Mesotherapy is an effective, non-surgical technique that uses micro-injections of pharmaceutical actives, vitamins, anti-oxidants, trace elements, amino acids, enzymes, homeopathic ingredients and other clinical formulations into the subcutaneous adipose (fat) layers of the body, in order to achieve specific results. All ingredients used are formulated in a registered sterile laboratory and beneficial to the overall health of the body.(*)
Lipolysis is an effective therapy to remove unwanted fat deposits in the body. The non-surgical procedure involves induction of sterile active ingredients via subcutaneous micro-injections (MESOTHERAPY) to reduce localised fat deposits and decrease subcutaneous adiposities (fat cells). Lipolysis treatments can deliver dramatic results in a short space of time and is one of the safest methods for fat reduction in areas such as the double chin, hips, waist, thighs, abdomen, upper arms, and knees. Lipolysis is also used to improve the effects of dieting and exercise and effectively combats cellulite.(*)
The treatment consists of a of 3 parts
PPC: This consists of a mixture of phosphatidylcholine (PPC) and deoxcholate (DC), which are substances that occur naturally in the human body. PCDC facilitates the emulsification of fat into the tiniest particles, enabling the absorption and transportation of fat. After administration, PCDC induces an enzymatic reaction which leads to the dissolution of fat by producing an emulsion of nano-sized monoglycerides that is transported into the liver and metabolised by beta-oxidation.
ANTI-CELLULITE FORMULATION: A specialised combination of natural active ingredients, formulated in a sterile laboratory to combat cellulite, eliminate localised fat deposits in the body and enhance skin firmness.
It improves circulation, lymphatic drainage and collagen functioning, reducing the appearance of cellulite and restoring the skin’s firmness. It helps the body get rid of retained fluids, stimulates lipolysis and inhibits the emergence of new fat cells, which visibly reduces the appearance of ‘orange-peel’ skin.
ADIPO FORTE: A product designed to speed up the process of lipolysis (fat metabolising) and eliminating localised fat deposits from the body contour such as upper arms, thighs, buttocks, knees and waist. Phosphatidylcholine dissolves the fat stored in the adipocytes or fat cells, allowing it to eliminate localised adipocytes. Deoxycholic acid is used in the reduction of localised fat.
L-carnitine transports fat from these stubborn localised fat ‘pockets’, releasing it for the metabolism to burn. Organic silica keeps the epidermis hydrated, firming and strengthening the skin, as well as acting as an antioxidant to actively prevent the acceleration of premature ageing.
It is recommended for individuals who are of normal weight or slightly over (up to 10kg’s over goal weight), but who have stubborn localised areas of fat deposits.
The number of sessions needed may vary from person to person and by the area being injected. You can expect results after 2 – 3 treatment sessions. It’s not a question of whether the therapy will work, but rather how many treatments it will take to attain a goal in reduction.
Treatments are recommended at intervals between 2 and 4 weeks depending on the patients’ response to treatment. It remains actively working on the fat cells for up to 8 weeks after the last treatment.
The results vary according to the patient's age, skin type, weight and lifestyle. Some people see results immediately, whereas others notice a gradual change over a period of weeks or months. Since Lipolysis is effective in dissolving surplus fat and helping the body to block fat storage the results are permanent. Improved blood flow to the targeted areas and the enhancement of lymphatic drainage, combined with the removal of fibrotic tissue result in a visible reduction of the orange peel effect associated with CELLULITE. People who are committed to a healthy lifestyle of regular exercise and a balanced diet should experience long term improvement.(*)
Slight burning sensation during the injection is expected. Should you have a low pain threshold; an anaesthetic cream can be applied. It is especially important to be hydrated prior to treatment and to drink plenty of fluids post treatment.
Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the treatment although hot showers and baths should best be avoided for eight hours after treatment. Patients should refrain from excessive exercising and massages for 24hours after treatment. A mild redness and swelling of the skin occur following the procedure which usually resolves within a few hours. Mild bruising may occur at the site of injection and resolves after approximately 7 days without any consequences. (*)

A product developed to combat cellulite and restore skin firmness
L-carnitine and caffeine mobilise accumulated fat, releasing it so it can be burnt by the metabolism. Caffeine also improves the circulation and tightens the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite. Fucus helps the body get rid of retained fluids, stimulates lymph circulation and has a detoxifying effect on the oedemas caused by cellulite. Ruscus helps address problems related to blood circulation. Glaucine stimulates lipolysis and inhibits the emergence of new fat cells, which visibly reduces the appearance of “orange-peel skin” and restoring the skin’s firmness. Lastly, organic silica hydrates, renews and regenerates cells and improves the synthesis of collagen.(*)
Cellulite results from changes to the microcirculation in which the fat cells are stimulated to synthesise and accumulate higher quantities of triglycerides, causing the cell to increase in size and the resulting tension in the fabric of the perilobular connective tissue, when the fat lobules become overloaded, causes an irregular appearance on the skin surface, especially on the thighs and buttocks.
Any substance that mobilises the fat and breaks up long- chain fatty acids, turning them into free fatty acids, is effective in combating cellulite. L-carnitine is present naturally in the body and its main function is to transport fat deposits into the mitochondrial matrix so that they can be converted into energy.
As it causes the accumulated fat to disintegrate, it is known as a fat burner. As well as promoting the catabolism, it helps detoxify and regenerate cells and restore the physiological function of the dermis. Caffeine, working in perfect synergy with carnitine, is a regenerative substance that improves circulation, drains the body's fat cells and tightens and tones the skin, helping reduce the appearance of cellulite. Applied topically, its action is lipolytic, destroying fat tissue and producing localised weight loss.
Our formulation also contains fucus, a brown seaweed called Fucus Vesiculosus L, which has anti-inflammatory properties and contributes to anti-ageing by improving skin elasticity; the polysaccharides it contains are natural antioxidants. Its thallus contains organic iodine, which mobilises retained fluids. It also stimulates the circulation, removing toxins and at the same time draining the oedemas that occur in the presence of cellulite.
Another plant included in this product which helps combat cellulite and contributes in general to addressing problems related to blood circulation, is ruscus, Ruscus aculeatus L. Thanks to its rutoside content and its diuretic properties, it has beneficial effects on varicose veins and tired legs, as well as on phlebitis. It is also used for skin problems such as couperose, a skin disease that manifests as facial erythema. This vitamin P-like activity of rutoside improves the strength of blood vessels.(*)
