What is Mesotherapy?
Pioneered by the French physician, Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, mesotherapy is a non-surgical, relatively painless injection technique with a broad range of applications. Mesotherapy promotes the body's circulatory, lymphatic, and immune system to create a biological response and reverse abnormal physiology. Mesotherapy is also practiced in many other countries around the world, including Germany, Spain, Belgium, Brazil, Columbia, Argentina, and throughout Europe. Lebanon will be the 20th country to have its Mesotherapy Society.
Indications of Mesotherapy:
Fat Loss: for those patients seeking fat loss, mesotherapy is a revolutionary and essential tool. It works by blocking the signals of fat accumulation and simultaneously triggering the release of stored fat modifies the biology of the fat cell. Again, the desired area of treatment can be patient specific, targeting your most problematic areas. Additionally, a complete dietary and nutrient evaluation will help you maintain your weight loss goals.
Cellulite Reduction: cellulite affects the majority of women over the age of 20. It is caused by poor circulation, fat herniation, a weakening of connective tissues, lymphatic congestion and hormonal imbalances. Causing a dimpling and cottage cheese appearance of the skin, cellulite is not a disease of excess weight. Mesotherapy treatment is targeted to correct these problems by improving circulation, strengthening connective tissues, and dissolving excess fat.
Hair loss/Alopecia: the loss of hair, affects both men and women. Alopecia results from poor circulation, nutritional imbalances, and the excess of a hormone known as DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Mesotherapy can correct these problems, stimulating the body to naturally grow lost hair.
Face and Neck Rejuvenation with Mesolift: aging, sagging and wrinkling of the skin occurs from accumulation of fat, loss of skin elasticity and excessive free radical damage. Using antioxidants and amino acids, mesotherapy can remove fat from under the neck, remove free radical damage, and tighten loose skin. The effects rejuvenate the face, eyelids, and neck without the unnatural appearance and painful recovery of surgical face lifting.
Body Sculpting: contouring of the abdomen, arms, back, legs and hands can be obtained with mesotherapy. Vitamins and amino acids are used to tighten sagging skin while other agents are used to remove areas of fat, restoring a more youthful and athletic appearance to the body's contours.
Medical uses: Mesotherapy also has a variety of medicinal uses. Treatments can benefit those patients suffering from muscle spasms, stress, insomnia, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, infections, RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy), and osteoarthritis, among other conditions.

Is mesotherapy different from liposuction?
Yes, it is very different. Besides involving no anesthesia and surgical risk, mesotherapy requires no recovery time. Mesotherapy also removes the fat from the fat cell without destroying it. We believe this helps give mesotherapy its natural appearance. Also, if you gain weight after having mesotherapy, the fat will simply return to the treated area, unlike liposuction, where fat can start to occur in places that had been thin in the past, such as the arms, neck, face and calves.
