What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a technique that uses injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat.

The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The idea behind Mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.

There isn’t a standard formula for the substances injected in Mesotherapy. Doctors use many different solutions, including:​

  • enzymes like collagenase and hyaluronidase

  • herbal extracts

  • vitamins and minerals

Benefits of Mesotherapy 

  • Mesotherapy can instantly improve dull, tired looking skin and superficial wrinkles but can also help to improve sluggish blood circulation, aiding the body to flush out aging toxins. This treatment can also be used to address hyperpigmentation, treat acne and ‘lit-from-within’ skin glow.

  • Mesotherapy vitamin cocktails  can stimulate the fibroblast cell in the skin to produce more collagen to combat the signs of aging. Amongst the list of skin-friendly plant ingredients injected are vitamins, growth factors, Hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants and trace elements that provide the ideal environment for healthy skin that copes with the aging process better.

  • A typical Mesotherapy cocktail might generally contain over active 50 ingredients to nourish, repair and rejuvenate skin.

  • It’s definitely worth doing if you have an event that you want a quick-fix for, and can be combined alongside anti -wrinkle injections and fillers.

What to expect?

During each session, you may or may not have numbing medicine applied to your skin. You’ll get a series of injections using a special short needle. The needle may be attached to a mechanical gun to deliver many injections in a row.

The injections can be given at different depths — from 1 to 4 millimeters into your skin — depending on what condition you’re having treated. Your doctor may place the needle into your skin at an angle, or flick their wrist very quickly while injecting. Each injection may only place a tiny drop of the solution into your skin.

You’ll probably need several Mesotherapy sessions to get the desired effect. You should expect to return to the doctor between 3 to 15 times. At first, you’ll get the injections every 7 to 10 days. If your skin starts to improve, the treatments will be stretched out to once every two weeks or once a month.

 

What are side effects of Mesotherapy?

Like with any other cosmetic injection procedure, very rare side effects might include bruising, reaction to the injected vitamin cocktail , infection, inflammation and swelling.

What to do before the treatment?  

 

  • Avoid use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs like aspirin, motrin, advil, ibuprofen, or any other non-tylenol, non-acetaminophen product) for 7 days prior to treatment to minimize the potential for bruising, unless the medications involved are prescribed for the treatment of an existing medical condition. If you must use these medications please let your provider know.
