Individuals are normally led to think that Mesotherapy or Lipodissolve is a fat melting process and can keep away from the want for liposuction and physique contouring surgery. Given that quite a few of our sufferers ask us about this technologies and have quite a few inquiries, we believed it was vital to address the subject with some details and investigation.

Mesotherapy or Lipodissolve is traditionally performed in the US in Cosmetic spas and hardly ever by a doctor in spite of the truth that pretty substantial drugs are injected into the skin in the course of the process. The U.S. Meals and Drug Administration have not authorized the subcutaneous (under the skin) injection of drugs typically utilised in Mesotherapy or Lipodissolve.
There are several cocktails of drugs utilised in Mesotherapy or Lipodissolve which includes: phosphatidylcholine, isopterenol, aminophylline, caffeine, L-carnitine, buflomedil, calcitonin, and other individuals.

A resolution of aminophylline, lidocaine and buflomedil was utilised in the patient’s thigh region.
The benefits showed no statistical proof of loss of fat or enhanced physique contour in the thigh region of these females. In truth, some females had bigger thighs immediately after the study.
