Imagine a quick and effective cosmetic procedure that provides long-lasting results. Mesotherapy not only treats the signs of ageing but also nourishes your skin to truly brighten and refresh your appearance so you look younger and more vibrant.
History of Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy isn’t new. French physician Michel Pistor first developed the technique in 1952 to treat pain. However, in recent years it has become a popular aesthetic treatment option that first gained popularity in the United States.
Understanding Mesotherapy Treatment
An effective cosmetic treatment, mesotherapy consists of a series of injections that contain a mixture of enzymes, hormones, vitamins, and plant extracts that complement each other to help tighten and refresh aging skin.
Frequently, mesotherapy is used to administer platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) for even greater results. The product PRF is derived from the patient’s own blood to further enhance the results. Nowadays, aesthetic professionals turn to mesotherapy to treat the following:
● To smooth wrinkles and fine lines
● Eliminate cellulite
● Tighten loose skin
● Fat removal on the thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, face, legs, and stomach
● Reduce pigment in the skin
● Treat hair loss
● Recounter the body’s silhouette
How Does Mesotherapy Work?
The technique relies on ultra-fine needles to administer the injection series directly into the mesoderm (middle layer) of the skin. By administering the solutions with great accuracy into the tissue of the skin it is believed that circulation is improved, and inflammation reduced.
The mesotherapy process further stimulates the skin’s fibroblasts, so they start producing more elastin and collagen. In addition, cells are renewed with the nutrient mixtures. Basically, the needles effectively get the nutrients directly to the fibroblasts where your skin needs it the most.
Mesotherapy Administration Technique
The injections are administered using specialized short needles. In some cases, the needles are attached to a type of mechanical gun known as a Pistor Elance that can rapidly deliver the virtually pain-free injections with great precision.
Depending on the treatment, the injections vary in depth from one to four millimetres. Sometimes the needle is also placed at an angle. Every single injection administers a single drop of the formula for rapid results.
Number of Treatments
You’ll probably need to return to the physician at least three to fifteen times at intervals of every seven to ten days to truly reap the benefit of the procedure. In some cases, each treatment can be stretched out from two weeks to a month.
Types of Products Used
Common products used in mesotherapy include:
● Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF)
● Hormones such as thyroxin and calcitonin
● Herbal extracts
● Enzymes such as hyaluronidase and collagenase
● Hyaluronic acid
How Long do Mesotherapy Treatments Take?
You’ll need to set aside 45 minutes to an hour for your appointment if you plan on undergoing mesotherapy.
When you first arrive at the office, an aesthetic professional applies a numbing solution to the surface of the skin to reduce the discomfort of the needles. The actual therapy takes only about 15 minutes so is relatively quick.
One of the perks of this therapy is that there is no downtime so you can return to normal life or work following the appointment.
