Mesotherapy Treatment Procedure
Careful discussions regarding your reasons for wanting treatment of your skin are very important, before you begin mesotherapy. You must also make sure that this treatment can deliver what you want and how you would like to look afterwards.
A medical history should also be taken to make sure that there are no reasons why you should not undertake treatment. You may be asked to sign a consent form, which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with the procedure.
Photographs may also be taken by the practitioner for a “before and after” comparison at a later date.
Treatment may be carried out immediately after an initial consultation, at which point you will be informed as to how many treatments you will require.
Mesotherapy Treatment involves tiny superficial injections of a potent skin rejuvenating cocktail of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and amino acids. When this cocktail is injected across the skin barrier to where it can have an effect, it promotes the production of collagen and elastin, whilst stimulating the skin’s metabolism. Just a “drop” of solution is used at each injection site.
The idea is that you can get these active substances to the site requiring treatment by directly injecting them there. This is instead of relying on a tablet or intravenous injection, where higher concentrations of the drug are required in order to get adequate levels to the site requiring treatment. Mesotherapy is both more precise and requires less solution to be injected.
The actual preparation injected into the mesoderm or surface layer of the skin during Mesotherapy depends upon the problem being treated. In general, the substances used can include a local anaesthetic and products that may reduce inflammation and treat veins such as muscle relaxants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, hormones and hormone blockers.
Mesotherapy is also known as “skin-prick rejuvenation,” as it helps give your skin the boost it needs to look brighter and feel firmer, as well as fade the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Mesotherapy treatments take approximately 30 minutes to administer and can be slightly uncomfortable so an anaesthetic treatment is used to manage discomfort. Initial treatments begin at 3 sessions, scheduled one month apart. Maintenance sessions are scheduled 3 to 4 times per year. After the treatment you can return to normal activities.
Mesotherapy is an interventional natural medicine technique. Mesotherapy must be performed by a licensed health care clinician who is permitted to do injections.
