Looking for a way to treat fine lines, dull or dehydrated skin, acne scars, cellulite and stretch marks?
Mesotherapy may be the solution. Read on to learn more about this incredible aesthetic treatment.
What is Mesotherapy?
Dr. Michel Pistor originally developed mesotherapy in 1952 to treat vascular disorders and manage pain. However, in the decades since, mesotherapy has become an increasingly popular way to revitalize skin and achieve a healthier glow.
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure involving microinjections of carefully selected nutrients through tiny punctures in the skin. It is most commonly performed on the face and can be used as a form of therapy in certain other targeted areas of the body.
Mesotherapy leaves treated areas looking tighter, brighter, and more youthful. This treatment must be performed by a qualified professional after a consultation.
How Does Mesotherapy Work?
Mesotherapy is performed with a handheld tool containing many tiny needles which penetrate the superficial layers of the skin. A combination of carefully selected nutrients (such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and plant extracts) is injected directly into the mesoderm, or middle layer of the skin. The agent or cocktail is selected based on the issue being targeted, to promote the desired effect.
The multiple microscopic punctures stimulate improved circulation and enhance the skin’s ability to repair itself and reverse abnormalities. Mesotherapy also encourages more effective removal of toxins from the skin and can fix underlying problems that damage skin, such as inflammation and areas of weak circulation. The combination of these processes brings back a natural glow from the inside out.
Mesotherapy also increases collagen production, which helps fight common signs of aging. Collagen is a protein that plays a critical role in the development of muscles, and bones. In the skin, collagen contributes to the skin looking healthy, plump, and tight. After the age of 20, your body produces around 1% less collagen each year and this contributes to the signs of aging.
Sagging skin and wrinkles become more common and progress as you age. Sagging is particularly common around the jawline and neck and mesotherapy can cultivate firmer skin and tighten up those problem areas.
Benefits of Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a pain-free and minimally invasive way to improve skin quality and skin health. It can be easily used to target more sensitive areas such as around the mouth and eyes, forehead, neck, and backs of the hand.
What kinds of nutrients and cocktails can be used?
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of the skin which helps keep the skin hydrated. Adding it to your mesotherapy treatment can help give your skin a healthy glow.
Neuromodulator or microbotox injections can help give your skin a smoother appearance without affecting facial muscles and movement.
Specific mesotherapy cocktails can be used to target sun damage, pigmentations, and uneven skin colour or tone. It can even help lessen acne scars, stretch marks, and dark circles under the eyes.
Mesotherapy can be combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to synergistically enhance collagen and elastic production while improving circulation, resulting in healthier skin and complexion.
What Do You Need to Do After Your Mesotherapy Treatment?
It’s vital that you follow certain precautions following mesotherapy sessions, including:
● No strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.
● Stay out of direct sunlight and avoid heat for the first 72 hours.
● Try to minimize movement of treated areas, including massaging the skin.
Our team may also provide you with additional recommendations to help maximize the results of your treatment. If you have questions about these, or anything else related to your mesotherapy sessions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
