The Fundamentals of Mesotherapy
What is Mesotherapy?
Over the years, mesotherapy in Calgary has become popular for its non-surgical approach to cosmetic treatment.
Mesotherapy lies in correcting issues like poor circulation and inflammation from skin damage or superficial fatty layers.
It utilizes multiple microinjections into the middle layer of your skin, penetrating only 1 to 4 millimeters into the skin along with a local anesthetic. Hence, its reputation as a fairly painless procedure!
What’s inside these injections varies depending on your treatment.
Solutions may include:
- Pharmaceutical medicines – vasodilators and antibiotics
- Hormones – calcitonin and thyroxine
- Enzymes – collagenase and hyaluronidase
- Vitamins and minerals
- Plant extracts
Before a procedure, knowing what type of solutions can help bring up questions to your medi spa about what they do and their effects. This can help avoid the exacerbation of current conditions while ensuring you get the best results.
What can Mesotherapy Treat?
Based on its technique, it can treat various cosmetic issues. Many you wouldn’t expect!
Mesotherapy can treat the following:
- Fat reduction from your chin, neck, stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face.
- Minimizes cellulite
- Fades away wrinkles and lines
- Tightens loose skin
- Recontours the body
- Brighten pigmented skin
- Treats hair loss such as alopecia
What to Expect from Mesotherapy
Any Preparation Needed?
Naturally, you will meet with your medical practitioner before the actual procedure.
A skilled practitioner will want to get an in-depth understanding of your expectations, questions, and concerns.
They endeavor to avoid any side effects such as:
- bumps from the injection site
- dark skin patches
Avoid aspirin or any other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs a week before your procedure. Pain relievers can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising during mesotherapy.
What About Aftercare?
Afterward, you can leave your appointment and continue with your day. However, some might need to take a day off because of swelling and pain from injection sites.
Plus, you will most likely be going in for more sessions to get your desired results from mesotherapy. Depending on progress and the nature of your treatment, you may need to return another 3 to 15 times. In initial cases, you would get injections for 7 to 10 days.
Sessions can get reduced to once every two weeks or once a month from improving skin treatments.
Mesotherapy is far from scary, especially when you know what it entails. Enjoy what mesotherapy has to offer – check it out for yourself!
