Mesotherapy Cost


How Much Does Mesotherapy Cost?

 
 average costMedium: $250-$450 per body part per treatment 
post Post    

In mesotherapy, substances such as medications, herbs and vitamins are injected into the fat beneath the skin to produce cosmetic effects. The most common use is to dissolve fat or cellulite. Fat-dissolving mesotherapy injections sometimes go by the names lipodissolve, lipolysis or lipostabil.

Typical costs:

  • Mesotherapy typically cost between $250 and $450 per body part per treatment. The average patient gets treatment on two to three body parts.
  • The average patient gets one treatment per week and requires 8 to 10 treatments; thin patients seeking treatment for problem areas -- such as love handles or cellulite -- sometimes require fewer treatments, while moderately overweight patients sometimes require more. The total cost for one body part usually ranges from $2,500 to $4,000 -- or up to $12,000 for three body parts.
  • Because mesotherapy is considered a cosmetic treatment, it generally is not covered by medical insurance.

What should be included:
  • Mesotherapy can be used to treat cellulite. excess fat, facial sagging and wrinkles.
  • In mesotherapy, the doctor usually uses small needles to inject a cocktail of drugs, vitamins and supplements into the mesodermal -- the middle layer of skin.
Additional costs:
  • The initial consultation can cost $200 or more.
Discounts:
  • Some doctors offer a discount of ten to twenty percent if a patient buys a package of five or ten treatments.
Shopping for mesotherapy:
  • Mesotherapy has been in use in Europe since the 1950s, but is relatively new to the United States, and its safety has been questioned because some of the drugs have not been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration as injectables for cosmetic purposes. The Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety stood behind recent attempts by Kansas state regulators to partially ban the popular mesotherapy treatment known as lipodissolve.

  • Side effects can include bruising, swelling, itching, redness and necrotizing of skin.
