MESOTHERAPY

IS A SUBTLE NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT THAT ADDRESSES ALL SKIN CONDITIONS, EVERYTHING FROM DEHYDRATION, FINE LINES, FAT REMOVAL, CELLULITE AND HAIR LOSS.

Treatment tailored to specific client’ skin conditions and concerns.

Mesotherapy includes the use of the most effective ingredients for skin hydration, repair and rejuvenation. It combines use of Hyaluronic acid, cytokines, amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants and coenzymes for skin rejuvenation, tone correction, moisturising, microcirculation improvements and cellular repair.

MESOTHERAPY TREATMENTS ARE ALMOST PAINLESS, MINIMAL OR NO DOWNTIME, NO SIDE EFFECTS AND IMMEDIATE RESULTS.

APPLICATION METHODS

Today, there are 3 equally safe and effective methods and depend on individual preferences of the client.

NEEDLE MESOTHERAPY = TRADITIONAL MESOTHERAPY

Uses micro-injections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids cocktails into the mesodermal layer of the skin, as close as possible to the area that needs treatment, using a meso device with one needle. It is an astonishingly effective method in aesthetics as it treats layers of the skin, which are hardly penetrated by other non-invasive treatments.

Traditional Mesotherapy is used to:

  • remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
  • reduce cellulite and stretch marks
  • fade wrinkles and lines
  • tighten loose skin
  • recontour face and body
  • lighten pigmented skin
  • treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss

MICRO-MESOTHERAPY = MICRO-NEEDLING

Is a treatment inspired by the Traditional Mesotherapy.
Micro-injections are replaced by an electronic device of transdermal delivery, which is safe, fast and effective. The device opens more than 1.000 micro channels per second. These cutaneous micro channels or microtrauma create an innate response of the body that helps repair the skin, which leads to the many benefits.

Micro-mesotherapy benefits:

  • stimulates the production of collagen and elastin
  • firms, nourishes and rejuvenates the skin
  • improves the appearance of scars and stretch marks
  • improves skin wrinkles and fine expression lines
  • reduces pores
  • stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss
  • increases penetration of active ingredients

NO NEEDLE MESOTHERAPY = TRANSDERMAL MESOTHERAPY

No needle means no pain or discomfort making this an ideal treatment for clients who are afraid of needles or any of the more invasive skin rejuvenating treatments.
Transdermal Mesotherapy uses the innovative technology of electroporation which is a safe, needle free method that allows to deliver cosmeceuticals and injection grade ingredients into the middle layer of the skin. This method is based on applying electrical currents at low frequency and intensity that increase the permeability of the skin, allowing active ingredients to be transported via small channels and pores through the skin’ surface and deep down into the cellular level.

Transdermal Mesotherapy is used to treat the following skin conditions:

  • anti-aging
  • skin rejuvenation
  • expression lines and wrinkles
  • face firming and toning
  • acne scars
  • hyper-pigmentation
  • rosacea
  • oily skin

MESOTHERAPY was pioneered by French doctor Michel Pistor back in 1952 and it involved a series of small injections into the ‘mesoderm’ – the middle layer of the skin. It was originally used to relieve pain, but its uses evolved in the years since.

Mesotherapy is one of the most effective non-surgical procedures that treats the following skin conditions:

ACNE

Acne is a skin disorder which involves the pilosebaceous units and is characterized by the formation of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pimples), pustules (spots containing pus) and sometimes even nodules and cysts (deep spots), which appear mainly on the face and upper part of the trunk, although they are also localized in glutes and thighs. Acne occurs as a result of several factors: an alteration in the keratinisation of the hair follicle, an overproduction of sebum and the bacterial overgrowth of a micro-organism called propionibacterium acnes, among other causes.

