Mesotherapy (Mezo Therapy) is a minimally invasive non-surgical treatment used to help eliminate cellulite from thighs, abdomen, hips, love handles, and buttocks while promoting inch loss as well as weight loss. Mesotherapy involves injecting microscopic amounts of natural plant extracts, homeopathic medication, and vitamins into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) breaking down existing fat cells to reshape and sculpt problematic areas. The unwanted fat is then flushed out through the system.
