With Mesotherapy, the fat cells themselves are not removed; rather, a series of injections are made in problem areas, which alter their structure through the use of medications, enzymes and amino acids. This process causes fat cells to break down and enter the blood stream where your body’s natural waste system then flushes them from your system. Patients may prefer this to other fat removal treatments because fat cells typically do not reappear in other areas and hospitalization and general anesthesia is not required. Topical anesthesia is administered to eliminate the slight discomfort associated with the injections which are performed over the course of several weeks. Additionally, there is minimal risk involved which is usually limited to minor swelling and/or bruising around the injection sites for a few days. There is also minimal recovery time and patients can return to work within a few hours.

Dr. Sobel may choose to apply a topical or injectable Mesotherapy presents a revolutionary treatment of cellulite and fat, acheiving dramatic results without the drawbacks of surgery. Using micro-injections of conventional and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins and nutrients, mesotherapy targets specific hard to reduce areas of the body. Each patient has their formula specially customized to address their specific needs and body type.
Mesotherapy eliminates fat with little recovery time:
Mesotherapy offers the advantages of traditional liposuction, such as the elimination of love handles and bulging stomachs, but does not require general anesthesia, surgery, unsightly bandages, medications or downtime. In most cases you can be ready to go back to your normal daily routine within hours of the procedure.
Mesotherapy sculpts the body:
Our non-surgical body-sculpting program offers the body a natural, aesthetically pleasing contour. Many patients who have had traditional liposuction have chosen Mesotherapy for touch-ups and follow ups due to its ability to correct asymmetry and unevenness which may have resulted from the surgery or from subsequent weight gain.
Mesotherapy Can Eliminate Cellulite:
Cellulite is a common skin condition with visible symptoms; even slender and fit people may have dimpling or lumpiness to areas including the legs or buttocks. Dieting and exercise are not effective as they do not address the causes of cellulite formation such as defective non-elastic connective tissue, local water retention and swollen fat cells.
Mesotherapy For Facial Skin Rejuvenation:
Mesotherapy may also be used in connection with a facial skin rejuvenation procedure which results in a glowing appearance and helps tighten skin that has suffered due to age and loss of elasticity. For best results, a physician uses microinjections of amino acids and vitamins into the mesoderm (middle layer of the skin), nourishing the skin from the inside, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, and improving blood flow. This firms and tightens the skin creating a radiant and youthful appearance.
What should I expect at each treatment?
For 2-3 days prior to each treatment, we suggest that you take homeopathic arnica tablets to help reduce swelling and bruising which may occur. Prior to administering the procedure, topical numbing cream is applied to ease the discomfort of the injections.
