What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that involves injecting a series of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients into the subcutaneous fat underneath the skin.
This infusion of ingredients injected will help to nourish and rejuvenate the skin whilst also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to help boost the skin’s natural elasticity.
Mesotherapy is not a new technique, it was originally established in France in the 1950s by Michel Pastor and was used to help improve circulation and treat sport injuries, vascular diseases and infection.
Mesotherapy has since been proven to be a great treatment for improving the appearance of dull and tired looking skin but it can also be very effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles and pigmentation. It can also be used in combination with other treatments such as anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers to help enhance their results.
We are also able to use our Mesotherapy treatment on other areas of the body to help reduce cellulite, tighten loose skin and it can also be used to help with alopecia and hair loss.
Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation
Mesotherapy is a great skin rejuvenation treatment. It can be performed all over the face, neck and under the eyes. Unique combinations of nourishing ingredients are used such as hyaluronic acid and amino acids to help promote healthy skin cells by increasing elastin and collagen production. The result is skin that is more radiant, hydrated, glowing, firmer and plumper following treatment.
Mesotherapy for Cellulite
Mesotherapy can be an effective way to reduce the appearance of Cellulite. Cellulite is often caused by the connective tissue bands that hold down the skin, trapping the fat and which causes a ‘dimpling’ appearance to the skin surface. A specialised formula of medications can be injected into the area which helps to break down the connective tissue bands, reduce the trapped fat which will eventually create a smoother appearance to the skin.
Mesotherapy for Hair Loss
Mesotherapy for hair loss has had great success in the United States and across Europe. We believe the effective results are down being able to bring the required active ingredients such as Acetyl tetrapeptide-3 and Biochanin A directly to the hair follicle allowing the hair follicle to firstly develop and grow, the blood flow of the scalp is stimulated and any excess of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is neutralised.
What happens during Mesotherapy treatment?
During your initial consultation your expert practitioner will decide on the best combination of medication to be used during your treatment and they will set you up a personalised treatment plan so you will know what to expect if you were to go ahead with Mesotherapy treatment.
On the day of your mesotherapy treatment multiple micro-injections will be administered to the areas being treated either using a mesotherapy gun or as single manual injections. The injections will contain a combination of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients as previously agreed by your practitioner. The injections can be delivered at different depths from 1-4mm which will depend on your skin and the purpose of treatment.
What is the downtime following Mesotherapy?
The downtime following Mesotherapy treatment is minimal most patients will experience some redness immediately after treatment but this will gradually fade over 24 hours. Some patients may develop bruising around the injection sites and feel soreness around the treated area which can last up to a week.
Patients are recommended to avoid baths, massages, saunas, mudpacks and lymphatic drainage for 24 hours following treatment. Sunbathing should be avoided for 48 hours and usual skin care routine can be resumed after 24 hours.
What are the results from Mesotherapy?
You may begin to notice a glow and fresh feeling to your skin in the days following treatment. The best results are seen after patients have had the full course of treatment.
