What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a technique that involves the injection of substances directly into the mesoderm, the middle layer of the skin. These substances can include a range of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and plant extracts. The composition of the mesotherapy cocktail is tailored to suit the specific needs of the patient and the condition being treated.

How does Mesotherapy work?

The principle behind mesotherapy is that you can achieve higher concentrations of active substances at the site of the problem by injecting them directly into the skin, rather than applying them topically or taking them orally. The injected mixture can help to nourish and rejuvenate the skin, and promote the production of collagen and elastin.

What is Mesotherapy best suited for?

Mesotherapy is best suited for:

  • Skin rejuvenation: to improve the appearance of dull, tired, dehydrated and aging skin.
  • Pores reduction: to improve the skin’s texture and appearance.
  • Hair loss treatment: to strengthen hair and promote regrowth.

What to expect during treatment?

During a mesotherapy session, doctor will use a very fine needle to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer of your skin, or use a mesogun for the same purpose. The procedure typically takes between 10-20 minutes. Prior to the injections, a topical anesthetic cream will be applied to minimize discomfort.

What are the treatment areas?

Mesotherapy can be applied to various parts of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Scalp

Is the treatment painful?

Mesotherapy involves multiple injections, which can be uncomfortable. However, the needles used are very fine, and anesthetic creams can be applied beforehand to help reduce pain. Most patients experience only minimal discomfort during the procedure.

How many sessions are needed to see results?

The number of mesotherapy sessions required can vary based on the individual’s condition and goals. For skin rejuvenation, patients might see results after one to two sessions and the treatment course is usually around 3-6 sessions, often spaced out over 3-4 weeks.

How soon can I see results from?

Some patients may notice an improvement in their skin’s appearance after just one session; however, typically, it takes several sessions to see significant results.

What to avoid after the treatment?

Post-mesotherapy, you should avoid:

  • Excessive exposure to sunlight without protection.
  • Applying makeup or creams for a specified duration after the treatment (usually 24 hours).
  • Engaging in vigorous exercise for a few days after the procedure.

Are there any side effects?

Mesotherapy is usually well-tolerated, but as with all treatments involving injections, there can be side effects, which may include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain or itching at the injection site
  • Rarely, allergic reactions to the injected substances
