CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT WITH MESOTHERAPY?

Today we talk about losing weight and we talk about mesotherapy. This technique of aesthetic medicine is one of the most demanded its effectiveness. We want to help you better understand what mesotherapy consists of and if you can lose weight with Mesotherapy.

We answer the question

CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT WITH MESOTHERAPY?
Before entering into the relationship between Mesotherapy and weight loss, we are going to define both terms.

 

WHAT IS MESOTHERAPY?
The technique involves injecting small amounts of various medications into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. The theory is that when these small amounts of medication are injected into the mesoderm, the underlying fat melts away.

 

WHAT IS OBESITY?
Obesity is a chronic condition defined by an excessive amount of body fat. We must consider that a certain amount of body fat is necessary to store energy, thermal insulation, shock absorption, and other functions. In men, this amount should not exceed 25% and in women 30%.

Obesity is not just a cosmetic consideration. It is a chronic medical disease that can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, gallstones, and other chronic diseases.

We must consider that obesity is not easy to treat and has a high relapse rate. More than 95% of those who lose weight regain it after five years.

WHAT IS MESOTHERAPY FOR?
According to Dr. Shapiro, Director of Mesotherapy Associates PC in New York City, mesotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of cases, from obese people who need to reduce the volume in the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs, as well as those who, although they are thin, cannot reduce their accumulations of fat in very specific areas such as love handles and buttocks.

In a mesotherapy treatment, after the adipocyte is destroyed, the fat is expelled naturally. Unlike the non-invasive technique to treat cellulite, mesotherapy is permanent, as long as the patient does not regain the weight.

It does not work the same in all people, some patients report seeing results after the first treatment, but most report having reduced size or reduced a point on the belt after four treatments. To lose weight and/or reduce cellulite, the number of sessions is between 5 and 10; the number of injections in each session varies according to the areas, from 50 to 150.

Because the injections are given with a mesotherapy gun fitted with a very small gauge needle, patients generally feel no more sensation than an ant bite.

This treatment can be done for people between 18 and 70 years old who are in good health. People who are on blood thinner treatment, have blood clots or arrhythmia, are pregnant or are being treated for cancer, diabetes, or other significant medical problems are not good candidates for mesotherapy.

 

ARE THERE OTHER USES OF MESOTHERAPY?
Mesotherapy is applied mainly to reduce fat and cellulite, although its use is increasing for other conditions, such as hair loss, herpes, fibromyalgia, ankle sprains, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome.

The use of mesotherapy for other medical conditions makes sense because “the same drugs that would be taken orally, but in the injectable form are used,” with the difference that when the drugs are administered under the skin, the dose is 10 % to 20% of the normal oral dose.
