Beauty and Ageing
Mesotherapy is a technique that uses injections of fillers, vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin. It is very effective in improving acne scars. Some patients may need repeat treatments with a variable time gap in between, Michel Pistor, a doctor in France, developed the technique in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. In the years since, it has gained popularity in the United States and other parts of the world.
Today, mesotherapy is used to:
Fade wrinkles and lines
Tighten loose skin
Recontour the body
Lighten pigmented skin
Treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss
The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.
