Area: Face, neck, decolette,
Procedure: 30 min
Frequency: 3 treatments every week for best results, therapy should then be repeated every 6 months
Goal: Facial firming, improves skin flaccidity
Reduction in the levels of hyaluronic acid is one of the main reasons the skin gets flaccid and looses elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is a jelly-like substance that fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers, and provides cushioning and lubrication. It also provides vital hydration to the skin and protects against ultraviolet radiation.
As we age the fibrous matrix that acts as a scaffold for all of the tissues gets loose leading to saggy and droopy skin. The enzymes responsible for maintenance of this scaffold start malfunctioning and the body is not capable to fix this problem without external involvement.
Of equal importance is the injection process facilitated by a small needle; when dermis is mechanically penetrated it creates a focal inflammatory zone, which leads to migration of fibroblasts to the area of injury, and the repair process induces new collage deposition, and hence tightening at the site of injection. Because multiple injections are usually performed this acts as additional stimulator for collagen production and facial tightening and subsequent facial lifting.
Science Behind Mesotherapy Treatment and Results:
The 1% hyaluronic acid that is contained in this treatment forms a hydrating gel, which increases the intercellular space and maintains the elasticity and shape of the skin.
DMAE was initially used topically to produce lifting effect; it is a precursor of acetylcholine ,a neuro-mediator, which plays an important role in the skin metabolism. Keratinocytes, fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, and endothelial cells have membrane receptors, which respond to acetylcholine. The tensile effect of DMAE stimulates membrane receptors of fibroblasts and repairs protein cross-linking between collagen and elastin.
The lifting effect can be seen immediately after the first session at it attenuates and smoothes wrinkles, fights flaccidity and improves skin elasticity.
