Even with diet and exercise, it can be a challenge to get rid of cellulite. Cellulite is actually trapped pockets of fat that give that dreaded dimpled look. It can happen in many parts of the body, including the inner and outer thighs, buttocks, arms, and stomach. As an alternative to liposuction, many people turn to meso treatment to get rid of unsightly cellulite. It’s an innovative treatment for cellulite that is just now catching on in the United States. Here’s a list of some of the advantages of meso treatment.

What is Meso-Slim ™?
Meso-Slim™ is a non-surgical minimally invasive treatment that is done via injections. The solution includes a mix of natural extracts, minerals, vitamins and fat emulsifying enzymes. Together, this mixture shrinks fat cells and removes fat beneath the dermis. The treatment destroys both the connective tissues and pockets harboring fat. Once the fat pockets are dissolved, it is naturally absorbed by the bloodstream and flushed out. The end result is skin that is smooth looking and bump-free.
Injections are given in the trouble areas with a tiny needle. It’s practically pain-free and feels like a tiny insect bite. Many patients see immediate results after the first few treatments. For optimal results, four to six treatments are typically needed depending on the area treated.
Weight and Size Loss with Meso-Slim ™ Treatment
Most people report going down a dress or pants’ size after about four treatments. Visible results are seen in the treated areas, such as the love handles and outer thighs. On average, two to nine inches can be lost with six treatments. The series of meso treatments are usually spaced out every two weeks to four weeks, and each treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
Aftercare of Meso-Slim™
After Meso-Slim™, ice should be applied to the treated area as needed to reduce inflammation or stinging. It’s important not to shower or take a bath within four hours of treatment. It’s also important not to take any anti-inflammatory, such as aspirin, but general painkillers like Tylenol can be taken for any discomfort. Hand massaging the treated area will enhance the fat elimination process, and walking 20 minutes daily also assists with the process. Just be sure to avoid any strenuous activities and exercise the first 24 hours. A follow-up appointment should be made in two to four weeks.
It’s important to note that Meso-Slim ™ is not a permanent solution for weight problems. The results are only long lasting when used in combination with a healthy diet and a regular exercise plan. While the treatment provides the elimination of fat cells, the fat cells can quickly accumulate again and form fat pockets if a good diet and daily exercise are not maintained.
