What Is Mesotherapy?
This versatile treatment is a highly-targeted, non-invasive therapy which involves a series of micro-injections into the mesoderm, the area of skin where cell growth and repair takes place. These micro-injections contain a combination of nourishing agents (such as vitamins A, B, C, E or K, hyaluronic acid, minerals and/or amino acids). These are all substances which are naturally occurring - mesotherapy simply tops up their levels within the skin. The procedure works on two levels simultaneously - the micro-injections stimulate the skin itself whilst delivering a powerful cocktail of nutrients right to where they are needed most resulting in improved skin elasticity and tone.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Mesotherapy Work & Is It Safe?
Mesotherapy is a safe, non-surgical treatment during which various nourishing substances are injected into the mesoderm (the area of skin where cell multiplication and repair take place) in a series of superficial injections which are carried out by hand or with an injection device delivering rapid injections for larger areas. Normally it is easily tolerated, but for sensitive areas anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment.This therapy rejuvenates skin and provides a more youthful (hydrated and luminous) complexion.
Where Can Mesotherapy Be Used?
Mesotherapy can be applied all over the body to rejuvenate skin and promote fat reduction. The most common areas treated are the face (including jowls and chin), neck, décolletage, hands, legs, buttocks, abdomen and arms.
What Does Mesotherapy Feel Like?
Most patients find that mesotherapy is not painful however patients with sensitive skin may experience mild discomfort. This can be minimised by the use of an extremely fine needle as well as the application of topical anaesthetic.
