What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is an injection technique that was widely used in France for many years to promote weight loss. It was subsequently used to treat other medical conditions, and is now used throughout the world in a range of cosmetic therapies.
Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation
Mesotherapy is now a sought-after treatment for conditions such as stretch marks, cellulite, and hair loss. It is also an excellent facial rejuvenation procedure, as it can correct skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and also firm sagging skin. Each micro-injection contains a mix of revitalizing nutrients such as peptides, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals, which are injected into the dermal layer of the skin. The infusion of nutrients helps to heal environmental damage, and produces skin that is polished and glowing.
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment, which means there is no anaesthesia, and the procedure is virtually painless. There is also no downtime. A series of 3-4 treatments is generally recommended, each treatment lasts for 30-60 minutes.
How Does it Work?
Treatment starts off with a gentle cleanse, and then a very fine needle is used to deliver the ingredients into the dermis. As the nutrition gets into the dermal layer, transformation starts to take place internally. The formulation of ingredients is customised based on the specific skin conditions being treated. The ingredients included are designed to improve the elimination of toxins, boost circulation and cell regeneration, and support the underlying skin structure.
What to Expect
After treatment your face will feel somewhat tender to the touch, and there will be some swelling and bruising, but this normally clears within a few hours. The results of Mesotherapy are temporary and generally last 4-6 months. Doctors therefore recommend undergoing follow-up sessions at regular intervals, in order to maintain results.
Aging can be hard on the skin, as the cumulative effects of too much sun, and the decline in skin proteins such as collagen and elastin, leads to the loss of volume and elasticity. When compared to other more invasive skin rejuvenation options, Mesotherapy is safer and more natural.
Mesotherapy holds several benefits for the skin, as it:
- Promotes cell regeneration. The nutrients are injected into the dermal layer of the skin, where they activate cellular processes that rejuvenate the skin cells, and stimulate collagen.
- Hydrates the skin. The essential ingredients increase moisture levels in the skin, so that the skin appears younger, and cellular function is optimized. Keeping skin hydrated helps prevent the onset of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Increases metabolism and blood circulation. The increased blood flow nourishes the skin. As more oxygen and nutrients reach the skin there will be a noticeable improvement in skin tone and complexion, and the overall health will improve.
Mesotherapy skin rejuvenation can be beneficial to people of any age. However, younger people are now realizing the benefits of starting anti-aging treatments early, especially to combat the effects of environmental factors such as sun damage, toxins, smoke, and weather extremes. Mesotherapy is a good option for them, because it is a gentle procedure, and the ingredients help to stimulate the body’s own natural healing process. Mesotherapy can be used to rejuvenate the face, neck, and hands, and restore their youthful appearance. It can also be used in conjunction with other aesthetic procedures such as laser therapy, in order to enhance outcomes.
