A totally targeted effect
Mesotherapy is a technique which allows active particles to be injected subcutaneously. This is neither alternative nor complementary medicine, it simply consists of placing droplets of medicine under the skin. The main advantage is that this produces a local effect with no systemic toxicity and no drug interactions. In aesthetic medicine, mesotherapy can be used to treat:
- ageing of the skin, by injecting a cocktail of vitamins and hyaluronic acid. The result is a glossy sheen, with a gradual reduction in the number of fine wrinkles and firming up of the skin.
- Cellulite, by injecting drugs which release the fat and increase the tone of the muscles. This leads to a loss of fat which can be measured in centimetres and a reduction in the "orange peel skin" effect.
- Hair loss, by injecting the vitamins and trace elements needed for regrowth. The result is that hair stops falling out in large amounts and there is stimulated regrowth at the follicles.
The treatment is administered using very fine needles. It is practically painless and does not require either any preparation or any special care after the session. The injections cause moderate irritation which feels a bit like insect bites. They can be carried out manually or by using an electric gun. Haematomas on the face are rare and usually resorb spontaneously.
There are no contra-indications except pregnancy. The treatment is done in a session every 10 days for 4 to 6 weeks, thereafter boosters every 6 to 8 weeks.
