Before explaining how the process of Mesotherapy can reduce the appearance of cellulite, it is important to understand what cellulite is exactly. Cellulite is a skin change that shows up as skin dimpling on the waist, thighs, buttocks, and/or hips. The lumpiness of cellulite occurs when there is a distortion of fibrous connective tissue under the skin, caused by fat deposits pushing and distorting the tissue. This is what leads to changes in the topical appearance of the skin. Although cellulite shows up mostly in females because of hormonal predispositions, it is possible for men to see signs of cellulite as well. Cellulite can be hereditary, but also depends on your skin’s thickness and the amount and distribution of your body fat.
Although many see it as a normal feature of the skin, some people dislike the appearance of cellulite. Understandably, it is more favorable to have skin that is as smooth as possible; therefore, many treatments and therapies have been put on the market to combat this aesthetic issue. One such treatment is known as Mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy is offered at our medical center as a solution to getting rid of unwanted fat and cellulite. Over a period of injections of a mixture of FDA-approved medicines and other natural substances approved for you by Dr. Ham, improvements to the appearance of your cellulite will occur. The mixture injected is aimed to destroy cell walls so that fat trapped in these areas can be excreted. With the injection of this formula into the mesoderm layers of your skin, fat chambers and deposits are reduced and become elastic again, diminishing the dimpling side affect associated with cellulite.
The injections used at Destiny Nirvana consist of a standard formula that is often customized for each patient. This formula is crafted to reduce fat in your cellulite, improve the circulation that has been impaired, and break down connective tissue so that your skin can appear smoother. The process typically requires multiple sessions at our medical center in order to fully rid your body of the unwanted cellulite. The sessions take less than an hour, and the process is easy. Different types of cellulite require varying injection techniques, and injections are performed in a specific pattern to maximize results.
Mesotherapy is an easy process and effective treatment method. You may experience mild to moderate soreness for a few days after the procedure, but this should not affect your daily activity. There is no surgery associated with the procedure, and therefore no down-time. Mesotherapy can also be combined with other therapies in order to increase effectiveness. Whether it is used as a treatment by itself or in conjunction with other treatments, Mesotherapy has been used successfully at our medical center (and worldwide) as a way to get rid of unwanted cellulite and fat deposits. Our medical professionals are able to deliver great solutions to your cellulite concerns through the practice of Mesotherapy.

It is however it’s well established that liposuction for submental fat is a precise, predictable and fast procedure.
