Mesotherapy is an injection treatment that was originally developed in France to treat serious medical conditions, but is now widely used in cosmetic dermatology, especially in the area of skin rejuvenation.
Mesotherapy for Skin Rejuvenation
The technique involves microinjections of revitalizing vitamins, minerals, peptides, and amino acids that rejuvenate the skin, and combat the signs of aging. The cocktail of ingredients leave the skin looking radiant, youthful, and dewy.
As the skin ages, circulation slows significantly, making the skin look dull and less plump. Also, wrinkles and lines start to appear, particularly around the eyes and mouth. Mesotherapy increases blood circulation in the skin, and adds anti-oxidants that replenish the skin at the cellular level, leading to improved skin quality and texture.
How it works
The skin is first cleansed, after which the medications are injected into the dermal skin layer using a very tiny needle. When being used for anti-aging purposes, it is injected along the wrinkles and lines.
The combination of ingredients used for the procedure depends on the condition being treated. A series of 3 treatments is generally recommended, but improvements can be seen after the first treatment.
What conditions can be treated
Mesotherapy is used for anti-aging purposes to fill in wrinkles, as well as to tighten and lift the skin. It can also treat skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, acne, and melasma.
What to expect
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation, so there is minimal pain and downtime. There are also fewer complications. Although it is considered quite safe, allergic reactions to the medications can occur, and there is generally some bruising and swelling at the injection site.
