Changing You From the Inside Out
Shrink fat! Break down cellulite! Rejuvenate your skin!
Mesotherapy is a revolutionary way to treat cellulite and fat as well as rejuvenate skin, especially of the face and neck. You can get dramatic results – all without surgery or long recuperations. Using a series of micro-injections of a blend of conventional and homeopathic medications, Dr. Mudd targets those specific problem areas that you want to change. Each client is treated with an individually customized formula that is specific to their needs, body type, and metabolism.
Mesotherapy is used in three different ways:
- Mesotherapy for Fat Sculpting
- Mesotherapy for Cellulite
- Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation
Mesotherapy for Fat Sculpting– Shrinking Fat.
You can remove unwanted pockets of body fat and return your body to its natural shape and contours. Many of those who have had liposuction in the past are turning to mesotherapy to smooth unevenness from surgery and subsequent weight gain.
Mesotherapy for Cellulite—Breaking down cellulite for good.
Cellulite is that superficial dimpling and lumpiness (cottage cheese appearance) especially in the legs and buttocks, that even thin people can experience. Unfortunately, dieting and exercise won’t affect these areas, and liposuction is also ineffective (it only removes deeper body fat). Mesotherapy can address the underlying causes –impaired microcirculation, non-elastic connective tissue, water retention, and swollen fat cells– that cause cellulite formation. We have the most successful combined cellulite treatment program available today.
Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation– Turn the clock back on your face…right now!
Rejuvenation Mesotherapy fights the effects of aging by tightening and firming loose skin, as well as restoring the natural glow and radiance to skin that is associated with an earlier time in life. Rejuvenation mesotherapy for skin can be used anywhere to improve the body’s skin, but is especially used in the face, neck, decollete, hands, arms, abdomen, and thighs. Rejuvenation mesotherapy restores natural skin nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and anti-oxidants that your body loses as it matures. By “feeding” your skin, you give it the ingredients to generate new skin cells, both surface cells and collagen. Dull looking and sagging skin can now have its appearance reversed. Most patients notice immediate improvement in the skin’s surface appearance, before they even leave the office, and then will notice continued improvement in the skin as the skin cells naturally regenerate. The nutrients used in rejuvenation mesotherapy are critical for collagen formation, which is important since collagen is the foundational layer of skin. Collagen synthesis takes 2-6 months and the effects unfold naturally. Rejuvenation mesotherapy is a great adjunct to other therapies like Ultherapy™, Botox®, MicroLaserPeel™ and fractional laser because it gives your skin more resources to respond to these therapies.
What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is the localized microinjection of medications placed at the site of the desired change. Pioneered in France by Dr. Michel Pistor in the 1950’s, it was only available in Europe and parts of South America, until introduced in the United States by Dr. Lionel Bissoon in the late 1990′s. In 2004, Dr. Mudd was the first doctor in Ohio to be trained by Dr. Bissoon, and is now recognized as a leading mesotherapy expert in the Midwest.
How safe is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is extremely safe. It has an over 50 year worldwide track record of safety, and like all healthy fields of medicine, it continues to improve over time. All the medications are either approved by the FDA (although used in an off-label fashion which is not unusual, since physicians effectively use many medications in this manner to treat medical problems) or are homeopathic medications created by reputable compounding pharmacies (by federal law, the FDA is forbidden to regulate homeopathic medications, which include many naturally occurring plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, and other pharmaceuticals).
How does mesotherapy work for fat sculpting?
Very small amounts of medication are applied in a series of microinjections directly placed into the areas to be treated. Our mesotherapy treatment uses a tiny needle about the width of a human eyelash to help with comfort, while still getting a high level of results. Each mesotherapy treatment regimen is tailored to the individual needs, body type, and metabolism of the client.
What will mesotherapy treat?
- Dimple buns
- Cottage cheese thighs
- Saddle bags
- Bulging stomachs
- Body fat
- Sagging jaw lines
- Double chins
- Eye fat pads
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines or “parenthesis” around the nose)
- Rejuvenates skin of the face, neck, decollete, hands, arms, abdomen, and thighs
When will I see results?
Mesotherapy for Fat Sculpting and Cellulite – patients usually begin to see results in as few as 4-5 sessions, depending on body type, metabolism, and a program of good nutrition and exercise. The total number of treatments is more a function of body type, the area treated, and the results desired. Quite honestly, some pockets of fat are more resistant. You may require 10 or more treatments depending on your goals. Most patients require an average of 10-12 treatments for cellulite, while the worst cases may require 10-15 treatment sessions. Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation – patients frequently will see results prior to even leaving the office with additional beneficial results usually within 2-4 sessions, depending on the age and the condition of your skin, with total results unfolding over 3-4 months.
How long do the treatments take?
Mesotherapy for Fat Sculpting and Cellulite – treatment sessions usually take about 20 minutes. These treatments are given no more often than once weekly until the desired effects are achieved. Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation – most patients request topical anesthesia which will take 30-40 minutes to become effective. The actual treatment usually takes about 30 minutes. Patients are recommended to have a single follow-up maintenance treatment every 6 months after they complete the initial series of 2-4 treatments.
What are the side effects?
Minimal bruising can occur, but this is minimized through the use of microinjection techniques. If it does occur it only lasts a few days. Other possible side effects may include mild swelling, sensation of warmth, or temporary soreness. Some of the enzymes used in cellulite mesotherapy can rarely cause a rash, although the patient is tested for this prior to initiation of treatment.
What is the difference between mesotherapy for fat sculpting and liposuction?
Liposuction forcefully removes fat by suctioning it from body areas using a large tube-like device called a cannula. It is a surgically invasive procedure that will require significant anesthesia. Large doses of pain medication are generally needed during recuperation. Post-liposuction patients wear special post-operative binding garments for a month and are unable to perform usual activities for a few weeks. Liposuction cannot successfully treat cellulite or more superficial fat.
What is the difference between fat sculpting mesotherapy and LaserLipo?
LaserLipo is used to permanently remove fat from a localized area such as the abdomen, saddle bags, inner thighs, knees, back, upper arms, and neck. It gently destroys fat cells by melting them with a laser fiber the size of angel hair pasta, and then the fat is aspirated. LaserLipo can also tighten skin. It is done in a single session using local anesthesia in the office. These patients have minimal downtime and return quickly to their regular activities, but do wear a special compression garment for one month after the procedure. Fat sculpting mesotherapy requires multiple sessions and generally will not remove as much fat as LaserLipo. It also does not tighten skin, and most patients find is more uncomfortable than a single session of LaserLipo. However there are some situations where mesotherapy will provide a better result, such as mixed fat deposition with cellulite or extensive fat deposition over the thighs rather than just localized saddle bag fat. Since Dr. Mudd is expert in both procedures, she can often help the patient decide which treatment would provide the most benefit and best results.
