Science Behind Mesotherapy Simplified: How It Works
While mesotherapy is not particularly new on the block, a growing interest in the scientific and results-based procedure has resurfaced as many ditch their 11-step facial routines for less time-consuming approaches to skincare while demanding quicker effects.
Unlike traditional procedures and topical products, mesotherapy is a targeted solution that directly addresses specific concerns in a localized area, depending entirely on the unique nature of each client.
With that being said, let’s take a look at what mesotherapy is, exactly – and why it is so popular.
What Is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure involving the injection of various beneficial substances into the mesoderm.
What’s the mesoderm, you ask? The layer of fat and connective tissue underneath your skin. A decadent cocktail of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid, customized accordingly to address your individual skin concerns, allows for active substances to be delivered directly to the target cells. Each individual element of the powerful cocktail plays a specific role in nourishing and revitalizing your aging skin cells.
Mesotherapy boasts the following benefits, including improving blood circulation. It also stimulates collagen, which is responsible for skin elasticity. Lastly, it creates improvements in skin quality through continuous cellular regeneration – which is the body’s natural ability to replace and renew old cells.
Is Mesotherapy Just for My Face?
While mesotherapy is used to treat concerns predominantly related to the face, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, drooping skin, age spots, dullness, and discoloration, the treatment is also highly effective for areas such as the neck, chest, thighs, buttocks, arms, and even, the scalp.
The most common reasons why clients choose mesotherapy is for the following concerns:
- Sagging or double chin
- Fatty eye bags
- Hormonal pigmentation
- Aging, loose skin
- Stretch marks
- Hair thinning
Depending on your specific concern, the cocktail of ingredients will vary, as well as the depth at which the injections are given and the number of shots.
But Mesotherapy Injections… That Sounds Painful!
Mesotherapy is non-surgical, minimally invasive and well-tolerated. However, it’s extremely important to go to a qualified professional who boasts a sterile and hygienic environment and who knows exactly what they are doing.
When delivered correctly, the procedure should be relatively painless (especially if you opt for a numbing cream), and the injections are administered with fine needles, which means there is no downtime, just a bit of skin redness.
