Many people find that, as they age, their skin doesn’t look as great or feel as tight and soft as it did in their youth. The trouble is, some individuals believe there is nothing that can get done to enjoy a youthful appearance once again.

Thankfully, many cosmetic solutions can help tackle the unwanted effects of ageing. One such example is mesotherapy, a minimally-invasive technique that offers real, long-lasting results to patients.

What is mesotherapy?

If you’re wondering what is mesotherapy, it’s a cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates and tightens the skin. It’s a technique first developed in the early 1950s by a French doctor, Michel Pistor, to relieve pain but is now widely used for various cosmetic treatments.

Mesotherapy involves using micro-fine needles to inject vitamins into the middle layer of the skin – the mesoderm. It’s a popular alternative to existing cosmetic treatments such as liposuction, Botox, and facelifts.

You can use mesotherapy to tighten loose skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, lighten pigmented skin, and treat alopecia. It’s also a good treatment for fat and cellulite reduction.

The benefits of mesotherapy

Arguably the main benefit of mesotherapy is that it’s a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment. But what does mesotherapy do, exactly? In a nutshell, mesotherapy is a practical solution for addressing a wide range of cosmetic complaints.

An advantage of mesotherapy compared to alternative treatments is patients can have injectable solutions tailored to their unique requirements. What that means is there are little to no side effects, plus the results are local or regional to the injection sites.

At Cosmetic Injectables Australia, our mesotherapy solutions target the excess pigmentation, skin redness, and uneven skin tone. What’s more, they all promote collagen production, resulting in a more youthful and healthy-looking complexion.

Mesotherapy is safe for use with all skin types and has an extremely low risk of post-treatment complications or side effects.

What is the treatment process?

Our mesotherapy solutions start with a topical Vitamin A application to the skin. After a minimum of two weeks has elapsed, we will then proceed with the mesotherapy treatment.

The mesotherapy serums we use on our patients will depend on the specific cosmetic issues they wish to address. We would typically recommend the REM serum by Skin Health Science as it contains vitamins  A and B, and key peptides for collagen production.

Before the mesotherapy treatment begins, we apply a topical solution to numb the skin for 30 minutes. We use micro-fine needles with a 1.0mm depth to inject the vitamins into your skin during that time. Patients may have some mild redness for 12-24 hours after treatment.

Does mesotherapy work?

If you’re considering a treatment to address some cosmetic issues, you might be asking yourself, does mesotherapy work?

Mesotherapy patients can see the results of their treatments four to six weeks after their session. Treatments get tailored to each patient’s requirements, resulting in successful outcomes.

Some patients may combine mesotherapy with other cosmetic treatments to achieve a particular goal. Contact Cosmetic Injectables Australia to book an appointment with our team so you can learn how mesotherapy can help you.
