Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is where a series of superfine injections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids are delivered into the skin. This cocktail nourishes and rejuvenates the skin while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, both essential for skin’s natural elasticity.

Frequently Asked  Questions

What is mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a mixture of vitamins, minerals, medications, and other substances into the middle layer of the skin (mesoderm). It is used for various purposes, such as skin rejuvenation, cellulite reduction, and hair loss treatment.

Mesotherapy can be used for several purposes, including skin rejuvenation, reducing the appearance of cellulite, localised fat reduction, and promoting hair growth in cases of hair loss or alopecia.

Mesotherapy works by delivering a customised blend of nutrients and medications directly into the target area of the skin or scalp. These substances can stimulate collagen production, improve blood circulation, and provide nourishment to the treated area, leading to various cosmetic benefits.

The level of pain or discomfort during mesotherapy can vary from person to person. Typically, it’s described as mild to moderate discomfort, which can be minimised by using a topical anaesthetic or numbing cream before the procedure.

Common side effects of mesotherapy may include swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites. These side effects usually resolve within a few days. In rare cases, patients may experience infection, scarring, or allergic reactions.

A single mesotherapy session usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area and the complexity of the procedure.

The number of sessions required varies depending on the specific treatment goals and the individual’s response to mesotherapy. Typically, a series of treatments is recommended, often ranging from 4 to 10 sessions, with maintenance treatments as needed.

Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after mesotherapy. However, it’s common to experience some redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated area for a few days.

Mesotherapy is generally suitable for individuals seeking non-surgical solutions for skin rejuvenation, cellulite reduction, localized fat loss, and hair restoration. However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if you are a good candidate based on your specific needs and medical history.

The longevity of results can vary, but they typically last several months to a year. To maintain the effects, periodic maintenance sessions are often recommended.

Certain medical conditions, allergies, or medications may contraindicate mesotherapy. It’s vital to discuss your medical history and any current medications with your healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.
