For years mesotherapy has been used in medicine to treat various skin diseases consisting in direct injection of curative substances into affected areas of the skin. Mesotherapy is a non-surgical method used in skin regeneration, improvement of skin appearance, its rejuvenation, cellulite and stretch marks treatment and alopecia treatment and prophylaxis.
Thanks to intradermal injections of active substances, microcirculation in subcutaneous tissue is improved and metabolism of fatty tissues (lipolysis) is boosted. Popularity of this method is due to its instantly visible revitalizing effects, which affect patients well-being, mood and satisfaction.
- sagging skin
- wrinkle prevention
- hair loss prevention
- cellulite ( e.g. abdomen, buttocks)
- stretch marks
- non-surgical and natural method
- solution applied causes blockage in transmission of cellular fat ingestion signals, improves circulation and energy usage
- long lasting results – it corrects wrinkles, improves hair condition, restores skin smoothness, quickly improves skin condition and appearance. This method is well-known and has been used in Europe for many years.
Frequency of treatments:
Mesotherapy is effective only when it is performed in series. Initially, one procedure every 10-14 days for two months, afterwards one procedure every month in order to sustain achieved effects. It is recommended to undergo the treatment in winter or early spring since the sun can cause skin discoloration in the area of injection.
Preparation for mesotherapy:
- one week before the procedure it is helpful to apply vitamin K preparation e.g. Auriderm XO (it seals endothelium of blood vessels, prevents internal bleeding and it works as anti – inflammatory and analgesic medicine).
- two weeks before the procedure a patient should stop taking aspirin
- directly before the procedure (1-2 hours) a topical anesthetic can be applied to the surface of the skin to numb it ( e.g. EMLA). It should be discussed individually with the doctor during the consultation.
Course of treatment:
The doctor, individually according to the patient’s needs, selects a set of active substances. Injections are performed with a thin needle or an automatic pistol with depth regulation of the injections. Injections are performed every 0,5 – 1,5 centimetre. Therefore, the marks on the skin resemble a chequered pattern, which quickly disappear. Injection pricks are almost painless – the needle reaches only the fatty tissue. If a patient is more susceptible to pain, a topical anesthetic e.g. EMLA can be applied to the surface of the skin to numb it.
Contraindications for mesotherapy:
- pregnancy, breastfeeding
- diabetes (labile)
- skin inflammation, herpes
- poor skin tolerance to injections (couperose skin, risk of fibrosis)
- taking anticoagulant pharmaceuticals
Mesotherapy for skin rejuvenation:
Mesotherapy is used prophylactically to reduce visible signs of skin aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin and thinning of the skin. This method can be combined with other aesthetic medicine treatments. Adequate mesotherapy coctails are applied to the skin of the face, neck and neckline. A mixture of many revitalizing and regenerating substances (such as hyaluronic acid, organic silicon dioxide, multivitamin complexes which stimulate cellular metabolism, promote collagen and elastin production) improves skin condition. After a series of mesotherapy treatments the skin looks much better, small wrinkles disappear completely and deeper ones become shallow. Skin tenderness and firmness improvement is also visible.
Frequency of procedures:
- intensive phase of treatment: one treatment every two weeks for two months
- care and maintenance phase: one treatment every 1-3 months
Mesotherapy for cellulite treatment:
Mesotherapy is an extremely valuable method in eliminating cellulite. As a result of the procedure bood flow is boosted, the process of skin fibrosis in connective tissue is limited and fatty tissue deposits are reduced. Consequently, the skin is smoothed out and cellulite reduced. The injections contain caffeine which stimulates skin microcirculation and induces fat release from the cells. Caffeine can be enhanced with artichoke, yellow sweet clover and rutin extract which activates the metabolism of fatty tissue. The mixture can be also enriched with organic silicon dioxide which regenerates connective tissue and collagen fibres.
Frequency of procedures:
- intensive phase – one procedure every 10-14 days for a month
- care and maintenance phase – one procedure a month for 3 months
- reminding procedure– every 6 months
Mesotherapy for hairloss treatment:
The most frequent indications for mesotherapy are hair disorders in which hair loss or weakening of hair structure is observed. By applying mineral preparations, vitamins and anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals to the scalp we can considerably improve hair nutrition, stop the hair loss and even stimulate the hair to grow out again. Alopecia treatment consists in injecting hair nutritional substances such as dexpanthenol, minoxidil, oligo elements, organic silicon dioxide, vitamins or anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals, which cause hair structure regeneration.
- hair loss as a result of poor nutrition and blood circulation or hormonal changes during pregnancy or lactation
- androgenetic alopecia
- alopecia areata
- weak or constantly demanding nutrition hair
Frequency of procedures:
- impact phase: one procedure every 10-14 days for 2 months
- care and maintaining phase: one procedure every month for 3-6 months
