- Mesotherapy -
Mesotherapy is a series of multiple intradermal injections of very small quantities of hyaluronic acid and/or vitamins, minerals or other active ingredients using a very fine needle directly into and around the areas to be treated. In anti-ageing for example, the product is injected along wrinkle lines over the face, neck, and chest area and back of the hands. Anti-ageing mesotherapy can be carried out either manually using a syringe and small needle or with a mesotherapy gun. This procedure may be applied to all skin types for antiaging treatments or to slow the onset of fine lines and wrinkle.
Mesotherapy is a safe technique. Mesotherapy Solution is placed directly into the target area thus minimizing side effects, allergies and drug interaction. Mesotherapy also is an effective alternative for the treatment of cellulite, localized fat deposits, and alopecia and face/neck rejuvenation. Unlike surgery, Mesotherapy is virtually painless, requires no postoperative recovery time, requires no heavy bandages or girdles, and no anesthesia is necessary. While many surgical procedures require one to two weeks of recovery, patients undergoing Mesotherapy have no interruptions to their daily life, while obtaining natural cosmetics rejuvenation.
Treatment sessions and duration:
Mesotherapy treatments are typically given once per week. As improvement is seen, the treatments may be given less frequently, such as once every two weeks or once per month. The wide use of Mesotherapy, often by unqualified personnel, may be responsible for systemic and local side-effects, very often due to incorrect use of drugs and to errors in procedure. Above all this alternative medical process has been associated with the development of atypical mycobacterium infection, due to lack of aseptic measures.
