Treatments | Mesotheraphy for Cellulite
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is the administration of substances injected locally. The amount of medication is small and administered via super-fine, short needles that allow for micro-injections throughout the area to be treated. The pharmacological action is maintained thanks to the repeated administration.
Do the substances used in mesotherapy cause intolerance and allergies?
The medications that are used for Mesotherapy are the same as those normally used systemically; it is, therefore, the doctor’s responsibility, with a careful medical history, to evaluate whether there are grounds for a potential allergy.
In the treatment of cellulite, Mesotherapy helps:
- Improve circulation with a draining and detoxifying effect

- Improving the appearance of “orange peel” skin
- Fat reduction when present
