Mesotherapy is a technique which involves microinjections of plant extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals, vitamins and other-based substances into the mesoderm (middle layer) of the skin to promote healing treatment to a specific area of the body. Mesotherapy was invented by the Frenchman by Dr Micheal Pastor in 1958. Later the French National Academy of Medicine officially acknowledged mesotherapy as a medical specialty. In the meantime, mesotherapy became popular in most parts of Europe and South America and, more recently, in the United States and Asian countries.
Mesotherapy aims to enhance and slow down skin aging. This procedure involves injecting small quantities of hyaluronic acids, vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes, and humectants directly into the layer beneath the skin's surface. This helps stimulate fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin while creating a favorable environment for these cells to work their magic. Most Topical creams are limited due to the poor penetrations of the ingredients. While Mesotherapy injections or mesogun (shallow 1-4mm injections) effectively deliver medication directly to areas that need it.
Our practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic on the areas that are to be treated. This, however, depends on your pain tolerance levels. Our Surgeon uses a mesogun to inject the cocktail ingredients into the target area. You will receive a series of injections. The injections are delivered at different depths of around 1 to 4 millimeters into your skin. This again, depends on the skin issue you have. Depending on the skin issue, its intensity, and the effects, you might need several mesotherapy sessions. After the treatment, Dr Reza will guide you on exactly how many sessions per week you might need to get the desired results. At Premium Clinic, we prioritize patient satisfaction. It's important for every individual undergoing mesotherapy to be aware that experiencing itching, bruising, soreness, a burning sensation, and swelling at the injection site is a normal response and indicates that the treatment is effective. We take the time to provide a brief explanation to our patients. Following the procedure, we apply ice packs to the treated area to enhance numbness and reduce post-procedure swelling. Additionally, to alleviate any burning sensation, we apply topical lidocaine one hour before the procedure. Afterwards, we apply loose-fitting clothing for comfort.
A series of 4 to 8 treatments is recommended, one to three weeks apart. The exact number of procedures depends on the condition of your skin and your personal preferences and expectations. You will see an instant enhancement in the appearance of the skin after the first mesotherapy application, and this will continue to improve as the deep tissue structures are reorganized and strengthened.
The results of mesotherapy are typically long-lasting, but the exact duration will vary depending on the individual and the condition being treated. For example, patients who are treating cellulite may need more frequent sessions to maintain their results. According to a 2019 study published in the journal Dermatology and Therapy, the average duration of mesotherapy results is 12-18 months. However, some patients may experience results that last up to 2 years. To prolong the results of mesotherapy, it is important to follow a healthy lifestyle, including eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. It is also important to avoid sun exposure and smoking.
The pain associated with mesotherapy is typically mild and brief. Most patients experience a slight stinging or prickling sensation when the needle is inserted. The pain may be more pronounced in sensitive areas, such as the face and neck. To minimize discomfort, our professionals may use a topical anesthetic cream or ice pack before the procedure. They may also inject the solution slowly and gently. After the procedure, patients may experience some bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection sites. These side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days. In general, mesotherapy is a well-tolerated procedure with a low risk of side effects. However, it is important to note that everyone experiences pain differently. Some patients may find mesotherapy to be more painful than others.
