Diet and exercise resistant areas of fat are often troubling and can affect body image. These trouble spots often plague individuals who lead active lifestyles, have proper dietary habits, and maintain a normal weight. For these individuals, non-surgical localized fat reduction by mesotherapy may be an option.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is an in-office procedure that involves multiple injections of medication into problem areas, resulting in a more refined and balanced contour. The treatment targets fat cells.
Mesotherapy is nonsurgical, requiring no sedation or anesthesia, however ice and numbing cream might be applied to the skin for your comfort. During treatment with mesotherapy, fine needles are used to deliver a medical injection into the skin. Several sessions are needed for optimal results.
There is some downtime involved after mesotherapy and patients may return to their activities on the following day. You might experience some skin sensitivity, redness, itching, or swelling, but these are all temporary as your skin heals. Mesotherapy can result in a smoother, more contoured body with reduction of fat cells.
Mesotherapy is not for everyone. In East Lansing, evaluation by Dr. Colony will determine whether this procedure is right for you. Contact our office for more information or to schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and concerns.
