Mesotherapy (Meso Lipo)
A non-surgical alternative to liposuction, mesolipo is a safe and effective method of reducing localized fat deposits and cellulite. The most commonly treated areas include the abdomen, sides, upper arms and thighs. A series of multiple injections of small amounts of Phosphatidylcholine, more commonly known as lecithin, is initially done weekly. Inch loss, not weight loss (since fat does not weigh that much), is evident after each treatment session. Mesolipo may be done alone, or in combination with machine treatments with ultrasonic and radiofrequency waves to get rid of those unwanted inches and bulges. While liposuction still remains the gold standard for permanent removal of fat cells, mesolipo plays a significant role in taking inches off in localized areas of fat deposition for those in whom surgery is definitely not an option.
