Mesotherapy is one of the most popular and the most demanded non-invasive alternatives to liposuction, a fat removal technique in which extra fat is sucked out of the body using a cannula tube. However, many people do not want to undergo liposuction because of various reasons and look for a valid liposuction alternative.
The downside of liposuction is that it comes with the customary side effects that can be associated with any other surgical procedure. Some of these side effects are minor while others are major, especially when general anesthesia is involved. Recovery time for liposuction is also an issue in case of liposuction. All these issues prompted the candidates as well the surgeons and the researchers to find out valid non-invasive alternatives for liposuction. If you are also seeking a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, Mesotherapy may be an option worth considering.
Mesotherapy involves injecting various vitamins, minerals, medications and herbal extracts into the subcutaneous fat using a hair thin needle. This minerals and vitamin cocktail will cause the excess fat to melt. Your body then removes this melted fat through natural cleansing process. It is a great alternative to liposuction because you don’t need weeks to recover from it and you will not be as sore as you would be after liposuction.
Some other non-invasive alternatives of liposuction include Thermage, Lipodissolve and Liposelection. Thermage uses laser beams to tighten the patient’s skin by heating up the collagen underneath your dermis. It can be used to treat different areas of the body as well as face, such as double chin. It is also considered as a painless, non-invasive alternative for surgical facelift.
Lipodissolve, also known as Lipolysis, is another non-surgical alternative for liposuction that works by flushing the fat out of the body through urine. The procedure involves injecting a chemical cocktail comprising of medications, enzymes and herbal extracts into the subcutaneous fat in the areas that needs treatment. This causes the fat to dissolve into blood and flush out. Lipodissolve is similar to mesotherapy and are often used interchangeably, but they are two different techniques, though there is a very slight difference between both these techniques. It is often recommended for removing excess fat from neck and chin areas.
Liposelection also offers a minimally invasive alternative to liposuction. The procedure involves injecting a saline solution into the fatty areas to restrict blood flow to these areas. This blockage causes the fat tissues to break down. Then ultrasound energy is used to soften the fat in the treatment areas and it is ultimately sucked out of the body using suction and massage method. It can be termed as Ultrasound assisted liposuction but it is way too less painful as compared to traditional liposuction. One benefit of this technique is that unlike other non-invasive fat removing procedures, it can also be used to remove somewhat larger deposits of fat as well.
All these non-surgical alternatives are really effective but only for the individuals who require small treatments. You are an ideal candidate for mesotherapy, lipolysis and Thermage if you are near to normal weight that has been stable for almost a year and have small area that needs treating. Greater fat deposits cannot be effectively dissolved using these non-invasive techniques.
