetes or cancer, people are on blood thinners, have blood clots or heart arrhythmia, or other significant major medical problems.

There are other effective outcomes for various other conditions where many medical spas and doctor offices use mesotherapy solely for weight loss and cellulite. Among other illnesses, mesotherapy has long been used in Europe and South America to treat ankle sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, fibromyalgia, hair loss to herpes, as well as Bell’s palsy. Mesotherapy can soon be used for other needs in addition to cosmetic purposes such as hair loss and sports-related injuries across the United States. Mesotherapy is getting a lot of attention due to its weight-loss benefits. Because the same medications that you would take orally are being directly injected and often need only 10% to 20% of the normal oral dose, it is proving to be more effective.
