Mesotherapy Ft Lauderdale | Forever Young Medspa
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is used all over the world to treat various medical conditions and injuries. It was created by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952. Mesotherapy targets problem areas with microinjections of homeopathic or conventional medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Tiny “medicinal bullets” are delivered directly into themiddle layer of skin (mesoderm) that are highly specific to the condition being treated. Mesotherapy is a procedure used for body sculpting to reduce, eliminate and contour specific undesired fat pockets. This method targets the receptors on fat cells that produce lipogenesis (fat production) and lipolysis (fat breakdown).
In both men and women, the ratio of alpha to beta receptors is generally 1:1 above the waist. Below the waist, women have approximately 6 to 8 alpha receptors for every single beta receptor. This is the main reason women have trouble losing fat in their abdomens, buttocks and thighs; their bodies are designed to retain fat in those areas.
A medical history and physical examination is required prior to receiving treatment for weight loss and body sculpting. Based on individual requirements, we will select a formula consisting of several medications that block alpha receptors and stimulate the beta receptors. Once injected into the skin, the formula slowly diffuses into the fat, and breaks it down. The number of weight loss and body sculpting treatments required varies from person to person however averages about 3 sessions.
