What Is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a soothing cocktail of potent vitamins and antioxidants delivered directly into the mesoderm (the middle layer of the skin) via a painless radio-frequency procedure.

When Do We Recommend It?

The procedure can work wonders for anyone from their mid-twenties onwards for a skin rejuvenating treatment. It is from the late twenties that the skin’s metabolic rate starts to slow down and the skin rejuvenates more slowly, allowing dead cells to accumulate. This is the cause of that dreaded dullness in appearance. The hyaluronic acid that forms part of the cocktail is a pure amino acid that returns moisture to the skin.

 

How Does It Work?

Radio-frequency technology transports the molecules straight into the skin and is beneficial for the treatment of cellulite, to promote weight loss, treat ageing and sagging skin, and rejuvenate the face, hands, chest, and neck.

 

When Do We Advise Against It?

Mesotherapy is not performed on pregnant or breastfeeding individuals. Your Specialist will advise against Mesotherapy for those with a history of severe heart disease, arrhythmia or strokes.

 

What Is The Typical Course Of Treatment?

The entire procedure takes just 30 minutes so you could easily have it done during your lunch hour. First, we remove all makeup with a thorough cleansing and then perform a Superficial Peel with alpha-hydroxy acids. This gently removes the uppermost layers of dead skin to improve penetration of the formula and stimulates the skin’s basal layers, so speeding up rejuvenation. The vitamin cocktail is then introduced below the skin in the targeted areas.

 

What Can You / Can’t You Expect From The Treatment?

Recipients have often described it as a gentle massage, and you can expect your skin to feel soft, smooth and hydrated. Slight redness due to the Chemical Peel is normal and should subside within a few hours.

 

What Are The Unwanted Effects / Risks Of The Treatment?

The procedure is safe, and will, at most, result in slight flushing or redness that will disappear within hours.
