Mesotherapy was pioneered by French doctor Michel Pistor back in the fifties. Mesotherapy can instantly improve dull, tired looking skin and superficial wrinkles. It can also be used to address pigmentation problems, treat acne scarring and enhance the effects of other aesthetic treatments such as fillers or Botox.
It is a minimally invasive procedure where a series of superfine injections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids are delivered into the mesodermal (middle layer between outer and inner layer of the skin). This infusion of ingredients will nourish and rejuvenate the skin making it, while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, both of which are essential for the skin’s natural elasticity making it more radiant, hydrated, nourished and firmer with an improved texture
Treatment time takes approximately thirty minutes and because the needles are small and enter and exit quickly, this treatment is generally not painful, however it can by slightly uncomfortable so an anesthetic cream can be used if the skin is a little sensitive. With minimal downtime – a little bruising and swelling may occur but it will be short lived and should settle within 24 hours – skin will become more radiant, hydrated, nourished and firmer with an improved texture. A course of 6-8 sessions are advised every two weeks with maintenance treatments 1-2 times a year.
Facts About Mesotherapy
1. Mesotherapy rejuvenates from the inside.
Unlike topical treatments – which treat the top layer of skin – mesotherapy works from within the skin to promote collagen, elastin, and cellular turnover.
2. Stimulated skin metabolism – tighter, firmer skin!
Many clients report feeling tighter and more contoured after a mesotherapy treatment. As the skin’s metabolism increases, skin tightens, making the treatment area look slimmer and smaller.
3. Mesotherapy can be used for multiple trouble spots.
Mesotherapy can be used for a variety of trouble spots. Micro-injections of hyaluronic acid can be used to plump the hands, neck, and chest area for firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
4. The treatment is surprisingly old!
Is mesotherapy a new treatment? Actually, these injections were pioneered by French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, making this therapy over 60 years old.
5. Mesotherapy can complement your other skin treatments.
Mesotherapy can be used as a complement to other skin care treatments, including skin peels, Botox injections, and dermal fillers.
