To retain the youth and fight the ageing has long been a desirable goal for men and women. The cosmetic surgery industry evolved around the idea of undoing and minimizing the signs of ageing. The idea is to tighten and rejuvenate the skin to help you achieve the youthful look.
Signs of Aging in Humans
- As you age the fat under your skin depletes, your skin’s ability to heal itself deteriorate and muscles holding your skin lose their strength.
- This leads to sagging of skin and wrinkles, which are the most visible signs of ageing that men and women fear.
- The fine line around your eyes and lips become visible and loose skin under your eyes makes your eyes look puffy and tired.
- Your skin starts to become dull and dry and loses the glow.
- Problems like dark spots and hyperpigmentation start to appear due to a shift in hormones and disturbance in bodily functions.
A few decades ago celebrities started getting plastic surgery done which promised dramatic results but if such a treatment was to go wrong, the results were irreversible. So the clients started inquiring doctors about procedures that were less risky and possibly reversible or at least not permanent so they can be undone if they didn’t find the end results aesthetically pleasing.
Some clients were simply afraid of going under the knife and wanted some less invasive options to attain their goals. This led to the demand for non-invasive skin rejuvenation techniques which yielded less pronounced results and desired aesthetic standards were achieved after several repetitive sessions of the treatment. This offered the clients control over the degree of enhancements they wanted to achieve from the treatments.
Mesotherapy is one such non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique that helps you achieve antiaging benefits of plastic surgery without going under the knife.
It is quickly gaining popularity because the results are very natural-looking and immediate while the procedure is short and non-invasive with very mild discomfort. Initially, this treatment was sorted only by celebrities and social media influencer but now this luxury is accessible for the men and women from every walk of life.
What is Mesotherapy?
The term mesotherapy comes from the fact the nutrients used in this treatment are directly injected into the second layer of skin also called mesoderm. Our skin has three layers:
- Ectoderm (the outermost layer),
- Mesoderm derm (the middle layer)
- Endoderm (the internal layer).
Through several tiny needles little doses of vitamins, hormones, enzymes, and natural herbal extracts are injected in the skin. The injections can contain up to 50 ingredients all of which should be FDA approved since there is no FDA approved formula for this treatment. This is the reason you should only choose a qualified and certified practitioner for mesotherapy.
How do these injections work?
Most practitioners use handheld guns which are capable of injecting several needles simultaneously into your skin. You should expect some minor bleeding but it will be painless as a numbing cream is applied in the preparation phase of the procedure.
The fine needles are pushed into the already mapped out skin of your face and tiny holes are punctured into the upper layer of skin. The nutrients are directly delivered underneath the skin of the problematic area and are readily absorbed by the blood vessels and mesoderm. Results are visible immediately and become more pronounced over time.
What are the benefits of Mesotherapy?
These injections supply the essential nutrients to the skin which help in nourishment, hydration and improve the blood circulation in your face. They also stimulate the natural production of collagen which helps make your skin tighter and plumper. It also induces the self-healing of the skin, therefore the older dead skin cells are replaced by new healthier skin cells. Some ingredients in the skin help water retention inside the skin layers, making it look more hydrated, moisturized and fresh. The procedure essentially makes your skin more tight, elastic and healthier. As a result, there is a visible reduction in wrinkles, loose skin, and uneven skin tone. This helps your face attain the youthful glowing look you had years ago. The treatment is sometimes used in combination with Platelet Plasma Rich (PPR) therapy for the best results.
