In 1952, the technique of mesotherapy was first applied by French therapist Michel Pistor. It is a minimum invasive technique, which is widely used in the entire world in treating various health problems. This is a direction of aesthetic medicine due to which the problems of alopecia, weak hair, hair loss, acne, cellulite, stretch marks, loose skin are solved and skin wrinkles are eliminated by using various effective materials – vitamins, minerals, amino acids and hyaluronic acid. The doctor selects the specific combinations of active materials for problem solution and due to microinjections the material passes to mesoderma (the middle layer of skin).
Henceforth, the Era Esthetic laser dermatology clinics uses French company’s “Biophymed” mesotherapy gun U225 – the most modern and popular mesotherapy gun. (more information below)
Indications for mesotherapy:
- Cellulite, local accumulations of fat (thighs, abdomen, buttocks, hips, knee area);
- Treatment of stretch marks;
- Skin ageing (prophylaxis and treatment);
- Fatty porous skin;
- Treatment of head skin and hair (alopetion, loss, weak, breaking hair);
- Skin atony;
- Increased pigmentation;
- Double chin;
- Ageing skin losing its elasticity;
- Greyish, „smoker’s” skin;
- Dry, atonic skin;
- Pouches under eyes;
- “Blurry” face with lost oval form;
- Visible face capillaries, skin redness;
- Scars (post-acne or after traumas).
- Pregnancy, lactation;
- Post-surgical period;
- Coagulation disorders;
- Acute skin diseases, exacerbation of chronic skin diseases;
- Keloid scar tendency;
- Relative – usage of anticoagulants.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the most important components of our skin. The external view of skin depends on its concentration in derma cells. Saturated with hyaluronic acid, skin looks young, elastic, smooth and lips looks tight and full. Approximately at the age of 25-30, the amount of hyaluronic acid starts to decline in derma – each year we lose 3 per cent of hyaluronic acid and notice gradual manifestation of skin ageing.
The direction of mesotherapy antiage is focused on the restoration of hyaluronic acid concentration in skin.
When performing mesotherapy, hyaluronic acid passes to skin by the way of microinjections. Injected hyaluronic acid stimulates fibroblasts, activates collagen and elastin synthesis, initiates synthesis of own hyaluronic acid, improves regenerative features of skin, slows down the ageing process. In this way, due to mesotherapy the skin tonus and elasticity is restored and skin obtains healthy colour.
Subject to skin problem, skin moisturizing and stiffening is performed, skin wrinkles are corrected, prophylaxis of skin “droop” is performed, skin radiation, antiage – skin ageing, mesolight – skin brightening, mesolifting – skin stretch procedures.
The procedures are performed in the areas of face, neck, decolletage, hands and forearms.
Mesotherapy to head skin Hair loss
The doctor selects mesotherapy healing cocktail for active revival of hair and their strength, that consists of vitamins, microelements, amino acids, growth factors individually for each patient in respect of problem, the reason of problem, the status of hair and head skin. Due to microinjections, the preparations pass to the hair follicle. Mesotherapy improves head skin microcirculation, provides hair follicles with required substances and microelements. Subject to the problem, the course of 7-12 procedure every 7 days is performed.
Mesotherapy is one of the most effective solutions of cellulite. Cellulite usually appears at the age of 25-35 and progresses gradually. There are various mesotherapic solutions for fight against cellulite. Subject to the type of cellulite, the cocktail of active materials is selected acting on the causes of cellulite and acting on already visible problem: Stimulates lipolysis (decomposition of fat), acts on precapillary sphincters and vessel walls (stimulation of liquid drainage), fibrosis (fibres that cover fat cells and, thus, form “orange peel” effect) also active materials act as prophylaxis in view of cellulite progression.
Stage 0: visually invisible even by taking the skin into wrinkle.
Stage 1: cellulite is invisible when standing or laying. Taking skin into wrinkle, the “orange peel” structure can be visible.
Stage 2: the cellulite becomes visible when standing up, whereas in the laying position it is invisible.
Stage 3: cellulite is apparent in both standing and laying positions.
Number of procedures
The number of procedures varies subject to the stage of cellulite. Before the procedure, during the cost-free consultation the doctor will consider the problem, cause of problem, clinical form, and will compose an individual schedule for the solution of problem. Usually, during exacerbation, 4-7 procedures are performed every 1-2 weeks, and later 2-4 procedures per year are recommended for prophylaxis. The duration of procedure – 20-45 minutes.
Advantages of mesotherapy
- Local in skin without passing to bloodstream, therefore does not cause any systemic side effects.
- Physiological – when performing mesotherapy the skin is not only provided with required materials but also the natural mechanisms of skin restoration are stimulated (stimulation of fibroblasts, synthesis of increased collagen and elastin).
- Successful combination with other aesthetic procedures (peelings, laser, light therapy, contour plastic).
- No age limits.
Recommendations after the procedure
- The usage of decorative cosmetics shall be avoided for 12 hours
- Bath, sauna, swimming pool, sports activities shall be avoided for several days after the procedure
- Direct sun rays shall be avoided for a week after the procedure
Mesotherapy gun U225
U225 mesogun created by French company is the most modern gun in the market. U225 mesogun is fitted with controllable functions that can fastidiously control the depth of injections and perform precise and fast injections – up to 500 per minute and 8-9 per second!
Why this gun is so popular?
1. Performed injections are painless, the feeling is more similar to touching. It becomes possible due to the following technological features:
– developed speed;
– U225 gun syringe is separated from needle. This is another distinctive feature of gun – during injection only needle moves backwards and forwards, thus, providing delicacy and avoiding pressure power causing pain.
2. Due to extremely high number of injections, the skin is additionally stimulated (stab stimulates fibroblasts responsible for collagen synthesis), the amount of injected material is considerably higher and distributed more precisely and evenly. Due to these stimulation features, the procedures become more effective and also completely painless.
3. Less procedures required – 5 in total. Due to high frequency of injections the effectiveness
of mesotherapy procedure is compared to the effect of fractional laser, during the procedure the skin is additionally injected with various cocktails and hyaluronic acid.
Injections with mezogun U225 are performed to all areas of body starting from traditional areas, for example, abdomen and thighs, as well as most sensitive areas – face, head skin.
