Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used to treat various injuries and medical conditions. This medical specialty targets problem areas with microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Tiny "medicinal bullets" are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) that are highly specific to the condition being treated.
Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. As your skin ages, circulation decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hinders your body's ability to flush out toxins. This is what drives premature aging and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.
After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Mesotherapy can be used as a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimens, including Botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts
Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. The procedure can be used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the face, legs, abdomen, arms and hands. In Europe, women often start treatments in their thirties, but mesotherapy can prove valuable during any stage of a woman's life.
