Will the fat reduction last?
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle (eating a healthy diet and exercising) the fat reduction will last. If you eat too many high glycemic carbohydrates the fat cells can enlarge once again. After finishing a treatment course of 5-10 mesotherapy treatments most patients find that they may need an additional treatment about once a year to maintain the desired effect.
Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with mesotherapy, but it is recommended that you do not actively exercise for 48 hours after a treatment so that the medications may have an optimal effect on the treated area.
Are there any side effects?
One of the side effects with mesotherapy may be some local bruising at the site of injection. The bruising usually only lasts a few days and improves with time. Some patients may experience a local reaction of redness at the site of injection. This can be avoided by performing a skin test of certain medications to ensure the patient will not have an allergic response. If the skin test is reactive, alternative medications will be used. Some patients may feel a little jittery (like from one cup of coffee too many) for about an hour after the treatment. Other side effects may include temporary itching and soreness lasting a few days. It is important to understand that if you gain weight after mesotherapy, you can develop cellulite/rippling even if you never had it before.
