Mesotherapy To Rejuvenate Tired Skin
Mesotherapy simply means needling treatment of the dermis. It is an absolutely fantastic way to rejuvenate tired skin. It was popular in France for many years before becoming commonly known and is based on the observation that skin which has been ‘needled’ will produce more collagen in response to the controlled trauma of repeated needling. It was noticed that skin that had been tattooed (for replacement of pigment in vitiligo) was in better condition than surrounding un-tattooed skin.
Using The Latest Technology
For a while, mesotherapy was done using a single needle, which was used to repeatedly, gently, pierce the skin. This, obviously, is time consuming and operator dependent and was quickly superseded by the Dermaroller. This is a plastic rolling device with multiple small needles, which pierce the skin as it is rolled over the skin. This, too, has been superseded by electric needling devices. The Dermapen, which we use, is just one of many available. It has many advantages. Not least, a reduction in pain during treatment.
Introducing Active Ingredients
Mesotherapy provides an opportunity to introduce active ingredients through the tiny needle channels created in the skin. Popular agents include vitamins, hyaluronic acid. We like to use a U225 MesoGun intradermal injector, together with a Dermapen to deliver PRP treatment.
