Mesotherapy and the French Secret
Have you ever wondered why French women look so radiant, elegant and vibrant???
We know that the French are responsible for some of the best skin care products on the market but one of the best secrets of all is MESOTHERAPY.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a medical technique that was developed in France in 1952 to improve circulation and treat conditions like rheumatology, sports traumas, infectious and vascular diseases. It has subsequently proved to be a very effective cellulite treatment and also is also good for fluid retention, lymphatic drainage, localised fat reduction and skin rejuvenation. Mesotherapy is can also be used for Hair Loss and Sports Injuries including Pain Management. All of which are available exclusively at the Claudia McGloin Clinic.
How does Mesotherapy work?
A specially prepared mixture of vitamins, homeopathic ingredients, amino acids, minerals and medications such as Hyaluronic Acid are injected into the problem area. This stimulates the fat cells and causes them to break away from the network of connective tissues in the skin. The excess deposits of fat are then dissolved and excreted through the bloodstream by the kidneys and bowel.
At the Claudia McGloin Clinic we use the French method of application. This is a light touch and rapid motion of a tiny needle which is used to place the Mesotherapy serum under the top layer of your skin. This treatment is not painful and will leave your skin glowing, radiant, rejuvenated, lifted and toned!
Mesotherapy for CELLULITE
According to recent research, 95% of women suffer from cellulite. Not that they’re the only ones. Less common perhaps, but men suffer from it to.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite results from a combination of fatty tissue and fluid retention. Typically (although not exclusively) a female problem, it can affect women of all ages irrespective of their weight. In women, fat cells on the lower part of the body store fat six times more readily than those on the upper body. They also release them six times less readily. This makes weight loss from the lower body almost impossible without the upper body suffering unnecessarily.
What causes cellulite?
A number of factors contribute to the development of cellulite. They include:
- Weight gain
- Genetic predisposition to fat accumulation
- Hormone changes throughout life, such as pregnancy and menopause
- Loss of tone and elasticity due to ageing
- Lack of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle
- Crash diets
- Poor nutrition
Mesotherapy involves injecting small amounts of homeopathic medicine immediately beneath the surface of the skin to break down the cellulite and to improve circulation and lymphatic and venous drainage. Each treatment takes about ten minutes and is not painful. After the treatment you can return to normal activities. The addition of Vitamin C to the mixture encourages the tone and quality of the overlying skin.
Treatment may be carried out immediately after an initial consultation at which point you will be informed as to how many treatments you will require. Micro-injections are given weekly over a period of 4 to 8 weeks. Some individuals may require a course of 4 weeks, although a full treatment course takes 8 weeks. The treatment is long lasting and the results measurable. When the desired effects are achieved, all that is required is annual maintenance over a 4-6 week period. Superb results are achieved and those being treated look and feel better both during and after treatment. Overall, with a moderate amount of lifestyle change, Mesotherapy can provide measurable improvements with people losing up to 2cm from the circumference of their thighs after only 6 sessions.
