What is a mesotherapy?


Time leaves several marks on the skin, like lack of radiance, volume and firmness, fine lines, wrinkles and also dark spots. Mesotherapy is a non invasive technique that rejuvenates the skin, on the face and the body, and can also fight hair loss. It includes the use of an injectable mixture that varies – it can contain hyaluronic acid alone or in combination with vitamins and other substances – in order to treat each time a specific skin problem. Therapy offers total rejuvenation and reduces ageing signs on the face and the body. It also treats uneven skin, discoloration and acne marks. Lastly, using the right substances mesotherapy can also work against hair loss, cellulite and skin laxity.

Who’s a good candidate?


Mesotherapy is a very safe, painless and non invasive method, ideal for every healthy adult. Its goal is to replenish substances, like for instance hyaluronic acid, that are normally produced by the body but their production starts declining after approximately the age of 25. It can also fight fat excess thanks to the use of certain substances that melt fat or lighten pigmented skin with the addition of specific whitening ingredients. It mainly concerns patients that wish to achieve a natural rejuvenation and enhancement of their skin appearance and do not desire a drastic, permanent change. It can also work as a preventive method against premature ageing and can, therefore, concern also younger patients.

Facts I need to know


A mesotherapy session uses very thin needles to inject beneficial substances into the mesoderm (the middle layer of the skin). There are several different meshotherapy protocols that use different ingredients, according to the skin needs of each patient. The most common ones are hyaluronic acid, vitamins and antioxidants, ingredients that the skin needs in order to properly function. A mesotherapy always has as its main goal to deeply nourish and rejuvenate the skin while, thanks to the small injuries it causes, it stimulates the natural collagen and elastin production offering a firmer and smoother skin. The doctor will suggest the number of mesotherapy sessions required in each case in order to achieve visible rejuvenation results. The treatment is safe, quite painless, performed in the office with local anesthetic cream and takes 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.

Recovery Time


After a mesotherapy session patients return immediately to their every day routine and to their work. They may initially notice a mild swelling and redness but symptoms subside in the next few days. Results become visible once the required sessions are completed and last for about 12 to 18 months. Patients can repeat sessions in order to make results last longer.

Doctor’s Remarks:


Mesotherapy is a very popular method and, in a way, constitutes the next step from every day skin care. Mesotherapy offers a very high concentration of active ingredients that penetrate up to 100% into the skin. During our skincare, at home, active ingredients penetrate up to 3% into the skin and, therefore, products are much less effective than a mesotherapy. This treatment gives us the possibility to lighten skin, firm it and tighten it in a very short time. All these result are possible with a very simple and natural procedure that doesn’t alter our features and that has recently proved to work against cellulite and hair loss. We must also underline the importance of therapy with plasma, another type of mesotherapy that works naturally to rejuvenate the face and the scalp. Mesotherapy is an ideal option to nourish skin in combination with other, more or less invasive techniques such as face lift, Face Tite, iPixel, Clear Lift, Morpheus.
