Mesotherapy is the use of injections directly into the mesoderm for localized fat reduction and treatment of cellulite. The mesoderm describes tissue such as fat, cartilage, muscle and bone. This therapy has been used for many years in Europe and South America, and is now becoming popular in the United States. The injections are well tolerated and have minimal side effects with no down time. Acceptable treatment areas include the chin, arms, abdomen, thighs, saddlebags, flanks and love handles. Typically, a high protein/low fat diet is recommended in conjunction with mesotherapy treatments for better results.
