What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure where a series of superfine injections of a formula containing vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones, plant extracts and amino acids are injected into the mesodermal (middle) layer of the skin.
This customised infusion of targeted ingredients nourishes and rejuvenates the skin while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, both essential for skin’s natural elasticity.
Indications for 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 ageing toxins,as well as remove excess fat.
This treatment can also be used to address pigmentation problems, treat acne scarring and be combined to enhance the effects of other aesthetic treatments such as Botox or fillers. The most common indications for this treatment are:
• Removal of fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
• Reduction of cellulite
• Fading of wrinkles and lines
• Tightening of loose skin
• Recontouring of the body
• Lightening pigmented skin
• Treating alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss
Treatment time takes approximately thirty minutes and whilst not painful, it can be slightly uncomfortable so an anaesthetic cream can be used if skin is a little sensitive.
After the treatment
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 approximately 5 sessions is advised every two weeks with maintenance treatments 1-2 times a year.
