Introducing Mesotherapy to Marine Drive Naturopathic Clinic

Are you otherwise healthy but looking to loose a few inches from your stomach, hips or thighs? Dr. Cathryn Coe, ND is pleased to bring mesotherapy to Marine Drive Naturopathic Clinic!


Mesotherapy was developed in France and have been practiced for over 50 years. There are several types of Mesotherapy – it can be used for fat loss, body countouring, and even to regrow hair follicles.


Whereas diet and exercise are the best ways to loos weight, sometimes we struggle with areas that just won’t budge. That’s where Mesotherapy is most effective.


During the procedure, a topical anaesthetic is applied to the area and the patient is left to rest for about 30 minutes. The area being treated is examined, measured, land marked with a felt pen, and tiny injections are made just beneath the skins surface. A total of 3 syringes are used per treatment, using a combination of phosphatidylchoiline, carnitine, and anaesthetic. Patients can expect to feel some soreness after the procedure, and should avoid swimming or bathing for the next 24 hours.

A follow up appointment is made for, 1 week and 4 weeks after the treatment and measurements taken. A typical result is 1-4 inches lost from the abdomen, for example.
