Mesotherapy is a treatment modality used to deliver solutions of active ingredients directly into the skin, in order to correct a range of imperfections. Micro – injections or a roller technique may be used, depending on the indication.
Treatment aims at the direct deposition of key active substances such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, antioxidants or different drugs, into the skin or in the subcutaneous tissue, precisely at the place where they are needed. Most of these substances would not be able to reach the deep layers of the skin if they were just applied on the surface, since the skin barrier is impenetrable for big molecules like long chains of hyaluronic acid. Alternatively, when taken by mouth, they are degraded in the GI tract, therefore again they do not reach the skin.
Mesotherapy can be used for the following indications:
- Skin quality treatment, rejuvenation and deep hydration (face, neck, decollete, hands)
- Localized fat – lipolysis
- Hair loss
Treatment is well tolerated, as we take all the necessary measures to minimize any discomfort.There is a mild irritation of the skin for the first 24 hours. Immediately after the skin looks much better.
Usually multiple treatments are needed in order to attain or maintain the therapeutic goal.
Mesotherapy is a very popular treatment for skin quality. Attention should be payed to the products used, as there are so many on the market but very few of them have approval as medical devices that can be injected into the skin.
In our Practice we use only the safest and best quality mesotherapy products, in order to ensure excellent, long- lasting results.
Mesotherapy can be combined with other skin quality treatments such as microdermabration, peelings, fractional CO2 laser. Combination therapies usually attain impressive results in a shorter period of time.
Mesotherapy per se, is the treatment of choice for those demanding an immediate improvement in skin hydration and fine lines, for a refreshed and glowing look!
