WHAT IS MESOTHERAPY?
Mesotherapy is an amazingly versatile treatment that enables a bespoke combination of powerful vitamins, minerals or hyaluronic acid to be injected into the lower layers of the skin, creating a filler effect that adds volume to skin. The blend of nutrients, combined with micro-needling technology, can help to trigger the production of new collagen. Fresh skin cells replace aged or damaged ones, leaving you with a firmer, more toned and radiant complexion.

Huge in China, Russia, Italy, Spain, injectables by brands such as JUVÉDERM, FILLMED and Restylane use a gel form of hyaluronic acid bound in a gel carrier to add volume to the dermal layer of the skin. Since hyaluronic acid is something our bodies already produce, it is considered safe for use in all types of injectables. With a few pricks of a needle, the hyaluronic acid draws in water to the area and creates a filling effect, adding volume to sunken areas, smoothing out fine lines, and decreasing shadows—then slowly dissolves harmlessly over the course of one year.
Side effects are minimal: you may experience slight swelling or bruising that can last for two or three days, and small nodules marking the injected areas may show up. The most important thing to remember when getting any kind of filler or injectable is to go to a trained, experienced beautician, dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Topical application of only SPF and mineral make up are recommended in the 24 hours post-treatment.

WHAT TYPES OF CONCERNS DOES MESOTHERAPY ADDRESS?
The combination of vitamins and minerals can be tailored to address a variety of concerns including fine lines, wrinkles, dry skin, cellulite and stubborn stretchmarks. Mesotherapy’s bespoke blend of vitamin injections can help to encourage cell growth, improve circulation, dissolve fat cells and stimulate the production of collagen.
Dehydration dramatically impacts the texture of your skin and can cause a flaky, wrinkled, dull and unhealthy appearance. Mesotherapy can be a great solution for dehydrated skin as it delivers tailored vitamins and minerals into the lower layers of the epidermis helping to nourish and revitalise skin on a deeper level.
All treatments are tailored to the individual, and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one-on-one consultation with our Beauty Team prior to your treatment to discuss your options.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH MESOTHERAPY?
Mesotherapy can deliver fantastic anti-ageing, firming and skin smoothing results to the face, neck, décolletage and body. It can also be used to target stubborn localised fat and cellulite on common trouble areas such as the abdomen, thighs, legs and arms.
