Category Archives: MESOTHERAPYMesotherapy is an exciting and effective process that enzymatically shrinks fat and cellulite through a series of injections by one of our NYC plastic surgeons. It is minimally invasive, affordable and safe. It has actually been very popular in Europe for years.
The procedure takes around 10 minutes and involves tiny injections into the mesoderm (fat layer under the skin) layer where excess fat, dimpling or cellulite is troubling the patient. Mesotherapy starts to work instantly and often provides visible improvement within days.
Most areas that contain unwanted fat can be treated, including the abdomen, love handles, arms, legs, buttocks, chin, neck, and jowls. A series of three short, 3-5 minute sessions produce the desired results when it comes to fat loss and smoothing skin. We administer the treatments every couple of weeks, and many patients report that they have lost anywhere from two to three inches off of their abdomen, hips, and thighs because of the treatment.
There have been no reports of adverse side effects aside from temporary itching at the injection site and bruising that if it occurs, fades within a couple weeks.
The cost of this procedure is very reasonable since it is non-surgical and allows patients to return to their normal routine immediately. And while it isn’t a substitute for Smartlipo or liposuction in NYC, there have been cases where we have seen great results after a single treatment.
