MESOLIFT – face, neck and hands mesotherapy
Mesotherapy is a medical procedure that involves the injection of hialuronic acid, vitamins, remedies or traditional medications into the mesoderm layer of the skin. It is designed to rejuvenate or resurface specific areas and the course of injections given depends on the particular condition being treated.
During the treatment, a special short thin needles (measuring 4-6mm) is used to inject medications under the top layers of skin to remedy a variety of conditions:
Cellulite: The most popular use of mesotherapy is the treatment of cellulite, due to the encouraging results that have been documented. Small amounts of emphysema medication aminophyilline are often used to treat cellulite in combination with isoproternol. Both medicines have been proven to break down fat and so are thought to help eliminate the uneven fatty deposits that the condition creates.
Skin rejuvenation: The so called ‘mesolift’ utilizes mesotherapy injections to deliver nutrients and renewal stimulants to the deeper levels of the skin. The introduction of vitamins (including vitamin D), minerals and amino acids is said to prompt the production of collagen and elastin, as well as stimulating metabolism. The act of delivering nutrients directly to the developing skin is also meant to help eliminate the build up of toxins and improve circulation, supposedly leaving skin looking rested and radiant after treatment.
Toning: Mesotherapy can also be used to tighten sagging skin that has appeared as a result of weight loss or the ageing process.
A typical treatment will last ten to twenty minutes and is generally not painful because of anesthetic ointment used prior to procedure. Some patients report a slight burning sensation that lasts between 15 and 20 minutes after the session finishes.
