Stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin
Mesotherapy – a cocktail of drug substances that are injected subcutaneously in minimal doses to restore the structure of young skin. The dosage should be extremely well suited and tailored to the patient’s skin. The effect is fresh skin, restoring vitality and smoothing of wrinkles.
The procedure is suitable for dehydrated skin. In mesotherapy, collagen and elastin synthesis is stimulated, and there is antioxidant action against free radicals that cause aging.
The term mesotherapy comes from Greek: “mesos” – middle and therapeia – therapy and means that solutions of medicinal or homeopathic remedies, plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, amino acids are injected into the middle layer of the skin. This is an invasive procedure that is used as an anti-aging therapy to treat hair loss as well as in the pre-hair transplant preparation period. It is also used to remove cellulite and stretch marks to shape the contours of the body.
Recognized as a medical specialty in 1987 by the French Medical Academy, the mesotherapy procedure has been introduced into medicine since the 1950s. Today, it has a wide variety of uses, both for treating certain diseases and for restoring the freshness of the skin when it is relaxed, dehydrated or withered in the area of the face, neck, décolleté and back of the palms.
The solution is injected gently through the main lines of the face where wrinkles and wrinkles appear – from the nose toward the chin, under the eyes, the forehead, the lateral oval of the face and then at even distances on the cheeks and cheekbones.
The mesotherapy procedure is completely safe. Temporary side effects – slight bruising on the skin from pricking, redness, itching or burning on the treated site are possible, but even when this happens discomfort disappears very quickly, usually within a day.
The technology of performing with a special gun completely eliminates the risk of contamination or infection. In some clinics, manual injection is still preferred because it does not lose part of the material. Manufacturers of mesotherapy thereafter produce more universal formulations to make their products more massive.
Nevertheless, if the condition of the skin is not properly assessed, even many quality products can be compromised.
If patients rely only on mesotherapy without having good skin care, the expected “young skin” effect is unlikely to be achieved by this procedure alone. In any case, the skin will become fresher, stiffer and elastic.
But one should never overlook two important factors – informed care for fresh skin and carrying out the procedure with proven medical and qualification specialists.
Mesotherapy can be used as an adjunct or as an alternative to other rejuvenating procedures such as botox, chemical peeling, facelifting.
