Following a good skincare routine is not always enough to ensure beautiful and clear skin, especially the one you dream of having, right?
Well, no worries. As is recently noticeable, skin needling treatments are becoming more and more popular for valid reasons, such as immediate results, no downtime, and the lovely feeling of skin rejuvenation.
Micro-needling, microdermabrasion, and mesotherapy are just a few skin-needling treatments. However, our focus today will be on mesotherapy.
What Is Mesotherapy?
The word mesotherapy is derived from Latin, which means medium treatment. It is an aesthetic procedure that rejuvenates and tightens the skin while also removing excess fat. How exactly?
It works by injecting amino acids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts into the middle layer of the skin using fine needles.
Mesotherapy is legally proper for all healthy adults over the age of 18. However, some people might have circumstances in which mesotherapy cannot be used or have characteristics that prohibit it from being used. This can be decided by a specialist depending on each person's medical history, age, skin type, and more.
It is mainly considered a facial treatment that tightens loose skin, lightens pigmented areas, and reduces wrinkles. But it is also widely used to remove fat in the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face. As well as reduce cellulite, recontour the body, and treat hair loss.
Using mesotherapy for the face is also known as a beauty booster, which means injecting the skin with material that gives it a healthier and plumper glow.
With that in mind, you might wonder. What makes the beauty booster treatment any different from botox?
Well, beauty boosters, like regular fillers, are produced with hyaluronic acid. The main distinction is that a beauty booster is intended to moisturize rather than restore volume. It can help rejuvenate the skin because it is formulated with potent moisturizing components found naturally in the body and are used to revitalize dry skin, reduce fine lines, and increase skin suppleness.
Nonetheless, one of the mesotherapy’s benefits is getting rid of excess fat. It's considered an alternative treatment option to liposuction, which is used to remove fat from the legs, waist, arm, and abdomen.
Mesotherapy fat reducer works best when combined with regular exercise and following a healthy diet.
Mesotherapy For Hair
As for hair loss problems, then mesotherapy can work wonders. It's considered one of the best hair regrowth treatments. It uses needles to transport powerful chemicals to the mesoderm, supplying active nutrients directly to the hair follicle and promoting scalp rejuvenation and hair regrowth. The transdermal application of mesotherapy has established a clear way to address the base of the hair problem by directly managing the hair follicles in your skin.
In comparison to painful surgical solutions for baldness, hair mesotherapy is a cutting-edge alternative that guarantees a painless and safe experience that immediately offers great benefits, such as:
-Enhancing scalp immunity.
-Reducing scalp inflammation.
-Simulating hair follicles.
-Restoring normal PH levels.
-Discharging lymphatic toxin.
For Better Results
There are no actual precautions you should follow before a mesotherapy session because it's a treatment that works on any type of skin, even irritated ones.
However, it's always recommended to consult your doctor or dermatologist beforehand to discuss your options and ensure that your skin condition allows you to undergo the procedure.
In general, for one week before the operation, you should avoid aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines. This is because these medications might increase your chances of bleeding and bruising during mesotherapy.
After the procedure, it is best not to apply make-up on the same day to keep the active components in touch with your skin as long as possible. Sun exposure also must be avoided for the first 15 days following the treatment.
A course of three treatments every three or four weeks is advised for best results. Also, repeating it 2-3 times a year will produce long-term results.
Even though the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has not approved mesotherapy as a practice, several of the substances used in the treatment have FDA permission. As a result, it is a risk-free treatment.
It should be noted, however, that most practitioners do not follow standard formulae in performing the procedure. That means you may receive totally different treatments from one doctor to another. That's why it is highly recommended that all sessions be completed under the supervision of a single expert dermatologist.
Mesotherapy Before And After
As mentioned before, the skin problems that mesotherapy can fix are skin aging, wrinkles, excess fat, dehydration of the skin, skin tone or elasticity loss, and hair loss.
Before talking about the results, you should know that the session takes up from 30 to 45 minutes, and it's painless and doesn't require any anesthesia. However, it's up to your doctor to decide, according to your request and health condition.
After the treatment, there is no downtime and no need to rest. The mesotherapy benefits will start to appear right after the procedure.
The nutrients will have a noticeable effect, and the skin will become more radiant. You might notice minor redness and bruises, which call for no worries because they usually disappear after 30 minutes of the procedure.
The first session immediately improves the skin's brightness and moisture. The skin's density and tone will progressively improve. Thus, anti-aging mesotherapy provides for a noticeable increase in skin quality throughout the course of the sessions.
In just a few days, you'll start to experience the magic that mesotherapy does, such as:
-Granting a healthy and younger-looking skin.
-Getting rid of annoying wrinkles.
-Reducing swelling, redness, and bruises.
-Preventing skin sagging.
However, the desired results may differ based on the person's health and skin conditions.
The Bottom Line
Because it offers immediate results with minimal side effects, mesotherapy is a promising treatment that helps you showcase the best version of yourself and pave the way for you to start taking care of your skin as it deserves. Just don’t forget, no matter what dermal therapy you do, choose only the professionals.
