Mesotherapy is the injection of a mixture of different medications, vitamins, and/or enzymes. Mesotherapy is used to dissolve a layer of fat and connective tissue under your skin that cause cellulite thereby decreasing the dimpling effect. Dr. Hanan Marafie and her team at Marafie Clinic recommends that you may need up to 10 sessions spaced about 1-2 weeks apart.
How does it work?
The medicines that are used in cosmetic mesotherapy melt the fat beneath the skin and shrink the fat cells in the scarpus fascia layer. The fat dissolves, and, as occurs when fat is broken down during the typical weight loss, is carried in liquid form through the bloodstream and excreted by the kidneys and bowel. Cellulite is caused by the connective tissue bands that hold down the skin, trapping fat and thereby causing the “dimpling” effect. The medications used in Mesotherapy destroy the connective tissue bands and melt the fat, creating a smooth, dimplefree appearance.
Why don’t diet and exercise make a difference with cellulite?
Hormonal changes in females cause cellulite to occur by causing fibrous connective tissue bands to reach up through the mesoderm and attach themselves to the skin. This causes dimpling of the skin, commonly referred to as “orange peel” skin. Fat gets trapped beneath the skin, causing a lumpy appearance. Although diet can help reduce the amount of fat, neither diet nor exercise can break the connective tissue bands that form under the skin.
If diet and exercise don’t make a difference with cellulite, how can mesotherapy help?
Mesotherapy is a permanent solution that eliminates dimpling and misshapen fat under the skin. Cellulite is an accumulation of fat, fluid and toxins trapped in a hardened network of connective tissue fibers in the mesoderm layer. The fat cells inflate, causing a rippling and puckering of the skin. Lymphatic and venous circulation is poor in these areas. Mesotherapy targets those areas by breaking the connective tissue bands and melting the fat under the skin
