Cost of Mesotherapy

The mesotherapy cost depends on the nature of treatment you are getting and the total number of required sessions. A single session may cost between $250 and $650. Mesotherapy is not medically necessary because it is a cosmetic procedure. Insurance companies often avoid any cover for these sessions.

Prepare Your Skin

Before mesotherapy, you have to consult your doctor. He may ask you to avoid Bufferin (aspirin) and other anti-inflammatory nonsteroidal drugs (NSAIDs) for a week before this treatment. The pain relievers may increase the risk of bruising and bleeding during mesotherapy.

During every session, you may not get numbing medicine for your skin. Doctors often use a series of injections with short needles. These are attached to a mechanical gun to deliver several injections in one row.

Injections are given at dissimilar depths from 1 – 4 millimeters in your skin. A doctor can place needles in your skin at a specific angle or flick his wrist swiftly while injecting. After each injection, your skin will get a small drop of solution.

Prepare your mind for several sessions to get desired benefits. Sometimes, you have to visit your doctor between 3 and 15 times. Initially, you may get injections every 7 – 10 days. In case of improvement, the treatment can stretch out to once after two weeks or once in 30 days.

Effects of Treatment

It is difficult to say if this therapy works because of the different methods and ingredients used in mesotherapy. Outcomes may depend on the severity of your problem. Mesotherapy is a nonsurgical substitute of liposuction to remove unwanted fat.

Liposuction removes fat from different areas. Cosmetic surgeons can perform this procedure by insert a plastic tube through minor cuts in the skin. The surgeons use a surgical vacuum to suction out the fat. During this process, the patient is kept under anesthesia. The average cost of this treatment is $3,200. Mesotherapy is a noninvasive process without incisions. The cost is less than liposuction, and you can get good results in almost 10 sessions.
