Why Have Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure where tiny injections of vitamins, enzymes and hormones are used to rejuvenate the skin and produce a beautiful, youthful appearance.
Mesotherapy can be fantastically effective against cellulite, stretch marks, weight loss, scar improvement among others. It can also be used for spot fat reduction, particularly around the lower face and neck.
Although popular in Europe for decades, it has only recently begun to spread to America. Dr. Salas is perhaps the foremost Mesotherapy expert in America. He was the first president of the American Board of Aesthetic Mesotherapy, and pioneered this procedure. He is passionate about the potential of this technique and loves how well it works for patients.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a discipline that was developed by Michel Pistor in 1952. It involves painless micro injections into the 'mesoderm' - the middle layer of the skin, achieving a desired therapeutic result. Results depend on the formula being injected into the skin, but plumping and moisturising hyaluronic acid, and vitamins are often included.
Although Mesotherapy has been used extensively in Europe, it has only recently been introduced in the United States. Dr. Salas is a pioneer in Mesotherapy, and has served as the president of the US board of Mesotherapy. He is also responsible for the invention of a new injection technique and has delivered numerous presentations to fellow surgeons on Mesotherapy.
Uses of Mesotherapy include fat and cellulite reduction, control of pain conditions, hair re-growth, weight loss, wrinkle elimination, scar improvement, acne treatment, arthritis and joint problems, sports injuries, stretchmarks, among others. Treatment with Mesotherapy for aesthetic/cosmetic improvement is referred to as Mesoplasty®.
How does Mesoplasty work?
The medications used in Mesoplasty® cause shrinkage of fat cells by dissolving fat. The fat is then excreted through the urine and bowels. Mesoplasty® can also improve the appearance of cellulite (fibrous bands that tent the skin). Cellulite is reduced by decreasing the size of the trapped fat cells. Mesoplasty® also enhances hair re-growth by improving circulation of the scalp and providing needed nutrition to hair follicles. The effect of Mesoplasty® can be enhanced by eliminating toxins from the diet and maintaining a healthy program of exercise.
How is Mesoplasty administered?
A special combination of medications is administered via a specially designed applicator which delivers the medicine painlessly into the skin. The delivery system used a very fine needle that moves at a high rate of speed leading to painless treatment. The procedure involved a series of these painless injections into the area to be treated. Generally 3-5 treatments are required to achieve the desired result
Candidates for Mesoplasty
Any healthy individual with an interest in fat/cellulite reduction, hair re-growth, or wrinkle reduction is a candidate for Mesoplasty®. Any individual with significant medical problems should consult with their family physician to determine if they are a candidate for Mesoplasty®. Individuals who are on blood thinners, pregnant, or have other severe medical problems are not good candidates for Mesoplasty®
Preparation & Recovery
Since this is not a surgical procedure little preparation and recovery is needed. It is best to avoid any blood thinning medication the day of your appointment to prevent excessing bleeding and bruising.
After the procedure we will apply a cooling gel to the skin & give you an icepack to calm the area.
