Mesotherapy vs. Liposuction

There is a big difference between the two.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires incisions and the insertion in the patient's body of metal probes that with a back and forth motion, causing significant trauma. Liposuction is suctioning out the fat cells, that will never return but if patients eat too many calories they will reaccumulate fat in other area where they never had fat before. The back, thighs, arm are frequent sites of new fat accumulation.

Mesotherapy works by disrupting the fat cell membranes, destroying the fat cell and releasing the fat to be metabolized and excreted in the same way it is processed when we loose weight with diet and exercise. (It is recommended that mesotherapy patients follow a reduced calorie diet during treatment to prevent the fat form being re-absorbed by other cells.)

There are no abnormal sites of accumulation and it is more difficult to reaccumulate fat in the areas treated.

Although the costs could be similar, mesotherapy offers no down time and is much safer compared to any surgical intervention.

Collagen Point Induction

Until now, laser resurfacing has been an effective way to rejuvenate facial skin. But why destroy the epidermis of the face to make it look smoother? Laser destroys the epidermis so that the tissues of the papillary and reticular dermis can be destroyed and thereby instigate the normal post traumatic inflammatory reaction. The extensive damage eventually leads to the dense production of collagen and elastin with subsequent skin tightening. There is no doubt that laser has made a lot of people happy… in the beginning. It is now time to look for a more physiological way of inducing collagen and elastin.

Can We Prevent Aging?

Longevity research has revealed one proven anti-aging method to slow aging and extend lifespan in mammals: caloric restriction of a nutrient-rich diet. Longevity research has demonstrated this to work in rats and mice, and it is now being studied in monkeys. While no anti-aging therapies have been shown to retard aging, there is a body of scientific evidence suggesting that they have this ability.

Molecular & Cellular Aging

Cells lose their ability to divide over time unless they become cancerous. This limit to cellular replicative capacity (Hayflick's limit or phenomenon) can be demonstrated in fibroblasts removed from the umbilical cord of newborns and cultured in vitro. The fibroblasts divide only until they are dense enough to contact each other--a phenomenon called contact inhibition. If diluted, the fibroblasts divide again until maximum density is reached. Studies have shown that the loss of replicative capacity does not depend on the total amount of time cells are cultured (chronologic age) but on the number of divisions (biologic age).

Theories Of Aging

There are more theories of aging than facts. Aging clearly occurs at different rates for different species, and even within a species, aging occurs at different rates among different individuals. The only reasonable conclusion is that aging must be genetically controlled, at least to some extent. Both within and between species, lifestyle and exposures may alter the aging process.
