What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy injections contain a natural substance, phosphatidylcholine, PCC found from soya beans and this same substance is also produced naturally by the body. This natural substance along with vitamin complexes is injected with tiny needles into the fatty layer to promote the body to dissolve the fat cells and promote skin contraction.
Typically, results are seen at two weeks following the injection and the treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks. Larger areas on the body require 2-4 treatments for optimal results. These injections take less than 30 minutes to perform. Moderate swelling and bruising are noted for 3-5 days, but will not limit normal activities.
This technique has been proven safe and effective in thousands of patients. Dr. Short has received her certification following thorough training sessions and she has had the lipolysis treatment herself. Physicians should complete a training course before injecting patients and many, like Dr. Short, have joined the Network-Globalhealth. This organization is designed to allow physicians around the world to share ideas and results as well as promote ongoing research to discover additional uses for this exciting technique. These advances may even include treatment of stretch marks.
