Are you tired of those wrinkles, bumps and blemishes on your face? Do you want to have more vibrant skin that’s smooth and rich? Well you’re in luck, because… Sorry that was a little too informercial-y. But to be honest, all this is actually true about the mesotherapy. Now you might be asking yourself “But what’s the difference between mesotherapy and other facial rejuvenation sessions that have weird names and scary procedures? Why should I take a mesotherapy session? How does it work?” Well you’re in luck, my curious friend, so keep reading to find out more.
Now we always want to know the origin of something, especially if it involves our faces. We don’t want to book a session, then find out that the procedure evolved from some kind of pre-historic dark magic or something. Well, I can tell you for a fact, that mesotherapy involves no black magic. But it did find its origin in one of the most magical places in the world: France.
Founded by a French doctor all the way back in the 1950s, mesotherapy (no, you don’t have to pronounce it with a stereotypical French accent) started out as a way to treat blood vessel illnesses. When he was treating one of his patients who had asthma using mesotherapy, he discovered that while the patient’s asthma did not improve, his hearing did. So, the doctor (by the way, he is a renowned doctor in France by the name of Dr. Michel Pistor) started making injections into the patient’s ear and noticed that overtime his hearing would get better and better. Thus, it was discovered that mesotherapy had an amazing rejuvenation quality. Actually, because of its amazing rejuvenation, the procedure is sometimes called “bio-rejuvenation,” which is harder to say, but much cooler to the ear. And so, the French ended up creating this amazing procedure, adding to the grand list of French things we really like (except their food, it’s a little weird).
“All that sounds great and whatever, but how does the procedure work?” Oh, I see you’re in a rush. “Yeah, I’m trying to get my face ready for Aruba.” Well, you’ve got your priorities down, haven’t you? Well I’m sure you’ll be happy to hear that the mesotherapy treatment involves injection (yay?). But don’t worry, as with many other injectable facials, this one is almost just as painless, meaning it’s not painful at all.
The procedure involves a small injection into your face (yay?). The needle will penetrate the skin and go into the mesoderm, which is the middle layer of your skin. The needle will then inject small amounts of medicine into the mesoderm. In case you were wondering (which I believe you kind of did), the mesoderm is the layer responsible for the damage of the skin’s surface. When the skin is damaged, it is the mesoderm which is in charge of the recovery. However, since damage is never spread out evenly, the mesoderm heals unevenly, leaving behind all those annoying bumps, wrinkles and scars on the surface of the skin. The medicine in the injection actually helps the mesoderm rejuvenate the layer, smoothing out the damage on the surface, leaving it smooth and even, looking fresher than ever.
But I can tell the idea of being injected into the face still scares you. Well, don’t worry, doctors aren’t complete monsters. During the session, they will apply numbing cream to your face, you really won’t feel anything. Also the needle is really small. Yeah, you know how in those horror movies, there’s always this really big, old needle from the Civil War or something? Yeah this is modern medicine, so you can expect the needle to be very small. So, remember: there is absolutely no pain, maybe just a tiny pinch, which I’m sure every one of you is brave enough to handle.
“All right, getting injected in the face, that sounds fun and all, but how long will this take?” Have you ever gotten a vaccination? (Hopefully.) Well the procedure itself takes pretty a little longer than that, approximately 10 to 15 minutes. The doctor will make multiple injections in your face (yay?) and that it. Now, keep in mind, like all good things in life, especially if they’re French, just one session is not enough. You will need to come in for multiple session in order to see clear results. Initially, you will need to come once every 7 to 10 days, but as time goes by, you’ll only need to visit the doctor once every 2-3 weeks, or even once a month. So, if you’ve been planning on that lunch with the boss, or participating in a bowling tournament, or you’re just really lazy, you don’t have to worry about weekly visits to the doctor with hours of waiting time. Just get in there, get your injection and you’re free to go back to binging on Netflix.
“All right, you had me at bowling tournament, but isn’t this dangerous?” Well consider these factors. The ingredients for what the doctor will inject vary from clinic to clinic, but pretty much all of them feature some vitamins, nutrients, which naturally rejuvenate your skin. You don’t have to worry about the doctors giving you some kind of alien medication from the Moon or something. Most of this stuff is natural. You simply have to research on which clinic to choose from, since again, they use different ingredients.
The procedure has shown great results on a whopping 95% of the people that have used it. Keep in mind, everyone’s skin is different, so you never know how well the procedure will work, but with a ratio of 19 to 1 (95%) success, you can expect to see some great results.
The side-effects are just minor redness and bruising, but they disappear in less than 2 weeks, leaving you with smooth skin, which is richer in color and fresh. The results are simply staggering and best of all. The procedure is widely known for its efficiency and success.
So, if you’re not afraid of needles, if you have 15 minutes to spare, and if you want richer, more vibrant skin, make sure to give mesotherapy a try. Again, the results have shown that the procedure is very successful, and best of all, it regenerates your skin from below, leaving it smooth and even, and it lasts for a very long time, so you won’t have to worry about making appointments every year. So, book a session, sign up for that bowling tournament (yay?) and get ready for your new, vibrant face.
