“Facial Mesotherapy effectively treats skin aging problems and it is suitable for both men and women”, Dr. Konstantina Mamali states. “Exposure to sunlight, fatigue and everyday life stress, leave their mark on the skin. Facial Mesotherapy is the solution to those aging skin marks and helps renew and restore the natural skin radiance and elasticity.”
What is it Facial Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy was first developed in 1952 from a French practitioner, called Dr. Michel Pistor, and it is a therapeutic technique of multiple injections, in which little quantities of drugs and other therapeutic agents are injected under the skin. Mesotherapy is one of the most modern and effective treatments, as it targets exactly the part of skin that need to be repaired and it offers a natural result.
The application of Facial Mesotherapy is indicated in cases of dehydration and relaxation of the skin, loss of firmness, as well as after prolonged exposure to the sunlight (skin photoaging).
During Mesotherapy, a small amount of mesotherapy solution is applied on the skin surface, and with injections or with micro needling the solution can reach deeper layers of skin. One of the advantages of Mesotherapy is that it rejuvenates skin with the use of natural ingredients, vitamins and hyaluronic acid, and at the same time the skin itself produces collagen and hyaluronic acid because of the tiny injuries that occur to the skin.
Areas Of Application
According to Dermatologist – Venereologist Dr. Amalia Tsiatoura, both the Mesotherapy with vitamins and/or hyaluronic acid, and the Autologous Mesotherapy can be applied on:
- Face – Eyes
Skin loosening of the face and neck is an aesthetic problem that afflicts both men and women, at any age. Skin relaxation is mainly caused by the loss of collagen and elastin fibers, substances that are necessary for a firm and youthful skin. Skin relaxation is also caused by other exogenous factors, such as smoking, sunlight, and frequent weight fluctuations. Sometimes, genetic background can lead to skin aging and can start at a young age, even from 25 years. As collagen and elastin fibers decrease, skin relaxation, fine lines and wrinkles appear.
Skin aging is an inevitable process. Aged skin appears to be rough and dehydrated, and wrinkles appear. Although there are several ways to avoid skin aging, such as heathy diet, use of sunscreen, consumption of fruits and vegetables and various cosmetic dermatology treatments, yet aging cannot be prevented, but only delayed. Facial Mesotherapy is the ideal treatment for the aforementioned problems. At the same time, when combined with other treatments performed in Cosmetic Derma Medicine, such as Facial Microdermabrasion, Ultrasound – RF, Hyaluronic Acid and Neurotoxin Treatment, contribute to the treatment of skin relaxation and anti-aging.
How is it applied
Depending on the application method, Facial Mesotherapy can be either injectable or non-injectable. During injectable mesotherapy, the solution is injected in the selected part of skin with the use of fine lines. In non-injectable mesotherapy no needles are used, and the solution is penetrated into the skin with the help of tiny channels created on the skin surface with a special micro-needling device, also known as Dermapen Mesotherapy.
In Cosmetic Derma Medicine, Facial Mesotherapy can be applied in both ways. Either by injecting the solution under the skin with very thin insulin syringe needles, or by using a special micro needling device called Dermapen, during which the Mesotherapy solutions reach the required depth through the tiny channels.

The results of Facial Mesotherapy are immediately shown, after the very first session, by improving the texture and appearance of the skin.

After the first 3 months, it is suggested to repeat the treatment every 2-6 months, depending on the personal needs of each patient.
With the Vitamins Mesotherapy skin is enriched with a solution of nutrients rich is vitamins, coenzymes, minerals and amino acids, which contribute to anti-aging. Mesotherapy with Hyaluronic Acid aims to skin hydration and tightening. It also nourishes and repairs damaged skin cells, and restores skin’s youthfulness and firmness.
The epidermal layer is the outer part of the skin and the barrier that separates our body from any harmful substances coming from the environment. It is in direct contact with the external environment and for this reason the skin is extremely vulnerable to many infections. The dermis is the intermediate tissue, which is responsible for the texture, density and thickness of the skin. Beneath, lays the subcutaneous tissue, the fatty tissue that connects the skin to the underlying tissues.
The substances contained in the Facial Mesotherapy solution aim at the regeneration, hydration, tightening and smoothing of the skin. Specifically, the Mesotherapy solution consists of the following substances:
It offers antioxidant protection. It also promotes melanin production and helps skin hydration.
Protects the cell membrane and enhances the blood microcirculation of the skin.
