Your figure says a lot about you. Diet and exercise can help many areas of the body, but there are always some areas that just don’t seem to respond. Those fatty deposits in the cheeks, chin, jaw line, “love handles”, hips, under the arms and abdomen are the most difficult to remove. Now, Mesotherapy at Royal Laser Med Spa can sculpt, refine, melt away your problem areas. Non surgical and non-invasive!!!
Mesotherapy is a medical treatment for spot fat reduction and cellulite treatment. After being used in France for over 50 years, doctors in the United States and Canada are now providing this procedure, which may help you get rid of fat and cellulite without undergoing surgery or liposuction.
Although not considered a weight loss procedure, Mesotherapy may be an alternative to liposuction since it is a non-surgical technique for spot weight reduction, sagging chins and eyelids, and for eliminating cellulite from heavy thighs, abdomen, hips and buttocks.

• WHAT IS MESOTHERAPY?
Mesotherapy has been used in Europe since 1952 when it was developed by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor for pain management. It is the injection of a mixture of FDA approved medications, vitamins and minerals into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue just under your skin. This mixture will differ depending on the condition and area being treated. Mesotherapy has a number of medical applications that include weight loss, spot body contouring, face and neck rejuvenation and cellulite reduction..
• HOW DOES MESOTHERAPY WORK?
The mixture of medications used in Mesotherapy melts the fat beneath the skin and shrinks the deeper fat cells. Once the fat has been dissolved, it is absorbed into the bloodstream where it is carried away and removed from the body through the kidneys. The formula of medications is used to treat cellulite, destroy the connective tissues that cause the dimpling effect and dissolve fat cells that are trapped. This results in a smooth, dimple-free appearance.
• WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN MESOTHERAPY INJECTIONS?
The mesotherapy injection is a solution of various vitamins, minerals, enzymes, plant extracts, amino acids, anesthetics, and medications. The makeup of the solution varies depending on the needs of the patient and the desired effect while allowing for a greater level of safety when issues such as drug interactions and allergies exist.
• ARE THE TREATMENTS PAINFUL?
The majority of patients experience minimal discomfort. For those who have discomfort, a topical anesthetic cream can be utilized 45 minutes prior to the procedure. Ice can also be applied prior to or after the procedure if necessary.
• HOW LONG DO THE TREATMENTS LAST?
Patients can maintain their results as long as they stay on a healthy diet and continue to exercise. Cellulite may require maintenance treatments every three to six months.
• THE PROCEDURE
Mesotherapy can actually melt away unwanted localized deposits of fat cells. During the procedure your doctor uses a very tiny needle (about the size of an eyelash) to painlessly make multiple injections into the targeted area. For overall weight loss your doctor may inject larger areas. When treating cellulite, one formulation of medications may be used to dissolve the fat and another to destroy the fibrous bands that bind the skin. Treatments vary from three to ten sessions, one to four weeks apart.
• HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
That depends on the area being treated. 6-10 treatments are recommended. Some patients see results after two or three treatments, while others require ten treatments before they are satisfied. Fat loss with Mesotherapy is a gradual process. The results are not immediate, as with liposuction.
• WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
It must not be forgotten that the effect of most procedures, although long-lasting, may fade with time. The results for each individual may vary. It is recommended to schedule a maintenance treatment every 3 months. For localized fat removal to be permanent requires the patient to maintain their weight. A regular exercise regime, including cardio and resistance training and the implementation of a healthy diet, that places emphasis on lean protein and low G.I carbohydrates, will assist patients in maintaining results.
• WHAT ABOUT SIDE EFFECTS?
Side effects are limited because Mesotherapy is delivered directly to the target area. This reduces the possibility of drug interactions, and reduces the amount of medication required for each procedure. Localized bruising is common. We suggest you discontinue blood thinners before your treatment.
• HOW LONG IS THE “DOWN TIME” AND RECOVERY TIME?
There is no down time or recovery time for this procedure. The patient will be back to regular activities immediately.
• IS MESOTHERAPY SIMILAR TO LIPOSUCTION?
With Mesotherapy, the fat is dissolved and removed painlessly from the body. Mesotherapy is performed in a series of sessions with no downtime. After Mesotherapy, the results can be measured in inches, as about one pound per week can be melted away. Many patients can lose as much as two dress sizes after only ten treatments. Patients say the treatment is like a pinch or a bee sting. Some prefer to use a local anesthetic cream applied thirty minutes prior to their treatment. Mesotherapy is a non-invasive alternative supported by a 1994-95 study on "topical fat reduction" by UCLA researchers. This study concluded women who had Mesotherapy injections lost weight even without diet or exercise. About 100 people a year die because of liposuction, Mesotherapy has no deaths, stokes or heart attacks.
• WHO IS SUITABLE FOR MESOTHERAPY?
SMost healthy adults 18 to 80 may have Mesotherapy for body sculpting, cellulite treatment, skin rejuvenation and alopecia. The exclusion criteria as a guide follows but each patient must be assessed individually to determine whether the exclusion criteria apply for the treatment they seek.
