What is Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a skincare treatment that works from the inside out. It’s named such because it targets the mesodermal layer of skin. The term is derived from the Greek word “mesos” which means “middle” as the treatment works with the middle layer of your skin.

This is done through simple and gentle injections that improve the health, appearance, and even feel of your skin; underneath and on the surface. The treatments can be tailored to your needs, so we have something for everyone at our clinic here in Vaughn. They can also be easily combined with other treatments for a comprehensive skincare overhaul.

Read on to learn more about mesotherapy and what it can do for you and your skin!

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a fantastic and revolutionary treatment that significantly improves your skin concerns while addressing the root causes. The treatment consists of safe and minimally invasive microinjections that infuse a series of hormones, enzymes, vitamins, and plant extracts into your skin.

The injections are specially formulated for your needs and will offer overall rejuvenation, tightening, and improvement to your specific issues.

How it Works

The process for our mesotherapy here in Vaughn follows a few simple steps:

  • We begin with a consultation. Here, you’ll meet with a skincare professional in person to discuss your various needs, wants, and goals. This helps us tailor the treatment to you to ensure optimal, lasting results.
  • Next, we can administer the first treatment. Each session involves multiple injections containing your personal cocktail on and around the target areas.
  • Sessions last anywhere from 30-60 minutes, making it the perfect length for a quick refresh or a lunchtime pick-me-up!
  • You can return to your day as normal, whether it’s back home to relax or the second half of your workday.
  • We generally recommend you receive a series of treatments for the best possible results. The exact number will be determined after a proper consultation.

What it can Treat

Mesotherapy is a wonderfully versatile treatment that can work a little differently for everyone. That being said, it’s well-known for treating a variety of common issues:

  • Signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Dull, lifeless skin
  • Uneven skin tones and textures
  • Loss of elasticity and firmness
  • Pigmentation issues like sunspots or melasma

Mesotherapy Benefits

There are many treatments available to improve and enhance the look, feel, and health of your skin. These range from topical to surgical, and everything has pros and cons. Topical treatments are limited in their effects, and surgery is risky and invasive. Mesotherapy is a safe and gentle treatment that hits the perfect sweet spot, offering many benefits:

  • Nourishment and hydration. Regardless of your specific concerns, most people struggle with proper hydration and nourishment. Mesotherapy provides deep hydration and infuses many nutrients directly into the skin.
  • Collagen and elastin. These two are incredibly important for skin health, appearance, and longevity. Natural production slows as we age, and mesotherapy offers a boost.
  • Tone and texture. Uneven tones and textured skin are also common issues and regular sessions easily address this.
  • Improved circulation. Strong, healthy blood circulation is essential to help detoxify the skin and maintain a natural glow. Mesotherapy enhances blood circulation for healthy, glowing skin.
  • Anti-aging. While skin ages naturally over time, many things can cause premature aging such as sun exposure, poor diet, smoking, etc. Regardless, mesotherapy can help diminish these signs and create a more youthful complexion.
  • Customizable. One of the best things about mesotherapy is that it’s not a one-size-fits-all treatment. The injectable solution can be tweaked and tailored to address the specific skin conditions and concerns you’re dealing with. If you come back for multiple treatments, we can even tweak the formula from one treatment to the next for ongoing customization.

Risks and Side Effects

Although extremely safe and gentle, there are a few risks and side effects to be aware of, including:

  • Itching, redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site(s)
  • Bumps, dark patches of skin, or a rash
  • Sensitivity
  • Nausea

The risk of these are minimal but are mild and won’t last long should they occur. They are even less likely when you choose a clean, reputable clinic with experienced technicians to administer the treatment! More serious risks can include infections and scarring – especially if the treatment isn’t performed correctly.

Recovery and Aftercare

One of the best things about Mesotherapy is that it barely disrupts you and your life. Many people come in for a session and return to work right after, and/or go home to enjoy family time! You don’t need to arrange for downtime or an extensive recovery.

That being said, there are a few aftercare steps you can take to help keep yourself comfortable and ensure the most optimal results:

  • Drink lots of water for 24 hours following treatment to ensure skin stays well hydrated
  • Avoid makeup, heavy exercise, alcohol, sun exposure, saunas, and very hot showers for about 48 hours following treatment. Use at least SPF50 if going out in the sun
  • Painkillers may be taken for any discomfort after treatment – speak to your practitioner about which ones are most suitable
  • Avoid facial hair removal treatments for at least five days following treatment
  • Don’t go swimming – especially in chlorinated water – for about five days

Although your skin may need a little TLC for a day or two after treatment, the injections do stimulate your skin’s natural healing abilities. This means it’ll be healing itself along with your efforts.
