What is Mesotherapy?
And is this the future of the ‘Medfacial’ and non-surgical ‘liposuction’?
Mesotherapy is a broad term used to describe the process of delivering active ingredients into the middle layer of the skin or into the fat cells. Mesotherapy is used to treat a large range of conditions, including but not limited to:
- Skin ageing
- Acne scars
- Thin skin
- Pigmentation issues
- Stretch Marks
- Poor texture
- Flat scars
- Stubborn pockets of unwanted fat
The French press coined the term mesotherapy in 1958, popular throughout European countries and South America, mesotherapy treatment is now recognised as the ULTIMATE MEDICAL FACIAL!
I absolutely love this treatment, it treats such a wide variety of conditions all depending on the ‘vitamin cocktail’ used on the day! When I was working in London this was a treatment that nearly all my patients had at some point, and now that I have brought the techniques with me to my clinic in South Africa my patients are really happy and enjoying this holistic meets Medical approach to skin health.
Why do I need active ingredients in the dermal layers of my skin?
To really influence skin physiology positively you need to put the correct ingredients in contact with “living Cells”. This means at the base of the epidermis where cell division takes place, or in the dermis where you have fibroblasts- the factories responsible for tissue formation.
Most popular Mesotherapy treatments:
In this particular treatment injections are administered that contain several types of vitamins, minerals and Homeopathic medicines etc. These are introduced to the mesoderm ( middle layer of fat and tissue beneath the skin.) Fat is melted under the skin by around 1 pound fat per week. This treatment is frequently applied to the arms, waist , hips, back and legs all in one session. This is by far the best alternative to liposuction and in 10 sessions patients can lose 2-6 inches!
Mesoglow – Vitamin Infusions
This is my go to for dull devitalised skins and for patients wanting to lift and tighten their skins. Mesoglow provides the skin with Hyaluronic acid to really plump and hydrate the skin and from there we add to the cocktail whatever the patient needs, we have everything from centella asiatica for scarring and ageing, vitamin C for its wonderful effects on sun damaged skins and glucosomine for the depigmenting properties to name a few!
Mesohair – The Biostimulation of Hair Follicles
Mesohair provides the Dermal Papilla (Food of the hair) with the nutritional elements needed for hair growth. Mesohair is particularly rich in vitamin B which has been shown to prevent hair loss and regulates oil secretions and dandruff. Greying is also reduced by vitamin B.
