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.
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 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:
In general, there are no serious contraindications associated with facial mesotherapy. However, the treatment should be avoided by people who take anticoagulants, as bruising may occur during treatment.
Also, Facial Mesotherapy is not ideal for people who have severe skin infections, herpes infection or allergies. As a precaution, women who are pregnant should wait until the end of the pregnancy.
