According to the Mesobeauty Cosmetic Health Institute's website (, mesotherapy involves "microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines and/or vitamins into the mesoderm or middle layer of skin to deliver healing or corrective treatment to a specific area of the body." Simply put, injections are performed in specific areas to reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat and to improve the appearance of the skin.

Mesotherapy is considered an alternative to Liposuction and is a non-surgical procedure. Not only does it not require anesthesia or carry surgical risk, there is not recovery time associated with mesotherapy. With liposuction procedures, fat can come back in alternate sites on the body if significant weight gain is seen. Areas treated with liposuction typically see less fat growth, while areas that were previously thinner will see new fat deposits. However, mesotherapy does not destroy fat cells, allowing for future weight gain to return fat deposits to the original area. This may not necessarily sound like a positive attribute, but it allows for more uniform weight gain without causing new fat to migrate to previously thinner areas.

Mesotherapy can be used for cellulite treatments as well as weight loss. Liposuction does not treat cellulite, nor is it an effective method of weight loss. The benefits of mesotherapy for weight loss will last as long as the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercises. Cellulite treatment must be repeated every six months to one year.

While liposuction typically produces results with one procedure, mesotherapy usually requires multiple procedures, sometimes as many as 10 or 15. These procedures can cost around $500 each, making this a slightly more expensive option than liposuction.

Mesotherapy generally requires no preparation or recovery and the procedure lasts around 30 minutes. The most common side effect is bruising, which will usually fade within 1 week. Most patients find that the procedure is relatively painless. For those who have a lower threshold for pain, topical anesthetics can be used to ease discomfort.

Though mesotherapy's popularity is growing, there is still much skepticism surrounding the procedure. It has only recently been accepted in the U.S., and it is still banned in places like Brazil, a country that is far less strict about drug policies.

Can Mesotherapy eliminate cushions of fat?

Mesotherapy does not usually have any effect on cushions of fat. This type of treatment is none other than a way to convey thropic-effect medicines to fatty. It may also have some effect on lipodstrophy, but the therapy has to be followed with perseverance - it is never definitive. Generally, it is not recommended. For some reason, Mesotherapy changes the texture of the fat deposits making its removal through Liposuction a much harder task.Visit the Related Links below this answer for more info
