Which is better, mesotherapy or cavitation?

The beauty industry has come a long way with its non-surgical innovationshaving a toned body seemed exclusive to celebrities and almost impossible to achieve.

Now that it is possible to sculpt, shape and smooth your figure for a slimmer, more toned appearance, you might think that extensive cosmetic surgery is the only way to get the look you want. But this is not the case. At Clínica Rigo in Tarragona we offer multiple non-invasive treatments that can provide amazing results without the need for surgery.

Non-surgical procedures can help you look your best without having to undergo those dreaded scalpel procedures.. But you’re probably wondering which fat reduction technique is right for my body? Each of these is explained in detail below.

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a treatment that can give you smoother, more vibrant skin to go along with a flattering figure. Mesotherapy involves the application of injections of vitamins, enzymes and plant extracts into the area to be treated.. This cocktail of natural products can help correct underlying problems, such as poor circulation and inflammation, which damage the skin’s surface.

Think of it as a booster shot for skin cells, which can help rejuvenate and tighten the overall appearance of your skin. Mesotherapy is an excellent treatment option to break up localised fat deposits, reduce the appearance of cellulite, tighten loose skin, and even fade wrinkles and fine lines.

The needles used to inject the solution are very fine and only penetrate a few millimetres into the skin, so most patients experience no downtime after treatment.. There may be some slight swelling, but this should go away within a day.

Mesotherapy is a safe treatment that can be applied to any area of the body where you want to achieve a more contoured appearance or remove wrinkles, loose skin and cellulite. This includes the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms and even the neck and face. This procedurehelps to improve the appearance of tired or dull skin and has a revitalising effect.

What is Cavitation about?

Cavitation targets fat deposits and is often described as non-surgical liposuction.. However, cavitation is much less invasive, does not require anaesthesia or the use of a scalpel and allows patients to go home immediately with minimal side effects.

The cavitation treatment uses the ultrasound technique to break down fat cells in the body. A gel is applied to any area to be treated, then the ultrasound device is glided over the area repeatedly.

This device emits low-frequency ultrasound waves into the skin layers, which causes the release of fatty substances such as triglycerides, which are naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system, melting the fat and eliminating it.

The procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutesdepending on the size of the area to be treated. Most patients experience no discomfort, although there may be some mild bruising and temporary skin tenderness afterwards.

Cavitation creates a firmer, slimmer appearance in all treated areas, which can help you achieve the slim, sculpted figure you’ve been longing for. Any area that could be subject to liposuction can also be treated with cavitationbut with no downtime and much less risk.

What are the differences between mesotherapy and cavitation?

Both treatments have the advantage of being non-invasive, have no side effects and are effective in altering cells to eliminate fat deposits in targeted areas.

The main differences in these treatments lie in the methods used. On the one hand, mesotherapy is administered through a series of injections containing a cocktail of vitamins that work to break down localised fat deposits. It is also an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of cellulite and can also help to tighten the skin in areas we want to treat.

While cavitation uses the ultrasound technique and only focuses on helping to reduce overall fat deposits to give an improved silhouette. The results of this treatment are quicker to be noticed. However, in order to achieve similar effects on the same area, cavitation requires a greater number of sessions compared to mesotherapy.

Which one should I choose?

Many people make the mistake of thinking that only invasive surgery can reduce fat reserves, not realising that there are now many effective, non-invasive treatments available. These techniques are very effective in addressing and banishing stubborn fat reserves in specific areas of the body. 

While each of these treatments will provide an improvement in the appearance of your skin, we believe the best way to find out which will work best for you is to book a consultation.. Cavitation and mesotherapy can provide not only smoother, tighter skin, but also a slimmer, more toned figure. 

In terms of body sculpting treatments, mesotherapy will give you the most dramatic and satisfying results possible without having to worry about downtime and excessive recovery.

At Clinica Rigo in Tarragona, we are proud to offer fat reduction procedures such as mesotherapy which has minimal recovery time and is non-invasive. We suggest that you book a consultation with our highly qualified expert team. This is the best way to identify the best treatment for your needs.
