Mesotherapy

Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used in Europe and elsewhere to treat various medical conditions. This medical specialty targets problem areas with microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Tiny "medicinal bullets" are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) that are highly specific to the condition being treated. It can be used to treat aging skin and redundant (sagging) skin, rejuvenate the hands and neck, eliminate cellulite and promote weight loss.

Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesotherapy p​rocess delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. As your skin ages, circulation decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hinders your body's ability to flush out toxins. This is what drives premature ageing and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.

After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Mesotherapy can be used a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-ageing regimens, including botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts.

Active ingredients:

Cytokines - specifically chosen, act as intercellular mediators that increase the cellular interchange necessary for maintaining firm, healthy looking skin. Cytokines also provide a localised increase in blood flow that helps break down cellulite.
Coenzymes - used to restore energy of skin cells in a natural way. As antioxidants they help to repair dry and aged skin and nourish the deeper layers of skin. They will also combat fine lines, reduce puffiness and brighten skin tone.

Vitamins, minerals and antioxidants combine vitamins A through E, known for their rejuvenating action on the skin. They help to stimulate new collagen production and protect against ageing factors and environmental damage. On the surface, minerals and antioxidants nourish and moisturise new skin.
Amino acids make skin appear smoother. In addition they improve skin tone, reduce fine lines and minimise the appearance of sun damage.
Hyaluronic acid - helping to keep skin moisturised.

Are there any side effects?

​A common side effect of Mesotherapy is bruising, which generally resolves over one week. To speed up the healing process, we recommend that the homeopathic supplement arnica be either taken orally or applied topically on a daily basis. Patients may experience temporary soreness. This will subside within 24-48 hours.

Are there any restrictions?

Restrictions vary, depending on the condition being treated. We discuss these with each patient before treatments commence. In general, patients are advised not to wear makeup for at least 4 hours after facial treatments, not to take hot showers for at least 6 to 8 hours. We recommend that patients eat a high-protein meal, and avoid caffeine or other stimulants before treatment.
