Mesotherapy (lipodissolve)

Mesotherapy, also called Lipodissolve, is billed as a fat-busting alternative to liposuction, but it is not approved by the FDA.

Mesotherapy (Lipodissolve) Side Effects

Mesotherapy patients have reported complications that include permanent scarring, deformed skin, and cramping. A writer for the Huffington Post notes that a personal friend had a rash and infection after she underwent mesotherapy.

Despite negative reports in the press and by the FDA, Dr. Bissoon, leading mesotherapy physician in the U.S., says the only side effects, when the procedure is properly performed, are soreness and slight bruising up to five days after the treatment.

Who shouldn't use it: Mesotherapy can be especially dangerous for individuals with a history of strokes, cancer, and insulin-dependent diabetes. It should never be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Drawbacks: There is no way to regulate the mixture that goes into the syringe or, for that matter, your body. You must depend on the person doing the procedure.

Recovery Time For Mesotherapy (Lipodissolve)

There is no recovery time and patients may return to work the same day.

After care for mesotherapy (lipodissolve): Don't take hot showers for at least eight hours after mesotherapy or wear makeup for about four hours. Avoid caffeine and other stimulants in general. You may be instructed to eat protein rich meals.
