The older you get, the more likely you are to develop visible wrinkles, fine lines, and skin discoloration. Some of these changes can be hard to accept when you look in the mirror, especially if you struggle to mask them with cosmetics.
That’s why so many of us want to rejuvenate our skin and achieve a more youthful look. And mesotherapy is an outstanding cosmetic treatment with the power to improve your skin’s appearance and create a beautiful glow from the inside out.
But how does it work? What should you expect with your first mesotherapy treatment at a medical spa? And how much does it cost?
In this post, we’ll explore everything you need to know about mesotherapy, including how it works, what conditions it can treat, and much more.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is the secret to gorgeous, glowing skin you may not know about. While treatments like Botox and lip injections have received widespread media attention, mesotherapy tends to be less well-known than these popular medical spa treatments.
The mesotherapy treatment process uses a special handheld device containing multiple microneedles. Each needle injects a specially formulated substance into skin in target areas, usually the forehead, cheeks, and chin.
The substance injected into the skin during a mesotherapy treatment contains a personalized combination of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
Mesotherapy treatments tend to be fairly brief at our medical spa — from 20 to 30 minutes. As a result, they’re easy to fit into your schedule. Session length can vary depending on how many injection sites you have.
How Does Mesotherapy Help Your Skin?
Mesotherapy helps your skin in multiple ways. One of the most important is that it stimulates collagen production in target areas: collagen is an essential protein and a major building block in your skin, muscles, and bones. It helps to keep your skin looking youthful and plump, but the body produces less of it with age. That’s why your skin starts to sag and lose volume as you get older.
But as mesotherapy promotes collagen production, it can contribute to firmer, plumper skin after a full course of treatments. That’s fantastic if the skin around your jawline and cheeks has started to become looser over the years.
Mesotherapy can also encourage elastin production, which is crucial to maintain the skin’s elasticity and reduce sagging.
On top of this, mesotherapy can also leave your skin looking rejuvenated and with a more youthful glow.
What Issues and Conditions Does Mesotherapy Treat?
Mesotherapy treatments at our medical spa can help with the following skin issues and conditions:
More than 5.6 million Canadians have acne, including 20 to 30% of adults aged 20 to 40. The severity of the condition can vary from person to person, and may lead to scarring.
Acne is often caused by blocked pores, usually the result of dead skin cells and excessive production of sebum (a natural oily substance that prevents the skin from drying out). Blocked pores can create whiteheads and blackheads.
Mesotherapy can improve the appearance of both acne and acne scarring by helping to make skin stronger.
Developing a double chin is a common sign of aging. It occurs when a layer of fat grows beneath the chin and the skin becomes looser.
Mesotherapy treatment may help reduce the size of a double chin by injecting substances that target fat and create smoother, more defined skin.
Eye Bags and Dark Circles
The formation of eye bags and/or dark circles below the eyes is a natural part of the aging process. It occurs when the tissues surrounding your eyes become weaker and sag. As eye bags and dark circles are often very noticeable, many people visit our medical spa to take care of them.
Mesotherapy can make the affected skin firmer and stronger, which may reduce the visibility of eye bags and dark circles.
Hyperpigmentation refers to dark patches of skin on the face and/or body. This is typically caused by excessive production of melanin, the naturally occurring substance that gives skin its color.
When your body produces more melanin than usual, your skin can appear discolored. It may appear as patches or spots, commonly known as age or liver spots. Mesotherapy can cultivate a more balanced complexion and improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Localized, Stubborn Body Fat
If you have stubborn body fat that refuses to disappear even with a healthy diet and exercise, you may visit our medical spa for mesotherapy treatment. Certain substances used in mesotherapy injections can help to break down stubborn, localized fat.
Is Mesotherapy Suitable for Everyone?
Mesotherapy treatments are generally safe for anyone over the age of 18 provided they are in good health, though there will be exceptions. This is why you need to undergo a detailed consultation at our medical spa before your first session.
Your treatment provider will examine your skin, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
Fortunately, adults with all skin types can try mesotherapy. Whether your skin is saggy, dull, dry, or oily, you may achieve incredible results after the recommended number of sessions at our medical spa.
How Many Mesotherapy Sessions Will I Need?
Most people undergo between three and six mesotherapy sessions at our medical spa. These are spaced one to four weeks apart depending on how your skin responds to the process.
Your treatment provider will discuss how many sessions you’re likely to need, and how often, during your consultation.
How Much Do Mesotherapy Treatments Cost?
The cost of your mesotherapy treatment will depend on:
