Mesotherapy

      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.

      Is it also used to:

      • remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
      • reduce cellulite
      • fade wrinkles and lines
      • tighten loose skin
      • recontour the body
      • lighten pigmented skin
      • treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss

      Mesotherapy vs. Botox

      Though it is a popular procedure for weight loss, mesotherapy has more recently been marketed as an alternative to Botox or fillers like Restylane, as it works to plump the skin by building collagen. And while it can help treat wrinkles on the face, mesotherapy is not exactly a replacement for other procedures, like Botox. While Botox prevents wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles, mesotherapy works to nourish the skin, layer by layer.

       

      How many sessions will I need?

      Treatment sessions vary according to each individual client. If you are looking to achieve a glow for a special event then one treatment normally is enough as the treatment is known as the red-carpet ready skin, however if you are treating a particular skin condition then typically clients require around 4-6 sessions Typically, patients begin to visibly notice significant improvements after two or three sessions. Maintenance sessions are advised for 3 to 4 times per year.

      How to prepare and what happens during your appointment

      how do you prepare?

      You will meet with the doctor ahead of time to find out what to expect. You might have to avoid aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for one week before the procedure. These pain relievers can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising during mesotherapy.

      what happens during your appointment?

      During each session, you may or may not have numbing medicine applied to your skin. You will 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 are 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 will 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.
