Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy treatment is a non surgical cosmetic solution aimed at diminishing problem areas in your body such as cellulite, excess weight, body contouring, and face/neck rejuvenation, just to name a few. It is administered via numerous injections containing various types of FDA approved medicines, vitamins, and minerals.

If you are one of the thousands, if not millions, of women who suffer from Wrinkling, your best policy for preventing Skin Wrinkling is to take the following 5 preventive steps and then consider the possibility of active aesthetic treatment and correction of the existing problem.

  1. Pay attention to your diet
    • Do not allow yourself to get dehydrated. Drink a regular amount of high quality, pure water.
    • Avoid excessive consumption of coffee, alcohol, very high fat foods like chocolate/candy.
    • Make sure your diet includes enough fiber. (30 grams a day is a good target)
    • Eat regular amounts of fresh fruit.
    • Avoid excessive carbohydrates if excess body fat is a problem.
    • The more natural foods your diet contains, the better.
  2. Quit or cut down on smoking
  3. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure, including direct exposure and the use of tanning booths.
  4. Exercise regularly.
    • Ideally in the fresh air.
    • Make it part of your daily routine.
    • If outside exercise is impossible, do it inside, to music.
    • Or, do a regular series of breathing exercises four to six hours per week.
  5. Don't let stress get on top of you. Make relaxation a regular part of your daily routine.

These 5 steps will help to cleanse your body of toxins that are believed to be a major contributory cause of Skin Wrinkling. They will also make you feel a lot better. Don't expect miracles from these five steps. They are designed to help reduce the development of Wrinkles, not actually to cure them. Additional active aesthetic treatment is usually required to reduce or eliminate Wrinkles that have already formed.

Aesthetic Treatment of Skin Wrinkling

Active treatments for Skin Wrinkling includes the local application of topical products, including collagen, elastin, Bio-Identical low-dose estrogen (E3 or Estriol), vitamains, minerals, glycolic acid and other botanical compounds.

As an alternative to plastic surgery, many Mesotherapists practice the specialty of Medical Aesthetics because of the beautifying effects Mesotherapy has on the skin. The skin is often treated successfully with Mesotherapy. Wrinkles and Cellulite respond well to Mesotherapy. The injections reach not only the different layers of the skin, but the subcutaneous fat as well, helping reverse the physiology that makes cellulite form. Mesotherapy injections using vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies and natural proteins can be used to rejuvenate (Mesoglow) and eventually tonify (Mesolift) the involved areas of facial and other body areas of wrinkled skin.

Because Skin Wrinkling commonly involves nutritional, hormonal and environmental abnormalities in normal skin healing, Mesotherapy injections can be done in conjunction with a comprehensive natural medicine program designed to improve overall metabolism. This has the effect of increasing the benefit of Mesothera py and improving overall health. Hormone imbalances are often at the core of the problem and may need to be identified, measured and corrected to have maximum benefits. If the underlying physiology is corrected and maintained, then Mesotherapy can be done as an initial series. If it recurs, then the Mesotherapy process will need to be repeated for ongoing results.

The actual technique of Mesotherapy injections involve extremely small needles that penetrate the body only a very small depth, which is typically four to six millimeters. Many of the needle sticks are not even felt because often times the skin is iced or cooled prior to and during the injections. Extreme care is taken to minimize any pain, discomfort, bruising and bleeding and to make the Mesotherapy experience as painless and as comfortable as is humanly possible.

Mesotherapy treatments for Cellulite are typically given twice per week, depending on the severity of the condition being treated. As improvement is seen, the treatments may be given less frequently, such as once every two weeks or once per month until the problem is resolved or minimized to cosmetic satisfaction. Mesotherapy can involve anywhere between 30 and 300 shots or more per session, depending on the condition and amount of area covered. Mesotherapy techniques involve very superficial, quick injections, taking less than a couple of minutes to do all of the injections, thereby maximizing the amount of area stimulated. This is necessary for conditions such as cellulite, where a maximum area must be stimulated to produce a good results.

The number of Mesotherapy treatments needed depends upon many variables, including the extent, the abnormal physiology causing the condition, as well as the chronicity of the problem. For long term chronic conditions such as cellulite and wrinkles, at least 8 to 15 sessions of Mesotherapy will usually be needed.

Side effect of Mesotherapy for Cellulite are are generally minimal, and include localized temporary swelling, redness, itching, bruising, discomfort and possible allergy. All of these effects except allergy are temporary and usually resolve within a few hours to a week.

In addition, because Mesotherapy for Cellulite includes enzymes to reduce the scarring collagen content in the tissue, it is necessary that each patient undergoing therapy have a simple allergy skin test prior to beginning Mesotherapy to ensure that no allergy to the protein-based enzyme Hyaluronidase is present. This helps to minimize the possibility of serious allergic reaction to Cellulite Mesotherapy.
