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.
Michel Pistor, a doctor in France, developed the technique in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. In the years since, it has gained popularity in the United States and other parts of the world.
WHAT CAN MESOTHERAPY TREAT?
Today, mesotherapy is 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
- re-contour the body
- lighten pigmented skin
- treat alopecia, (a condition that causes hair loss)
The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of the skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues – like poor circulation and inflammation – that cause skin damage.
Mesotherapy can instantly improve dull, tired-looking skin and superficial wrinkles. It also helps to improve sluggish blood circulation by flushing out ageing toxins. This treatment also addresses hyperpigmentation, treats acne, and gives you a ‘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 ageing. 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 to cope with the ageing process.
A typical mesotherapy cocktail might generally contain over 50 active 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 it can be combined alongside anti-wrinkle injections and fillers.
