What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a non-invasive technique based on superficial microinjections, just below the epidermis, into the target tissues.

The term «meso» is derived from the mesoderm or middle layer of the skin

Mesotherapy is a treatment where injections of differing agents (drugs, nutrients, botanicals, enzymes, and vitamins) are used to treat localized conditions.

In the past, mesotherapy was used to treat a variety of conditions

There are many different combinations of medications

History of Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy has actually been used since the mid-1800s, when different agents were injected to reduce pain.

In fact, in the 1930s it was used as a treatment for migraine headaches.

In 1958 Dr. Pistor of France coined the term mesotherapy and was really the father of modern day mesotherapy.

In 1964 the French Society of Mesotherapy was formed, and in 1987 the French Academy of Medicine recognized mesotherapy as a verified branch in French medicine.

How Does Mesotherapy Work?

Mesotherapy involves the micro-injection of specially prepared active ingredients, injected directly into the skin cell. It delivers vitamins into the mesoderm, or middle layer of skin, acting as a "medicinal bullet" that is delivered directly to the target area. It can also be used to reduce cellulite, localizing fat deposits and promoting weight loss, by stimulation of metabolism, local circulation and fat breakdown. 

It involves multiple injections using a very fine needle placed immediately beneath the surface of the skin into the problematic area/s. Just a "drop" of solution is used at each injection site.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Mesotherapy? 

Mesotherapy is commonly used to rejuvenate skin on the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Fat reduction can be applied anywhere but most frequently on jowls, chin, legs, buttocks, abdomen and arms.

Mechanism of action of Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy employs both the physical (mechanical) and the chemical stimulation. Small doses of different medications are administered in specific areas depending on the condition being treated. They act like a medicinal bullet that is delivered directly to a target in the body.

Mechanical: The needle is creating micro perforations that induce a healing process. The posttraumatic response of the organism is to produce collagen and elastin – two of the key building blocks of skin. As there is no removal or “real” damage to existing collagen, the new formation of it simply adds to existing levels.

Chemical: The injected active ingredients will stimulate the organism. For instance, if the circulation is poor, a vasodilator is used ( ex. coumarin); if excessive inflammation is present, an anti-inflammatory medication is used (ex. organic silicon). The quality of the product, its composition regarding the indication to treat is of first importance

Mesotherapy has recently attracted interest, curiosity and publicity as a treatment modality for several cosmetic indications such as cellulite, aging skin and body contouring , hairloss.

What are the uses of mesotherapy?

  1. Face Methotherapy:
    Where certain minerals, vitamins, amino acids, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants are injected with fine syringe in the face...these substances improve skin color and supply it with nutrients..also improve its elasticity and treat wrinkles and help face revitilization.

Primary Ingredients Used in Mesotherapy

  • A cocktail of different substances like natural plant extracts, homoeopathic agents, vasodilators, finasteride and minoxidil and vitamins are used.
  • In hair mesotherapy active ingredients are directly given on scalp. This is considered as a good alternative for patients who do not want to use oral medications. 
  • Hair mesotherapy is recommended for repairing damaged hair due to surrounding situations or genetics. It is also used for removing dandruff, strengthening very thin hair and revitalizing damaged hair mostly in women.
  • Hair mesotherapy assures the scalp to have a proportional quantity of amino acids that healthy hair should have; it also increases keratin production. These are the reasons why it is a very effective treatment for most hair and scalp problems.
  • Results vary depending on your body type and the condition being treated. On average, patients notice visible improvement in two to three sessions. For certain conditions, patients see results after the first session

Facial mesotherapy

Facial mesotherapy is a skin rejuvenation procedure that has been used in dermatology and aesthetic medicine for some time. It is a non-surgical skin treatment that involves using micro injections to apply natural ingredients already found in the skin.

Facial mesotherapy has many benefits; it helps to fight natural sagging and ageing of the skin, helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, and leaves the skin feeling rejuvenated and toned.

How Does Facial Mesotherapy Work?

The active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins (A, B, C, E, and K) and minerals are injected directly into the skin of the patient. These injections are inserted into the epidermal layer of the skin. As we age our skins circulation decreases, thus reducing the oxygen and nutrients ability to drive out toxins from our skin. This all leads to premature aging of the skin and can give skin a tired appearance.

During facial mesotherapy the skin is supplied with useful nutrients, minerals, hyaluronic acid and multivitamins, so, the condition of the skin is improved significantly after the procedure.

For achieving effective results patients are usually advised to undergo between five and eight treatments.

Mesolif/Skin Rejuvenation

  • The Mesotherapy process called Mesolift is a smart approach to treating age-related sagging and wrinkles on the neck and face. It can also slow down the progression of wrinkling over time and help improve ashen complexion. Mesotherapy can aid in reducing fat from below the chin, getting rid of free-radical skin damage and tightening sagginess. Even the eyelids can show signs of improvement without the long recovery period and unnatural appearance that comes along with many types of cosmetic surgery.
  • Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesolift process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism.
  • After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer.
  • Mesotherapy can be used a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimens, including botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts.
  • Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. The procedure can be used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms and hands

Mesotherapy & Weight Loss Results

Cellulite is a condition of abnormal fat nodules that commonly form in the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. It is often due to insufficient vascular and lymphatic circulation. Mesotherapy treatments for cellulite consist of injections of nutrients and medications that enhance the vasolymphatic circulatory system

Mesotherapy is most commonly used to get rid of cellulite and stubborn fat deposits beneath the skin, but it's also sometimes used to reduce and rejuvenate sagging skin on the hands, neck and other body areas

How does this treatment reduce cellulite?

  • Lumps or dimples in the skin called cellulite impact perhaps 90 percent of woman, no matter their age or weight. It is usually most noticeable on the legs, butt, hips and midsection. It is caused by connective tissue bands holding down areas of skin and trapping fat while the fat bulges outward in other places. Cellulite can result in a texture like an orange peel, but Mesotherapy can treat all four stages of cellulite.
  • In most cases, medicines are delivered without needles using the Ultrapeel Transderm System. This blend of drugs interacts with cells and encourages the release of the fat inside so that it can be burned as fuel for the body. The treatment improves blood flow and lymph drainage in the targeted area and removes tissues bands while melting the fat. The result is improvement in the undesirable appearance and loss of inches in the treated area.
  • The medications that are used in Mesotherapy melt the fat beneath the skin and shrink the fat cells in the scarpa's fascia layer. The fat dissolves and, as occurs when fat is broken down during typical weight loss, is carried through the bloodstream and excreted. Cellulite is caused by connective tissue bands that hold down the skin, trapping the fat and thereby causing the "dimpling" effect. The medications used in Mesotherapy destroy the connective tissue bands and melt the trapped fat, creating a smooth, dimple-free appearance.
