What Is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of small amounts of various substances, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid, into the middle layer of the skin (mesoderm). The treatment was originally developed in France in the 1950s and has since gained popularity worldwide as a non-surgical approach to address various cosmetic and medical concerns.
The procedure is usually performed by a qualified professional. The injected substances are selected based on the specific concerns of the patient, such as skin rejuvenation, and anti-aging. The primary goal of mesotherapy is to deliver these beneficial substances directly to the target area, bypassing the need for oral administration and potentially enhancing their effectiveness. The injections are typically administered using a fine needle or a microneedling device, which ensures precise and controlled delivery of the solution.
How does Mesotherapy work?
Mesotherapy works by delivering a customized blend of therapeutic substances directly into the mesoderm, the middle layer of the skin. The substances injected during the procedure can vary based on the specific concerns being addressed, but they typically include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, and other beneficial compounds.
The procedure is typically performed using a series of very fine, shallow injections with a specialized microneedling device. The injections are administered at the targeted areas, such as the face, neck, or body, depending on the treatment goal.
The key principles behind how mesotherapy works are as follows:
- Targeted delivery: By injecting the substances directly into the mesoderm, mesotherapy allows for precise targeting of the treatment area. This localized administration is thought to enhance the effectiveness of the therapeutic substances, as they are delivered directly to the cells and tissues that need them.
- Stimulating cellular response: The substances used in mesotherapy are selected to stimulate various cellular processes, such as collagen production, cell regeneration, and improved circulation. For example, vitamins and minerals may encourage the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Increased blood flow: Mesotherapy injections can also promote improved blood circulation in the treated area. This enhanced circulation can facilitate the removal of toxins and waste products, as well as the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells, promoting overall skin health.
Is Mesotherapy Safe?
Mesotherapy is often considered a safe procedure when performed by a trained professional. However, like any medical treatment, it may have potential side effects, such as bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection sites. It’s essential to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if mesotherapy is suitable for your specific needs and medical history.
What does Mesotherapy treat?
Mesotherapy is a versatile cosmetic procedure that can be used to address various aesthetic and medical concerns. Some of the common conditions and concerns that mesotherapy may be used to treat include:
- Skin Rejuvenation: Mesotherapy can improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity. The customized blend of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids injected into the skin can stimulate collagen production and promote skin renewal, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
- Wrinkles and Fine Lines: By encouraging collagen synthesis and skin hydration, mesotherapy may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially in areas such as the face, neck, and décolletage.
- Hydration: Mesotherapy can be used to hydrate and revitalize dry and dull skin, providing a radiant and glowing complexion.
- Scar Improvement:Mesotherapy can be used to improve the appearance of certain types of scars, including acne scars and surgical scars.
- Pigmentation Issues: Mesotherapy may help in reducing hyperpigmentation and melasma, promoting a more even skin tone.
- Stretch Marks: Mesotherapy can be employed to minimize the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating collagen synthesis and skin regeneration.
It’s important to note that the effectiveness of mesotherapy for each condition can vary depending on the individual’s response to treatment and the specific substances used.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of recommended mesotherapy treatments can vary depending on the individual’s specific goals, the area being treated, and the response of their body to the procedure. Generally, mesotherapy is performed as a series of 3- 6 sessions to achieve the desired results.
For skin rejuvenation, hydration, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, a series of 4 to 6 treatments, spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart, is often recommended. However, some individuals may require additional sessions for optimal results.
It’s essential to understand that individual responses to mesotherapy can vary. Some people may see noticeable improvements after just a few sessions, while others may require more treatments to achieve their desired outcome. The choice of treatment duration and the number of sessions should be discussed with one of our skin care specialists, who will assess your specific needs and adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
Additionally, maintenance sessions may be recommended to prolong the results achieved through mesotherapy. This helps to support the ongoing benefits of the treatment and address any gradual changes that may occur over time.
