Mesolipo is a cosmetic procedure involving the injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to remove excess fat, rejuvenate, and tighten skin.
According to THEA’s experts, mesolipo was first developed in 1952, most commonly used in the U.S. After that, this procedure slowly gained popularity in many countries, including Vietnam.
Mesolipo is recommended for:
- Removal of excess fat in certain areas such as the thighs, chin, buttocks, hips, arms, and face, etc.
- Fading wrinkles
- Tighten loose skin
- Brighten skin tone
- Treating hair loss
An aesthetician will use fine needles to make several injections in the middle layer (mesoderm) of the skin. This procedure also improves underlying issues such as poor blood circulation or inflammation and skin damage.
There’s no standard formula or dosage for mesolipo. Usually, your doctor will take into your overall health and the amount of excess fat you have into consideration and give you appropriate recommendations. These include:
- Injection of prescription drugs
- Injection of skin tightening and rejuvenating enzymes
- Injection of herbal extracts
- Injection of vitamins and minerals
How to prepare for mesolipo?
To prepare, you should visit a doctor specialized in mesolipo to learn more about the procedure and know what to expect from it.
A week prior to treatment, you should avoid aspirin and other NSAIDs as they may increase your risk of bleeding and bruising.
What happens during mesolipo?
You may not need local anesthesia for every treatment session. Your doctor will use a special short needle to administer a series of injections into the area with excess fat.
The depths of these injections may differ, ranging from 1mm to 4mm, depending on your skin condition. Your doctor may place the needle at an angle and make it so quick that you almost don’t feel anything much at all. Only a tiny amount of solution is administered into your skin with every injection.
You need from 7 to 10 mesolipo sessions to get desired results. Depending on how your skin reacts, your doctor will schedule a follow-up visit. You’ll get 3-15 of those. If your excess fat and skin condition start to show improvements, you’ll scale back to one session every 2 weeks or every month until your treatment is complete.
How mesolipo works
It’s rather hard to say how mesolipo works because there are too many factors involved in each session. Many people notice overwhelming results immediately after getting injections while some only experience fairly small differences.
Mesoliso is an alternative to cosmetic surgery for fat removal (liposuction). Dr. … explains: During liposuction, a surgeon makes several small incisions through which a thin plastic tube will be inserted. Excess fat will be sucked out with a surgical vacuum. The whole procedure is carried out under anesthesia.
Although liposuction may provide immediate, permanent results, recovery often takes quite a long time. Moreover, it comes with various complications such as blood vessel damage, burns, or infection. That’s not to mention the procedure may cost an arm and a leg.
As a result, mesolipo is considered the perfect alternative for people who want to get rid of excess fat.
Possible risks of mesolipo
Clients who have used mesolipo at THEA agree that the risks are minimal if you can find a reputable clinic and a highly experienced doctor.
However, certain side effects such as nausea, pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site, sensitivity to light, itchiness, scarring or infection are to be expected.
Since mesolipo is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure, you won’t have to put your work, study, or other activities on hold. However, if you experience any side effects, it’s best to take a day off.
Because there’s no standard formula for mesolipo, you may get conflicting information from different doctors. This means you should shop for a well-known, certified aesthetic clinic and a doctor with extensive expertise in mesolipo to minimize your risk of side effects and get the best results possible.
