Mesotherapy is a treatment where in a substance is injected into the middle layer of the skin and can target various concerns. Mesotherapy treatments can be divided into either bio-revitilization, hydrating treatments which are usually used on the face, neck, decollete and also hands or as anti-cellulite treatments for localized fat deposits. The method with which the product is injected is by multiple injections.
On the face, neck, decollete and hands a topical anesthetic cream is applied 45 minutes prior to the treatment for increased comfort during the treatment. The area looks as if bitten by hundreds of mosquitoes, with tiny bumps in each injection site. This subsides within around 24 hours. The product which is injected during bio-revitilization is usually hyaluronic acid or other Vitamins. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our skin but it diminishes its production as time goes by. Therefore this treatment will give the skin the lost hydration. This results in a healthy glow causing fine lines to improve. This treatment is usually repeated approximately 3-4 times a year to maintain the same result. During a consultation the Doctor will be able to recommend the best ingredients to use.
On the body mesotherapy is used to reduce cellulite or decrease localized fat deposits. Approximately 6 sessions are usually needed for a good result. The liquid which is injected emulsifies the fat causing the area to look smoother. It is recommended not to do strenuous exercise for the first three days. The area will initially look swollen and bruised. Redness in the area of treatment is also expected.
Aside from mesotherapy for the face, additional options for the correction of lines and wrinkles do exist, including facial creams, Botox®, Juvederm®, Restylane® and Teosyal® dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing treatments, thread lifting, and surgery. All these options can be further discussed with the Doctor during a consultation. . Book a consultation today by e-mailing us on . Click on links below for further information.
