WHAT IS MESOTHERAPYMesotherapy is a medical specialty that involves the injection of natural extracts, medicines, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and amino-acids directly into the mesoderm (the middle layer of the skin). This rejuvenates the skin and also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which are essential for your skins natural elasticity.
One of the effects of ageing of the skin is a decrease in blood circulation and this results in the reduction of oxygen and nutrients and your body’s ability to eliminate toxins. Mesotherapy slows this process and helps your skin to look more nourished, radiant and, above all, firmer.
Although mesotherapy is used to treat a broad spectrum of injuries, illnesses and medical conditions such as arthritis, migraines, asthma, sports injuries and chronic pain, it is also employed to treat cosmetic conditions including acne, cellulite, stretch marks, scars, hair loss, wrinkles and body contouring by fat reduction. WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE TREATMENT?
Mesotherapy is administered by a using a very fine needle, immediately under the surface of the skin at the area requiring treatment. IS IT PAINFUL?
Treatment is not painful but to prevent any discomfort, prior to treatment we apply an anaesthetic cream.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatment time varies and may be up to 30 minutes.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
Mesotherapy has almost no side-affects and you can expect to return to daily activities immediately. In some cases patients may experience slight swelling which will settle within 24 hours or some small bruising which will quickly fade.
CAN I HAVE MESOTHERAPY AT THE SAME TIME AS OTHER ANTI-AGEING TREATMENTS?
Yes, mesotherapy can be used alongside other treatments or as a substitute to them. Even though it is an excellent anti-ageing therapy in its own right it is also a fine compliment to skin-peels, botox and fillers.
HOW SAFE IS MESOTHERAPY?
Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, mesotherapy is now widely used all over the world and is considered an extremely safe treatment.
