A treatment for skin rejuvenation through rehydration.
Mesotherapy is a technique, invented in 1952 by Dr. Michel Pistor, where medication is injected into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. Over the past 50+ years, in excess of 50,000 physicians worldwide have used Mesotherapy regularly for a variety of purposes, including overall weight loss, spot weight reduction, cellulite reduction, lightening of dermal pigmentation and wrinkle reduction.
- Mesolifting with Hyaluronic Acid
- Mesobotox with Botox
- Mesosculpting with Lipodissolve
Mesotherapy is a technique using very small doses of compounded medications that are administered in specific areas, depending on the condition being treated. The medicines and plant extracts used are typically obtained from compounding pharmacies in most countries, although Europe mass manufactures many products that are prohibited for import into most other countries.
All medicines used are FDA-approved for their use. In combination, medicines for Mesotherapy are used for off-label purposes. A recent illustration of this distinction is Botox. Although Botox was FDA approved for controlling muscle spasms, the medical community embraced it for its cosmetic properties of controlling wrinkles. For many years, plastic surgeons and dermatologists used Botox for off-label purposes.
Mesotherapy has shown to be effective for including the following:
- Flaccid Skin
- Big Pore
- Localized Fat
A. Mesolift with Hyaluronic Acid
Aging processes can be cruel to our skin – Between sun damage and progressive collagen loss, the skin loses its plumpness and resiliency. Mesotherapy skin rejuvenation or “Mesolift” infuses the dermis with potent Hyaluronic Acid and anti-oxidants to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. Mesolift mainly consists of hyaluronic acid – the body’s natural method for a strong regenerative effect.
Mesolift with Hyaluronic Acid: an excellent choice at any age. It is used both for prevention of further sagging of the skin and for active hydration, tightening and smoothing the skin of face, neck, décolleté and back side of hands. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful hydrating factor – one acid molecule attracts to the subcutaneous tissue 1000 molecules of water. Besides, it helps for collagen genesis and bio revitalization of the skin. As a product, it is a ready injection form of 2 ml gel solution, which is usually enough for one procedure of the face. In order to achieve long-lasting effect, it is necessary to complete a course of three procedures for a period of three months (one therapy per month) or for quick recovery of skin for 3 weeks, one procedure per week. Different companies, such as Allergan, Stillage and others produce hyaluronic acid for mesotherapy with identical properties.
People who have had a “Mesolift” describe their skin as firm, radiant, youthful and glowing. The “Mesolift” is usually performed in an initial series of 2-4 treatments spaced one or two months apart. Results are maintained by once or twice a year touch up sessions. Wrinkles, like other conditions involving the skin, have a multi-factorial etiology.
Excessive skin wrinkles can be caused by: overall dehydration, excessive sun exposure, genetics, facial expressions, muscle atrophy, fatty acid deficiencies, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and many other causes.
MesoBotox is a the term which involves injecting multiple small doses of BOTOX into the skin of the face to reduce the action of sweat and sebaceous glands as well as the superficial layer of facial muscles which are responsible for those very fine, annoying lines of the forehead or under the eyes.
The net effect is improved sheen of the face with smooth skin, tighter pores, reduced oil production, reduced redness and yet the ability to move all the deeper muscles of the face thus retaining a natural, non “plastic” appearance. Patient feedback has found that MesoBotox is a welcome complement to traditional BOTOX injections.
A greatly diluted (sometimes up to 1:10) Botox substance is used for this procedure. It is applied using micro-injections below skin surface to any facial area or separate chosen areas according to the physician’s opinion. The procedure is painless after applying local anesthesia. It takes about 30 minutes and patient’s normal daily routine is not interrupted. Immediately after treatment, the kin appears slightly red that may last for about an hour.
MesoSculpting uses Phophatydlcholine, also known as “Lipodissolve” for fat loss of small area and body contouring. It is also the answer to those patients who have already had liposuction and have been left with the fat deposits around the area they had the liposuction surgery done. These fat deposits post liposuction surgery is quite common.
MesoSculpting involves microinjections using Phosphatydlcholine to achieve the lipolytic effect. The injections are given directly into the areas being treated i.e. love handles, bra bulge, saddlebags, inner thighs, arms, and knees etc.
Results are considered permanent as long as the patient adheres to a proper nutrition and exercise regimen.
The main concern for many women around the globe is cellulite. The ugly, dimply, orange-skin appearance is obvious even on the thinnest of thighs. That’s not surprising when you consider cellulite is a skin condition affecting over 90% of most post-pubescent women.
Cellulite is not caused by being overweight at all and can affect even slim figured women in all areas of the body – thighs, hips, buttocks, stomach, knees and even upper arms… Patients often complain about the external visible appearance of cellulite — lumpy, dimpled appearance. Cellulite commonly appears on the hips, buttocks and legs, but is not caused by being overweight as many believe.
Cellulite appears in the subcutaneous level of skin tissue. Fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by connective tissue called septae. As water is retained, fat cells held within the perimeters of this area expand and stretch the connective tissue. Eventually this connective tissue contracts and hardens (sclerosis) holding the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissue continues to expand with weight, or water gain. This then results in areas of the skin being held down while other sections bulge outward, resulting in the dimply ‘cottage-cheese’ appearance.
Studies have Shown Mesotherapy to effectively reduce cellulite. This is due to the following facts:
- Improves blood flow to the area
- Dissolves excess fat deposits
- Removes fibrotic, hardened connective tissue
- Improves lymphatic drainage
