What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy helps nutrients, antioxidants and/or other chosen chemicals get to the right layer of skin, which they would otherwise not be able to penetrate because of the skin’s natural barrier. You can choose from several areas, such as the facial skin or even places with cellulite on the body. The solution used is packed with vitamins and ingredients that could help target your specific skin concern. Mesotherapy can help address: aging skin, textural skin issues, and it even helps reduce fat and cellulite on the body, especially melting the fat in a “double chin,” the area underneath the chin and jowls in which it works the same as Kybella but at a much more reasonable cost.
What’s injected will rely on what’s being treated. For example, if you’re wanting to get rid of fat in a particular area, you’ll use a lipotropic (something that acts as a catalyst to break down fat). Should you wish to rejuvenate your skin in general, we’ll use our special elixir. This solution includes growth factors, peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid and more.
As a topical anesthetic is applied beforehand, the treatment is painless and shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes. We can also use our Pronox for additional anesthesia. You will require a number of treatments for best results, usually 3-4. The downtime depends on what condition you’re treating and the intensity. For general rejuvenation, there’s actually no downtime at all. You can go straight back to work and will experience only a little temporary dryness or a feeling of ‘tightness’ by day two. If you’re reducing fat, you’ll probably experience mild redness and swelling. It resolves within three days, and bruising may be visible if your treatment was a very intensive one.
