is an injectable treatment that is less known in the UK, but very common and popular on the Continent and in the US and Australia. The injections are performed as multiple superficial injections by hand, injecting small and measured amounts of different medications just under the skin. Some practitioners use machine aided techniques or Dermarolling but the best results are always obtained by a skilled by hand practitioner, using individually prescribed compounds. This method can help treat cellulite and localised trapped fat by improving blood circulation, lymphatic and venous drainage and facilitating the exit of fat from the fat cell. It also helps skin rejuvenation and hair growth. The products used at The Norup Clinic are all highly potent and tailor made to each clients needs. There are many advantages to the Mesotherapy treatment. The treatment only requires small measures of the medication, because it is delivered directly into the problem area. Side effects are minimal. Slight redness or swelling is possible but resolves within a couple of days. A topical anaesthetic cream is be applied or a lidocaine infusion can be added to the compound to make the treatment as pain free as possible. The treatment is given weekly or bi-weekly for a period of six to eight weeks. It can be repeated every other or third month.

is an injectable treatment using a more potent compound/enzyme to reduce the fat. The injections are made deeper and with larger amounts, into the fat area than in the conventional Mesotherapy technique. The Lipolysis works in a similar way to Mesotherapy. The main difference is the deeper injections and stronger compounds that are prescription-only. These chemical compounds cause the fat cells to break down and die. There are more side effects than with the Mesotherapy technique but equally better results are obtained. The injections are more painful and cause more swelling and stinging from the injected product. The treatment may be applied once every 4-6 weeks either once or up to 3-4 times.

Redness and swelling and light bruising are common features but will usually subside within a week. Due to this a patch test is always required prior to the treatment. A topical anaesthetic cream is be applied prior to the injections and the infusions contain lidocaine. The treatment should be repeated every month for 3-6 months, thereafter every 3-6 months.
IPL Infra Red is a soft laser treatment that heats up the skin and improve blood circulation and drainage. The laser also helps stimulate the collagen for new growth and tightening. If used together it enhances the Mesotherapy / Lipolysis or Vitamin injection.
Over time, localised fat cells enlarge, causing a reduction in blood flow and drainage to areas of the body. This can starve the area of oxygen and reduce the body's ability to remove the toxins from the area. These fat cells become connected to fibrous tissue that are organised in compartments and results in the dreaded lumpy "orange peel" effects or dimpled appearance on the surface of the skin. Over time the area becomes so deprived of blood circulation that the process is irreversible. Cellulite is particularly a problem on the hips, thighs and bottom. Over 90% of women have some degree of cellulite and even some men too. It usually appears between the ages of twenty-five to thirty-five and worsens over time.
Localised fat is fat which can be difficult to get rid of, even with a sensible diet and an active lifestyle. In women, fat cells on the lower half of the body store fat around six times more readily than those on the upper half. They also release fat around six times less easily so this can make weight loss from the lower half of the body terribly difficult, if not almost impossible. Fat-dissolving enzymes can help.
There are many advantages to the Mesotherapy / Lipolysis / vitamin treatments. The treatment only requires small measures of the compound and is delivered directly into the problem area. This dramatically reduces any side-effects and makes the treatment available to more people. The side-effects of the treatments are relatively minor in comparison to surgical procedures and some people experience no side-effects at all. The side effects increase when using more advanced techniques such as Lipolysis and Vitamin treatments. In general, redness or swelling and bruising are likely side effects but these resolve within at least a week. If you are thinking about having treatment please get in touch to discuss the best options for you.
