Mesotherapy is a modern and widely used method in aesthetic dermatology, which along with hyaluronic fillers and other injectable procedures has revolutionized aesthetic medicine. The skillful combination of mesotherapy with other aesthetic procedures is the modern adequate counteraction to the aging process and the preservation of a youthful appearance without surgical intervention.
What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a medical technique created in 1952 by the French doctor Michel Pastor. It was officially recognized in 1987 by the French Academy of Medicine as part of traditional medicine. Mesotherapy is the micro-injection of cocktails of active substances /vitamins, coenzymes, minerals, amino acids, nucleic bases, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, etc./ into the superficial, middle or deeper layer of the skin depending on the treatment area, products and techniques used.
Mesotherapy provides precise infiltration of active substances that facilitate cell metabolism, stimulate collagen and elastin biosynthesis, control pigment formation processes and restore effective local microcirculation. The injection during the mesotherapy procedure is performed by various manual techniques or with a special mesopistol. The number of treatments is determined by the application and medical protocol.
Applications of mesotherapy in aesthetic dermatology
Mesotherapy of the face and body treats many skin conditions such as blemishes, sun spots, skin blemishes, birthmarks, acne, fistulas, acne scars, stretch marks from childbirth, stretch marks that occur with weight gain, herpes zoster. It affects the aging of the facial skin, smoothes wrinkles, lifts, hydrates and evens the complexion.
Mesotherapy for hydration and rejuvenation of the face, neck and décolleté
For patients with dehydrated and faded skin without radiance, mesotherapy for hydration and rejuvenation gives excellent results. The main problem in such conditions is depleted hyaluronic acid in the skin. Therefore, the main ingredient of mesococktails injected in mesotherapy for hydration and rejuvenation are hyaluronic acid in combination with vitamins and minerals. The injection is made into the superficial layer of the skin or directly into the dermis. The procedure restores the lost hyaluronic acid content in the skin, revitalizes, tones, firms and hydrates, giving the patient a radiant and youthful appearance.
Mesotherapy with botulinum toxin - mesobotox
One of the manifestations of aging is a decrease in the openings around the eyes and mouth due to sagging of the skin around them. The goal of mesobotox is to relax the correct muscles and cause the eyes and mouth to reopen without loss of facial expression and facial expressions. The procedure is also called a botulinum toxin mesolift.
Mesotherapy for face lifting - mesolifting
Mesolifting vitalizes and brightens the face, smoothes wrinkles, improves skin elasticity and restores its natural composition. Mesolifting activates the synthesis of elastin and collagen, thus firming, smoothing and restoring the skin. Mesolifting is a procedure that can be applied to any part of the face, neck, décolletage and arm area.
Mesotherapy for the treatment of stretch marks
Mesotherapy for the treatment of stretch marks regenerates the skin and reduces both white and red stretch marks. Stretch marks occur when there is damage to the subdermal collagen as well as damage and dehydration of the elastin fiber matrix. The active ingredients used in mesotherapy for stretch marks stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin, tighten the collagen matrix and hydrate certain areas of the skin.
Key benefits of mesotherapy
One of the main advantages of mesotherapy is that the method allows the desired active substances to be injected directly into the treatment area for maximum results. Thus, the desired effect is seen immediately and over time the effect increases until the active ingredients are exhausted. Depending on the products used in the mesotherapy, the skin gains brightness and vitality immediately after the procedure and elasticity and firmness in the medium and long term. The lack of colour and differences in skin tone diminish over time.
Active substances used in mesotherapy
There are a variety of mesotherapy products on the market, with different compositions aimed at correcting one or more skin problems. Some contain anti-aging vitamins and minerals and antioxidants such as A, D, E, selenium, ginkgo biloba, hyaluronic acid, peptides, coenzymes, fatty acids, amino acids and growth factors together. Some products contain stem cells, while others use salmon-derived collagen to refresh cells, vitamins and selenium to plump skin and balance moisture. The most common ingredients of mesotherapy products contain: hyaluronic acid; vitamins A, C, D, E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6; magnesium; selenium; copper; nucleic acid; amino acids or zinc. For some active products 1 treatment is sufficient, while for others 3-4 treatments may be needed at intervals.

How the procedure proceeds
The method of mesotherapy consists of three different injection techniques depending on the depth at which the active substances are introduced into the skin. In each procedure, one, two or even all three techniques can be used simultaneously, depending on the desired result. Therefore, each procedure begins with an aesthetic consultation, during which we make an overall assessment of the patient’s condition – age, skin condition of the face, neck and décolleté. We then assess the patient’s expectations and develop an individual plan for the application of mesotherapy. The skin is then cleansed and disinfected before the application of an anesthetic cream to reduce the sensation of pain in the treatment area.
After the procedure, the skin appears more vibrant and bright. If necessary, the mesotherapy is repeated at intervals of 1-4 weeks. Treatments can be done every 3-6 months, averaging 4-6 sessions. Results from mesotherapy begin to appear after the first treatment. After the treatment is completed, the skin renewal effect continues.
Within the first 24 hours after mesotherapy:
- The treatment area should not be washed;
- Do not exercise and avoid physical exertion;
- Avoid excessively hot environments (solarium, Turkish bath, sauna, etc.).
- Avoid alcohol consumption and smoking;
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight
- Consume plenty of water
Is mesotherapy painfull procedure
Mesotherapy is an injectable procedure in which the active product is introduced into the skin by injection. The sensation of pain depends on the individual tolerance of each patient and can vary widely. The application of an anaesthetic cream and the use of special extremely fine needles (such as those for insulin) greatly reduces discomfort during the procedure.
