Mesotherapy is one such innovation that is widely used by
cosmetologists, dermatologists and beauty experts across the world to keep skin youthful and beautiful.
A minimally invasive procedure that can be used to yield a variety of results, mesotherapy was pioneered in France by Dr Michel Pistor over 50 years back. Originating from the Greek word ‘mesos’ which means middle, mesotherapy is a technique that works through microneedling or microinjections delivered in the ‘middle’ or subcutaneous layer of the skin. In fact there is a new technique called electroporation or non needle meso wherein we can penetrate the actives to deeper skin layers without injections.
The usage of mesotherapy extends to several purposes as varied as fat reduction, hair growth and scalp rejuvenation, besides anti-ageing.
The basis of the therapy remains the same – delivering the necessary drugs and inputs that may include vitamins, nutrients, Botox, fillers or other ingredients into the middle layer of the skin to boost regeneration and skin tightening. You can say that tiny bullets of medicines are delivered into the mesoderm to treat a particular condition.
At SkinAlive, we often use mesotherapy as an anti-ageing procedure. It is, in fact, a very safe alternative to surgical procedures.
Antiageing Mesotherapy – Skin ages because with years it loses certain crucial elements like hyaluronic acid, elastin, collagen from its layers. Through mesotherapy, we try to replenish these reserves and add a rich and powerful dose of nutrients like vitamins to the skin to help it regain its lost glory.
In this technique a special caviar cocktail is penetrated into the skin with different meso techniques as per the skin type with active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinols and peptides which help boost the collagen and elastin. It helps in skin rejuvenation, softening fine lines and wrinkles and restore the youthful appearance. After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer.
Mesotherapy is also effective in toning and tightening sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms and hands to make you appear younger and fitter. Sometimes a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, amino acids is administered into the skin to nourish the skin, promote regeneration and stimulate metabolism. The procedure takes just 30 minutes and needs no downtime. In fact, a person can get the procedure done during lunch time and return to work immediately.
