Mesotherapy is a medical specialty that involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins into the skin. It can be used to eliminate cellulite, promote weight loss, treat aging skin and redundant (sagging) skin, and rejuvenate the hands and neck.
Mesotherapy is also used to improve scarring and stretch marks; At Rippon Medical Services we combine mesotherpy with our PRP treatment.
What are the benefits of Mesotherapy over surgical techniques such as liposuction?
Liposuction does not treat cellulite. In fact, liposuction often causes existing cellulite to appear more prominent.
Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. Fat deposits are flushed from the body, and do not reappear in other areas, which often occurs after liposuction.
Mesotherapy does not require hospitalization, general anesthesia or downtime.
Your first visit with Dr Rippon will be a Mesotherapy consultation. After filling out a series of forms, the doctor will review your medical history and give you an in depth explanation as to what Mesotherapy is. He will address any of your concerns.
Patients typically sign up for advance Mesotherapy appointments in order to best accommodate their schedule. Most come once a week for Mesotherapy but on occasion a treatment may be skipped--this will not affect your progress.
