How is Mesotherapy Performed?
Mesotherapy is a dermatological treatment during which a practitioner uses microinjections with ultra-fine needles to deliver medications into the skin’s middle layer (mesoderm). The medications used in this treatment commonly include:
- Plant Extracts
- Prescription Medications
Mesotherapy treatment is commonly used for the following:
Mesotherapy helps rejuvenate your face by addressing issues like sun-damaged skin, sagging skin, scarring, pigmentation, etc. It works well on the facial skin, neck, and décolleté. Besides removing wrinkles and tightening the skin, this treatment also reduces facial fats and recontours the face.
When a dermatologist injects the skin with essential nutrients, like amino acids, anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins, it stimulates natural collagen and elastin. Due to collagen regeneration, the skin becomes brighter and younger-looking.
The type of Mesotherapy used for fat and cellulite reduction is known as lipolytic Mesotherapy. This non-surgical alternative to liposuction provides incredible results for reducing fat in small localized areas. It works well on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and hips. Moreover, facial fat can also be targeted with this procedure in some cases. The treatment works by injecting a potent cocktail of active ingredients into the targeted areas. As a result, it improves blood circulation in the skin and smooths the texture.
Hair Loss Treatment
Mesotherapy can also be used for treating hair loss. During this treatment, a dermatologist supplies the scalp with active ingredients which improve blood circulation. Fresh blood circulation stimulates dormant hair follicles and promotes hair regrowth.
Typically, Mesotherapy can help manage the symptoms of alopecia – an autoimmune disease causing patchy hair.
How Long Does Mesotherapy take?
The Mesotherapy procedure may last anywhere between 20-30 minutes. However, the exact treatment duration varies primarily depending on the treatment area and the problem you want to treat. Since this treatment involves multiple injections, it is performed under local anesthesia. Anesthesia is generally administered 30-40 minutes before the procedure.
Moreover, depending on the problem, each candidate needs 3-15 sessions. Each treatment will be separated for 7-10 days in the beginning. But as the skin improves, sessions will be performed every two weeks or monthly.
Benefits of Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy treatment has many benefits, such as:
- Mesotherapy treatment is safe for most skin types.
- The Mesotherapy procedure is minimally invasive.
- It does not cause severe pain.
- Mesotherapy treatment does not have any downtime.
- Numbing creams or local anesthesia can be used to minimize discomfort during the mesotherapy procedure.
- It rejuvenates dull and tired-looking skin.
- The mesotherapy procedure fights aging signs.
- It delivers nutrients deep into the skin, inducing a longer-lasting rejuvenation effect.
What are the Side Effects of Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy skin treatment does not cause severe side effects. However, some temporary side effects are as follows:
- Bumps or dark patches on the skin
Most of these side effects subside on their own after a while. If a side effect persists or worsens, please inform your dermatologist immediately.
What is the Cost of Mesotherapy?
The average cost of Mesotherapy in Dubai is 500 AED. The exact price of this treatment may, however, depend on numerous factors, such as:
- The severity of the skin problem
- Number of sessions
- Ingredients used in injections
- Desired results
- Location of the clinic
How Long Does Mesotherapy Last?
Mesotherapy offers long-lasting but non-permanent results. After 4-6 treatments spaced over 4-6 weeks, candidates will see noticeable results. Typically, the treatment results last 12-18 months. Your dermatologist may recommend repeat sessions to maintain good results.
