Why is Mesotherapy different from other skin needling treatments?
The uniquely designed cartridge follows the contour of the skin and makes it easier to target problem areas, including wrinkles and around the eye.
This gentle treatment will not cause unnecessary trauma to healthy skin so, unlike other skin needling programmes, redness will subside within quickly, leaving your skin visibly improved.
Mesotherapy stimulates your natural collagen and elastin stores and will not scar or snag the skin.
What does it feel like, does it hurt?
The skin needling cartridge has plastic needles so are less invasive than other skin needling techniques and it feels more like a hard brush than a needle, so during treatment there is no sharpness you’d associate with needling, and the vibration feels tickly until you get used to it. There are areas which are more uncomfortable (personally I find the bony areas of the jaw line and top of the forehead the most uncomfortable) but it’s not unmanageable and I reduce pressure in these areas to make it as comfortable as possible.
The sensation of this treatment is more intense than MesoME and at times feels a little sharper, but the results… they’re impressive, instant and speak for themselves!
How many treatments are needed?
A course of 6 treatments are recommended. The first 4-5 treatments should be taken weekly to get your skin to its best, then monthly treatments to maintain.
MesoME can be done weekly, whereas Meso+ cannot be done more than once a month, so for an intense course which delivers maximum results a combination of MesoME and Meso+ is recommended.
Sensitivities and allergies?
If you have any allergies just let me know and I can let you know if this is an issue. Those with a nickle allergy should have a patch test done.
What are the aftercare guidelines:
• Do not put makeup on the area for at least 6 hours (ideally not until the following day). Mineral makeup can be worn after 2 hours if needed
• Wear an SPF30 or more at all times, the sun causes a lot of damage to the skin and will
• Don’t go to the gym, pool, saunas or steam rooms for at least 24 hours after treatment
• You can use any skincare products, but will benefit from the treatment more if you use one containing Hyaluronic Acid
• Homecare products are available to purchase to improve your results even further
How will I look at the end of the treatment?
There is very little downtime with this treatment. You may look slightly red immediately after but this will subside in a few hours (quicker with MesoME than Meso+ as it penetrates deeper). The skin starts healing immediately and you should notice a difference within 2 treatments. If we have worked a little more on wrinkles or small scars the redness in these areas may take a day to subside. You may experience some peeling and this is very normal, it is the dehydrated skin leaving the stratum corneum.
What skin care routine do you recommend afterwards?
Cell Biologique homecare products can be purchased to use at home, these are optional of course, but will improve and extend your results further. I can advise you on what products would be best for you.
Why is Mesotherapy better than derma rolling?
Mesotherapy is less invasive; we do not need to use numbing creams on the skin which means the products are able to work better. The contoured needle head means you can be more specific in your treatments and target finer areas so you can go around the under eye area and right up to the lash line.
How far apart are the treatments?
For the first 4-5 weeks it is recommended that the treatment is once a week. Afterwards it should be carried out every 1-2 months to maintain optimal results.
Can I have Mesotherapy if I have Botox or fillers?
Yes. It is best to leave at least 2 weeks pre/post Botox treatment before a Mesotherapy treatment and at least 21 days after fillers before having a Mesotherapy treatment. However, Mesotherapy has been shown to improve the longevity of Botox and fillers so it works well with them.
What areas can be treated with Mesotherapy?
With MesoME, any area of the skin can be treated, but the most popular areas for treatment include:
– The face, throat, décolleté (chest area) and back of the hands.
Meso+ is just for the face and neck.
