Mesotherapy treatment usually takes around 30-60 minutes to perform. If you have requested topical anaesthesia then an additional 30 minutes would be required for this to take effect.
The time that you can expect to see results will depend on the purpose of treatment. For skin rejuvenation especially patients often comment on how glowing and fresh their skin felt in the days following treatment. For treating areas of cellulite it can take up to 3 session before you can start to see the initial results.
The downtime following mesotherapy is minimal however you may experience;
Bruising – Bruising is common around the injection site and it can last for up to a week.
Tenderness – The area treated may feel tender when touched which can last 1-2 weeks. Further treatment should not be carried out until this has subsided.
Swelling – Swelling is another common result from mesotherapy treatment, it is normal and to be expected from treatment, it should only last a few days following treatment before settling.
Redness – The majority of patients will have some form of redness immediately following treatment. This is quick to fade and is usually not noticeable after 24 hours.
Our expert doctors and nurses will explain in detail what to expect following Mesotherapy treatment and we have a 24-hour patient helpline should you feel worried at any time.
The results following mesotherapy are expected to last for up to a year following treatment. In order to maintain your results, continued treatment will be required. The best results are seen on patients who live a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise, nutritious diet and good skin care.
If you do not continue with mesotherapy treatment then the results are likely to disappear after 12-18 months.
