Mesotherapy is a miracle remedy for some of the most stubborn and inhibiting cosmetic concerns around. Pesky cellulite, uneven
fatty deposits, even wrinkles, stretch marks and even acne scarring can all be vastly improved using meso technology. This involves infusing the blood with a special concoction of nutrients and treating the skin problem from within.
Traditional mesotherapy is well renowned for its weight loss benefits. It involves injecting quantities of essential vitamins, pharmaceuticals, minerals and other natural extracts directly into the skin, and providing the body with everything it needs to improve circulation and break down the lipid fat building in the bloodstream. These are what is responsible for causing those unsightly lumps and bumps.
Alternatively, Mesotherapy can be administered using electrical pulses, driving the special solution deep into the dermis of the skin. This is a needle-free alternative to transdermal delivery, using electro-osmosis to provide nutrition to the cells layer by layer. Say goodbye to muscle pain, dryness, cellulite and pigmentation - they are no match for mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy is a cosmetic technique that targets the connective tissue in the 'mesoderm layer'. The mesoderm layer, ('meso', meaning 'middle' in Greek) sits between the endoderm and the surface layer known as the ectoderm, and is largely responsible for the skin's plumpness, suppleness and appearance. By infusing the mesoderm with lots of healthy vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants, practitioners are able to stimulate cell repair and make a miraculous impact on the way the skin both looks and feels.
Mesotherapy was previously used in medicine for increasing blood circulation, and often was given to those suffering with vascular disease or sporting injury. Noting its effectiveness, it was later picked up by cosmetologists for it's incredible aesthetic abilities.
Traditional mesotherapy works by using microneedles to inject a specially-made composition of nutrients directly into the skin, triggering a boost in cell activity. Pending the composition used, meso treatment can target fat cells, improve the production of collagen and elastin; kickstart your metabolism or even increase hair growth. The beauty of meso treatment, however, is that there is no standard formula. Each composition is specially formulated to target your particular problem areas, and therefore it is a truly tailor-made, miracle treatment.
Mesotherapy can also be administered using electrical pulses. This instead involves applying the composition to the face in the form of a serum, then gently driving it down into the skin with electrical pulse waves.
Sometimes referred to as 'lipodissolve' due to its ability to blitz lipid fat, mesotherapy is something of an 'all-round' wonder treatment. Whilst it is a minimally invasive alternative to fat removal, localised weight loss and anti-ageing, mesotherapy can also combat a whole host of other complaints. Not only does it target cellulite and fatty tissue, mesotherapy will actively work to contour and tighten the skin; improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage; deliver nutrients to the hair follicles, improve skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and even improve the look of stretch marks and acne scarring. Treated skin will even appear firmer, more toned and more hydrated with a visibly luminous finish.
Mesotherapy costs begin at £350 per session, and while visible differences can be made after only one session, we would recommend investing in a course of treatments for optimum results. Sessions required will depend on your desired outcome, and we would propose a minimum of 2 sessions for cellulite reduction, 6 for skin rejuvenation and 7 for hair follicle stimulation.
Mesotherapy is one of the longer lasting, non-invasive treatments offered at Harley Street Skin. Outcomes will of course be impacted by your lifestyle moving forward - with results best maintained when paired with regular exercise and nutrition - but you can expect to wear the results of mesotherapy for up to a year and a half. Your skin will return to its default, pre-treatment state within 12-18 months of mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy typically takes between 30-60 minutes to complete. As there is no sedation required, mesotherapy treatments are just as straightforward as popping into the clinic for something small such as facial or a massage.
It should be noted that if opting for traditional needle mesotherapy over the electro-method, patients do have the option to prepare the injection sites with a numbing agent beforehand. This, however, will likely extend your treatment by an additional 30-60 minutes so the anaesthetic has time to take effect.
Solutions that are used in mesotherapy are bespoke, and will endeavour to treat your particular problem areas. This means that side effects may vary from patient to patient, although are always minimal. The body finds the solution administered during mesotherapy very easy to absorb, and as a result, it is no more traumatic to the body than receiving a large, concentrated dose of nutrients. Mesotherapy also has significantly fewer side effects than traditional fat removal methods such as liposuction or BodyTite, as there are no incisions made or sedation required.
Some of the small side effects of mesotherapy can include minor swelling, sensitivity, redness, itching, temporary bruising or slight bulging around the injection sites as the solution settles. These symptoms will typically subside within 24-48 hours of injections, and will heal leaving no scarring whatsoever.
The results of mesotherapy are immediate and treatment comes with practically no downtime whatsoever. Patients may feel a little tender or sore after meso treatment but these symptoms typically do not exceed the 48 hour mark. By this point, your new meso-glow should have begun to take over and any visible side effects of treatment will have vanished.
Both traditional and electro mesotherapy are extremely straightforward and should not prevent you from working at all. Patients are generally comfortable to return to normality the very same day, and with neither treatment requiring any bandaging or heavy dressing, patients ordinarily have no trouble concealing injection sites or being inconspicuous about treatment if they so wish.
It should be noted, however, that on occasion, injection sites may remain a little sore for a few days, so if you job is particularly hands-on or boisterous you may wish to let this settle before returning to work. Doctors will be happy to advise you on this based on your personal circumstances.
