Mesotherapy is considered a "minimally invasive" medical treatment used to treat cellulite and eliminate its unmistakable orange peel appearance. The procedure is carried out by a doctor who will customize a specific formula for each patient after a thorough consultation. Each formula is made up of different injectable medications that are effective in blocking fat storage and promoting the fat to breakdown. Mesotherapy also promotes the restructuring of the collagen that has been degraded during the cellulite progression leading to healthier, firmer, smoother skin.

As with most medical procedures, there are a few side effects. The injections can create a burning sensation that lasts for about 15 minutes. The treatment may leave you with some bruising and soreness for a few days. The sessions are given weekly or bi-weekly and are approximately 45 minutes long with no downtime.
