Looking for an effective, simple, non-invasive anti-aging treatment?
Mesotherapy could be just what you need.
Mesotherapy has become increasingly popular in recent years, and offers a powerful alternative to other, more invasive procedures. This type of treatment can fight common signs of aging, improve the appearance of your skin, and address various conditions on the face or body.
At Astra Medicare, our team offers professional mesotherapy treatments to suit all skin types. But if you’ve never tried mesotherapy or any other cosmetic treatment before, you may feel a little nervous about booking your first session.
That’s why we’ve written the following guide to mesotherapy: by the time you reach the end, you’ll understand how mesotherapy works, what benefits it offers, and other essential details.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a treatment technique designed to leave your skin tighter, revitalized, and more youthful. Treatment providers may also use mesotherapy to get rid of excess fat on the body or around the face (such as a double chin).
A cocktail of hormones, plant extracts, vitamins, and enzymes are injected into target areas, based on your unique aesthetic goals.
How Does Mesotherapy Work?
Mesotherapy treatment is fairly straightforward and quick. If this is your first cosmetic procedure, you may be surprised by just how simple it actually is.
During mesotherapy, treatment providers use a handheld tool containing many fine needles. These inject the carefully formulated substance into the skin’s middle layer (known as the mesoderm) as the treatment provider moves the device across the target area. The depth of those injections may vary from treatment to treatment, based on the condition to be treated.
All mesotherapy treatments at Astra Medicare are performed by registered nurses and medical doctors. They will provide you with a comfortable experience, answer your questions, and ensure that you know what to expect from your treatment.
What are the Top Reasons to Try Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is designed to rejuvenate your skin and enhance its overall appearance, with a proven anti-aging effect. If you’re frustrated by certain signs of aging on your face or neck, such as a double chin, age spots, or dark circles under your eyes, mesotherapy could make a big difference.
Mesotherapy can be used to target a number of issues, including:
Mesotherapy may make your skin look less tired and dull, while helping to improve circulation and remove toxins that contribute to the signs of aging. The nutrients used in mesotherapy substances can also promote collagen production, which is essential for maintaining tight, firm, plump skin.
Does Mesotherapy Cause Discomfort?
A topical cream will be applied to the target area before your treatment to help you stay comfortable. If you feel nervous about needle injections, tell your treatment provider beforehand and they will be happy to help put you at ease.
What Should You Do After Your Mesotherapy Treatment?
For some people, their go-to anti-aging solution is cosmetic surgery. But one of the biggest issues with invasive procedures is the downtime required.
Fortunately, mesotherapy is a noninvasive treatment so you won’t experience any downtime, which is a big advantage if you want to fit a quick cosmetic procedure into a packed schedule. You may be able to continue with your plans after your treatment, whether you go to work or go shopping.
However, some people may prefer to go home and rest after their mesotherapy treatment, depending on the areas targeted. Your treatment provider will be able to offer advice on your post-mesotherapy plans.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any other cosmetic treatment, mesotherapy may lead to side effects. It’s unlikely that you will experience any of these, but it’s important that you’re aware of potential effects before you try mesotherapy.
Possible side effects include:
Your treatment provider will discuss the potential side effects with you during your consultation.
How Often Do You Need Mesotherapy Treatments?
It’s likely that you will notice improvements in your skin and/or body after your first session, but it will take longer for the full results to become visible.
The number of mesotherapy sessions required to achieve your aesthetic goals will depend on the issues to be addressed. Typically, though, we recommend a course of six sessions scheduled at two to four week intervals.
How Long Do Mesotherapy Results Last?
Various factors determine how long your mesotherapy results will stay visible, including your skin type, the number of sessions you have undergone, and the condition(s) treated.
However, results generally last from one year to 18 months. We may be able to give you a more accurate time frame during your consultation.
Will You Be Able to Apply Makeup Immediately After Mesotherapy?
You may feel tempted to wear makeup after your mesotherapy treatment, but we recommend that you avoid applying any cosmetics to your face for 24 hours after your session.
What Other Anti-Aging Treatments are Available?
A variety of other anti-aging treatments are available at Astra Medicare. If you’re curious about other treatments designed to cultivate a more youthful appearance, you can choose from the following options:
