Q&A: Mesotherapy

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a relatively non-invasive, painless, and safe superficial French injection technique for medical and cosmetic concerns. Mesotherapy is globally recognized as the non-surgical spot fat reduction technique.

Mesotherapy is utilized for cosmetic purposes in stimulating hair growth in hair loss, for dissolving scars and cellulite, for spot fat removal and reduction, and for weight loss, skin rejuvenation, and photo-aging. Mesotherapy is also used to correct deformity complications, such as ridging and irregularity of fat deposits after surgical liposuction.

Natural substances such as homeopathic medicines, herbs, and nutrients are injected into the mesoderm (only 3-6 mm under the skin) for the treatment of medical conditions such as chronic and acute pain, tendonitis, arthritis, eczema, tinnitus, and asthma.

Brief History of Mesotherapy

In 1952, Dr. Pistor of France discovered Mesotherapy as he was treating asthma and tinnitus with superficial injections of procaine (local anesthesia). Later, he discovered the cosmetic benefits of such injections.

In 1987, the French National Academy of Medicine acknowledged Mesotherapy as an official specialty of medicine. From France, Mesotherapy’s popular benefits and results spread across Europe, and more recently, to the United States.

Dr. Darvish is one of a handful of physicians who have been trained directly by Dr. Jacques Le Coz, the first student of Dr. Pistor, and by Dr. Roman Chubaty, the leading authority of Mesotherapy in the United States.

How is Mesotherapy performed?

Mesotherapy uses a series of gentle yet swift and painless injections using a tiny needle (the thickness and length of an eyelash) into the mesoderm (the fatty layer and connective tissue area under the skin). The injections are usually multiple and painless. The area of concern being treated may require a series of injections every 2 weeks to achieve optimal results.

Mesotherapy for cellulite and spot fat reduction stimulates the fats to burn. Fat cells are reduced in number and their by-products are reabsorbed by the body into the blood and eliminated through the kidneys and bowels.

Mesotherapy performed for cosmetic reasons such as facial rejuvenation, elimination of wrinkles and mesoglow, show immediate results. For cellulite reduction, 2-6 treatments may be necessary for optimal results. For fat reduction and weight loss, approximately 1 pound of fat (for example, a pound of butter) is lost per week and treatment continues until desirable results are reached.
