What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapie or Mesotherapie is an almost painless injection of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and medications placed into the mesoderm (“meso” means middle and “derm” means skin). The key to this procedure is that a doctor injects micro-doses of medication into the local problem area using a tiny needle specially manufactured for this procedure. The mesotherapie method of delivery ensures that active components penetrate deep into the skin, which does not happen when topical creams are applied. Once in the mesoderm, vitamins and minerals exploit the skin’s natural qualities and get absorbed mostly in the area where they were injected, thereby ensuring focused treatment of the targeted zone. This also constitutes the key difference between mesotherapie and regular injections. Regular injections spread medicine to the whole body.
Mesotherapy works for:
- Wrinkles elimination
- Cellulite reduction
- Local fat deposits and obesity
- Under eye puffiness reduction
- Chin Fat reduction and contour remodeling
- Face and Neck Skin rejuvenation Meso-lift (non-surgical facelift)
- Hair re-growth and strengthening
How did Mesotherapy begin?
Mesotherapy/Mesotherapie began in Europe almost a half of a century ago. Dr. Michel Pistor, a French internist, pioneered this methodology in the 1950’s. Dr. Pistor discovered that injecting a painkiller in the problem area just under the surface of the skin was considerably more effective than the traditional approach (a hard of hearing patient regained his hearing unexpectedly). Intrigued by such a positive outcome, Dr. Pistor described the methodology in great detail and mesotherapy was born. In 1987, the French Academy of Medicine officially recognized mesotherapy as one of the areas of traditional medicine. Mesotherapy is now offered as a regular course in French medical schools. A few years ago mesotherapie began to draw attention from the medical aesthetics community. After conducting numerous studies, European doctors developed a list of correct substances and injection protocols for their mesotherapy application. Meso-therapy is now becoming popular in the U.S.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effect is temporary swelling and redness that lasts less than 30 minutes and mild bruising.
How many treatments are necessary?
The treatment includes 8 to 10 sessions. First 4 sessions are 1 week apart and subsequent sessions are 2 weeks apart.
How long will effect last? Is maintenance therapy needed?
Depending on the area treated and severity of the condition result will last from 6 months to many years.
In more severe cases we recommend 1 session every 3 months to maintain the results.
In lighter cases maintenance therapy is not needed or 1 session can be done when the patient thinks they started losing the effect of therapy.
We had patients returning for 1 session in 1 to 2 years, patients that do not need maintenance at all and patients who do it every 3 months.
