There have been some incredible advancements in the field of cosmetic medicine in the last several years. Beauty and anti-aging treatments are offering better results and lasting longer. One of the most amazing procedures has to do with fat loss.
Mesotherapy injections can provide quick and dramatic improvements in weight and body shape in a short amount of time. It can also be a part of a more significant overall transformation by developing a simple treatment regimen.
What Exactly Is Mesotherapy/LipoDissolve?
Mesotherapy uses FDA approved medications such as Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) to dissolve fat and cellulite. These practices have been in effect in France and other parts of Europe for years and are just now becoming more popular here in the United States.
How Does It Work?
Initially invented in the early 1950s and used as a vascular disorder treatment, after that, it was discovered that with slight variations, it could be used as a chronic pain medication, hair loss deterrent, and ever a few others. More recently, it has proven to be highly effective in fat removal.
The procedure is straightforward; multiple tiny micro-injections are performed in the target area. The medicine then hardens the fat cells in the body, causing them to break and shatter. From there, they are removed from the body through its natural processes.
What Are Some of the Areas It Works On?
Mesotherapy can be effective on several different parts of your body. One of the great things about this treatment is the fact that the most common problem areas can usually be addressed. Here are just a few of them:
- Love handles
- Upper arms
- Double chin
- Lower and upper abs

Your skin and complexion can take a beating in Chicagoland weather. Blustery winds in the winter and bright sun in the summertime can leave your face looking dull and drab. If you are ready to brighten up your skin, reduce signs of aging, and even reduce imperfections like hyperpigmentation, chemical peel treatments are an excellent place to start.
If you have never had a chemical peel, you may feel nervous about the process. When you choose to work with Beauty and Body by Mia, you can rest assured that we will put you at ease, make the experience comfortable, and give you the very best results.
Before Your Peel
Whether you choose a Retinol Vitamin C peel or a Glo and Go treatment, you will begin preparing for your treatment about one week prior to your appointment. You’ll be asked to discontinue any use of Retinols, Vitamin A creams, or Retin A about 5 days before your appointment. Skip shaving, waxing, or threading as well in the treatment area. Continue using your sunscreen and makeup as normal.
During Your Peel
During your appointment, you won’t feel any discomfort aside from tingling or slight stinging. Your appointment will be relatively short and we will be sure to leave plenty of time to review with your any post-treatment instructions. You’ll have a post-treatment skin care kit that you will use instead of your normal skin care regimen for 5-10 days. You may notice that immediately after treatment your skin feels smooth and tight; this is normal.
After Your Peel
Once you have returned home from your appointment, don’t wash your face for at least 8 hours. Your skin will likely begin to peel within 2-3 days. Everyone is different, and some people may not peel at all while others will peel around days 5-7. Never force the peel by picking or sloughing off the skin on your own.
Finally, for the best results, we encourage clients to schedule another treatment in three weeks.
