MesotherapyMedicine right where medicine is needed!
Mesotherapy was first developed by Dr. Michel Pistor of France in 1952. Today it is practiced worldwide.
Mesotherapy is a micro injection procedure that uses natural ingredients to effect change both medical and cosmetic. Mesotherapy is largely used for scar reduction, weight loss, hair regrowth and facial rejuvenation. At Opti-Balance our most popular forms of mesotherapy include: Liposculpture, Mesolift and our Mesohair.
At Opti-Balance, we offer liposculpture, which is a medical technique intended to sculpt the body using the fatty part of the skin. Liposculpture involves the injection of medicine into targeted areas of fat. The effect of the medication is to cause localized fat shrinkage that can be visible within as little as three to four treatments. Common areas of injection include the abdomen, thighs, hips and buttock region. If treating the abdomen, waist measurements are done regularly to track progress. From clinical experience, some systemic weight loss does occur in most individuals who have localized treatments with mesotherapy since the treatment promotes healing through increasing blood and lymphatic circulation.
Our Mesolift is a non-surgical way of refreshing the tone and texture of the skin on the face.
Our Mesohair protocol has been extremely successful in treating people with either patchy hair loss (alopecia areata) or receding hair lines with or without baldness.
How do we get started?
Once it has been established that mesotherapy would be beneficial for your health situation, a series of weekly or biweekly treatments are scheduled.
If you are contemplating surgery, Dr. Macart will be happy to go over the pros and cons of surgery versus mesotherapy so that you can feel confident about making the right decision for you.
How many treatments of Mesotherapy is enough?
The average patient does eight to 12 treatments. The number of mesotherapy treatments depends on the size of the area being treated and your personal goals.
How many treatments are required before I see results?
It depends. The doctor recommends initiating a course of four treatments as a minimum. Effects are subtle but may be noticeable in as little as three to four treatments. Periodically, objective measurements are recorded so you can track your progress.
Is Mesotherapy safe?
Mesotherapy is extremely safe and effective and most people are good candidates for this form of therapy. The doctor will evaluate your medical history and current state of health prior to initiation of treatments. Various side effects (eg. bruising) and contraindications (eg. bleeding disorder) may apply. Side effects are generally limited to bruising, a burning sensation post treatment, itching and swelling in some cases. Discomfort usually subsides within days to two weeks post treatment.
Can I go back to work or resume normal activity after the treatment?
Yes. The procedure generally takes 30 to 60 minutes and requires no preparation or recovery time. Avoid exertion for at least three days. Most patients find the procedure quite tolerable. If necessary, numbing creams are available.
