Everybody wants to be healthy–this is why the diet and wellness industries have no shortage of consumers. Taking care of yourself means investing in nourishing food and a fit lifestyle. Some people, though, would like to take that a step up.
Aside from feeling and living well, they want to look good, too. This is why many people chase after that elusive ‘inner glow,’ or ‘glass skin.’ After all, a clear complexion signals a healthy body.
But with so many options for skin treatments, it might be daunting to begin. What’s more, since some treatments require regimens, it might be difficult to sustain them. If you are looking for a low-maintenance way to skin rejuvenation, mesotherapy might be the answer.
What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy, a medical technique developed in the 1950s, was pioneered by French physician Dr. Michael Pistor. It was intended to help with pain management and in the treatment of vascular disorders. Pistor coined the term ‘mesotherapy,’ and he defined it as treatment of the middle layer of the skin. The procedure involves the use of fine needles in delivering enzymes, hormones, or vitamins intravenously.
In the beginning, it was intended to alleviate pain related to medical procedures. Dr. Pistor injected procaine in a patient, which led to improvements in hearing. Other hearing-impaired patients reported that the therapy improved other things like eczema of the auditory canal, tinnitus, and joint pain in the ear.
Mesotherapy in skincare
This procedure eventually found its way to dermatology, where it is used to treat wrinkles, pigmentation, and cellulite, among others. It has also been used to treat conditions like alopecia, and in assisting with weight loss. Patients report that mesotherapy delivers a higher concentration of the formula and addresses multiple skin issues at the same time.
Because the treatments are directly injected into the mesoderm, the skin takes over the delivery of the enzymes or vitamins. This natural time-release system regulates the dosage used by the body, resulting in more precise delivery.
Benefits of mesotherapy
This procedure does not use a lot of equipment. It is also an outpatient procedure. Unlike in other fat loss treatments like liposuction, or skin procedures like administering botox, mesotherapy can be performed within fifteen minutes.
Apart from speedy delivery, it also allows for more targeted, powerful administration. Because the formula is injected into the skin, there is a smaller dosage needed.
Depending on your skin type, you may need at least two to three sessions. A week’s rest is also recommended between sessions, so your initial treatment will last for about a month. But after this, you can expect the results to last for up to 18 months.
Mesotherapy is a quick, relatively painless way to deliver vitamins and enzymes into the second layer of the skin, the mesoderm. This is a customizable procedure; because people’s skin varies, each person can receive a mesoderm treatment plan that fits their type.
If you are looking for a lasting way to get rid of fat deposits, stretch marks, wrinkles, and other unsightly skin conditions, a mesotherapy course might be right for you.
