Hi Mo, thank you for the question.

Mesotherapy is an effective tool when used by a properly trained and experienced injector. One can achieve good results for rejuvenating the skin; however, a number of treatments are required before one can rely purely on the 3 monthly maintenance treatments. There is scanty data available when using this technique for cellulite and fat loss and a number of doctors worldwide prefer to inject the fat dissolving solutions directly into the problem areas.
