If you’ve ever tried to get rid of unwanted cellulite, know you are not alone. Cellulite, also known as subcutaneous fat, can be extremely persistent and hard to work off with diet and exercise alone.
You may be more genetically prone to accumulating cellulite than others and may continue to have visible cellulite even if you have a healthy lifestyle.
When fat is stored in the body, it can change the texture of your skin. This may appear as uneven dimpling on the waist, thighs, buttocks, and hips. While having cellulite is completely normal, unwanted cellulite could make it difficult for you to feel comfortable in your skin.
If you would like to reduce or eliminate cellulite to improve the appearance of your skin, RKM Aesthetics and Wellness can provide the treatment you need. Our minimally invasive mesotherapy program, assisted by our AccuVein device, delivers precise injections to break down fat cell walls and promote substantial cellulite reduction.
What Is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment. This method delivers a series of injections that mimic lipolysis, the body’s natural process of breaking down fat. This specialized treatment plan uses a solution that is balanced individually for each patient’s specific needs.
Injecting this solution into the mesoderm layers of the skin causes your body to destroy the walls around fat cells, disrupting and clearing away troublesome cellulite. Returning elasticity to the targeted areas helps the overlying skin to plump up, greatly diminishing the appearance of any visible lumps and dimples.
Our cellulite reduction treatment is done with the assistance of a special device called the AccuVein. It provides an accurate map of your veins, ensuring that the injections are correctly placed on your body. This advanced technology helps deliver impressive results while minimizing risk and maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment.
How Does Mesotherapy Work?
Our cutting-edge mesotherapy treatment works by harnessing ingredients found naturally in the body, formulating a solution that is tailored to each patient, and deploying the injection with pinpoint accuracy.
The main ingredients employed in mesotherapy are phosphatidylcholine (PPC), multivitamins, and saline. PPC is a natural lecithin consisting of two fatty acids derived from soy plants.
The solution is similar to the PPC variation that your body naturally produces. For instance, PPC is produced by fetuses in the fourth month of pregnancy to prevent infant lungs from sticking together. It performs a similar function for the intestines.
Once PPC is correctly formulated to promote cellulite reduction, it is then injected directly into the fatty tissue using hyper-thin needles. The fat cells’ membranes swell and then harden. At this point, fat breakdown occurs, transforming fat cells into tiny particles that the liver eventually processes into carbon dioxide and water.
Because we customize the solution to your body and always perform an AccuVein screening prior to beginning your injections, your treatment will be as convenient, comfortable, and effective as possible.
What Areas Can Mesotherapy Treat?
Almost any area with cellulite buildup can be treated by non-surgical fat reduction. Areas treatable with injection-based lipolysis include:
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Upper arms
- Flanks, or “love handles”
- Residual fat after liposuction
Different patients tend to hold subcutaneous fat in different areas of the body. No matter your body type, mesotherapy can help you target unwanted cellulite and help you look and feel your best.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
Before we schedule your treatment, we will begin with a comprehensive consultation. During your consultation, we will review your medical history, your intended treatment areas, and your desired results.
After we have established you are a good candidate for mesotherapy, we will explain the details of the procedure and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
On the day of the treatment, we will have already prepared your specialized solution. During the treatment, we will perform a series of injections into the pre-planned treatment areas.
The amount and placement of these injections will vary from person to person, but we will discuss your specific needs beforehand during your consultation, so there will be no surprises.
Mesotherapy injections are generally well-tolerated, but If your skin is sensitive, we can apply a numbing cream before beginning your treatment. Once the solution is injected, lipolysis will begin, hardening fat-cell walls before breaking down these localized areas of fat.
The treatment itself takes less than an hour and requires no downtime, so you can immediately return to your daily activities.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
After your treatment, it typically takes about three weeks for you to begin seeing results. For most patients, we recommend a series of treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to provide satisfactory cellulite reduction.
Once we have performed your consultation, we will be able to recommend the exact number of treatments you may need to achieve your desired results.
What Are the Benefits of a Mesotherapy Treatment?
The benefits of mesotherapy are plain to see. Our non-surgical fat reduction technique can reduce cellulite, smoothing the skin and decreasing the appearance of excess fat.
