Mesotherapy is a procedure that is used to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat by injecting vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts into the skin.

A doctor from France named Michel Pistor created this kind of treatment in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. In the years since then, it has gained popularity in the United States and in other parts of the world.

The procedure uses a very fine needle to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of the skin. Injections can help solve usual problems like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.

Several solutions will be used depending on the need, because mesotherapy doesn’t have a standard formula. The solution is composed of:

  • Enzymes like collagenase and hyaluronidase
  • Herbal extracts
  • Hormones such as calcitonin and thyroxin
  • Prescription medicines like vasodilators and antibiotics
  • Vitamins and minerals

Why Is mesotherapy required?

Mesotherapy is utilized for:

  • Acne Treatment 
  • Cellulite reducing
  • Treating wrinkles and fine lines
  • Fat removing, especially in body parts like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
  • Lightening of pigmented skin
  • Recontouring the body
  • Tightening loose skin
  • Treating alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss

What to expect during the procedure?

A specialized injection will be done into the skin surface. Prior to this, a numbing agent will first be injected. For satisfying outcomes, several mesotherapy sessions may be needed. A mesotherapy session can be repeated for 3 to 25 times.  The first injection is given every 7 to 10 days. If the doctor sees improvement, it will be given once every two weeks or once a month.

If you are undergoing mesotherapy treatment, you may need to avoid using certain medications to avoid bleeding or complications after the procedure. Consult your Doctor in advance for all your queries.

Post Procedure Care

After the procedure, you can return to your daily activities. This procedure is noninvasive and you may only feel little pain. Treatment can be done at a maximum of 30 minutes. Also, a little bruising and swelling may be experienced, but these will fade away after 24 hours. A maintenance session is advised 1-2 times a year.

Mesotherapy has fewer complications if you go to a trained practitioner.