ANTI-AGING
Cutaneous ageing is the deterioration of the skin due to a combination of circumstances (age, exposure to ultraviolet light, smoking, etc.).  It manifests itself by the appearance of wrinkles, discolouration of the skin -either lightening or darkening-, dryness, dilated or broken small blood vessels near the surface of the skin (telangiectasia), cutaneous atrophy, irregular thinning of the skin, elastosis (flaccidity), grooves, age spots and other expressions.
CELLULITIS

The edematose-fibrosclerotic panniculopathy, popularly known as cellulitis, is a disorder that affects the skin and subcutaneous tissues. It consists of the accumulation of adipose tissue, which forms nodules of fat, water and toxins, being located preferably at the level of the lower half of the body (gluteus, hips, thighs). It can occur in isolation or associated with overweight.

EYE AREA

The skin of the area around the eyes is one of the most delicate of the body, which is why it can accumulate several unsightly manifestations such as bags, dark circles and emotional wrinkles. Bags are formed by a loss of tone in the muscle and the skin of the lower eyelid, which produces a sagging and thinning of the skin. The dark circles appear by the anatomical arrangement of the venous sinus of the area surrounding the eye, revealing the accumulation of blood and darkening the area. Its appearance is affected by the lack of iron, the loss of periorbital fat volume and the lack of sleep. Emotional wrinkles are due to internal factors such as age and skin type, and external factors such as sun or cold exposure.

HAIR LOSS
There are several types of alopecia, each one of them caused by different factors. The most frequent is androgenic alopecia, responsible for more than 90% of cases. It is caused by an increase of male hormones -or androgens- action over certain scalp areas that are genetically predisposed to this condition. Androgenic alopecia causes a progressive diminish of the hair follicle activity, which decreases in size until the absolute atrophy of the hair bulb and the consequent hair loss.
HYPER-PIGMENTATION
The pigmentation of the skin, caused by the excess production of melanin, is a defence mechanism to protect itself against the free radicals produced by solar radiation. But there are cases where this pigmentation becomes anarchic. There is excessive production and irregular distribution of the melanin which results in the appearance of hyper-pigmented spots, which are benign but unsightly, such as melasma and lentigo.
CAPPILARIES

Telangiectasias (commonly known as "spider veins") are dilated or broken blood vessels located near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes. They often appear as fine pink or red lines, which temporarily whiten when pressed. "Matted" telangiectasias are clusters of these small-dilated blood vessels that form a pink or red patch on the skin. Individuals who are otherwise healthy can develop this condition, and it is sometimes associated with varicose veins.

LOCALISED FAT

The fat is under the skin, serving as a reserve of energy, producing more than twice as much energy as that released by proteins and carbohydrates. It also acts as insulation against the cold and forms a supporting tissue for many organs, protecting them. When it is localized and accumulated excessively in certain areas of the body it can became unsightly.

STRETCH MARKS & SCARS

Stretch marks, like acne marks or scars, are a pathological condition of the connective tissue of the dermis, characterized by localized excessive fibrosis, response to rupture and / or poor quality of previously existing fibers.

PRE- AND POST- TREATMENT ADVICES

Pre-Treatment Advice

  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising).
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, please contact your GP, they may put you on an anti-viral medication prior to treatment.
  • Be sure to have a meal, including food and drink before your appointment. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.

Post-Treatment Advice

  • Avoid make-up for 24 hrs.
  • Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area.
  • Avoid exercise for min. 24 hours.
  • Avoid extensive sun or heat for min. 72 hours.
  • Avoid consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salts to avoid excess swelling.
  • If you have swelling you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes each hour.
  • Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.
  • Apply Arnica cream to help the bruising and swelling.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AND AFTER MESOTHERAPY TREATMENT?

Treatment time takes between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the area and method of application. The treatment can be slightly uncomfortable in case of needle mesotherapy and micro-needling. With minimal or no downtime – bruising and swelling may occur but should settle within 24 – 48 hours. A course of 6 – 8 sessions are advised every 1 – 2 weeks with maintenance treatments every 1 – 6 months.
