With the increase in the value given to aesthetic appearance in today’s conditions, men have started to feel more discomfort from hair loss and have started to seek treatment ways. With hair mesotherapy, mesotherapy products suitable for the nutrition and needs of the hair are injected into the hair.

Benefits of mesotherapy in cellulite treatment
- With the application of mesotherapy in the treatment of cellulite, the orange peel appearance on the skin decreases and disappears. Normally, the upper and lower layers of the skin are connected by vertically extending fibrous bands. While the normal fat cells between these bands are not visible from the outside, when the fat cells grow due to weight gain, they get stuck between the bands and cause bumps that look like orange peel from the outside. In the treatment of cellulite, lipolytic substances given under the skin with mesotherapy regulate blood and lymph circulation, break up fat cells and loosen fibrous bands. In this way, the skin looks smoother and flatter.
Our most powerful and important weapon in cellulite treatment is mesotherapy. However, the rate of cellulite treatment with mesotherapy also varies from person to person. The main factors affecting the treatment are genetics, cellulite stage, lifestyle and diet.

Regional slimming with mesotherapy
Regional slimming with mesotherapy is especially used in the treatment of regional lubrication that cannot be eliminated by sports. It is applied in the form of injection of mesotherapy products, which break down the fat cells in the body, into the oily area under the skin. After the application of regional slimming with mesotherapy, the disintegrated cells are removed from the environment by lymph drainage and blood flow and are excreted from the body. During this period, it is important to consume plenty of water so that the disintegrating cells can be removed from the body more easily. Again, sports, massage, dietary changes increase the success of the procedure.
Fat cells are one of the areas in our body where toxins are often stored. There is an increase in blood toxin levels after fat-burning, cell-destroying treatment methods.
