Mesotherapy is a treatment that stimulates the mesoderm, or middle layer of the skin, which will, in turn, relieve a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. The connective tissue of the body, primarily the collagen, which makes up the bone, ligaments, tendons, and muscle, is derived from the mesoderm. The mesoderm also involves the fat or adipose tissue and connective tissues around organs.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a very natural filler solution, made of your own blood, otherwise known as the “Vampire” lift. It must be performed by a licensed health care clinician who is permitted to do injections.
The doctor takes a small amount of your blood (with a normal blood test) and he centrifugates it and separates out the red and white blood cells, plasma and platelets. The major advantage of PRP is that it involves no foreign substances, because your own growth factors extracted from your own blood are used. Mesotherapy’s cosmetic application treats various skin conditions such as acne, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles. It moisturizes, tones, tightens and rejuvenates the skin, giving a younger look. Also, improves the microcirculation, the oxygenation of the cells and the expulsion of toxins.
It can be performed on the face, neck, décolleté, hands and body skin for the treatment of skin laxity, as it offers natural rejuvenation and refreshment.The procedure takes place in the office. The pain factor is minimal. There is no downtime associated with this treatment. Some patients may experience mild bruising and swelling, but these side effects are temporary.
Although you may see a change after your first treatment, you may also require a series of sessions to obtain optimum results. The number of Mesotherapy treatments needed depends upon many variables, including the condition, the abnormal physiology causing the condition, as well as the chronicity of the problem.
How often does this treatment have to be repeated?
The results of PRP are not permanent. A natural degradation will occur over time. You will see results with in a few weeks but your optimal results will be in a couple of months. It is a slow but steady improvement. However, the results are really worth waiting for especially since they last about 1 year.
Mesotherapy is considered relatively safe and most patients are able to resume daily activities immediately following treatment.
