Homeo-Mesotherapy (Homeopathic Mesotherapy or Biopuncture)
Homeopathic remedies have been used for many years alongside western medicines with a good degree of success. These remedies have also been used in the aesthetic treatment of cellulite and fat reduction
Homeo-Mesotherapy (often termed biopuncture or homeopathic-mesotherpy) is a specialised technique whereby homeopathic preparations (micro doses) are injected under the skin to the local area on the body which is in need of treatment. The mesotherapy technique was developed by the French Professor Dr Michel Pistor in 1952 and developed for homeopathics by Belgian physician Dr Jan Kersschot. Homeopathic preparations stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms and can help with pain control, inflammation and soft tissue injury including wear and tear. The technique is often referred to as Skin Prick Nutrition as shallow injections deliver nutrients and vitamins into acupuncture points or specific areas on the body to stimulate the body’s own self healing process.
Homeopathic medicines contain natural substances that are found in the body such as vitamins, minerals, aminoacids, coenzymes, proteins such as collagen, glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and plant DNA, all of which are crucial for cell protection and repair. Concentrations of these molecules in homeopathic medicines corresponds to their physiological concentration in the body, and as a result have no side effects or contraindications and thus no biocompatibility tests are needed.
Recent developments in biotechnology have produced specialised homeopathic mesotherapy products for aesthetic uses. Because these medicines are delivered locally they can help reshape the body by melting fat and reducing cellulite, rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen production and help revitalise the skin by directly feeding it with specific anti-ageing components and vitamins.
It must be stated, however, that compared to allopathic methods this type of treatment is more long term taking several weeks longer to observe results and must not be used as a replacement for allopathic medicines when prescribed by your doctor. Long term results are favourable and comparable and so the use of these non toxic, no side effects preparations have a good case in favour of their use.
What is Homeopathic Mesotherapy?
Homeopathic Mesotherapy is a medical specialty that involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural extracts (homeopathic preparations) into the skin. It can be used to reduce cellulite, promote weight loss, treat aging skin and rejuvenate the hands and neck as well as treat musculoskeletal and organ related pathologies.
How does Homeopathic Mesotherapy compare to liposuction for the removal of cellulite?
Liposuction does not treat cellulite and can actually make it appear more prominent. Homeopathic Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. Fat deposits are flushed from the body and do not reappear in other areas, which often occurs after liposuction. In addition it does not require expensive hospitalization or a potentially hazardous general anaesthetic with its’ associated downtime.
What can Homeopathic Mesotherpy treat?
Homeopathic Mesotherapy can be used to treat musculoskeletal injuries and medical conditions involving organs and tissues as well as improving cosmetic appearances such as ageing skin, acne, cellulite and stretch marks. It can also be used for fat contouring and reduction.
How can Homeopathic Mesotherapy reduce or eliminate cellulite and fat?
Homeopathic Mesotherapy can reduce fat within an area, improve circulation (cellulite often feels numb) and break down damaged connective tissue leaving the area smoother and with restored sensation.
How can Homeopathic Mesotherapy’s anti-aging and skin rejuvenation techniques reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
Subdermal injections of homeopathic anti-ageing preparations rejuvenate the cells, making them more active, and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Treatments for the face, neck, arms and hands can be used several times per year, even before wrinkles appear, to prevent their production.
How does Homeopathic Mesotherapy promote weight loss and specific spot reduction?
Customised formulas prevent cells from storing fat and can help break down existing fat cells. Spot reduction refers to pockets of fat and these can be targeted, such as double chins and love handles, to break down the fat cells.
