Mesotherapy is a breakthrough medical treatment that gives patients a
non-invasive remedy for cellulite, unwanted fat, wrinkles and aging of the skin,
sagging skin, aged hands and excess skin or fat on the neck.
It involves micro-injections of vitamins, minerals, complimentary medicines and
advanced pharmaceutical preparations into the mesoderm or middle layer of the
The procedure was first developed about 50 years ago by Dr Michael Pistor in
France, and has been in common use in Europe since then.
Until recently, mesotherapy was considered a quirky, somewhat oddball treatment
in Australia and the United States. However, a gifted American doctor, Lionel
Bissoon, embarked on an exhaustive investigation of the treatment, and his work
has legitimised Mesotherapy and standardised many of the formulas used for fat
burning and body sculpting.
There are now hundreds of Mesotherapy specialists in the USA, many of them
trained by Dr Bissoon.
Bissoon's work has included clinical investigation of the effects of the main
compounds used in Mesotherapy, and comparative trials of different Mesotherapy
techniques to achieve optimum results for patients.
Mesotherapy's microinjections act as a 'medicinal bullet', delivered directly to
its target in your body.
Mesotherapy treatments fall into two categories, those that enhance, tone and
nourish the skin, and those that stimulate the body to burn fat or dissolve
The first type of treatment works by providing a patient's skin with various
vitamins and minerals, and with stimulants that trigger the production of
collagen, elastin and other essentials.
The second type of treatment works at a cellular level on the body's fat cells.
Those fat cells have two receptors on them, an alpha receptor through which the
fat cell receives its fat for storage, and a beta receptor, through which the
fat cell excretes fat when the body need additional fuel for burning.
The problem is that in different parts of your body, our fat cells have an
imbalance of alpha and beta receptors. Typically, in women, the lower down their
torso you go, the higher the ratio of alphas to betas... that is, there are more
receptors for storing fat, and less receptors for getting rid of it.
Mesotherapy acts by stimulating the beta receptors to excrete the fat, and by
blocking the alpha receptors so that fat can't go back into the cell.
The body then uses up the fatty acids that are excreted by the fat cells in its
normal day to day function.
Mesotherapy. You will be amazed by the results.
