Mesotherapy is an aesthetic treatment that helps to reduce problems in different parts of the body, such as cellulite, localized fat, premature aging of the skin and even hair loss. For this, the treatment uses small injections in the skin around the affected area with a mixture of medicines, vitamins, and minerals that vary according to the problem to treat.
Generally, the mesotherapy does not hurt because it is applied an anesthetic cream before the injections and, therefore, do not need any type of anesthesia, allowing for a return home shortly after the procedure, without the need for hospitalisation, as is the case in other aesthetic treatments.

How it works mesotherapy
Mesotherapy is made with the application of multiple injections, in the layers more superficial to the skin, with a mixture of medicines, vitamins, and minerals that vary according to the problem to treat. The number of sessions and the interval between each session varies according to the problem to be addressed and its degree of development.
So normally the treatment for the most common problems is done in the following way:
1. Stretch marks and cellulite
These cases are used in medicine, such as Hyaluronidase and Collagenase, which help destroy the bands of tissue basement membranes in the skin and between the fat cells, improving the appearance of the skin.
Duration of treatment: usually you will need 3 to 4 sessions of mesotherapy with intervals of about 1 month, to treat cases of cellulite moderate.
2. Localized fat
Mesotherapy is a great way to replace the intrusive treatments like liposuction, especially when the amount of fat is reduced and it is only necessary to improve the body contour. In these cases, it is done with the injection of drugs such as Phosphatidylcholine or Desoxicolato sodium, which make the membranes of fat more permeable, facilitating their mobilization and elimination.
Duration of treatment: usually it is necessary to do 2 to 4 sessions with intervals of 2 to 4 weeks.
3. The ageing of the skin

This mixture allows to exfoliate the skin and regulate the production of new skin cells and collagen, guaranteeing firmness and reduction of skin blemishes.
Duration of treatment: in the majority of cases of rejuvenation are needed only 4 sessions, with intervals between 2 to 3 weeks.

In addition, it may also be injected a multivitamin complex with hormones that will facilitates the growth of new hair and strengthens the hair remaining, avoiding the fall.
