The Ultimate Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy is a firmly established form of treatment dating back to the 1950s, and can be described as targeted, intense nutrition for the skin. At Stem Cell Clinics, we administer multiple micro injections directly into the skin cells in the mesoderm (middle layer), to restore the health of the cells and promote skin rejuvenation. The substances are designed to replenish the skin’s naturally-occurring beneficial ingredients, to rehydrate, repair, firm, tone and restructure. The treatment can also be used to target specific areas of fat reduction such as cellulite, by stimulating the metabolism and encouraging fat breakdown.
Using mesotherapy, Stem Cell Clinics aim to help our patients restore their skin’s natural elasticity, shape and glow. We now also offer the ultimate mesotherapy whereby PRP is used as an agent, which is administered using multiple micro injections, into the dermis layer of the skin. The PRP is enriched further through the addition of hyaluronic acid and other skin active ingredients, such as vitamin C serums. The patient then receives all the benefits of mesotherapy, but with the added impact of the body’s natural healing cells working in very targeted areas of the skin.
Areas treated with mesotherapy
Most common problem areas we treat using mesotherapy, are tired and dull skin on the face, neck, décolletage and hands, which require intense treatment to rejuvenate them. Excess fat on jowls/chin, cellulite on legs and buttocks, and sagging fat on the abdomen and ‘bingo-wings’ are areas typically targeted by the fat reduction element of mesotherapy.
Less common, but effective uses of mesotherapy include treating thinning hair, reducing the appearance of stretch marks and restoring the skin’s appearance after sun damage.
What is involved in mesotherapy treatment?
Mesotherapy involves the use of micro-injections of active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, amino acids and vitamins, which are delivered directly into the skin cells or fat layers, depending on the area being targeted. We can also inject PRP during the mesotherapy treatment, depending on the result required.
A very fine needle is placed immediately beneath the surface of the skin into the problematic area/s, where drops of the concentrated active ingredients are then placed. Following the application of a topical anaesthetic, our patient feels just a small pricking sensation, which is normally tolerated well. The treatment is administered over a course of injections, and we normally recommend approximately 6 treatments, each around 4 weeks apart, to achieve maximum benefit and effect.
What are the side-effects?
We advise patients that there is a risk of some bruising and redness occurring immediately after the mesotherapy treatment, although both disappear within a short period of time. The ingredients used are all naturally found within the skin, therefore there is no significant risk of an adverse reaction to them. We take steps in our patient consultation to establish any allergies to these ingredients, to mitigate any such risk.
Infection is the only other real risk of this treatment, but our meticulous approach to hygiene and the prevention of infection at Stem Cell Clinics, means that this is kept to the absolute minimum. Were any infection to occur, this could be managed through use of antibiotics.
