What's mesotherapy? Can it help get rid of my abdominal fat?
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive surgical method of eliminating body fat that was invented in 1952 by Dr Michel Pistor, to treat pain based on the premise of delivering the correct amount of medication to the correct location. "When used to treat fat and cellulite, multiple minute intradermal injections are applied usually with the use of a special mesogun to the targeted area.
The theory behind this is the use of various lipolytic (fat-dissolving) agents that are able to break down the subcutaneous fat which is then removed by the body's own physiological mechanism," says Dr Chew Kek Kah from the NU•U Aesthetics & Wellness Clinic. "Treatments are usually carried out at intervals of seven to 10 days apart and typically at least four to six treatment sessions are required before you can see results," Dr Chew recommends consulting a medical practitioner trained in mesotherapy to explain the medications used, the results you can expect after treatments and the contraindications to the treatment.
