The desire for healthy and glowing skin is never-ending. The eternal quest for perfect skin has led many clients to go under plastic surgeries in their search for the proper techniques that can help them achieve the skin they want. Mesotherapy is one of the most sought-after rejuvenating treatments for those who want that lit-from-within glow. This aesthetic procedure comes with many great benefits as it hydrates the skin while leaving it with a natural glow and radiance.
Although extremely popular in Europe, mesotherapy is lesser known in the UK. This is surprising because it can address a range of skin issues including fine lines and even hair loss. With an increasing number of individuals resorting to homoeopathic and organic plant extract-based remedies, mesotherapy uses skin-nourishing ingredients to rejuvenate your skin and make it appear bright, healthy, and youthful.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that diminishes the issues of dehydration, wrinkles, and crepey skin of the face and body. Mesotherapy is the infiltration of fluids containing Hyaluronic acid into the middle layers of the skin (“mesoderm”). Any number of Hyaluronic Acid blends which also utilise bioactive ingredients such as antioxidants, repair enzymes, peptides, amino acids, growth factors and other ingredients
Using small needles, the surgeon administers the cocktail of unique ingredients into the Mesoderm (middle layer of the skin). These ingredients are bespoke to you and your skin and the unique blends stimulate your fibroblasts to produce more hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin (depending on the needs of your skin). Alternatively, transdermal mesotherapy uses an electric current to push the same ingredients into your skin without the need for any fine needles.
Benefits of mesotherapy treatment
Mesotherapy treatment can be used to treat a range of skin problems such as dull, dehydrated and loose skin hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines. To nourish, heal, and renew skin, a typical mesotherapy cocktail might comprise numerous active components. The treatment has innumerable advantages, hence it is one of the most popular and routinely requested aesthetic procedures for use on the face, neck, decollete and back of hands.
Mesotherapy vitamin cocktails can stimulate the fibroblast cell in the skin to produce more collagen to combat the signs of ageing. Results appear usually after a course of six treatments and increase over time with new collagen and elastin forming. They are long-lasting and typically last around 12 months.
Overall skin rejuvenation
By injecting these unique cocktails of Hyaluronic Acid and vitamins, mesotherapy promotes the production of collagen and elastin and stimulates the skin’s metabolism producing healthier more radiant skin. A mesotherapy cocktail might generally contain over 50 active ingredients to nourish, repair and rejuvenate skin.
No down time needed
As mesotherapy is a less intrusive plastic treatment than others, it can be used in addition to your anti-ageing skincare. You don’t have to undergo surgery to obtain natural-looking and healthy skin after the enriched serums are administered to your skin through needles.
Mesotherapy vs. Microneedling
Although both microneedling and mesotherapy involve needling techniques, the main difference lies in the length of the needle, application, depth of penetration, speed of delivery and the skin conditions they treat.
Microneedling involves the use of multiple miniature needles to pierce the outer layers of the skin and is ideal for treating scarring, acne pock marks, loose skin as well as fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation, the It’s a mainstay to treat the primary signs of ageing. It acts by creating microscopic ruptures on the skin surface which induce inflammation, healing and increased fibroblast activity.
On the other hand, mesotherapy treatment is a minimally invasive treatment where a single hollow needle is used by the practitioner to inject a cocktail of vitamins, hyaluronic acid and growth factors into the superficial and middle layers of the skin in order to restore function and appearance by rehydrating the skin and increasing cell regeneration. Mesotherapy’s an incredibly powerful aesthetic procedure since it targets deeper layers of the skin that other non-invasive treatments can’t reach.
Keep in mind that you must always seek the advice of a highly-qualified plastic surgeon before undergoing any even minimally invasive procedures, to ensure you choose the right treatment(s) for the right condition(s) in the safest and most effective combination.
