Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment used for skin rejuvenation and slimming, as well as to treat hair loss and cellulite. A cocktail of vitamins, amino acids, anti-inflammatories and homeopathic medicines is deposited into the skin through a specific technique. This medication stimulates the middle layer of skin, improving microcirculation and drainage of toxins in the area treated.

Treatments are usually a course of about ten for fat and cellulite reduction and six for skin rejuvenation, given once a week. The patient is then assessed to determine an on-going programme of maintenance. In some cases, a further full course of treatment may be recommended.

Uses of Mesotherapy:

Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite is caused by poor circulation, fat build up, a weakening of connective tissues, lymphatic congestion and hormonal imbalances. Cellulite is classified into four stages, based upon its appearance while standing, laying, and pinching the skin. Mesotherapy treatment is targeted to correct these problems by improving circulation, strengthening connective tissues, and dissolving excess fat.

Weight Loss

For weight loss, mesotherapy works to modify the biology of fat cells. It does so by blocking the signals of fat accumulation and simultaneously triggering the release of stored fat. The desired area of treatment can be very specific, targeting the most problematic areas. Additionally, a complete dietary and nutrient evaluation is needed to help maintain weight loss goals.

Hair Regrowth

Alopecia, the loss of hair, affects both men and women. Alopecia results from poor circulation, nutritional imbalances and the excess of a hormone known as DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Mesotherapy can correct these problems, stimulating the body to naturally grow lost hair.

Face and Neck Rejuvenation

Ageing, sagging and wrinkling of the skin occurs from accumulation of fat, loss of skin elasticity and excessive free radical damage. Using antioxidants and amino acids, mesotherapy aims to remove fat from under the neck, remove free radical damage, and tighten loose skin. The effects are said to rejuvenate the face, eyelids, and neck without the unnatural appearance and painful recovery of surgical face lifting.

Body Sculpting and slimming

Contouring of the abdomen, arms, back, legs and hands can be obtained with mesotherapy. Vitamins and amino acids are used to tighten sagging skin while other agents are used to remove areas of fat, restoring a more youthful and athletic appearance to the body’s contours.


Am I a candidate for mesotherapy?

Women and men over the age of 18 and who are in good health are candidates for mesotherapy.

How do I prepare for mesotherapy?

There is no need for any specific preparation. Simply do not apply lotions or creams to the areas being treated.

How long does the procedure take?

Depending on the condition being treated, it takes about 10-20 minutes per area being treated.

Does one need recovery time?

No, the procedure generally only takes about 30 minutes and requires no recovery time.

When do results occur and how long do they last?

Results vary according to your body type and the condition being treated. On average, patients see a noticeable improvement in two to three sessions. In certain conditions, patients see results after the first session. Results can be long-lasting when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, natural ageing can diminish beneficial effects so regular maintenance may be required.

How often can I repeat treatments?

Best results are achieved when mesotherapy is repeated several times, e.g. six treatment sessions given once a week for skin rejuvenation, and ten for fat and cellulite reduction, and this can be repeated once every 2-3 months until a satisfactory result is achieved.

Are the treatments painful?

You may feel a slight pinching or burning sensation when the injections are administered. However, we can provide a topical anaesthetic that makes treatment virtually painless.

Is it safe?

Mesotherapy uses natural vitamins and minerals as well as homeopathic medicines so is considered very safe.

Are there any side effects?

A common side effect of mesotherapy is bruising, which generally resolves over the following couple of days.
