Mesotherapy - Anti-Aging

Treatment overview

Mesotherapy is a treatment for various skin diseases, which involves injecting small doses of treatment substances directly into target areas. Mesotherapy allows reversal or hindering of many unfavourable changes.

Years-long exposure to harmful environmental influences, stress, smoking of tobaccos, alcohol and sun radiation results in unfavourable changes in the skin. Mesotherapy allows reversal or slowing down of many unfavourable changes and constitutes a valuable component of anti-aging medicine.

Treatments may only be performed by a doctor. Next to the impact of the preparations, skin puncture itself is also important (from several dozen to several hundred of those are performed) because of:

  • Improved skin cell metabolism;
  • Stimulation of fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin;
  • Creation of new blood vessels;
  • Improved micro-circulation;
  • Stimulation of skin regeneration – replacement with new cells;
  • Hindered creation of harmful free radicals;
  • Proper skin nutrition.


All these aspects underlie the advantage of injection based mesotherapy over so-called needleless mesotherapy.

Preparations injected into the skin constitute mixtures of medicines adapted to the given clinical problem. Usually, we apply a mixture of vitamins, amino acids, organic silica, microelements, hyaluronic acid and vegetable extracts. Hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen fibres and attracts water, thanks to which the skin is optimally hydrated. Thanks to better vascularisation, the skin receives better supplies of oxygen, is brighter and healthier.

Is this a painful treatment?

Injections are made using a syringe with a very thin needle, at the spacing of 0.5-1.5 cm. After the treatment, there remain marks on the skin in the form of spots or a grid – depending on the technique of the treatment. The marks disappear within a time dependent on the administered medicine – from 6 to 72 hours.

The injections are not very painful. If the patient has a low pain sensitivity threshold, anaesthetisation with a special cream may be applied. The needle may puncture a blood vessel, in which case a minor bruise will develop. Massage is performed after the treatment, which allows even distribution of the ingredients injected into the skin. The medicines remain active for even a month after the treatment.

When does the effect appear and how long does it last?

  • Instant results – increased elasticity, firmness and brightening of the skin;
  • Long-term results – restored smoothness and density of the skin.


Therapy schedule

Stage 1

Intensive therapy:

1 treatment at the intervals of 2-6 months

Stage 2

Skin regeneration:

1 treatment at the intervals of 2-6 months

Stage 3

Maintaining of treatment effects:

1 treatment at the intervals of 2-6 months


Skin injections may be performed at any time of the year, but preferably in autumn, winter or early spring, because sunlight may cause discolouration at the place of injections.

Post-treatment recommendations

  • Basic care;
  • Avoiding the sunshine, application of sun protection filters;
  • Skin hydration.


Contraindications and side effects

Contraindications

  • Allergy, hypersensitivity to the ingredients of the medicine;
  • Pregnancy, breastfeeding;
  • Inflammations of the skin, herpes;
  • Poor treatment toleration (skin with dilated capillaries, risk of fibroses);
  • Neoplastic diseases;
  • Use of anticoagulants (aspirin).


Side effects:

  • Very rare allergic reactions which manifest by erythema and disappear spontaneously after a few minutes or hours;
  • Bruising, haematomas – the risk of abnormalities increases in case of use of anticoagulants (e.g. aspirin) right before the treatment.


In case of a tendency to develop haematomas, you should reserve 2-3 days to let your skin recover – sometimes this requires absence from work or performance of the treatment just before the weekend.

Indications

  • Skin flabbiness,
  • Anti-aging prevention – against aging and wrinkles.
