A healthy diet and exercise regimen may not be enough for to lose a few stubborn pounds, but there are some cosmetic treatments that can help you get rid of a few inches. Mesotherapy has been used in Europe for several decades, and works by killing off fat cells in the treated area using a set of injections made with herbal compounds and medication. An innovative procedure called Dermawave has been deemed ‘no-needle’ mesotherapy because it helps achieve similar results with the application of a cold laser and electrical energy.
How Dermawave Mesotherapy Works
DermaWave mesotherapy is a non-surgical procedure designed to smooth out cellulite and reduce the appearance of fatty tissues in ‘problem areas’ such as the waist, hips and thighs. The procedure involves delivering natural substances in the form of a specially formulated gel deep into the tissues without any needles.
The device works by emitting a low energy laser and a set of electrical currents deeper into the skin tissues, and then stimulating the skin tissues with a smooth, plastic disc. The process causes mild tingling and feels like a deep tissue massage. The electrical stimulation, combined with the non-thermal laser, helps to strengthen the skin and also makes the skin more resilient over time, reducing the risk of developing cellulite in the future.
Dermawave mesotherapy is a completely painless procedure, and most people need to undergo at least 10 to 15 treatments in order to see significant results.
No needle mesotherapy works using the Aquaphoresis™ process that helps tone and stimulate muscles and also reduces water retention by affecting the lymph system. Aquaphoresis is based on the synergic effect of:
Muscle toning and stimulation
Active substances that go deep into the skin tissues
There is no bruising or downtime involved with this innovative mesotherapy alternative, and patients need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain results. Over time, the dimpled areas will resolve themselves or become less noticeable, creating a smoother, more sculpted appearance.
