Mesolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that requires multiple fine injections of active ingredients into the treatment area beneath the skin to melt and remove small stubborn, unwanted pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. The fat dissolves and is carried through the bloodstream and excreted by kidneys and bowel. Therefore, very little, if any medicine reaches the general circulation and in any cases the level is so low that it has no effect on the rest of the body.
Unlike surgery, these treatments are usually relatively simple, require no post-operative recovery time, require no heavy bandages, and no anaesthesia. Numbing cream may be applied if necessary.
