Modern cosmetology offers patients many methods of rapid weight loss. Unfortunately, not all of them are quite effective. Let’s talk about how appropriate mesotherapy for weight loss, because it is often recommended by professional doctors to patients. Perhaps this article will help you understand the principle of injection plastic surgery, and decide how relevant the technique is for you.
First you need to determine how mesotherapy is carried out with the aim of losing weight. For this procedure, it is customary to use special preparations based on lipolytics, components that contribute to the breakdown. In addition to stimulating the breakdown of fat cells, mesococktails intended for weight loss contribute to their accelerated elimination, the establishment of metabolic processes, and the strengthening of the skin. Such properties help not only to get rid of excess volumes, but also to prevent possible soft tissue ptosis.
The drugs are injected directly into the problem area (most often this is the abdomen, buttocks and thighs) to a maximum depth of up to 6 millimeters. The pronounced effect does not occur immediately, beneficial substances accumulate and only after the 4-5 sessions expose noticeable results.
How effective is mesotherapy for weight loss? The technique is equally characterized not only by positive, but also by negative reviews. So, some patients note a mild result or its complete absence. As a rule, this is due to mismatch of expectations and reality, improperly selected means or overly complex problems that cannot be eliminated without surgery. It should be immediately noted that mesotherapy for weight loss can be carried out not only as an independent procedure, but also as an integral part of complex therapy.
If you want to make an easy correction of volumes and shapes, then the first option is right for you. To achieve significant results, it is recommended to pay attention to procedures such as lipolysis or various types of liposuction. Why is the effectiveness of mesotherapy significantly lower than these procedures? The thing is, medicinal formulations:
- have a low concentration;
- are not introduced deep enough (that is, they may not always have an effect on body fat located much deeper than 6 millimeters).
Indications for the procedure
Based on the above information, it can be concluded about in which cases mesotherapy for weight loss can be prescribed. As a rule, cosmetologists recommend such a procedure mainly to women with moderate fat layer, distributed evenly under the skin. That is, the direct indication for such an effect is the minimum number of fat cells, in the absence of excess weight. In addition to solving this problem, the procedure allows you to eliminate:
- sagging skin caused by fluctuations in weight and a decrease in elasticity;
- stretch marks;
- sagging skin.
After mesotherapy, puffiness, increased soreness, redness of the skin and bruising are quite often observed. Since the procedure involves the treatment of a significant surface of the body, the magnitude of the consequences can be quite large. Try not to be upset about the side effects, but take the necessary first aid measures. First, apply a sterile cool compress that will relieve pain and swelling, then treat the skin with a healing ointment.
When signs of an inflammatory process appear, it is recommended to immediately take antiseptics. It is best to use for this purpose a gentle product like Miramistin, peroxide can injure already irritated skin. If side effects cause you significant concern, you should consult a specialist for further advice. Do not be afraid to be vigilant, the neglected effects of mesotherapy can provoke quite serious health problems. In extremely rare cases, the procedure may result in skin necrosis or Quincke’s edema.
How to consolidate and strengthen the result?
Now that you know how relevant mesotherapy for weight loss, you need to find out how to achieve consolidation and strengthening of the results. For starters, you should pay attention to nutrition correction and moderate exercise. Please note that your exercises should not be too active. Do not overload the body, in combination with regular injections, this can lead to a weakening of the immune system.
Any additional effects, the purpose of which is to reduce body fat, should be agreed with a specialist. In any case, procedures of this nature (for example, massages) should not be performed on the first day after the injection. Restrictions can help fix the result, such as:
- rejection of bad habits;
- limitation of exposure to ultraviolet rays (it is not recommended to sunbathe and visit a solarium);
- limitation of exposure to high temperatures (do not visit steam rooms and saunas).
In some cases, such mesotherapy is contraindicated. This is due not only to the lack of a potential result (for example, with excess weight), but also to the possibility of developing complications. So, a contraindication to the procedure may be:
- lactation period;
- allergy to the components of the mesococktail;
- hypersensitivity to the skin, a tendency to form scars and scars;
- diseases of the circulatory system;
- viral diseases;
- exacerbation of chronic ailments.

Mesotherapy for weight loss at home
The price for a course of mesotherapy for the correction of body volumes is quite significant. If visiting a cosmetologist is difficult for you from a financial point of view, the way out can be found in the procedures carried out at home. Of course, mesotherapy, conducted on its own, is significantly different from salon manipulations, but under certain conditions it can help to achieve the desired goal.
To carry out the home procedure, it is necessary to purchase a cream based on lipolytics and a special mesoscooter device (also called dermoroller). The device is a handle with a nozzle on which microscopic thin needles are located. When massaging the problem area, the mesoscooter automatically makes punctures to a depth of one millimeter, which allows the pre-applied composition to penetrate into the surface layers of the dermis in almost full volume.
How exactly should mesotherapy be carried out at home? To begin with, the problem area is treated with an antiseptic to prevent possible inflammatory processes. Then, a lipolytic composition is applied to the skin, and only then a mesoscooter is treated. The composition penetrates into microranes by almost 90 percent, which significantly increases the effectiveness of its use.
Choosing a mesoscooter for independent use, do not strive to purchase a sophisticated model, it will be simple enough. Firstly, this option is cheaper, secondly, it is easier to operate, and thirdly, such a device will not be able to harm health. Professional devices injure the skin to a depth of more than one millimeter; it is unsafe to use such devices on their own.
Mesotherapy based on drugs with lipolytics promotes local correction of body volumes and the elimination of evenly spaced body fat. The treatment is carried out course, the principle of action of each procedure is to break down fat cells and remove them from the body, optimize internal metabolic processes and tighten the skin. The procedure leads to the formation of a temporary effect, therefore, requires periodic repetition.
